The `Die Hard` actor said that the headgear was made from "100 per cent" pure beef. "This is all natural.

It`s a meat hairpiece inspired by that crazy lady.

Lady Gaga!," said Willis on the show.

"Let me tell you, this took hours to get ready. It`s 100 per cent ground beef sirloin.

lather, rinse, repeat.

Tenderise," he joked. Not stopping at this, the star added salt and pepper to flavour the ``meat`` on the toupee before inviting Letterman to take a spoonful, which he did and spat out promptly.

After a hearty laugh from the studio audience, Willis took the hairpiece off and threw it on the floor as he carried on with the interview. Music sensation Lady Gaga drew everyone``s attention in September by wearing a controversial ensemble made out of meat to the MTV Video Music Awards.
