Bruce Willis has a new outlook on love and life now that he is married to actress Emma Heming.

“I went from ‘F—- love’ to ‘Love is truly the answer. I spent the last 10 years single and, for the most part, unhappy. In a dark place. I never thought that being with someone else was the answer. I would say, ‘I’m alone, but I’m not lonely.’ But I was just kidding myself. Then I started hanging around Emma, and on a day-to-day basis my life became much happier.”

The actor and his wife, 32, pose in a new provocative, avant-garde spread in the July issue of W magazine, on newsstands June 23.
