Bruce Willis has apologised for a "boring" interview he gave to The One Show.
The star appeared on the BBC early evening show to promote his new Die Hard film last week, but his appearance prompted fans to question whether he didn't want to be there.
"I have to apologise," the Hollywood star told XFM about the stilted interview. "I didn't get very many compliments about it.
"They said 'he was a little stale'. But I was so jet-lagged. I'm very sorry, you kids on The One Show."
He added: "I'm sure it's not their problem. I was a little bit boring, I think. I had a little sinking spell, that's all."
Co-host Alex Jones tweeted after their interview: "Bruce Willis has tired me out... It was a bit of a challenge, to say the least."
The fifth Die Hard movie, titled A Good Day To Die Hard, opens in cinemas on February 14.
