Bruce Willis has opened up about his daughters with Demi Moore.
The Moonrise Kingdom star, 57, spoke to Esquire magazine about being a father to his three daughters with ex-wife Moore.
The actor said he hopes he has been able to teach their children - Rumer, 23, Scout, 20, and Tallulah, 18 - to 'shun drama'.
Willis, who has remained close friends with Moore since their split in 2000 after 13 years of marriage, explained:
"Sometimes I have to resist the urge to speak. I learned it from dealing with my kids. That's my number-one rule. I'd rather hear what [my daughters] have to say.
"And this stuff is just a matter of not equating drama with actions that will help them. Teach them to shun drama."
The actor, who welcomed a new daughter, Mabel, with wife Emma Hemming in April, said he has grown as a father figure over the years.
He shared some of the advice he gave his three older daughters when they were growing up, explaining: "You have to give them a code. Beginning with things like 'Don't bite people.' That becomes something like 'It's not okay to be mean. Ever.' That was our watchword when the girls were younger."He added: "Take responsibility for when you are wrong... They hear you own up, and they learn to own up."
