It is public knowledge that Kevin Smith and Bruce Willis don't like each other, not even one bit. But recently, Smith shared how bad it was for him working with the "Die Hard" star on "Cop Out."

In his book, "Kevin Smith's Secret Stash: The Definitive Visual History," the actor allegedly claims he loves making movies but that Willis doesn't.

The 51-year-old recalled the terrible experience he went through while on the set of "Cop Out," starring Willis and Tracy Morgan, in which Smith was the director.

NEVER AGAIN

According to him, the film would have been a "great experience" if it were not for the fact that he "met true darkness in Bruce Willis," and that it was "soul-crushing" working with the star.

Willis went back to his trailer and punched a hole in the bathroom wall.

SMOKING ON SET

It was reported back in 2011 that a talent rep involved in the project pointed Smith's marijuana habit as a source of problems during filming.

The same rep, whose identity is yet to be revealed, said that Smith smoked too much and just sat behind his computer without interacting with the actors whatsoever, leaving them on their own.

BUTTING HEADS

Following the statement, Smith admitted to the smoking but stated that he "dealt with every actor who wanted to be dealt with on that set," including Willis.

In the book, the star of "Jay and Silent Bob" described Willis as being lazy, and told the story of how the "Sixth Sense" actor got angry at him for allegedly "contradicting him" in front of the crew.

Smith said that after that incident, Willis went back to his trailer and punched a hole in the bathroom wall and that if he wanted to fire him, Smith "would not have cared."

But while Smith has no issue showcasing his dislike for Willis, the 66-year-old prefers not to publicly bash his fellow actor. When asked about their relationship in 2013, Willis said:

"He's just a whiner, you know? I don't have an answer for him. I'm never going to call him out and lay him out in public. Sometimes you just don't get along."

A LONG-AWAITED REUNION

Willis, one of the biggest names in Hollywood, is set to reunite with John Travolta 27 years after starring together in Quentin Tarantino's cult classic "Pulp Fiction."

The veteran stars will be working side by side in the upcoming film "Paradise City." Production has started on May 17 in Maui, Hawaii, under the direction of Chuck Russell.
