Bruce Willis's Quotes

  • I'm much more proud of being a father than being an actor.
  • You can't undo the past . . . but you can certainly not repeat it.
  • I'm staggered by the question of what it's like to be a multimillionaire. I always have to remind myself that I am.
  • [3/10/05 interview in "People" magazine, on how he stays in shape] Mostly weight resistance training, almost an hour of cardio at least three times a week. I have a gym in my house in Los Angeles and a gym trailer that I can take on the road with me when I'm on location. At my house there's a very long steep driveway. I do wind sprints that kick my 50-year-old ass. It's part of my job. I have come to associate working out as work. Whenever I don't have to do it for films, I kind of slack off.
  • I am a sensitive guy. People think they know the real me, but they don't. And then they write things that make me sound like such a jerk.
