Rumer Willis: 'Don't be too tough on dad, he can't hear'

August 28th, 2013 3:01am EDT
Bruce Willis
Bruce Willis' actress daughter Rumer has defended her dad from critics who have blasted him for appearing awkward in interviews, revealing he probably can't hear the questions properly.

She insists the Die Hard star doesn't go out of his way to be less than talkative when promoting movies, but a hearing loss issue means he is always struggling to make out what is being said by interviewers.

Rumer, who is Willis' eldest daughter with ex-wife Demi Moore, explains, "I think part of the problem is sometimes he can't hear... because he shot a gun off next to his ear when he was doing Die Hard ...

Bruce Willis
Bruce Willis impressed his onscreen love interest Mary-Louise Parker when he killed a bee that was bothering her by shooting it inches from her face.

The Die Hard star showed off what makes him a movie hero when he took aim at the buzzing pest on the set of RED 2, and reduced his co-star to a quivering mess in the process.

She recalls, "I'm scared of bugs and there was a bee... and he whipped his prop gun out of his pocket and blew it away... Shot it... A blank is enough to take out a bee.

"Because he's Bruce Willis, he can shoot a bee and it's not gonna take out part of my nose or somet...

Outspoken filmmaker Kevin Smith has reignited his feud with his one-time leading man Bruce Willis, branding him the toughest person he's ever worked with.

Smith directed Willis on 2009 comedy Cop Out, but claimed soon after the film's release that he had a hard time working with him on set and labeled the former Die Hard star a "f**king d**k."

Willis tried to distance himself from the feud, insisting there was no bad blood between the pair, but Smith has fuelled the argument once more with a rant on Twitter.com.

He writes, "Who am I talking about when I write this: 'He turned out to be...

Hung
It's been said that a hero is only as good as their antagonist. On HBO's Hung, that juicy role falls to actor Stephen Amell, who recently sat down with me to dish about the series.

Amell plays Jason, who is the chief competition of Hung's main character, Ray Drecker. He's got a winning smile but a lot more going on behind it. Read on to find out what's in store for his character in season three and what it's like being the allegedly bad guy, as well as what type of role Amell would love to play.

Director Justin Lin Turns Down 'Die Hard 5'

Justin Lin
Director Justin Lin has turned down a fifth Die Hard movie - so he can plot Arnold Schwarzenegger's comeback in the next Terminator film instead.

The filmmaker was asked to make another Die Hard sequel, which focuses on Bruce Willis' maverick cop John McClane, but he declined.

He explains, "For many of the projects, I feel very privileged, but I just know it wasn't the right situation. And the first Die Hard changed me as a kid when I watched it. But Die Hard 5 is just not something that I'm going to do, or I'm interested in."

However Lin, who is in demand in Hollywood following the b...

Kevin Smith Blasts Bruce Willis Over 'Cop Out' Role

Director Kevin Smith has launched a scathing attack on Bruce Willis, branding the actor "soul crushing" to work with.

The Die Hard star led the cast of Smith's 2010 comedy Cop Out, but the film was panned by critics and the moviemaker subsequently compared the scathing reviews to "bullying". Smith has now revealed he was unimpressed with the actor's attitude on set and his alleged reluctance to promote the picture.

Five Non-Traditional Christmas Movies

Die_Hard
Every Christmas I face the same question: how many times can I watch the same old batch of Christmas movies before I get tired of them?  Answer: three.  To that end, I've compiled a list of five non-traditional Christmas movies for you to turn to when you get tired of TBS's 24-hour marathon of "A Christmas Story."

5 - Die Hard (1988)

Outside of “A Christmas Story,” “Die Hard” is my go-to Christmas movie.  “But ‘Die Hard’ is an action movie!” you might say, and you’d be correct.  But “Die Hard” is special, because it’s an action movie set during Christmas.  “Die Hard,” starring Bruce Wil...

There was a funny action movie many years ago where a heroic sidekick, nearing retirement age, would say, “I’m too old for this shit.” They made four of those movies and he never got too old for that shit. In his new movie Red, Bruce Willis plays a CIA agent who actually was retired, until he has to spring back into action.

“The word is certainly used and used in the title of the film: Retired Extremely Dangerous,” Willis said. “It’s commented on a couple of times, but when you see the film it’s right now. It’s hip. Karl [Urban] and I went at it in one of the toughest fights I’ve ever foug...

TV Shows On The Verge Of Jumping The Shark

July 15th, 2009 11:23am EDT

The concept of 'jumping the shark' is a fatal one for many involved in television. It all began in the tragic episode of 'Happy Days' in which iconic character, The Fonz, literally jumps over a shark, thus placing a death toll on the rest of the series. Decades later, some TV writers have playfully used the term in decidedly ironic tones, both 'The X-Files' and 'Supernatural' have episodes titled 'Jump the Shark' (Note: a portion of 'Supernatural's' crew are 'X-Files' alum) that tiptoe the line of throwing a series into oblivion.

Hyper-Masculine Action Films Are Violent, Ridiculous & So Much Fun

April 15th, 2009 12:52pm EDT
Fast & Furious
According to Hollywood and its demographic cinema box office soothsayers, the only people who have the ability to purchase tickets to and actively watch an action film are men and teenage boys. They believe that women, for the most part, cannot watch these films - unless their boyfriends, husbands, male friends, etc. have explicitly gave them entrance to the theater or made the magical DVD player start the film.

Either way, it is assumed that men are the ones with the keys to the magic that is "boom and vroom." Hollywood types with these lofty gendered assumptions are most definite...

Overrated & Underrated Oscar Winners For Best Picture

Saying a Best Picture winner is overrated is quite simple. If you think a movie is terrible and it won Best Picture ipso facto it is overrated. But what about an underrated Best Picture winner?

By definition, it should be impossible for a Best Picture winner to be underrated. Why? Because they already won - so their greatness is recognized. It's like having an underrated Hall-of-Famer or underrated Adult Film Award Winner, it should be impossible.

That simply isn't true, however. There are several Best Picture winners that have been completely forgotten over the years, many...
