HOLLYWOOD action man Bruce Willis is the latest movie "tough guy" to cancel a trip to Europe - because he's too scared to fly. The star, who confounded evil terrorists in his Die Hard films, was due to jet to Britain for the premiere of his new movie at the London Film Festival later this month.

But after his children pleaded with him to stay in America, the star told festival organisers he wasn't going anywhere.

The 46-year-old actor hasn't officially explained why he won't travel to Britain. His Los Angeles agent Paul Bloch issued a terse statement saying: "Due to family commitments, Bruce Willis is no longer able to attend the 45th Regus London Film Festival."

Willis joins the ranks of film heroes including Terminator star Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sly "Rambo" Stallone who have refused to fly abroad after terrorist strikes.

As well as missing the first night of his movie Bandits, Willis has cancelled an appearance on the BBC's Michael Parkinson chat show.

conversely, this is why sean bean is awesome:

British actor SEAN BEAN was forced to clamber up mountains on the set of THE LORD OF THE RINGS - because he is petrified of flying. The 48-year-old, who played Boromir in the fantasy movie, refused to use helicopters with his co-stars on the New Zealand set of the hit movie franchise, choosing to walk everywhere instead.

Bruce wanted to be catapulted to Europe, to make a more badass entrance.

For real. He got stabbed while drinking at a bar. Did he go to the hospital? Fuck no. Hospitals are for pussies. He kept drinking.

Of course it is hard to argue with Kurt Russell as Jack Burton.

On the contrary, Herzog was the more badass and adventurous of the two; i'd admit that he can fool you as a badass in Aguirre, though.

Meh, valid excuse. Just because you're a bad ass doesn't mean you have to be inconsiderate.



Anyway, everyone on this thread is wrong.




Does your favorite bad ass actor do all of his own stunts? Even if that involves jumping off a flying helicopter? Did any of them break a leg on a stunt and went back to filming on the same day? I didn't think so.

I wholefully agree. Gotta give the man some respect, IIRC he even dislocated his cheekbone during one of his films.

Less of a joke compared to 90% of the actors mentioned so far. Chuck is a real life badass, not a movie made one (though many would argue hes a badass on screen as well).

That and "are they currently still badass" because there are a lot of dudes in this page that haven't been "badass" in the last couple decades, they've been soft and doughy. Physically and in their roles.

If we're talking purely physical then the only answer is Bruce Lee. There is no other.

Robert Mitchum, The Night of The Hunter


at age 12 his mom sent him to live with his grandparents, but he later went to stay with his older sister after being expelled from school for apparently "scuffling with a principal." later on he ran away from there as well, moving throughout the country on trains and taking up odd jobs such as digging ditches and professional boxing. He was arrested for vagrancy and put on a chain gang, which he escaped at the age of 14 (by his own telling) and returned to live with his grandparents. He almost lost a leg from injuries, met the woman he would one day get married to, and then went on the road again to travel west. After that he did some ghostwriting for an astrologer, worked as a machine operator for lockheed and then decided to try to get some extra work in movies. He got some roles in movies and after making a few, he then got drafted into the army and served for a while before going back into being in movies

He was also stoned all the time, apparently even on movie sets
