Bruce Willis - Rumer Willis: 'Don't Be Too Tough On Dad, He Can't Hear'

Bruce Willis' actress daughter Rumer has defended her dad from critics who have blasted him for appearing awkward in interviews, revealing he probably can't hear the questions properly.

She insists the Die Hard star doesn't go out of his way to be less than talkative when promoting movies, but a hearing loss issue means he is always struggling to make out what is being said by interviewers.

Rumer, who is Willis' eldest daughter with ex-wife Demi Moore, explains, "I think part of the problem is sometimes he can't hear... because he shot a gun off next to his ear when he was doing Die Hard a long time ago, so he has partial hearing loss in his ears.

"If me and my sisters get together and he's at a dinner table and we start talking about fashion and things, the poor guy..."

Willis' daughter also feels her dad has a reputation as an edgy, cool guy to keep up: "I think he just has this vibe where he feels like he's gotta kinda do a cool man (thing)."
