Bruce Willis refuses to be drawn into the competitive side of Hollywood, and has never campaigned to win an OSCAR.

The actor - famous for roles in fast-paced action movies like Die Hard and his latest offering HOSTAGE - hates the promotional work that studios undertake in a bid to get their movies nominated.

And rather than dreaming of ACADEMY AWARD glory, Willis merely focuses his skills on making the film popular with cinema audiences around the globe.

He tells Britain's EMPIRE magazine, "I don't really think about it. The Oscars have become so much about marketing. I watch the Oscars and I think, for the most part, that the people who win deserve the Oscar.

"But I don't spend my time worrying, 'Oh man, I should have been nominated for this and that.'"
