Bruce Willis awarded prestigious French honour

(ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: He may be best known for his tough man roles, but a softly-spoken Bruce Willis seemed humbled as he received the prestigious Commander of Arts and Literature award in Paris on Monday (February 11). With his wife model and actress Emma Heming looking on, Willis expressed his fondness for the country celebrating his work. Previously an Officer of Arts and Literature in France, and Willis' new role as Commander puts him in the same league as David Bowie, Bob Dylan and Michael Caine. French Culture Minister Aurelie Filipetti praised Willis' diverse roles from Pulp Fiction to his iconic portrayal of John McClane in the Die Hard films, currently on their fifth installment. Asked why he thought his work resonated so much with French audiences, Willis said the feminine power behind his tough guy characters was key. Willis' latest outing as McClane, 'A Good Day to Die Hard', will hit cinemas worldwide on February 14.
