As soon as Bruce Willis was announced as the next "honoree" for Comedy Central's Roasts, most fans had a good idea of where most of the comedic barbs and jabs would be directed. From the highs of The Sixth Sense to the lows of Bruno and his latest glut of action flicks, Willis has a career ripe for brutal nitpicking. Still, almost everyone at the July 14 filming for the Comedy Central special was surprised when the actor's ex-wife Demi Moore took the stage to deliver some hilarious potshots about their marriage. I need this roast in my life!
Comedy Central's latest celeb-blasting special has Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Bruce Willis' roast master, with the two having co-starred in both Looper and Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. It appears Gordon-Levitt was one of the few attendees who was in on the surprise guest appearance, as he came out in the second half of the show and introduced Demi Moore to the shock and non-chagrin of Willis and the entire crowd. She took zero time before thickly laying it on, according to People.
Yippee-ki-hey-now! Current Empire star Demi Moore was married to Bruce Willis from 1987 to 2000, which can generally be considered the actor's heyday. Beyond the first three Die Hard flicks, it also included half of Moonlighting, Pulp Fiction, 12 Monkeys, The Sixth Sense, Unbreakable and Look Who's Talking. (I stand by his vocal performance in that 100%.) But just because he had a string of solid movies -- that were spaced around lots of crap, to be sure -- that doesn't mean Moore was all about backhanded compliments.
Well, she did imply a Harvey Weinstein hotel room visit was implicit with Bruce Willis getting his Pulp Fiction role, and she also said that she looks back at their marriage like The Sixth Sense, in that he was dead the whole time. So those jokes were definitely there. But she also targeted his parenting skills while on the mic.
It's worth noting that daughters Rumer, Tallulah and Scout were all in attendance for the taping, and all were seen laughing at the jokes. The same goes for Bruce Willis' current wife, Emma Heming.
And how did Demi Moore explain why their marriage fell apart? She believes it was an issue of jealousy. Not over another man or woman, but because Bruce Willis was jealous that Moore looked better with the bald look than he ever did. G.I. Jane in ya face!

Nick is a Cajun Country native, and is often asked why he doesn't sound like that's the case. His love for his wife and daughters is almost equaled by his love of gasp-for-breath laughter and gasp-for-breath horror. A lifetime spent in the vicinity of a television screen led to his current dream job, as well as his knowledge of too many TV themes and ad jingles.
