The actor made the remark during a Comedy Central roast 5 years ago where other celebrities such as Martha Stewart and his ex-wife Demi Moore scorned him. However, the Die Hard star, made a comeback during his speech by stating that he has been through hell in his career and nothing scares him. “Nothing can keep me down. I’ve been attacked by terrorists, asteroids, film critics, music critics, divorce lawyers, male pattern baldness, and none of it stopped me because I’m still Bruce f**king Willis!”
