Bruce Willis was bullied as a child because he stuttered.
The 'Die Hard 4.0' actor developed a stutter at the age of eight and was teased as a result.
Bruce said: "I could barely talk sometimes. I still had friends but I was bullied a lot. The bullying meant I also learned how to fight. Everyone knew not to f**k with me because they knew they'd get their ass kicked."
Bruce discovered joining a drama club allowed him to express himself and by the time he turned 16, his stutter had disappeared when he performed.
He said: "I was in a play and when I got onstage I stopped stuttering - I couldn't believe it. I realised that the reason the stutter stopped was because I was acting."
His speech impediment continued throughout high school.
Bruce eventually enrolled in a New Jersey drama college, and his professors helped to cure his stutter completely.
