Bruce Willis is kind of the worst. Okay, definitely the worst. He’s a drunk, greedy asshole – but wait He’s got a charitable side, too! In an effort to clear his good name (or perhaps just to be a decent human being), Bruce has been providing meals to firefighters in Beaver Creek, Idaho who have been working to put out wildfires in the area for the past month.
Having arranged for a catering company to provide meals for the 450 firefighters, here’s what Bruce had to say in a statement (because you definitely release a statement tooting your own horn for charitable work, of course):
“Like all of my fellow Idaho residents, I want to extend my most sincere and grateful thanks to the firefighters and first-responders which include the helicopter and airplane pilots who have been flying for day in and day out, who risked life and limb to battle the horrific Beaver Creek Fire in Idaho.
“You are the men and women who put your lives at risk to protect ours on a daily basis, but it is at moments like these that your heroism comes to the forefront of our nation’s consciousness.”
“On behalf of me and my family, please know that there will never be enough words to express our deepest appreciation for your ever-present dedication and bravery.”

Bruce Willis sucks. We’re all aware of that, right? Beyond the whole “Pay me $1 million PER DAY!” fiasco (which thankfully got his ass fired from The Expendables franchise), he’s now claimed that he hates action movies and they’re boring. You know, even though that’s exactly what made him rich and famous. Fuuuuuck this dude.
From XLS Magazine (via Digital Spy):
“Explosions are one of the most boring parts of my job. When you have seen a few fireballs, it’s not exciting anymore. I know part of my audience enjoys the explosions, but to be honest, I’m a bit bored of it now.
“I am very clear with who I am. I work in all sorts of films, but the action movies are the ones that generate the most revenue. I like to earn lots of money from those, but I do all types: small productions, megaprojects, medium sized, even science fiction.
Willis added that he doesn’t “spend the whole day counting bank notes”, and only thinks about his wealth when journalists quiz him on the subject.
LOL I think the translation on this one might be slightly messed up, as well, because this seems like such a bizarre way to talk. “I like to earn lots of money from those”? Weird. I don’t even know what to make of his stupid ass anymore. He needs to shut up and fade into obscurity now.

Sylvester Stallone’s twitter crusade against Bruce Willis is making a whole lot more sense now that we have all the details. Stallone tweeted that Willis was, “GREEDY AND LAZY” and that he was “out” and Harrison Ford was “in” (and this was followed with many exclamation points.) He was referring to The Expendables 3, and now we know why Willis was out.
According to The Hollywood Report, Bruce Willis wanted…get ready for this…$1 million PER DAY. They said no.
And you know what’s almost crazier? They were willing to pay him $3 million for four days!
Willis was offered $3 million for four days of consecutive work on location in Bulgaria for the film. “He said he’d drop out unless he got $4 million,” this source close to the production says. “A million dollars a day. Stallone and everybody else involved said no.”
Stallone then quickly reached out to Ford, who was game to join the Expendables cast.
The insider adds, “I think [Willis] was pretty surprised he was replaced in 72 hours by Harrison Ford – a better actor, a much nicer person and a more interesting direction for the film.”
I was going to make a joke about how Bruce Willis wound up being expendable, but then saw the top rated comment on that post was basically the same joke. I’m guessing EVERYONE is making that joke right now.
Bruce Willis should be f-cking ashamed, and so should the producers and studio for offering him as much as they did.

I love it when celebrities get passive aggressive and take their issues with another celebrity to twitter. And that’s exactly what’s happening here, except it’s with celebs I didn’t even think knew how to use twitter. You guys ready for this? Sylvester Stallone is angry with Bruce Willis, and he took it to twitter. He tweeted,
WILLIS OUT… HARRISON FORD IN !!!! GREAT NEWS !!!!! Been waiting years for this!!!!
He then added,
GREEDY AND LAZY …… A SURE FORMULA FOR CAREER FAILURE
Amazing! I gotta say I am so over Bruce Willis, especially after this (and that’s not the even the first time as of late he was rude to an interviewer for no reason). And I’ve always LOVED Harrison Ford — didn’t think he was ever “out” — so my sheer joy is with Stallone in this fight. Although I guess it’s not really a fight considering that Bruce Willis isn’t fighting back…I don’t think he actually has a twitter.
Let there be no doubt, Stallone’s rep confirmed that this indeed was Sylvester Stallone tweeting insults directed at Bruce Willis. (USA Today)
Who do you prefer: Stallone or Willis?

Bruce Willis is a bit of a non-entity these days. Sure, he’s still getting roles, but it’s far from his hey day and no one really gives a shit anymore. Anyway, if you want one way to make people give a shit, act really crazy during an interview. That’ll get ‘em talking, for sure! While doing a press junket for their new film RED 2, Mary Louise Parker (girl, lay off that Botox – you’re too beautiful!) and Bruce Willis (bro, lay off that Botox – you look like wax!) sat down to chat to Magic 105.4‘s Jamie Edwards about it. Only problem is, Bruce didn’t do much in the way of answering any questions… and he seemed kinda drunk.
- Bruce claims that he can “can hardly keep his mind on this interview” as he looks blankly around him.
- After becoming distracted by something outside the window, Bruce tells the interviewer to “go ahead” since he seems like he has “some great questions there”.
- Mary Louise Parker seems increasingly embarrassed/distressed.
This whole thing is a disaster and very weird, but hey, I guess we’re talking about Bruce Willis now!

Points for creativity, though, in calling the film Twihard: With a Vengeance.
Watch it and tell me if you don’t think it’s forced, uncomfortable, and really obvious that Bruce is just trying *so hardsies* to be relevant.
