Bruce Willis is a bad interviewee because he can't hear, says daughter Rumer Willis
During an interview in July that was labeled "rude," "awkward" and "painful" by critics, Bruce Willis seemed unwilling to answer questions as they were asked, eventually admitting that he wasn't really interested in talking about his new film, "Red 2," because promoting a movie isn't fun. But his daughter, Rumer, recently defended her dad, saying his behavior with interviewers is often misunderstood.
"I think part of the problem is sometimes he can't hear … because he shot a gun off next to his ear when he was doing 'Die Hard' a long time ago, so he has partial hearing loss in his ears," she explained. "If me and my sisters get together and he's at a dinner table, and we start talking about fashion and things, the poor guy … I think he just has this vibe where he feels like he's gotta kinda do a cool man [thing]."
