"X" MARKS THE BRUCE

"X" MARKS THE BRUCE

When the new BRUCE WILLIS flick, "A Couple of Dicks," wound up with a wrap party in New York, the only absent member of cast and crew was Bruce himself - which surprised nobody because the star and director KEVIN SMITH had clashed nastily.

An eyewitness says Bruce high-handedly made "creative" changes to every single one of his scenes, stomping on director Smith - who let him get away with it "because he's Bruce Willis."

When Smith stood at the wrap party to make a toast, he bellowed: "I want to thank everyone who worked on the film, except for Bruce Willis…who is a F-----G DICK!"

Everyone cheered wildly, waving their memento gifts - metallic water bottles featuring Bruce's kisser with a big "X" drawn through it.
