Is Bruce Willis a Trump supporter?
Before Donald Trump‘s election in 2016, several outlets created fake pro-Trump quotes attributed to the actor in an effort to promote Trump’s campaign..
According to fact-checker Snopes, the outlets used this made-up quote: “Before every election so far there were debates and fighting between candidates.
“But, once we had a winner everybody just stood behind the elected president. Now we see that the fighting and conflict continue long after the 2016 election. I don’t like that. It doesn’t look good. If you don’t like him go to Canada or something.”
Snopes has debunked the quote as entirely fake.

Is Bruce Willis a Republican?
The actor has not declared his political affiliations, but fans think he may be a Republican.
The only time Bruce has spoken publicly on his political beliefs was in a 2007 interview with Fox’s former contributor Bill O’Reilly.
“I know that I have just as many contrary opinions about everything,” he said of his political leanings.
“And I have just as many liberal ideas as I have conservative ideas. And I argue with myself.”
Reports alluded to Bruce voting for George Bush in an election years ago. When prompted in the O’Reilly interview, he outlined his beliefs in more detail, saying:
“I do have contrary opinions about it. You know, small government, yes. Less taxes, yes. Less government intrusion, yes.”

The maskless actor reportedly irritated shoppers when he refused to pull up his bandanna, which was tied around his neck, to cover his nose and mouth.
A fellow shopper told Page Six that Bruce stormed off in protest and left without his purchase.
How many children does Bruce Willis have?
Bruce shares his three oldest daughters with ex wife Demi Moore.
Bruce has two younger daughters – Mabel, 8, and Evelyn, 6, with his current wife Emma Hemming, 42.
The actor surprised fans when he revealed that he spent the first coronavirus lockdown with Demi and their children instead of his new wife.
Explaining how the odd situation came about, Scout told a podcast: “It’s been so funny because to me they’re just like my super f***ing weird parents but to everyone else, they’re at this different level.

“It’s actually been really cool. My stepmum was supposed to come up here with my little sisters but my younger sister, who is now about to be 6 years old, at a park, had never gotten the talk about not f***ing with hypodermic needles that she found, so she actually tried to poke her shoe with it and poked her foot.”
“So my stepmum had to be in LA waiting to get the results from taking her to the doctor so my dad came up here and then travel got crazy so my stepmum stayed in LA with my little sisters,” she said.
Bruce reunited with his young family a month later in May when they came up to the Idaho property Demi was living in – and the whole clan celebrated Evelyn’s sixth birthday together.
