Bruce Willis felt 'handicapped' with stammer

Feb 12 2013, 9:27am CST | by

Bruce Willis used to think he was "handicapped" because of a speech impediment.

The 57-year-old actor lacked confidence when growing up due to his stammer and relied on visual acts to get himself noticed when he was a boy in the Club Scouts.

However, Bruce soon realised acting helped him speak fluently and describes the change in himself as "miraculous" - though the impediment hasn't gone completely.

Speaking in an interview with GQ magazine, Bruce explained: "[I use to do] little skits you would probably find in the Cub Scout handbook. Little tricks. It got a big laugh, and I thought, 'This is it.'

"The Cub Scout years, I had a terrible stutter. But then I did some theater somewhere, probably in high school. And when I memorized words, I didn't stutter, which was just miraculous.

"That was the beginning of the gradual dispelling of my stutter. I thought I was handicapped. I couldn't talk at all. I still stutter around some people now."

Bruce - who has nine-month-old daughter Mabel with his wife Emma Heming Willis, and grown-up kids, Rumer, 24, Scout, 21, and Tallulah, 19, with ex-wife Demi Moore - is best known for his roles in action films such as 'Looper' and 'The Expendables', but he still struggles to find the right "metaphor" to sum up his job.

He continued: "I can't even figure my job out. I can't figure out the proper metaphor to try to explain what it is I do, even to my kids.

"I can't get it into a nice, cozy box - 'This is what I do, and this is why.' I still like it - you can't beat the dough. But I'm sure there will be some kind of penance."

Maleficent becomes the highest grossing film sold on one star's name

Jul 20 2014 12:06pm CDT | Source: Oh No They Didn't!

It was only a few months ago that analysts had, foolishly it would seem, branded Disney's live-action adventure 'Maleficent' as a flop, and that was even before it had been released in cinemas. However, after a strong opening and consistent debut week and beyond, the stattos were left scratching their heads at the impressive $697 million it has made to date, from a $180 million budget. But what's more i ...

SyFy releases trailer for 12 Monkeys, says it will be very different from the movie + more press

Jul 19 2014 1:56pm CDT | Source: Oh No They Didn't!

The creators of Syfy's upcoming "12 Monkeys" series say it will not follow the path of the award-winning 1995 movie version."It wouldn't make sense just to tell the same story again," co-writer Travis Fickett told TV critics in a panel on the Syfy show, which is scheduled to start airing in January."I think it's a complete sort of reimagining," said Fickett's writing partn ...

Drake And Macklemore Shot Into Space And Shit Around The Web

Jul 17 2014 2:30pm CDT | Source: WWTDD.com

The inexplicably popular Drake used his forum as host of the ESPYs to throw shade at Macklemore. He’s still jealous that the talentless shitburger beat him at the Grammys to which he wore his very neatest suit. I wish Easy-E hadn’t died of The AIDS so he could set these kids straight, with a gun. Read what the handicapped kid from Degrassi had to say about Macklemore.

Scout Willis Blasts Media For Focusing On Her Bare Breasts In A Statement Focusing On, Well, Her Bare Breasts

Jun 2 2014 2:09pm CDT | Source: Perez Hilton

When Scout Willis took out her tittays for Twitter last week, she never expected her uncovered sweater puppies would get so much, well, coverage. Then again, as far as celebrity progeny goes, she is amongst the most popular. Plus, she flaunted her fun-bags in the streets of New York. Hmm, perhaps she should've seen this coming! At any rate, Bruce Willis & Demi Moore's daughter is steaming-mad about both the quantity and quality of media attention her rib ...
