Bruce Willis found wife on casting couch

Bruce Willis and Emma WaringWhen a celebrity wants to find a date, how do they go about it? Lavalife? eHarmony? Nope. Bruce Willis, 54, met his new wife, British model Emma Heming, 30, through a casting call that he set up, according to gossip site Page Six. A source says: “During the casting of Perfect Stranger, Bruce was very involved with the casting. In fact, you could say he was extremely involved no matter how minor the role.” Rather than cast extras through agencies that specialize in providing background performers, Willis insisted on calling modeling agencies. The casting source says, “He personally went through head shots.” After taking a look at the models, some of them were asked back to read for bit parts in front of Willis.  “When the girls were called in to ‘read,’ he was there in the meeting. It was odd for the star of a movie to do so, but at the time he was single and I guess he needed a date. He started dating Tamara Feldman, with whom he coincidentally enough had a sex scene,” the insider said. He then began dating Heming as well, who was selected for a small speaking part. “Emma eventually won out,” the source said.

    Marriages based on looks and sexual attractions don’t last and Bruce should prepare himself for a messy divorce.

    Seems like he was out shopping for a honey, almost like he’d go out to pick out a new car.

    1-800-dial-Willis for your own personal appraisal…
    (and maybe, if you’re real lucky, he’ll throw in a diamond ring with the warranty)

    Can anyone spell D-E-S-P-E-R-A-T-E?
    couldn’t agree more, T.g.

    There is a certain entitlement when you’re someone like Bruce Willis.
