Bruce Willis has thanked Will Smith for talking him out of confronting
The 'Die Hard 4.0' action star confessed he flew into a jealous rage when he
first discovered his ex-wife Demi Moore was dating toyboy Ashton.
Luckily, his actor friend Will urged him to see sense for the sake of the
couple's three daughters, Rumer, Scout and Tallulah.
The 52-year-old actor told Playboy magazine: "During some very dark hours he
talked to me about it. He said, 'Dude, you've got to do whatever it takes to
get the kids and all the spouses or the girlfriend together. You've got to
show your kids it's OK.'
"It was like a light went on. Ding. So Will, thanks. And thanks for all
those good movies you're making."
Demi - whose marriage to Bruce ended in 2000 after almost 13 years - first
started dating 'Punk'd' star Ashton, 29, in 2003.
Despite Bruce's initial reservations, he now has a close relationship with
his ex-wife's new love.
'The Sixth Sense' star even gave Ashton his full blessing when he wed Demi,
44, in September 2005, and also attended the ceremony.
I guess that explains all those "intimate" vacations.
