What makes Bruce Willis cry? Seeing his daughter, Rumer Willis, thrive on Dancing With The Stars!
According to Mail Online, the Die Hard actor admitted that he gets really emotional while watching Rumer dance each week. There is something so moving about Rumer’s journey on the show, and it is special for both of her parents (mom is actress Demi Moore), and they are so proud of her. They have been so supportive through the process, and have spent tons of time in the ballroom watching Rumer advance week after week.
“I’m very proud of her. The most exciting thing for me was how she looked when she got done dancing and stepped off stage. I love seeing her happy like that. She makes me cry,” Bruce said during his DWTS interview that aired in Rumer’s pre-dance package on Monday night. He dropped in at rehearsals since Rumer and Val were in New York, and he spent some time chatting with his daughter and her dance pro partner, Val Chmerkovskiy.
“Val and I were in New York this week and I don’t get to see my dad that much so while I was there he decided to come into our rehearsal,” explained Rumer.
Bruce Willis probably doesn’t cry too often, but his tough exterior is clearly softened by the love that he has for his children.
According to She Knows, Bruce is totally cool with being known as Rumer Willis’ dad nowadays. To have the spotlight off of him for a while isn’t something he’s too worried about.
“Keep doing what you’re doing. You’re doing great. You guys are doing great,” he said, encouraging Val and Rumer. And Bruce is right. Rumer has been a frontrunner from week one, and many believe that she will make it to the Season 20 finals.
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Rumer loves having her dad around, and she is really happy that he’s getting to experience this with her.
“It was really fun, honestly! He’s such a silly guy and to be able to have him come in when I don’t get to see him that often, come in and see what we do and see the whole process of how it all comes together and see how hard I work and what we do every week is very cool. Most people, you know, only get to see a minute and thirty seconds of an entire week of five or six hour-a-day of rehearsal and we work really hard. To have him look at me and say, ‘Wow, I am so impressed by the amount of work that you are putting in,’ is very validating.”
