What 'Choo Dancing At Willis?


According to FlyonTheWall, Bruce Willis, perennial Hollywood bad boy, was out partying at a gay bar in Germany (and, a propos of nothing, the German press have Britney strolling out of a German "loo" barefoot," a la trailer trash -- link via stereogum). And while we know that dancing at a gay German disco is not quite "dancing at lughnasa," if you know what I mean, it is interesting, as The Willismeister has been know to, erm, engage in butt banditry with porn star Alicia Klass (2nd to last story, as she claimed on Howard Stern). FlyontheWall writes:

"A reader in Germany emailed this picture of Bruce Willis allegedly dancing shirtless in a German gay disco.

"When I asked our German correspondent why Bruce was there, he did not know, as he had been emailed the snap by someone else.

"I don't think this is a fake. It doesn't look like one of those images where a famous head is Photoshopped onto someone else's body.

"And I don't think this means Bruce is secretly a friend of Dorothy. I've heard a variety of gossip over the years involving Bruce and women. Nothing about Bruce and men.

"Maybe Bruce was just having a good time."

Probably. But -- who knows? -- maybe partying at gay bars is the new Hollywood leading man thing, the new black, as, of course, you will remember our favorite "heartbreaking drunk," Keifer Sutherland, drinking at a Hollywood gay bar at 9AM, broken down, tripping over himself, according to that significant cultural artifact the National Enquirer, which wrote at the time:

""A staffer at the Spot Light who was on duty that morning told The ENQUIRER: 'Kiefer started drinking at 9 o'clock in the morning with some buddies and didn't stop till after 1:30 p.m.

"'At one point, he was so hammered that he fell off his barstool and landed on the floor. But he just laughed it off.

"'He was drinking Scotch and his associates actually had to prop him up!

"'Some girl pulled down her pants and showed her butt to him and he said in slurring speech, I'll show you something.

"'Then he pulled down his pants and exposed his butt to her and everyone else in the bar!'

"The eyewitness added: 'When Kiefer stumbled out of the bar, there were a bunch of cops hanging around the film shoot across the street. He laughed and said, Don't mind me, officers -- and just staggered away.

"'It was funny and heartbreaking at the same time.'"

And it hasn't gotten any better for the man, let me tell you; being the guy known as the one who let Julia roberts slip through the fingers for a Canadian stripper named Raven has got to hurt existentially.
