Kevin Smith - Kevin Smith's Bruce Willis Problem

Subscribe to Kevin Smith alerts

Kevin Smith found Bruce Willis to be challenging as they didn't "get along".

The 'Jay And Silent Bob Strike Back' director was disappointed the pair "didn't get along" when the actor starred in his police-themed comedy movie 'Cop Out' last year as he had always dreamed of working with the Golden Globe winner.

He said: "We didn't get along. He didn't like me at all. I thought that working with Bruce Willis was something that I wanted to do, until I did it."

One of Kevin's anecdotes of the 56-year-old star culminates in Bruce shouting at him: "I'm Bruce Willis! I've been Bruce Willis successfully for 25 years! How long have you been Silent Bob, motherf***er?"

But working with 'Expendables' actor has not been the worst moment of Kevin's life, as he explains that came early last year when he was ejected from an internal American Southwest Airlines flight for being "too fat to fly".

He explained: "It was the worst thing that ever happened to me. Having the whole world call you fat. Having the world call you out on your biggest insecurity. That will mess with your head.

"I was humiliated, I was sick and depressed, and I could've just slunk away. But I thought, 'No, I'm not going to go out like this. The story will continue because it's my story!'
