Esquire magazine sat down with Bruce Willis and instead of getting a taste of his witty one liners, or friendly banter that he’s sometimes known for, they got a candid and riled up Willis, who’s patience seemed to wear thin on everything from Hollywood, to politics, to the interview itself.
Complete with intimidated stares and lengthy pauses, Esquire got on the subject of the running mates for the 2012 election. The outspoken Republican surprisingly spoke out against Mitt Romney.
Yeah, Romney. He’s just such a disappointment, an embarrassment. Chin up, hair up. He’s just one of those guys, one of those guys who says he’s going to change everything. And he’ll get in there, and they’ll smile at him and introduce themselves: ‘We’re Congress, we make sure nothing changes.’ He won’t do it. He can’t. Everybody wants to be Barack Obama. And what did he change?
When Esquire prodded his thoughts further about the upcoming election he admitted he “doesn’t care” about who wins, but doubts that Romney will turn out to be a victor against Barack Obama. Willis, who was famous for backing Bush in both elections isn’t supporting the party this election, saying of Romney, “He’s just the Dash Riprock of the Republican party.”
Bruce Willis also suggested that he might not be the best at thinking before he speaks, telling the magazine that, “Sometimes I have to resist the urge to speak. I learned it from dealing with my kids. That’s my number-one rule.”
Do you agree with Bruce Willis’ thoughts on this year’s race?
