It’s pretty well known that Bruce Willis is a tough guy not to be messed with in our favorite action-filled films. However, he’s also a pretty moody guy behind the scenes as well. One of the biggest feuds that has been brought to light was Bruce Willis and director Kevin Smith. Kevin Smith went on the record countless times about how working with Bruce Willis was soul crushing and impossible to get along with during the film production of Cop Out. From reports made by Kevin Smith, Bruce wanted to play director rather than actor, making the film tough to shoot and even worse to watch through.
