Die Hard Donation

Bruce Willis gives John McClane's blood-smeared undershirt to the Smithsonian. Yippee-ki-yay...

No. I think there are a lot of people who are far better trained at that than I am. People who actually serve are the real heroes. I just act in films. But I don't think they can make enough films about soldiers and cops and doctors and nurses and emergency tech people. Those guys are doing a much harder job than I have to do, and they don't get enough thanks.

How do cops like the Die Hard movies?

They like them a lot. I was in New York, and New York cops—those guys really dig it.

What's the chance of a Die Hard 5?

A very good chance, I think. It always depends on how well this film does.

It seems like these movies are very much of their eras, whether it's the 1980s or the Internet age and post-9/11. What do you think a fifth movie would cover?

It's still about keeping America safe. I find, whenever the situation arises, that there's a lot of national pride in this country. I'm really proud to be an American. I love this country and the freedoms that we have here. I would certainly fight for them. I'd fight to keep my daughters and my family safe.

Can you say the line?

Oh sure, yippee-ki-yay—
