Bruce Willis biography 

Bruce Willis was born in a military hospital. He has acted in more than 60 movies and is most known for playing John McClane in the films “Die Hard” and its four sequels. One of the greatest, best, and most well-known names in Hollywood and other film industries is Bruce Willis. 

Bruce Willis is one of the names that come to mind when action movies are discussed. Mr. Willis has consistently held the top position in Hollywood acting, and with the best action comes the best responsibility.

Early Life

Willis was born Walter Bruce Willis on March 19, 1955, in Idar-Oberstein, West Germany, where his father was stationed in the U.S. military at the time. Willis is the oldest of David and Marlene Willis' four children, a group that includes three sons and a daughter. In 1957, following his father's discharge from the military, Willis moved with his family to Carney's Point, New Jersey.

There, the seeds for the tough, blue-collar edge that's come to define so many of Willis' roles were planted as he watched his father feed the family through work as a welder and later a factory employee.

By all accounts, Willis, nicknamed “Bruno” by his friends, was a popular kid with a good sense of humor who in high school was elected Student Council President. He liked pranks and wasn't immune from getting into occasional trouble. Coupled with this, however, was a slightly softer side that centered on his interest in the theater and the stage. It was born oddly enough out of the realization that a stutter, which plagued his speech as a youngster, immediately went away as soon as he began performing in front of large groups.

Early Career

After graduating from high school, Willis followed in his father's footsteps and found work with his hands, first in a chemical factory and then as a security guard, before returning to the classroom as a drama student at Montclair State University in New Jersey. Willis' interest in acting didn't wane, but eager to strike out on his own, he quit school after his sophomore year and moved to New York City to try and make it as a working actor.

For Willis, whose acting heroes include Robert De Niro, Gary Cooper, Steve McQueen, and John Wayne, work didn't come easy. He waited tables, tended bar, and when he had the chance, auditioned for roles. His first real break of any kind came in 1977 when he debuted in the off-Broadway play Heaven and Earth. More stage work followed, but in 1980, Willis jumped over to film when he scored a bit role in the Frank Sinatra film The First Deadly Sin. Two years later, he landed another minor part in The Verdict, starring Paul Newman. There was some exposure on the television screen, too, with occasional appearances on episodes of Hart to Hart and Miami Vice.

Movies and TV Shows

In 1984, after replacing Ed Harris in the off-Broadway hit Fool for Love, Willis headed west to Hollywood to audition for the Madonna vehicle Desperately Seeking Susan. Willis didn't get the part, but in a decision that would prove to be incredibly smart, he stuck around an extra day in order to audition for a new romantic TV comedy called Moonlighting, set to debut the following March.
