Bruce Willis, who posed for the cover of the January issue of Vanity Fair with four loop earings in his left lobe, is miffed about being a celebrity.

"I hear so much that actors should accept the intrusion on privacy because they know that's part of the game," Willis said. "But I never in my wildest dreams connected being a success in acting with any kind of loss of privacy."There is very little in terms of being a movie star, in terms of being a famous person, that I have yet to explore. It's good to get a table in a restaurant, but I wouldn't mind waiting."

Willis has said he enjoyed turning the tables and portraying sleezy tabloid reporter Peter Fallow in the upcoming movie "Bonfire of the Vanities."

"I would like to think that about two years down the line the Peter Fallow character would think about his life and blow out his brains."
