Bruce Willis - Bruce Willis honoured in France

Bruce Willis became a Commander of the Order of Arts and Letters in Paris on Monday (11.02.13).

The 'A Good Day To Die Hard' star was presented with the prestigious accolade - the highest cultural award France has to offer - for his contribution to cinema at a ceremony at the Ministry of Culture.

Receiving the award, he said: ''Whenever I am in Paris, I feel at home. I love my job and it still makes me laugh.''

Minister of Culture Aurelie Filippetti - who made the presentation - called his famous 'Die Hard' hero John McClane a ''reluctant hero'' and praised Bruce's diverse movie choices.

She said: ''John McClane is an ordinary man faced with extraordinary.

''[Bruce] chooses to rely on the most amazing filmmakers, such as Wes Anderson for 'Moonrise Kingdom', Quentin Tarantino for 'Pulp Fiction', [and my] humble preference 'Unbreakable' by M. Night Shyamalan.

Bruce's wife Emma Heming also joked she plans to call her husband ''Commander'' from now on.

She tweeted: ''If I have to call him Commander so do you! #CommanderBruce (sic).''
