Bruce Willis, Isntagram


Guess you could say Bruce Willis turned up for his 60th.

As E! News previously mentioned, the hunky actor planned a blowout bash for his milestone birthday in New York City, and now we have all of the exclusive details on what went down inside his star-studded bash at Harlow on Saturday night!

"It was an amazing event in New York City," a source tells E! News. "It was a perfect celebration filled with old friends and family from Bruce Willis past and present. [His wife] Emma [Heming] and Bruce were really affectionate throughout the whole night. You can tell she gets along great with his kids. She was by his side all night and they danced throughout the evening."

Guests included celeb pals Patti Hansen, The Rolling Stones' Keith Richards and Tony Bennett, along with his mom Marlene and daughters Tallulah and Scout Willis.

"A few people could not show, like Bill Murray, Demi Moore and Rumer Willis, who really wanted to be there and show love for Bruce," the insider continues. "Everyone had a ball dancing the night away. When the birthday cake came everyone sang happy birthday including Tony Bennett. It was a 60th birthday to remember!"

As for what the stars munched on? Harlow owner Richie Notar tells E! News the food was a combination of passed hors d'oeuvres and stations. Hors d'oeuvres included crab croquettes, hamachi crudo, mac and cheese balls and vegetable skewers. At the stations there was sirloin, pasta, Branzino. Yum!

Bruce and Emma brought in a DJ, who played something for everyone since there was a wide variety of ages at the party. "There was everything from '60s and '70s hits to house music and Frank Sinatra," Notar explains. "People were up and dancing."

Unfortunately, Bennett did not go up to the stage and sing, but Notar mentions that the iconic crooner did talk to Keith Richards for a while which was "mind-blowing" to see. "I walked Keith Richards into the kitchen at one point and everyone in there freaked out. Everyone loves seeing Keith."

Later in the night, "Emma made a speech, Scout made a speech and a childhood friend of Bruce's spoke," he adds. "The friend talked about how Bruce has always been there for him, before he was famous and ever since. But that's Bruce. He's a real guy's guy and he's very loyal to his friends."

After the speeches and before indulging in a chocolate fondant cake, "Bruce thanked everyone. He kept it short and sweet, but made it clear he was very touched. He was honest and thankful. He also made a reference to his anniversary with Emma and how happy he is."

"It was a beautiful crowd. I was happy to have it at my restaurant."
