There’s a meme online where fans of the movie, Die Hard, call it a “Christmas Movie,” just because the plot of the film takes place around Christmas time. Last night, Comedy Central’s Roast of Bruce Willis gave everyone a chance to make fun of the movie star for the first time.
Thankfully, Mr. Willis took it all in good stride. Regarding the comments online, the legendary action movie – according to Bruce – is not a Christmas flick, “It’s a god d*mn Bruce Willis movie!”
The taping of the roast was the same as usual. Bruce sat back while he awaited jokes at his expense. The star took shots from the likes of Edward Norton, and even his ex-wife, Demi Moore.
Demi Moore’s jokes about the legendary actor got the most intense reactions. The star joked that she was married to Willis for the very first three Die Hard movies, and then when they got divorced, the “last two sucked” – surprise, surprise!
Demi joked that their 12-year-marriage was some of the best times of her life and that Bruce was one of her “top three husbands.”
As you may know, Demi was married to Ashton Kutcher, Bruce Willis, and Freddy Moore. She broke it off with Freddy Moore all the way back in 1985, Bruce Willis in the year 2000, and with Ashton Kutcher in 2011.
Bruce took the stage, while annoyingly referring to himself in the first-person, and said his fans would know “how this works.” The actor explained he would get beat up for the first hour and a half, and then come back and teach everyone a lesson.
Bruce is one of the most iconic action stars of all time, if not the most. His career began all the way back in 1987 in the film, Blind Date before he went on to achieve mega success in Die Hard in 1988.
