Bruce Willis Melts Down During Red 2 Interview


Bruce Willis and Mary-Louise Parker, while appearing in London for a radio interview supporting RED 2, seemed to totally lose interest in the conversation. Mocking the interviewer and seeming disinterested in the film, Willis rolled his eyes and teased Edwards throughout. Parker, for her part, didn't join in on it but did seem pretty bored with the whole experience.

She also said she hadn't yet seen the film, which is consistent with her earlier claim that she wouldn't watch attend opening night screenings of either of the two movies that she starred in, which both opened on the same day last week (the other was R.I.P.D., another comic book adaptation from Dark Horse).

Neither of them seemed particularly excited by the prospect of another sequel, raised by Edwards in the final moments of the interview. "I wouldn't be a bit surprised," Willis said, his voice totally devoid of enthusiasm.

Here's the basic breakdown of what led to that:

When 105.4 Magic correspondent Jamie Edwards asked what his favorite European shooting location was while filming the sequel, Willis told him Istanbul, which Edwards pointed out was not an actual filming location. At first, Willis and Parker played it off, suggesting that Willis was talking historically, not about this film, but it wasn't long before any pretense that there was a misunderstanding faded away.

"Has any actor ever told you this, Jamie?" Willis asked rhetorically. "This part is not acting, what we're doing right now. You might be, but we're just selling the film now. Sales. The fun part was making the movie."

"So how would you sell me the film then?" Edwards asked.


"I wouldn't," Willis said. "I would slash my hooves."

When Edwards and Parker got off on a conversation about driving, he tried to engage Willis, who responded, "I'm thinking about driving right now," Willis said. "I can hardly keep my mind on this interview."
