"I look at our marriage like The Sixth Sense".

Indeed, Willis felt the heat on topics ranging from his one-note acting range, lack of hair, love life and music career.

One of the most beloved action movies of all time, 1988's Die Hard nevertheless has always been the subject of fierce debate: Is the Bruce Willis classic a Christmas film?

When it was Willis' turn, he didn't hold back, telling Norton, "You've rubbed more people the wrong way than Harvey Weinstein".

Bruce Willis' ex-wife Demi Moore made a surprise appearance during the Comedy Central Roast of Bruce Willis taping on Saturday night, and the G.I.

She told the crowd "I was married to Bruce for the first three Die Hard movies, which makes sense because the last two sucked", Entertainment Weekly reported.


Now I put it to you, the people: is Die Hard a Christmas movie? "You wouldn't know the difference, and that's the reason I love you". His backhanded career analysis wondered how he, a highly respected master of the craft, could be more like Willis, who makes millions cocking an eyebrow and saying "some cryptic shit that literally not one person in the room understands and have everyone laugh their asses off".

ET's Lauren Zima spoke with Willis on the carpet before the roast, where the star confidently said he wasn't "nervous".

And then: "Our daughters are incredibly well-adjusted, considering two of them are half Bruce Willis". I think it's because some jealousy started to creep in. "I think Bruce never really got over the fact that I rocked the bald look better than he did", Moore joked.

The Comedy Central Roast of Bruce Willis, which airs July 29, was hosted by Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Willis' co-star in the films Looper and Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, and featured roasters Nikki Glaser, Jeff Ross, Lil Rel Howery, Edward Norton, and Dennis Rodman - but not Kevin Smith.

The Hollywood Reporter claims that's what Willis ended his closing speech with.
