Bruce Willis is a tough guy

September 15th, 2009 // 56 Comments

Bruce Willis apparently got in the face of a fan who poked him in the shoulder to say “Hello” during a Fashion Week event in New York. Obviously, this person must’ve been some burly dude requiring Bruce to get tough, except no wait, it was a woman. RadarOnline reports:

Hanging out with sexy new wife Ema Heming, Bruce was headed to see the Erin Wasson show and passing time by having a few drinks in the lounge. He was in a corner by the bar when several women noticed him.
A few of the women snapped photos with their camera phones and Bruce was gracious, smiling for some of the shots.
Then one fan got too close and poked the action star in the shoulder, as a way of greeting him. Bruce was furious at the stranger.
He was visibly angry, leaned in very close to her and put his finger right in her face. He then said, “Don’t you EVER touch me, understand?”
The (former) fan appeared shocked and frightened. Bruce then told his posse and said, “I need to leave.” And with that, slipped into the backstage area of the show.

And this is exactly why Bruce Willis isn’t cast in romantic comedies anymore. Unless you count Live Free and Die Hard. Remember when he loved that helicopter so much he launched a police car into it? *sniff* Gets me every time.

    I don’t like people that I don’t know touching me. That being said, what is tough guy doing at FASHION week?

  2. naju

    clemens loves bruce:)

  3. Jstuddle

    I don’t get it. I’m not even famous and if some total stranger put their hands on me, I’d get pissed too. How many total strangers do you put your hands on every day?

    The guy apparently reads his own pubicity.

    He should hang out with Kanye West.

    Finally, a celebrity has been sighted and posted about on The FISH!

    Have we, your loyal readers and posters, seen a reverse in the reality TV plug advertisements of D-list actors once and for all?

    Kate Gosselin, VH1 Divas, Tila Tequila, Jon Gosselin. Need I go on?

    With garbage reporting, FISH, Randal has nothing to say.

    Black leather jacket, black tee and jeans. Fashion for men never changes. He must love this girl, or be getting an eyefull of models. Either way, he’s the man!

  8. missywissy

    jeez, I have to agree with Randal. Don’t forget Paris Hilton and Heidi Montag. Fish is giving these whack jobs too much credit.

    Does Bruce Willis and Billy Joel share the same stylist? I think they should go on Maury Povich and get a DNA test and find out if they’re long lost brothers.

  9. Poker in the rear

    Let’s get it straight, he took pictures with her then she “pokes” him to say hello? It sounds like she was looking for a lawsuit. Crazy cuntry.

    None of you like being touched. None of you make millions or are famous. How many famous people put their arms around someone for a picture? How many hands do presidents shake? I understand it would get annoying having people tap on your shoulder and bother you but that’s the price of being a millionaire. I’m sure the average citizen probably makes 25,000 a year. Bruce Willis makes 25 million in 2 years. Maybe even 25 million in 1 year. I don’t feel bad for him. I’ll let random girls touch me. I’d even be cool letting a dude tap me on the shoulder if he was starting anything. I’ve never heard of Hulk Hogan exploding like this and he is on steroids. Also way more famous than Geezer Mc Willis.

  11. Mac

    Seriously…. think about your salary and what you do to earn it. Would trade it for millions of dollars more every year and banging any woman/marrying brad pitt/justin timberlake etc. We’re talking about a few cameras in your face and one person tapping on your shoulders. I as a male wouldn’t even mind people starting crap with me everytime I went out in public if I made what Bruce Willis is making and married Demi/nailing the model he is married to now.

    @ 10. I was digging you until you said:

    Are you insane???

  13. greenman

    I’m sure there was more to it than her just poking him.

  14. Ryan the Canadian

    Poor Bruce. Fame is getting tedious. I know everyone feels for him.

  15. Mac

    When has Hulk Hogan exploded on a fan? I know he did on his wife. She also took more than half of what he made. A little 20 year old is driving around is living in his house, driving his cars, riding in his boats etc. I don’t blame Hulk for exploding on Linda. She is obviously messed up in the head. A 50 year old woman with a 20 year old ‘man’…. kid. That’s not normal. You can tell she caused Hulk Hogan to go crazy. It’s not like he had pieces of bone removed from his hip, knee’s etc. because of wear and tear on his body. Except he did while Linda never had a job. She married him and was the mother of his children. She took more than half his networth. She is useless. I’d freak out also if I were Terry.

  16. ROUGH daddy

    She must’ve been one of those loud mouth from Long Island. You cant poke people, just because you saw them on tv. You wouldn’t do that to Habib from you local gas station which you have more of a relationship with than Bruce Willis. (“oh i got a vag, so i have cart blanche to do anything”) Now he’s looking like the jerk now….

  17. Get back

    Actually people do invade my personal space and touch me all the time. It sucks. Back off touchy feelies!

  18. R.Gere

    hmmm She must of been really ugly to be dissed by bruce

  19. What a fucking schmuck.

  20. TrojanMustang

    Seriously, who pokes people? Ever? I can’t think of one situation where poking anyone with your finger is warranted, especially if they’re a stranger. I learned not to pull stuff like that when I was a toddler.
    He didn’t assault or insult her; he told her not to touch him. Considering how often annoying crap like this must happen to him, I say we cut him a break. The woman was shocked and frightened because she’s an idiot who apparently has never been taught about boundaries, and I don’t feel sorry for grown people who act like little kids.

  21. Harold^Sick

    1. You don’t just poke people.

    2. You definitely do not poke Bruce Willis.

    3. He didn’t really do anything except tell her not to do that, in a slightly less-than-polite way.

    If you were being harassed by people all day everyday, you’d be annoyed too. No point in making an elephant out of a moth.

    @10 & 11

    Are you kidding me?!? Just because of a person’s salary or being famous DOES NOT allow others to POKE you. Of course #10 would love to have the attention because they lacked that in their childhood. Your pathetic and don’t deserve to breath. Maybe YOUR personality fits for people touching you at some FUCKING STUPID ASS CLUB you go to or some other surrounding that fits your shallow life. I’ve interacted with wealthy people before and never have I felt let me touch them. Like their golden or some shit. They are people just working a job who have a higher bracket of income than others. Some of them put themselves on a pedestal thinking they would love to be touched like you fuck face (#10) if you WERE famous. Also for you two jackasses (#10 & #11) now-a-days these young dumbass celebrities arn’t in it for the ART OF ACTING, they are in it for the money & fame. Thats all you care about is wishing to obtain the money and having ladies/ men rubbing you. You are disgusting and I curse your mother & father for giving birth to such brainless fucks like you two!

    @ 22 and 23. Damn girl, rip that Hulk Hogan fan’s head off! Whew.

  25. U da dumb

    @ # 22 and 23

    I think it is going a little far to wish somebody dead because they like to touch celebrities. At least Mac didn’t double post ya geek.

  26. Fashion poobah's

    The idea in Hollyweird is to find the MOST expensive black garnment known to man so you can look like you shop at Banana Republic.

  27. havoc

    Tough Guy and Fashion Show just don’t go together….

    .

  28. Tazlina

    It doesn’t matter if he is famous or not. It is inappropriate to invade someone’s personal space like that and touch them, very rude and inappropriate. She deserved a good telling off whichis exactly what she got.

  29. Tanzarian

    Take your pictures if he’s playing along, but leave the man alone. Fame is not a free pass to touch celebrities. Sure he could have been a little more reserved, but nobody should blame the guy.

  30. Angel Eyes

    He’s so handsome, it must be true love. NOT!

  31. You know

    HA! How many times have you touched someone on the shoulder to get their attention? How about way more than y’all are acting. Bruce Willis took advantage of the probably open bar and then freaked out on some poor woman who probably thought it was fine to be a bit more personal after he was mugging for the cameras. I love how everyone is quick to judge female celebrities for showing cellulite in the comments on this website, but the minute a man overreacts, the comments defend him. You all annoy me way more than Bruce Willis does.

  32. Crabby Old Guy

    On a semi-related note: I’d like to “poke” his new wife.

    Just sayin’.

  33. shea

    My husband better not EVER cross his legs and fold his hands on his lap like that asshole….

  34. radio_babylon

    i heard bruce willis once shot a man, just for snorin’ too loud…

  35. rumer

    they look awkward? he even has to hold his own hand. it won’t last.

  36. KIKI

    @ 35, gave a little snort for that. Little snot bubbles.

  37. Meugh

    That’s funny how you losers are defending a celebrity asshole who wouldn’t piss on you if you were on fire.

  38. allison

    Is she wearing a leather skirt or is it pants? They look great.

  39. Martina

    Bruce’s income has nothing to do with her interest in (and subsequent marriage to) Bruce. People here are so cynical!

  40. What is it about Bruce “Fred Flinstone” look-alike Willis, that he can get great looking women? Okay, I know he has a lot of money, but hell, he must look some bad with his wrinly old white ass!

  41. solpwr

    Hopefully she will become a popular comedian like George Lopez and everytime she performes she will say ” Bruce Willis, you stinking Puto!”

  42. Dan Montana

    Is that why he’s crosses is leg like a queer.Mr tough guy? .biggest self conceited asshole ever!

  43. Darth

    Judging from his reaction,that must have been an helluva ugly fan.

  44. Nero

    Didn’t he recognize Rosie?!

  45. Gando

    #46
    Maybe he did.

  46. toadcheese

    Back in the day, Willis would have kicked her in the cootch until her uterus prolapsed. But no, you have to get on the side of dudes becoming prancing little exemplars of good manners. Someday, your Uncle Butch–the one who showed you his necklace of ears scavenged personally from Victor Charlie–will call you up and want to talk about his feelings, and you’ll have no one but yourself to blame.

  47. Frankie

    the person didn’t GROPE him…they tapped him on the shoulder!
    who the ef does HE think he is? what an ahole

  48. relax..it's just a POKE

    I’m totally lost here….20 and 21 asked “Who pokes people!?”

    Who pokes people? Maybe it’s a Notheast thing, but people poke people all of the time! You aren’t poking them on the ass, but I think I get poked/tapped on the shoulder daily…what it it with all of you ‘personal space’ people?
    You wouldn’t last in Europe for 5 minutes….they are all over eachother there. Get over it.
