Die Hard actor Bruce Willis has revealed how he had a stutter while he was growing up. Bruce says that learning his lines for acting helped him to eventually overcome his stutter.
During an interview with GQ Magazine, Willis 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.”
He added, “But then I did some theatre somewhere, probably in high school. And when I memorised 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 Willis will next appear on the big screen in the movie A Good Day to Die Hard, which will see him starring alongside Jai Courtney, Sebastian Koch and Yuliya Snigir. A Good Day to Die Hard is directed by John Moore, based on the script by Skip Woods and is set to be released on February 14 in both the US and the UK.
