Bruce Willis ACTOR


Bruce Willis, the oldest of four children, was born on March 19th, 1955 in Idar-Oberstein in West Germany with the birth name Walter Bruce Willis to parents, Marlene and David Willis.   His family relocated back to the United States and he was raised in Penns Grove, New Jersey.  After graduating from Penns Grove High School, where he first developed an interest in drama, Willis decided to relocate to New York City
He found various restaurant jobs while looking for work as a stage actor.  One evening while working as a bar tender, a casting director took notice of him and he was chosen to be in a film.  He then began finally finding some work in a number of Off Broadway stage productions. 
Willis continued to audition for theatrical film and television roles and finally after a small appearance on, "Miami vice", he got a decent break when he was cast in the television series, "Moonlighting" (1985).  He then was cast in the film, "Blind Date" (1987) which also starred Kim Bassinger followed by a role in, "Sunset" (1988).   
As his career progressed he was cast in a number of highly successful films such as the three Die Hard films, "Die Hard" (1988), "Die Hard 2" (1990) and "Die Hard: With a Vengeance" (1995).
Willis also did voice over work for a very popular film, "Look Who's Talking" playing baby Mikey's voice.  With just a couple film roles that he took not reaching the level of success he had become accustomed too, many of his film roles have been nothing but highly successful such as roles in, "The Last Boy Scout" (1991), "Death Becomes Her" (1992), "Pulp Fiction" (1994), "Twelve Monkeys" (1995) and "The Sixth Sense" (1999).
For the most part his acting career and roles he has chosen to undertake have been financial successes with just the occasional film not reaching the level he has come accustomed too.  Some of his latest roles such as, "Sin City" (2005), "Over the Hedge" (2006) and "Live Free or Die Hard" (2007) have helped maintain the film standards Bruce Willis should continue to be a part of.
Bruce has married twice, his first wife was another famous actress, Demi Moore whom he remained married to from 1987 through 2000.  They had three children together and they continue to have shared custody.  He then married for a second time to Emma Heming in 2009 and they remain together today.
Bruce Willis is a two-time Emmy Award winner, one time Golden Globe Award winner and a four time Saturn Award nominated actor.  He continues to live in Los Angeles, California and is working on a number of upcoming films such as, "Catch 44", "The Cold Light of Day", "Moonrise Kingdom" and "Looper".   
He also owns a home in New York, Montana, Turks and Caicos and Sun Valley, Idaho.  Along with his acting resume he has also started his own production company, Cheyenne Enterprises and owns a number of other small businesses.
