Bruce Willis was blasted by viewers of a BBC show after he seemed to blow off questions from the hosts during an awkward interview that was meant to promote his new movie, “A Good Day To Die Hard.”
The actor gave short answers and repeatedly shrugged his shoulders in the appearance that viewers described as 'torture.'
In fact, the only time Bruce opened up during the live interview was to criticize the name of the film, which he claims didn't make any sense.
While the host was in the middle of praising the film, Bruce only seemed interested in criticizing it.

The 12-year-old boy who swatted Ashton Kutcher has been charged with several crimes....
The boy is accused of reporting a fake gun battle inside the actor's L.A. home in October.
He told police that there were people with guns and explosives there, and that several people had been shot.
When police arrived, they realized the whole thing was a prank and that there was never any real danger.
Officials also believe that the boy also pulled a similar "swatting" prank on an L.A. bank, and he’s been charged with two felony counts of making false bomb threats and two felony counts of computer intrusion.
Actor James Cromwell (best known for the movies "Babe" and "The Artist") was arrested in Wisconsin after interrupting a university board meeting to demand an end to cruel and deadly brain experiments on cats.
Campus police led the Oscar nominee away from the University of Wisconsin in Madison during a protest staged by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) activists on Thursday morning.
Cromwell held up large poster of a cat, which appeared to have a metal clamp implanted in its head, and he started shouting... "Shame on UW for mutilating and killing cats!"
Prior to his arrest, the actor said, "The University of Wisconsin may think that grant money matters more than animals' suffering, but the public who unwittingly funds this cruelty demands an end to these hideous experiments.
"My friends at PETA and I will continue to call on UW-Madison to stop cutting into and killing cats in this useless experiment."
Hours later, the director of the UW–Madison Research Animal Resources Center, released the following statement:
"Today's events are just another attempt by outside activists to draw attention to a cause. They have attacked and distorted this research -- which has very real benefits for people who are deaf -- from every angle imaginable."
He added that "exhaustive independent investigation by the USDA, which regulates the use of animals in research, concluded that PETA's allegations are baseless."

On top of it do you have a big personality, are totally strange, a classy snob, and just not normal?

In an interview for "CBS Sunday Morning," John Mayer said he isn't the same guy who once called Jessica Simpson "sexual napalm."
He admitted: "I was just a jerk. It's very liberating when you finally realize it's impossible to make everyone like you. I wanted everybody to like me. I thought I was one shuck and jive away in every direction."
The full interview airs Sunday at 9 AM on CBS.
Justin Bieber’s mom, Pattie Mallette, described what it’s like watching her 18-year-old son make tough teenage decisions under the world’s spotlight.
She said: “It’s tough letting go and letting our kids make the mistakes that they need to make. I just have to trust that he’s made good decisions in the past and hopefully he’s learned from some of my mistakes.”
In the past month, Justin has been dealing with rumors that he has been drinking “sizzurp,” smoking weed, and that he cheated on Selena Gomez.
Speaking of Selena, Justin's mom would be happy if her son and his ex-girlfriend worked things out.
She said: “I just try and support whatever he’s wanting. I think she is a sweetheart and whatever they decide is great.”

The partnership debuts during Sunday's Grammy Awards, when Justin will star in a new 60-second Bud Light Platinum ad. The spot will feature Timberlake's new single "Suit & Tie".
On Monday morning, Buzzfeed released some unflattering Super-Bowl halftime photos of Beyonce cringing, jiggling, and crotch-thrusting.

Now, the unflattering photos have become a meme.
Selena Gomez helped kick off New York Fashion Week but got a negative surprise when she became the target of a sweatshop protest.
While she was sitting in the front row of the fashion show featuring her Adidas’ NEO line, she got approached by a woman who handed her a flyer pleading with her to “be an ambassador for children, not sweatshops.”
The protester then walked along the front row and handed out copies to as many other people as she could. She made it almost all around the runway before getting caught. When she was escorted out by security, another protester popped out of the audience with more flyers. That person got grabbed by security, too.
The group is called United Students Against Sweatshops and they claim that Adidas has refused to pay $1.8 million in severance to thousands of workers in Indonesia.
No comment from Selena or her people.
Whitney Houston's "I Will Always Love You" has been voted the most popular love song in a poll by Harris Interactive.

The Righteous Brothers' "Unchained Melody," Percy Sledge's "When a Man Loves a Woman," Joe Cocker's "You Are So Beautiful," and the Bees Gees' "How Deep is Your Love" rounded out the top five songs.
More than 2,000 adults voted in the online poll and were asked to pick their favorite love songs from a list of more than 40 songs spanning several decades.
Aerosmith's "I Don't Want to Miss a Thing" came in sixth, followed by Patsy Cline's "Crazy", Foreigner's "I Want to Know What Love Is," Bryan Adams' "(Everything I Do) I Do It for You" and "Let's Get It On" by Marvin Gaye.
Paul McCartney entertained public transport passengers in New Orleans by singing Beatles songs.
Paul and his wife, Nancy Shevell, were in the city for the Super Bowl and McCartney hopped on a streetcar during his trip. He then started singing Beatles songs but it took a while for passengers to realize who was performing.
A source told the UK's Daily Mirror: "This guy got on the street car and started singing Beatles songs. Everyone was just ignoring him because there's a lot of buskers in this town. He started to sing directly to my friend Evelyn. We realized it was Paul McCartney and were in shock. He started singing with the whole carriage and taking pictures. It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience."
