However, their marriage went through a rough patch, and they announced their separation almost after 11 years of marriage.

They finalized their divorce in 2000 and continued to stay close as they decided to co-parent their children. While they supported each other and maintained a healthy relationship even after their divorce, a statement made by the Assassin actor led many to believe that things might not have been as they appear among the couple.

Bruce Willis’ Controversial Comment Concerned Fans

Bruce Willis and Demi Moore released a statement in 1998 announcing their separation after 11 years of marriage. Reports claimed that the couple’s busy schedule caused their split. However, they also shared that they will continue to stay close and will focus on their kids away from the spotlight.

But fans were concerned that the reason for the separation could be something else, based on the Glass actor’s statement. During a 1996 interview, Willis made some controversial comments while talking about “a man’s impulse.” During an interview with Playboy in 1996, he said, “No woman is going to satisfy a man’s natural impulse to procreate, procreate, procreate.” He added,

“The impulse doesn’t go away because you have three or 10 or a hundred kids … We try hard, but we’re animals. We’re just donkeys walking up to the trough for food and wanting to f*ck everything we see because of this unconscious agenda.”

The comment raised eyebrows and people were concerned when the star couple announced their separation two years after Willis made the comment. The Flawless actress later explained his comment as her ex-husband’s “excitement and novelty” as he wanted to do whatever he wishes for.
