Goldblum happy to wake up as Willis

Jeff Goldblum would have no problems if he woke up as Bruce Willis.

Die Hard star Bruce is known for his shiny pate, while Jeff still has a slightly fuller head of hair.

The Jurassic Park star wouldn't mind swapping looks with his fellow actor.

"I would enjoy my hair, my buzz hair," Jeff laughed to Empire magazine when asked what he would do if he woke up as Bruce one day.

"That's a very enjoyable haircut to have."

Jeff, 60, is a recognisable face in Hollywood and has enjoyed memorable cameos in shows such as Friends and Glee.

While he might not be fazed by waking up as a fellow star now, he can remember a time when famous faces left him amazed.

"Oh my gosh, oh boy, oh boy, the first celebrity I ever remember seeing was Darren McGavin [star of horror series Kolchak: The Night Stalker]," he remembered.

"He was on vacation and we were on vacation too. I couldn't stop thinking, 'Will I see him at breakfast? Should I go up to him if I see him?' But I'm starstruck with all kinds of people."

Thanks to his many movie roles, Jeff has amassed a fortune as well as fame.

While he's no longer sure of the price of a pint of milk, the actor can remember a time he resorted to petty theft.

"Gee, when I was nine years old I think I took a pencil from a convenience store, but I showed it to my mom in the car on the way home and she said, 'That's bad. We're going to go right back there and we're going to give it back to the man and apologise.' That's what I did," he laughed.
