Actor Bruce Willis reminisced over his days as a teen, when he treated 300 old school chums to a lavish 30th reunion party.

The Die Hard hero, 48, met up with PENNS GROVE HIGH SCHOOL's class of '73 at the fancy TRUMP PLAZA in Atlantic City, New Jersey, on Friday (15AUG03) - and he picked up the tab.

An old pal says, "It must've cost him $30,000 (GBP18,750). He took care of food, drinks and entertainment. He rented out the hotel's theatre. He was accessible too. He took time to say hi to everyone and took pictures with anyone who asked."

Willis served as a DJ at the cocktail party and the following night the graduates of the Carneys Point, New Jersey, school watched the actor and his band the ACCELERATORS perform, alongside former GRAND FUNK RAILROAD frontman MARK FARNER.

The friend adds, "It was like we were in school again. And it was classy of Bruce to pick up the tab."
