"willis" Discussed on Dave Berry's Dadpod
"Don't tell me this now safest side just for the pulse right yeah I'll introduce hello and thank you for downloading this episode of might've pulled brought to you by Royal London my name is Dave Barry and I recently became the father for the first time to a wonderful human being called evangeline and that's why I wanted to create a place for people to come and celebrate the wonderful exciting sometimes scary but absolute joy fatherhood each episode I will be joined by special guest and friend to talk all things that and today I'm joined by a borderline national treasure strike by on the day I wrote it with eight five straight pain but now you in front of me chewed on chicken nuggets unprofessional on National Treasures Ping of ever seen in free broadcaster who rose to prominence on MTV her cv now reads like a collection of the favourite prime time television shows from big brother to the voice and most recently announced a new host of the circle she also happens to be one of the first people I messaged when I found out that we were pregnant Willis is true Emma how are you I'm good so I wanNA make your baby my baby it's your full for moving out to the country we just moving into the area house prices plummet is brexit very slowly seeing you thank you sorry now go well that's why I wanted to do the podcast like serious that mode it's so sales orders instead of just messing around with people bands it's great Oh thank you man in it feels that way and I need help Anita Advice on eight guidance and I'm interested in other people's journeys I wanted to do this podcast you three the day you're a mom to two daughters Isabella who's ten actually grace who's three and you have a son named ice who seven let me ask you this as a parent how do you see the role of dad in their lives oh he's like the fourth child hey permissions nobody is perfect because I think he has such a fantastic bond and relationship with them because he can get down on their level to mean when they want fun they go to him makes me feel sensationally boring because I'm like oh I'm not what am I that tells them often make sure the washing the quintessential mum and I think security that's what I've always had for my dad and that's like my just always always fun and I'm quite jealous of that the question is Matt Willis best known for being in the band busted and I'll know Matt and he's always been such a fun guy but I haven't seen him really in the all of dad because we haven't had those family moments you and I together so it's quite nice to hear that his personality is as right to fatherhood and he's stayed the same person that he was yeah totally without yeah it's such a fantastic thing to do because it's very easy to become apparent and go into parent mode and be serious and and I kind of you know I I watch him sometimes when I'm in that kind of mode of of good they said don't go get that led to Washington got make sure the bed's dominique just lie on the floor rolling around on my account each beat out a little bit more it's great swells yeah he is because he does all my other stuff as well to know to me if I brought list for him he does it and he's great with list which we know our places but I wish I had all the kind of I think I've forgotten how to be a kid but hey still remembers it whilst being grown up and that is a brilliant thing to marry together I think we the DADS are completely understand what you mean did you know what you mean and he's really well put and it's it's an interesting look into to how you would fade as a mom will not even a member asfaw partnership because I suppose whoever that person is conflict between the role in whichever parent they are did you navigate your way through this did you find these were the rosie slipped into by accident the Wanda you just woke up and Isabelle was too and you suddenly realize that this is now you are as a couple these ill define rose I realized that I had become my mom my mom woman Chinese And I am very much my mum when she was my age I say things now I've done the absolute thing where I go on my mom I remember I'm saying these things to me but now my mom is obviously a grandmother and she has almost become who she wasn't her twenties like the Mumbai has gone and she super amazingly fun again so I think I'm in that role of being that mom where I have to be like you know mum and in about ten years yes I can start going out again and I've been really good fun I'll be there you have to wait a little bit so I'm quite happy with that role I hero and my idol so I'm more than happy to kind of be her because I think she really great job with us so what was it like growing up in Birmingham in the griffis household I am Magin our household was very similar to your growing up household because I feel like you are super close with your family and your mom and dad's and your sister your world and you're the best of mates and you do everything together and you're one the time that's the impression I got from you years ago the is very much I'm glad that that's the impression that you go from that so that's nice to hit it right yes absolutely mine is exactly the same and we still do like go on holiday together every year that the people I talk to every day my family but my best friend so I had very normal working fast balanced upbringing with you being the middle of three daughters how did it work out calling for Your Dad Steve's attention was always a winner Oh no because my dad's you know that is why he the very placid man isn't he gonNa WanNa find out for for his attention yeah I think he was quite happy I didn't we weren't doing that Lamey a learning that up he's a funny one my dad because he's he's very placid and he's very laid back and he is consistently kind of strong support if like perfect dad really so we didn't really have to ever fight he's attention we weren't those kind of kids just kind of all go on and Mosey on through but what was funny was when me and my sisters and my mom would be upstairs I'm Gossett when we were teenage boys or whatever it just hit these footsteps coming then and he just want to be involved in my dawn you're not intimate doc talking about boys and stuff like that you don't normally want in on those conversations but he hates missing out that's what's the guy now I base car company grandsons now so you can you see any similarities between the way in which stave your dad you see matt with with your kids yeah I mean very tactile loads of love and patience I think my dad has got so much patient it's Anna somebody who gets very stressed and wound up very quickly by homework my dad would sit with ours when I was going to get it get it you could see him take a deep breath and just sit with you again for hours and hours because that mass equation was just not registering because you're not academic Emma just get it in your hands this. Is Math solvency became a passion so patient and I see that in Matt as well he's very patient and because around my parents a lot I think my I see him learning from my dad he's letting how to put pictures up my dad's very good at day Oh very good habits he taught me about plugs and light bulbs and everything and now he's teaching mattison that bad things like that but it's just really nice thing anyone would feel fortunate to be part of the family unit yes the one like the one you're painting right here which is lovely you're saying that your daddy's passing on these tidbits and he'd sit into your homework with you thanks did you ever go to work with that what did what did he do what does he do why he doesn't work now he's retired but he used to be a driver for British gaseous go I never really went to what within driving a big lorry but did you never get to see in the Laurey sure that's exciting is it for a kit now no Christmas party at the gas club every year so we'd all kind of go to things like that a my mom worked in a hospital and they had the kind of social club there so yeah those they say it's kind of like the roles have reversed like I said with my mom she's kind of almost reliving her youth again because her responsibilities are grown they have their own responsibilities now inform us in arcades my dad is the same so he was always the responsible one looked after us and we would town up drunk and be Kim bed need clean us up and look after us now my dad comes to wrap party and we'll go home in a cab and he's sticking in the back of the call so he's become tena that happens three months ago which was it it wasn't fresh show it was basic why keep proper and just say my mom looking at him going stay he's only I had to launch for for next take the mind and in one party bags heat under your in what I didn't even the only so he did it I am before he yes he rolls reverse how would you have fun when you're younger Dave parent it stops but then when you become a grandparent you can again evangeline is six months old a timer let's keep it on that show I'm interested to know because the call a beginning for you to really was your model yeah you with an agency you'll tell by the agency that you're probably GonNa get the most work by moving to New York and living there for a period of time and that time you harold making you I was twenty twenty so how did your parents feel about you twenty flying found miles away in new home they're they want did you even tell the by I think they would have been absolutely trrt had I have left at the family home to do that but I lived in London for three years before that so I left time at seventeen and just went and lived on my own a multi flat in London and when I think now that in seven years as my eldest my asked me to do the same and I'm not no it can be looked in your bedroom tweet twenty-five I don't know how I don't know how they let me do it because at the time I'm not well I'm begging on right I'm seventeen and I'm fine.

You just had a fantastic weekend in the sunshine in on the beach drinking, whatever it is on his supposed to shine. So I hope that's great. He hoped that sun keeps their commitment. Yeah. Okay. Friend. I am gonna cut you off there. Let's talk about our crazy experience. Thursday afternoon. Yeah. So sitting at our desks, just like every day, and then what do we want for lunch? Let's get whole foods we get up immediately. We'll yet was perfect timing on our part. Sometimes I say, what are we gonna get for lunch? We sit there for a little bit. We got up immediately, we start walking, and all of a sudden, a man, walks in front of our tracks and says, hey, what are you guys up to? Yeah. He keeps walking. And, you know, when somebody says something to on the street you obviously look up to see who who it was, whether it's just a random person on the street whatnot. We look back Fran does a double, take route the crosswalk. She goes, what, what the is that burst Willis. I think that's Bruce Willis, and I was like, oh, my I turn around. I'm like, oh my God. It's Bruce Willis and totally totally Willis other people in the crosswalk, turn around. And we're like Bruce, Willis, what's the what's the name of that hat, the kind of he was wearing? I just call like an Irish. I know. But scale. Yes, that's what it is. Yeah. Scott like, oh, shuts me. Good job. Thank you. So yes, and he was just minding his own business. I think it was alone was alone. He seemed like maybe was had himself a nice day. Maybe drinking a little bit. I'm not really sure what Bruce was up do not seem like BRUCE'S just trying to chat with people on the street. So I will get Fran. I'm like, are we on hidden camera show right now? But this is when famous people talked to people on the street, and then the other people don't notice them. It's like all they didn't know that was Bruce, Willis. Yeah, it would have been a great shot of France face, if it was a hidden camera show, when Franco's that Willis, I mean, the acting or whatever it whatnot acting. But the reaction reaction was so good from you. That if that was on TV for a hidden camera show, be great, but I've been great. I don't think it was hidden camera show because we turn around we go to Bruce Francis Bruce, we had a picture with you. Yeah. I've, I can't believe that call him by his first. That use knows. I don't know what emotion took over me. But I was like, we gotta get a picture with him. We got ask, and you Bruce. Yeah because because you know what? I'm glad I did because he did ask us. How old we were. Yes, you did. Which I feel like valid question. Two young girls walked wanted to make sure you don't wanna get any granted. He said, hey, what are you guys up to and to clarify, it wasn't you knew who we were. Right. Right. Peop-. I tweeted that this like Bruce new guys. No, no. I just stated exactly what happened. Bruce said, what are you guys up to? And then we turn around realized Bruce Willis happened. Can you confirm friend confirm if he was like, hey oh, my God. Chicks in the office out, how that would have been our sure. But that's absolutely not. What happened zero idea, your idea Ziaur idea where he was what he was doing? I don't think Bruce had any idea who he was. So it was like it was so hilarious. And so maybe it was just me just trying to like be assertive. And like, hey, Bruce. The. Bruce. So, you know our age past our age, so Franco's. See this, this tricky, because I blurted out twenty five neither of us are twenty five by disfigure. Nice round number. Twenty five which. Wow. I don't even like you told me that. And I don't even think blurted out five I was because I was just like I was like, Bruce, Willis isn't about to age, the check our age say. I like. Up so no,.

But also time we would talk one hundred years now or people to be talking about a die hard movie knows they're going to be listening to it's only get detail. Oh, that's actually a great point. The whole diehard is is that a Christmas movie debates like a classic pop culture debate as well. Yeah. Well, what do you say to the fact that because we're talking international fame. Your worldly fame that czar was always disgusted that we even debated. This is I was like, it's obviously, Bruce Willis careful what you say, not even close. Oh, I fuck. You rakes second of all like, Donny. Berlin, Bruce, Springsteen as amount of credit to him for ending the Cold War as rocky bell. Boeing Ronald Reagan. A million people played watched him in Berlin in nineteen eighty five. Like me is huge overseas in Europe. You can't get a ticket to see him in Australia or career. He's big in Australia and Korea to he's big worldwide. You can't get a ticket anywhere. I'll be honest. But then again, Bruce Willis like he goes, he does Japanese commercials. He's worldwide payments. Do he does? But I I would guaranteed issue preschool. Jeff factors throw. You know? Tommy, can you dismiss that point? No. I liked up. Does Dave commercial? If he does Japanese commercials. That's huge. I just don't know that serious. There's a lot of people. There would be big Japanese the Brad Pitts dropping Jappie Google. The Brad Pitt Bruce Willis Japanese commercial results. Popped up November fourteenth two thousand six April twenty second twenty thirteen. So he's got some stuff out. There will not Springsteen Willis, Bruce, Willis. Okay. Okay. I think he's not a sell out if you've never done that. Might be hurting his fame levels. Even amidst that that helps strong talking fame keeping that point too. When you when it comes to intangibles insane town or an honor and integrity for Springsteen winds up battle. I'll I guess I'll give them those ones. But again, the snot really brought us to the table here today. No. But I think I think argument is a lot closer than than I think he would get me credit for I think we're swell. Rby answers were Springsteen me. Springsteen right away. We've been one over. I think he won yourself over. I think. Absolute throughout the year, thirty six cents. Di horns big movies look to look to woman to. I mean that guy like I struck the round I mean Springsteen. You're you're gonna you're gonna get the argument of who is more conic one of the greatest one of the top one hundred one of the top than rock and roll. And I'll take rock and roll. It's also just one genre. You dismissed. Like, he's bring top action movie. At rock and roll. Right. But then you could say for Bruce Willis, he's top ten action movie guy of all time. True. If you're going to specify genre. Yeah. But I think rock and roll override.

"He just spit a fact that he does carry a lot of weight with that. I agree with Tom where he is the perfect case study where it's like if we're talking about international he was like an unbiased like he came here. Like, I don't know. There was no laughing outta. There was no smiling. He just he just spit a fact at me and walked out of the room. So I guess that's that carries a tunnel. Waiter say if there was a class thing about this. There was like a class overseas on American pop culture. I think Bruce Willis would be mentioned before Bruce Springsteen. I don't know Bruce Springsteen is fucking conic represents a generation Bruce Willis is iconic. I don't know that he's iconic and this I wouldn't have I'd say was like Connick. Roasted on comedy central in things that are I- conic Brazil's himself as I con maybe Bruce Willis had to go get roasted on comedy central to try to stay relevant. Whereas Bruce Springsteen still out there fucking selling out stadiums you ever see you ever disagree. Yeah. Yeah. No. No. That's That's a good. a good point. Thank you you ever see the documentary district. I'm refuting it dismissed. Not a. Just a radio show just talking about. I'm dismissing the point I've read I'm readmitted. I'm rediscovering it. Fuck. You can't come back from. I got this tough to come back from you to say, no. It's just look. No, you're on. We got Kevin cons on the line to weigh in on the Bruce talk He said you said need. he needs to get in. Here is cons on me. Captain qatar. It's up. It's all right here. There's nothing that you guys are ignoring your house. Listen it on my way home. You guys are ignoring the fact that you're Springsteen Bruce Springsteen has been relevant for two more decades an entire twenty years plus more than Bruce Willis. But the height of Bruce Willis is higher than Springsteen. Jonathan even remotely true. Look at the numbers of how many concerts and records Bruce Springsteen is sold compared to how many movies of Bruce Willis that have actually gone all over the world. Maybe two three two or three low over. I don't have the facts overseas way. More people have seen die hard. Also to Bruce, Willis careful. Kathy cons, be careful because Tommy could just dismiss anything. Okay. If I don't find it a strong enough point. I will dismiss. So you gotta be really gotta kind of walk that line a little bit feels like a little cons. I also I would like to state for the record. What what state are you from New Jersey? Okay. Stone pony area. No actress dismissed all points. I just thought that that would be important to state for the record. What? What? Look how big Bruce Springsteen. I I get the point about Dodd knowing about Willis and being from Africa. But what about the entire legion of fans in Europe that follow Bruce Springsteen? Religiously still there's dead. I didn't know they existed. Learn facts Bruce, Springsteen as a huge European Falk. I didn't know that. And I'm on British Twitter too. I normally European following. Maybe I'll give you die hard. I'll give you six cents beyond those two movies. Name me, a Bruce Willis movie that has transcended the world the way the albums Bruce Springsteen has I mean, the fifth element. He kind of saves the world. So I mean, unbreakable is a pretty huge one being married to Demi Moore is pretty huge. We dropped the Demi man he was in friends friends this huge. Yeah. He was a big. I I dunno cons. I don't know. What what if I hit you a little movie called arm again? I was just gonna say what what about that? He saves old. How many? Fictions a little flick that people better the six cents to. I don't think we hit that home and said that but we'll review we'll just dismiss your. What about what about an album called born to run? What what about you know, the rising? What what about born in USA? I mean, you you got things that are going up against Bruce Willis movies that I think we also live in the bubble of America movies that are huge in America, don't necessarily always translate worldwide where I think it's even more true for Album, them. I'm going through BRUCE'S versus catalogue here. Let me tell you what I'm thinking with my God, we got some bangers sin city, the siege. Lucky number sloven, a colossus whole ten yards, sixteen blocks. Awesome film expendable 's blind date haven't heard of that one moon kingdom.

"Bruce Springsteen or Bruce Willis that was the question that Frankie. What to us radio crew right before the break, and we just kind of ignored it the last segment. Zeile came in here saying Bruce Willis, and it's not even close. See? I disagree. I agree with. No, really. Yeah. I hear I think is is the perfect case study, he's not someone that was born in America. And like he was born in America, you know, who's more famous. Yes. Well here, but it's. Like, you learned American culture when he came to America. And he learned more about Bruce Willis than Bruce Springsteen. I think Bruce Willis is more recognizable. I think Bruce Springsteen is more known. I think I was I think that that's correct because Bruce Willis, obviously has the facial recognition from being in movies. And just all that bald head is very like you see about Bruce Willis, I still you say the name, Bruce, Willis more people will know who that is Bruce Springsteen. I mean, basically ninety like ninety nine percent I ninety eight percent. But I still think Bruce Willis he's been so many things then so many things he's married to Demi Moore the me more fucking shitty way to say that. But I think I again, I guess my. Ecuadoran the northeast like Bruce Springsteen anything specifically big in the northeast. That's a fair point. And also again, the echo chamber is like Bruce will Bruce Springsteen is the guy for sports writers. And that's all fucking journalists all the sports, whereas they're always fucking raving about brusett Gillette or Bruce MetLife. Or everyone's always talking about when bruises in town. So I guess maybe I'm I'm living in my own echo chamber right now a little bit. And and saying Bruce Springsteen, no problem. But I I guess I guess you're you win me over with the with the northeast. I can see also younger people too. I feel like are less likely to know Bruce, more like Bruce Williston Bruce Springsteen making a lot of good points. Timing think you're making a lot of good points. I I don't know how much either of them really resonate with the younger crowd. But I guess it was Bruce Willis, I mean, die hard is probably one of the most famous movies ever ever. So that's that's pretty in a bunch of other. I don't know Bruce Willis like should the roast of him on comedy. Central not too long ago. He was the most recent Roosevelt. Yeah. I don't remember. If I watched it, actually, I think because I can't do second hand embarrassment fifth element love that movie. Just was classic six cents whole nine yards. Yeah. I mean, he had some the it's a monster films. There's no I think he's the expendable is now these sounds Iraq and crew. Yeah. Yeah. I don't get into it, which is probably surprises people's as fast and furious guy. But yeah, the expendable is really puts us. Just a huge facet here in the world. I'll tell you what there's something coming down the pipeline in a couple of years. That's my blows a minds. One thing. Teaser. John talk to me twenty twenty. Nobody knows anything about their life for any shoe years. It's not my life. It's not I can assure you it's not me in a movie anyone knows anything about like two years out. I off air. It's it's pretty interesting one. We'll see if it's in a work still, but it's piqued my interest. I remember learning when I lived in Boston that people from Long Island love facet furious. I did everyone in the world has faster. They're like the highest grossing movie every year, they come out. They're great. Don't get me wrong before whatever reason it was just more popular among the Long Island crew. I'm from Long Island. I'm not a huge fast and furious guy. So it's rare Bill that room. I was there. Bar together. But we were talking with Jason Maine's Susan Casey radio, and he loves fasten furious movies. And he was like I just loved that. They started off as legitimate street. Racers stealing TV combos. And now, they are basically the vendors like. Like in the last movie, the rock literally picks up a torpedo throws..
