Don’t invade Bruce Willis‘ personal space because if you do he WILL go John McClane on you.
It looked like a scene out of Die Hard when Bruce Willis exploded at a fan this weekend, turning into his tough-guy movie character and getting in the face of a too-close admirer.
We know because we saw it all unfold in backstage lounge for VIPs during New York Fashion Week. And the truth is Willis’ rage was provoked – actually and literally poked!
Hanging out with sexy new wife Ema Heming, Bruce was headed to see the Erin Wasson show and passing time by having a few drinks in the lounge. He was in a corner by the bar when several women noticed him.
A few of the women snapped photos with their camera phones and Bruce was gracious, smiling for some of the shots.
Then one fan got too close and poked the action star in the shoulder, as a way of greeting him. Bruce was furious at the stranger.
He was visibly angry, leaned in very close to her and put his finger right in her face. He then said, “Don’t you EVER touch me, understand?”
The (former) fan appeared shocked and frightened. Bruce then told his posse and said, “I need to leave.” And with that, slipped into the backstage area of the show.
He brought his drink with him, but was met with a herd of paparazzi when he turned the corner, and turned around quick to try to hide it. He even tried to stuff the half-full glass up his shirt, but it looked too obvious.
(Yes, we followed him.)
Finally a friend grabbed the drink from him. The rest of his time there went smoothly because no strangers tried to poke him!
