Willis reveals role regrets

Willis reveals role regrets

Bruce Willis wishes he'd never made "about a dozen" of his films.

The 'RED' actor - who has starred in over 50 Hollywood movies - admits he has a few regrets about his career, and would rather not have taken on some of the roles which have made him famous.

When asked if he regretted any of his films, he replied: "About a dozen. I'd love to strike them off the list."

Despite having a few reservations about some of his movies, the 55-year-old action hero - who is about to start filming a fifth 'Die Hard' film - isn't thinking about retirement, and thinks he has a few more moments of glory left before he plans to let another A-list hardman take his place.

He added to the Daily Record newspaper: "I think I could save the world five or six more times. Then I'm going to hand it over to Jason Statham, but right now I'm having a ball."

Aside from Jason - who stars alongside him in 'The Expendables' and has taken on similar roles to Bruce in 'The Transporter' and 'Crank' - the actor is also a huge fan of new James Bond Daniel Craig.

He said: "I really like Daniel and I like his work. He got me away from all the old Bonds - apart from Sean Connery.

"So it's not as if they aren't looking for new young action stars and tough guys - but it's a tough process."
