Bruce Willis has a new outlook on love and life now that he is married to actress Emma Heming.
“I went from ‘F—- love’ to ‘Love is truly the answer. I spent the last 10 years single and, for the most part, unhappy. In a dark place. I never thought that being with someone else was the answer. I would say, ‘I’m alone, but I’m not lonely.’ But I was just kidding myself. Then I started hanging around Emma, and on a day-to-day basis my life became much happier.”
The actor and his wife, 32, pose in a new provocative, avant-garde spread in the July issue of W magazine, on newsstands June 23.
“Oh, it was awkward,” Willis said of posing. “We did stuff that I know a lot of other actors would not have done. Had I done it with another model I don’t know that I would have been as into it.”
“We’ve become like a tribe. It’s generated a lot of interest because everyone can understand resentment and envy in the breakup of a marriage, but they don’t understand how I can get along with my ex like that. Demi and I made a choice to put the kids first, and we’re really lucky that it turns out we all have fun together. I still love her, and I have a lot of respect for how she lives her life.”
