Hollywood star Bruce Willis enraged a young woman at a swanky New York party last week (22JUL05) when he jokingly propositioned her in a less than gentlemanly way.

The ageing SIN CITY star, 50, was discussing favourite chat-up lines with pals at the Roosevelt Hotel, and the actor playfully tried one on a fellow guest without success.

Willis asked the shocked woman, "What are your plans for sex tonight?", and she duly stormed out in a fury.

But the cheeky star insists she simply took him too seriously.

Willis' lawyer, MARTY SINGER, says, "Bruce was joking around with some friends and talking about pick-up lines. One remembered an old pick-up line (Willis) used to use.

"The friend said the line and Bruce may have repeated it, but he was not trying to pick up the woman."
