Tough guy Bruce Willis, who is father to three daughters – Rumer, 22, Scout, 19, and Tallulah, 16 – with ex-wife Demi Moore, says he taught his girls to stand up for themselves at a very young age so that they’d never fall prey to high school bullies.
“I taught them a little thing when they were young and they can actually protect themselves now,” explained the 55-year-old Die Hard star on Britain’s Daybreak TV show. “Walk up to any guy who is shoving (you) around in the playground and scream in their face, ‘It’s not ok to be mean’. It works too. It’s not ok to be mean.”
Try it… it works. What you have to do is get right up to their face and scream at the top of your lungs, ‘Hey! It’s not ok to be mean!’
Bruce, who is convinced his lessons helped his girls to enjoy their childhoods, is now married to model/actress Emma Herring. The couple tied the knot in March 2009.
