"That was the beginning of the gradual dispelling of my stutter. I still stutter around people now", the 57-year-old actor also stated.

Willis also opened up to the magazine about his former drinking problem. Willis was a former spokesman for Seagram's Golden Wine Cooler products until he decided to become sober in 1988, according to

Willis is currently starred in the 5th installment of the Die Hard series entitled A Good Day to Die Hard. The movie will be released on Thursday February 14th just in time for Valentine's Day.
