Bruce Willis' passionate affair with 25-year-old actress Brooke Burns has been confirmed, after the pair were spotted frolicking in the waves off Costa Rica.

The DIE HARD star, 48, has copied ex-wife Demi Moore's by hooking up with a much younger lover. Demi, 40, is dating ASHTON KUTCHER - who's the same age as former Baywatch babe Brooke.

Willis joined the blonde beauty in the tropical Central American country to keep her company as she was filming, and the pair weren't shy about their budding romance - they were snapped playing in the sea together and canoodling openly on the beach.

An onlooker says, "They were kissing and cuddling and Bruce looked like the cat who got the cream."

Texan Brooke has romanced Elizabeth Hurley's ex-boyfriend Steve Bing, and has a three-year-old daughter by actor Julian McMahon, the ex-husband of singer Dannii Minogue. Since his split from Demi in 1998, Bruce has been linked with a series of beauties including actress Estella Warren, 23, and porn star Alisha Klass.
