Bruce Willis will put himself in front of a car for his daughters

74868241_cbbLive Free or Die Hard finds Bruce Willis‘ John McClane trying to rescue his daughter from Internet terrorists and the actor says he will go to great lengths to protect his own daughters, Rumer, 18, Scout, 15, and Tallulah, 13, in real life too.
That father-figure element is part of what a good friend of mine calls ‘The Mythology of ‘Die Hard’ – it’s one of the components of John McClane’s character. And it’s one that, before I had kids, I wouldn’t have said is a major part of the films. But now, having three daughters it is a major component – that idea that McClane has zero tolerance for injustice and will not allow any bad guy to try and cause harm to an innocent person. I feel that within every fiber of my body with my kids; I would put myself in front of a car or anything to protect my daughters. And by extension, I thought, yeah, that’s kind of what John McClane does, isn’t it?

Mom Said It

"We weren't trying to have kids. We left it up to fate. I knew there was a possibility, but I was really excited. Even if you are trying, just to see a positive result is shocking!"
