Comedy Central roasts can get rough and it's not for the sensitive soul. For the Roast of Bruce Willis, Demi Moore kicked it up a couple of notches – leaving some serious burn marks. We kinda feel sorry for Willis because Moore was actually a surprise appearance, her name didn't even appear on the program to give him time to prepare some ice for the burns or prepare any comebacks to at least stand a fighting chance!
Her opening line was probably the mildest of all: “I look at our marriage like The Sixth Sense,” Moore said at the podium, per Deadline. “You were dead the whole time.”... ouch. To be fair though, we are pretty sure that most girls would jump at the opportunity to roast their ex on live tv! Moore was married to Willis from 1987 to 2000 and joked, “I was married to Bruce for the first three Die Hard movies, which makes sense because the last two sucked.”
She didn't hold back any punches and even went in for the kill with some of his failed business decisions: “Bruce considered the end of our marriage his biggest failure. Bruce, don’t be so hard on yourself, you had much bigger failures. Planet Hollywood, Hudson Hawk… campaigning for Michael Dukakis, turning down Clooney’s role in Ocean’s Eleven to focus on playing the harmonica.”
Moore even dared to utter Harvey Weinstein's name in the world of Hollywood, a name that people only dare whisper after he was accused of preying on dozens of women and having to fight against sexual assault charges. Moore went with a bit of risqué burn: “Bruce got his career-breaking moment in Pulp Fiction, and it seemed really odd at the time, this big action star in a little indie film,” she said, “but Bruce went over to Harvey Weinstein’s hotel, and I don’t know, but he came back and said, ‘I got the part!’”
But don't worry, Willis came back with a few crackers to wrap up the Comedy Central roast: “Joseph [Gordon-Levitt] played a younger me in Looper. He couldn’t pull it off,” Willis joked about the younger actor. “There is one actor who successfully played me. It was Demi Moore.”
