Demi Moore made a surprise appearance towards the end of the Comedy Central Roast of Bruce Willis, which was taped on Saturday at The Hollywood Palladium.
The 55-year-old actress, who was married to Willis for 12 years from 1987 to 2000, made jokes about their marriage, his Die Hard films and his parenting skills.
“For those of you that don’t know me, I am Demi Moore,” she said. “I was married to Bruce for the first three Die Hard movies, which makes sense, because the last two sucked.”
She went on to joke about his parenting style with their now 29-year-old daughter Rumer Willis. “Bruce is super generous. When our daughter Rumer was a baby and it was his turn to change the diaper in the middle of the night, he would lean over and whisper to me, ‘I’ll give you a thousand dollars right now if you change that diaper.’”
The pair share three daughters together, Rumer, 29; Scout, 26; and Tallulah Belle, 24. All three were in attendance to watch their father’s Comedy Central Roast.
“Scout asked me not to say anything, but just last week he offered her a thousand dollars to change his diaper,” Moore said. “Some things never change.”
Moore also made a joke comparing their bald looks from when she shaved her head for her role in G.I. Jane in 1997.
“People wonder why our marriage came to an end, and in all honesty I think it was because some jealousy started to creep in. I think Bruce never really got over the fact that I rocked the bald look better than he did,” the Empire actress said.
“I look at our marriage like The Sixth Sense,” she said, adding, “You were dead the whole time.”
Moore went on to say that her marriage to Willis was “some of the best times of my life,” adding that the Die Hard actor was “easily one of my top three husbands.”
At the end of the roast, Willis declared, “Die Hard is not a Christmas movie!”
The event was hosted by 10 Things I Hate About You actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and featured jokes from some of Willis’ former costars and friends including Edward Norton, Martha Stewart, Jeff Ross, Dennis Rodman, Nikki Glaser, Lil Rel Howery, Dom Irrera, Kevin Pollak and Cybill Shepherd.
The Comedy Central Roast of Bruce Willis airs July 29 at 10 p.m. on Comedy Central.
