The movie star was talking ahead of the release of his latest film Red 2 and touched on topics including fatherhood and his 15-month-old daughter. Willis appeared to be fully dressed but opted to wear a dressing down over the top for the interview.

In recent years, the actor has gained a reputation for being one of the hardest people in Hollywood to interview.

Earlier this month, a video of a painful interview between Willis and a Magic FM reporter went viral. Willis made it obvious he didn't want to be there, telling the reporter: "I can barely keep my mind on this interview."

Yippie ki-yay: Die Hard's 25th anniversary celebrated

A giant mural of Bruce Willis's Die Hard character John McClane has been unveiled to celebrate 25 years since the first film was released.

A black sheet with the words "A Good Day to Die Hard" hung over the mural before fireworks lit the night's sky and the painting was unveiled, but Willis admitted he was taken aback by the image.

He said: "It makes me shy, well its big isn't it? It's a lot of everything. There's a little tiny air conditioning duct, but I think we shot it right over here just around the stages, but yeah it's just nice. It's nice that Fox would do this."

Willis, 57, stars in the fifth Die Hard film, which is set to be released on February 14,

Community service for Willis's daughter

Demi Moore and Bruce Willis's daughter Scout can do community service to resolve her public drinking and fake ID case, a US judge has said.

Willis, who is now 21, was excused from court as a Manhattan judge agreed to dismiss her misdemeanour case if she does two days of service.

She did not have to enter a plea in the case.

Her lawyer, Stacey Richman, said prosecutors "took a logical approach to assessing the situation".

The arrangement in Willis's case, known as an adjournment in contemplation of dismissal, is often offered to defendants in first-time misdemeanour cases.

She was arrested on June 4. A court complaint said she was sipping beer in public in violation of an open-container law.

Willis, who was 20 at the time, gave police an ID card with a false name before showing her real ID, according to a complaint. This led to a misdemeanour impersonation charge.
