Acting helped Bruce Willis overcome stuttering

Los Angeles, Feb 13 (IANS) Actor Bruce Willis gives credit to acting for helping him overcome severe speech impediment he struggled with during his childhood.

The 57-year-old says he had serious trouble getting his words out during his youth.

"The Cub Scout years, I had a terrible stutter. I thought I was handicapped. I couldn't talk at all. I still stutter around some people now," contactmusic.com quoted Willis as saying.

"But then I did some theatre somewhere, probably in high school. And when I memorised words, I didn't stutter, which was just miraculous," he added.
