Willis' bride was cast as Perfect Stranger
Actor Bruce Willis met his new bride Emma Heming when he hand-picked her to star in his film, according to a new report.
The Die Hard star, 54, was heavily involved in the casting of his 2007 thriller Perfect Stranger - which he starred in alongside Halle Berry - taking it upon himself to sort through resumes and insisting models were recruited to play extras and fill minor speaking parts, alleges New York gossip column Page Six.
A source tells the publication, "He personally went through head shots and when the girls were called in to 'read,' he was there in the meeting. It was odd for the star of a movie to do so, but at the time he was single and I guess he needed a date."
But the actor reportedly ran into a dilemma after falling for future wife Heming - he was already dating model Tamara Feldman, who he shared a sex scene with in the suspense movie.
The source adds that Willis "started dating both Tamara and Emma but obviously, Emma eventually won out."
The couple exchanged vows at Willis' home on Parrot Cay, in the Turks and Caicos Islands on Saturday (21Mar09).
