Actor Bruce Willis has been awarded with the medal of the Commander of the Order of Arts and Letters in France for his contribution to cinema.
The 57-year-old, whose latest film "A Good Day to Die Hard" opens in U.S. theaters Valentine's Day, told those in attendance at the Paris ceremony Monday night that he feels honored that his work has been recognized. Willis came to the event with his wife, 34-year-old Emma Heming.
Willis was born in Europe at a military base in West Germany and says he feels at home in France. But the star said he opposes President Francois Hollande's plan to tax the richest citizens at 75 percent and hopes he would be able to complain about it if he lived in France.
Willis also said in an interview that he thinks there will be more "Die Hard" movies to come. "A Good Day to Die Hard" is the fifth installment in the blockbuster franchise.
