Bruce Willis is newly a father of four, and happens to look amazing on the cover of Esquire magazine’s June-July issue. Inside the pages, the A-list actor, 57, talks about fatherhood, his family life, and the upcoming presidential election!
When talking about fatherhood, Bruce opens up about the one lesson he has learned over the years:
“Sometimes I have to resist the urge to speak. I learned it from dealing with my kids. That’s my number-one rule. It applies in life. But it’s more about being a father. I’d rather hear what they have to say. You learn more by listening. And this stuff is just a matter of not equating drama with actions that will help them. Teach them to shun drama.”
As Willis has gotten older, he sees the real value in life, and that’s family! He says:
“Now I’m fun, just with fewer people. I’m in love with my wife and my kids. I require very little. Friends come over, the kids come over when they can. We eat dinner. And I’m happy to play along with their momentum. I save it for them. This is it.”
As far as the presidential election is concerned, Bruce has a very strong opinion. He said:
“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?”
