TG chats to Bruce Willis*

He looks in great shape today, and smiles energetically as if to prove his athleticism. "I was in the hospital for a month, and then had to go back several times for several more surgeries over the next year and a half. I got all my eyesight back, and I now have a great range of motion in both my wrists. But... it's a miracle that I'm alive."

You would think this accident might have persuaded Larry to jack in the stunt business and retreat up a Himalayan mountain refuge to live amongst birds and monks. But he's a former four-time jet-skiing world champion and harbours a deep love of motocross. "I'm absolutely a gearhead, no question about it," he enthuses. Almost on cue, a couple of E63s powerslide in the background, trying to replicate the anatomy and god-that-was-close hairiness of a proper chase scene around MB World's purpose-built circuit. No, after the accident, Larry just dusted himself off and got straight back into his day job: Falling Over And Jumping Around For Bruce Willis.
