Bruce Willis on His School Days: "I Was Kind of a Troublemaker"

Aired on 06/20/1988 | CC
In 1988, Oprah interviewed Bruce Willis. At the time, the up-and-coming actor was best known for the hit television series Moonlighting, but he was just about to become an international action star thanks to a little movie called Die Hard.

During Bruce's appearance, Oprah took questions from the audience, and one fourth-grade teacher wondered what Bruce was like when he was the same age as her students.

"In this 33-year-old body lives the heart of a 9-year-old," Bruce said.

Here, Bruce regales the audience with one of his fourth-grade exploits, highlighting how he was "kind of a troublemaker."
