Bruce Willis might have been too shocked at being introduced as “Ashton Kutcher’s dad” by Ricky Gervais at Sunday night’s Golden Globes to respond with a quip on stage, but he knew it was a headline making moment.
“Funny guy,” Bruce told reporters backstage at the ceremony, when asked for his reaction to Ricky’s words. “It will be in the papers tomorrow.”
But Bruce — who was on hand Sunday night as a presenter at the awards show — isn’t letting anything bother him. In fact, he told reporters he’s indulging in one of the best times of his life.
“Never happier than you see me at this point in my life,” Bruce said.
The actor also had an update on “Expendables 2,” the sequel to the 2010 action-hero film starring Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li and Dolph Lundgren.
“Apparently it’s going to happen this year,” he said.
When asked if he will be in it — as has been rumored — Bruce confirmed the news.
“As far as I know, barring any unforeseen circumstances, but yeah, I would love to be a part of it,” he said.
