Bruce Willis speaks against gun control, panned for awkward U.K. interview

‘No one commits a crime because they saw a film’

by Emily Senger

Action-film hero Bruce Willis is coming out against the tougher gun-control measures proposed by President Barack Obama in the wake of the shooting in Newtown, Conn.

In an interview with The Associated Press to promote his fifth Die Hard film, A Good Day To Die Hard, Willis strayed into political territory and warned against infringing on Second Amendment rights. “I think that you can’t start to pick apart anything out of the Bill of Rights without thinking that it’s all going to become undone,” Willis told The Associated Press. “If you take one out or change one law, then why wouldn’t they take all your rights away from you?”

In the interview, he also rejected claims that there was a link between Hollywood violence and real-life violence saying: “No one commits a crime because they saw a film. There’s nothing to support that.”

Willis’ anti-gun control comments aren’t the only thing he did to make headlines during his promotional tour for the upcoming film. He’s also being panned for a particularly awkward interview where he gives short answers and begins questioning the hosts on BBC’s The One Show, an evening interview program.

During the interview, Willis discusses the name of his latest film in the Die Hard franchise, saying that it doesn’t really make sense. The audience cringes before the hosts move to a clip from the film.
