New York (ANI): Hollywood star Bruce Willis barely escaped injury
when the escalator he was riding on suddenly sped out of control.
Willis and his publicist Paul Bloch were at MoMA for Sunday
night''s Cinema Society screening of 'Red when, according to a
source, the escalator sped and a scared woman happened to jump on
"The escalator taking guests down to the theater accelerated to
near-carnival-ride speed. Women started screaming and one did a
high-flying jump off, nearly landing on Bruce," the New York Post
quoted the source as saying. The 'Sixth Sense" star immediately
checked that the woman was OK and appeared puzzled when the
escalator then abruptly stopped. "We had to jump, it was going so
fast," said Bloch.
Willis was joined at the screening and the OC Concept-sponsored
after-party at The Lambs Club by co-stars Helen Mirren, Morgan
Freeman, John Malkovich, Mary-Louise Parker and Ernest Borgnine,
93, who said Hollywood shouldn't be so obsessed with youth. "You
don't need a young cast to make a great movie," said Borgnine.
