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."

By now we’ve learned a few things about Ashton Kutcher, like how he’s the cutest father in Hollywood.

While this is the couple’s first child, it isn’t the first time Ashton has been a “father” of sorts. The former That ‘70s Show star was previously married to Demi Moore, who had three children of her own with ex-husband Bruce Willi ...

The worst yet most successful daughter of Bruce Willis and Demi Not Lovato was seen leaving the Chateau Marmont with the worst yet most successful member of the Shameless cast.

Keanu Reeves: ‘I haven’t been getting many offers from the studios… it sucks’

Oct 23 2014 8:40am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

Here are some photos of Keanu Reeves at last night’s Hollywood screening of his new film, John Wick. I have to say… I think the photographers on the red carpet were in love with him. There are about a million close-up shots of just Keanu’s 50-year-old vampire face. Enjoy! Keanu is looking particularly great these days, so much so that any “would you hit it?” type of question is answered with a resounding “YES!” from every corner of the globe. But for ...
