Yet another interview in which Bruce Willis doesn’t give a shit about his new (possibly shit) movie
Bruce Willis is doing this more and more recently. Turning up to interviews to promote his new movie, then looking like he’d rather be nailing his own nuts to a table. Check out the video below in which he gets interviewed by radio station, Magic 105.4.
In a way, I love this new bored version of Bruce Willis that we’re seeing. Why? Well, it’s like this.
How many interviews have you seen where actors are impossibly excited about how great their new movie is, about how it’s probably one of the best things they’ve done, how they really enjoyed working with their co-stars and the director?
So you go to the cinema, part with your cash, and… it hits you. The movie is shit. The actor lied! Usually, maybe a year down the line, the actor will then go, “Yeah, that movie. It was shit. Sorry guys! Ha-ha!”
Now, I’m not naive. I realise how PR works. It’s about making everything look good, even the bad stuff. But there’ll always be a little part of me that wants to believe the PR hype. Otherwise, why would I be interested in movies in the first place? I want to see good movies.
So I find it refreshing that Bruce Willis can’t even be bothered with the bullshit these days. It’s nice to see some genuine honesty in a press interview.
But in a way, I also hate this new bored version of Bruce Willis. Why? Well, it’s like this.
The guy has been known to get paid a whopping $20 million (£13 million) per movie. That’s a lot of cash. He’s financially secure. If he never worked again, it wouldn’t matter. He’d just go home, lay in his hot tub, and smoke cigars whilst an entourage of monkey butlers clean his house.
Meanwhile, the guy interviewing him better ask the questions on his cards, and be nice to this lazy, bored, super rich superstar, or his arse gets fired and he’s out of a job. No monkey butlers for this guy. Just cold, hard, unemployment.
Still, Bruce Willis’ near comatose responses at least give you a nice early warning sign that the movie will be about as great as a truck full of pig shit crashing through the front of your house, then exploding, killing your entire family. At least then, you know not to bother wasting your money.
Overall conclusion: Bruce is a bit of a cunt.
