Born March 19, 1955 in Western Germany, in the city of Idar - Oberstein, where his father, David Willis, was a civilian employee in the American military unit. He grew up in Penns Grove (New Jersey, USA). Studied at Montclair College. Of the four children in the family, Bruce was the oldest.
At the age of eight, Bruce Willis began to study in an amateur drama studio (and this despite stuttering!), Tries to sing along with harmonica in the blues ensemble “Luz-Goose”, plays in a student theater group, and then on the off-Broadway stage in New York, for which in 1977 (he was 22 years old) he dropped out of college.
Attempts to get roles in the cinema, on stage, on television did not lead to anything. In the evenings, Bruce Willis filled the mountain with alcohol.
In his desire to become an actor, he showed miracles of perseverance, but his efforts were not adequately appreciated by the luminaries of show business. More precisely, Willis’s talent was truly appreciated not on the stage, but at the counter of the popular New York cafe Cafe Central, where artistic bohemia spent time. “Bruce Willis rode around the bar on roller skates, dressed in pants, wide as a parachute, a torn shirt, with a bandage on his head. He always sang something, or chuckled, or played his harmonica.” Recall the artist’s biographers. Work at the bar was combined with persistent attempts to bring closer his "finest hour" in theater and cinema. Bruce Willis had to play many unremarkable roles in category B films and commercials. He "played" the first role in front of the camera in a Levyce jeans commercial.
In 1984, after one successful role in the off-Broadway stage version of Sam Shepard’s play “The Fool in Love”, where Bruce Willis played the main role, the first praise was written about him and invited to auditions in Los Angeles. Bruce Willis was pleased that he was in Los Angeles and was able to watch the Olympics, it was she who was more interested in him than the proposed role. And it was only by chance that on the last day before Bruce Willis left, they dragged him into the studio for tests in the pilot issue of the series "Moonlight". And then the story began with a capital letter. The well-known New York actor liked the producers so much that instead of an episodic role, Sybill Shepard herself took him into partners. In the very first months of work on the series, Bruce Willis becomes insanely popular, journalists write a "screen" romance with Sybill. The press intensifies interest in Willis. Bruce Willis also at about this time (in 1987) met the aspiring actress Demi Moore, who then starred mainly in the passing films. His relationship with Demi Moore began to develop rapidly. Soon they became husband and wife.
Willis from the mid-80s starred in the series "Moonlight". This series, which went on television in America from 1985 to 1989, made Willis not only a popular performer, but also the embodiment of a new male ideal - the ideal of the second half of the 80s. "Moonlight" was nominated for an Emmy Award in 16 categories, including for the best male role. Bruce Willis, awarded this prestigious award, full of creative strength and self-confidence, made his debut in 1987 in the "first-rate" Hollywood production - a comedy directed by B. Edwards "Absentee Date". The debut was recognized as successful, and opened the actor wide horizons.
The role of the New York policeman John McClain in the movie "Die Hard" (1988) showed how well you can use the features of a popular image. The commercial success of Die Hard allowed Willis to “spin up” the screen biography of his hero in two sequels - Die Hard-2 and Die Hard Strong, filmed in 1990. At a time when viewers associated Willis with the hero of this "McClain Saga", the actor starred in other roles. Still, admirers of Willis' talent prefer to see him in more extravagant situations - for example, hovering (without understudies and combined shooting) on a hang glider in the film "Hudson Hawk" (1991). He plays in comic roles, for example, in the fantastic comedy "Death to her face" (1992).
The actor does not forget about his passion for music: in the film “Look, Who Still Says” (1990), he sings a song of his own composition, and his long-playing solo album “Bruce Willis: Bruno Returns” was published in 1987.
According to the actor himself, he does not consider his personal life a subject for wide discussion. The press, however, does not miss the opportunity to tell in detail about each new event in the "off-screen" life of Bruce Willis.
Bruce Willis considers such idols and role models to be such unlike actors as Robert de Niro, Robert Duvall, Al Pacino, Carey Grant, Bob Hope, Robert Mitchell, as well as Steve McQueen. All the famous colleagues of Willis have many prizes and awards, Willis has nothing but spectator love. In 1994, he was not nominated for an Oscar for Pulp Fiction, although all of Bruce's partners were nominated. The academy passed Bruce's brilliant work on 12 Monkeys. Bruce Willis, fortunately, is a cheerful person and does not make tragedy out of this. Also, this does not affect the material well-being of the actor. Today, Bruce Willis is one of the highest paid actors in Hollywood.

About his own popularity, Bruce Willis says, not shy in the expressions. On Earth there remained a couple of countries where, by his own admission, the actor does not need to hide behind dark glasses and a hat. In his youth, the Hollywood star hoped that he would achieve something in life in the interval from 40 to 60 years. And the hopes came true.
Willis does not regret about the committed deeds, because life is not like a movie, takes are not there, and "what you regret now, in the future leads to something great." The actor is especially pleased that he no longer has to run in front of the camera with weapons in his hands, depicting a hero.
Childhood and youth
"Die Hard" Walter Bruce Willis was born in March 1955 in Western Germany, in the city of Idar-Oberstein. Father David Willis was a civilian employee in an American military unit, an American by birth. Mother is German, a housewife.
Bruce Willis in childhood
In addition to Bruce, three younger children grew up in the family. After completing his father's service in the Armed Forces, the family returned to Penns Grove (New Jersey, USA) in 1957.
As a child, Bruce Willis stuttered a lot. The excitement literally deprived the boy of speech. To overcome this annoying defect, Willis went to school theater club. There he realized that he liked to speak to a large audience. Stuttering is gone. Here, Bruce felt the first thrill of power over the audience. The future action hero played the first roles on the stage of the school drama circle in amateur productions of Shakespeare and Williams.
Bruce Willis in his youth
After leaving school, Willis entered Montclair State University, where he also played in the student theater team. Then - on the off-Broadway stage in New York, for which he dropped out of school.
Bruce Willis's acting talent was noticed not on the stage, but at the bar of the popular New York bar "Centrale", where artistic bohemia spent time. Bruce Willis rode around the bar on roller skates and had a frankly exotic look: a torn T-shirt, parachute-wide pants and a colorful headband. The cheerful bartender constantly sang something, choked, or played the harmonica.
The first "role" in front of the camera guy 183 cm tall played in an advertisement for jeans "Levi's". The creative biography of Bruce Willis began with episodic roles in little-known theaters and television productions. But he did not lose heart and tirelessly visited all kinds of auditions and auditions, without giving up filming in advertising.
Bruce Willis and Sybill Shepherd in the series Detective Agency Moonlight
Great success came to Bruce Willis after his appearance in the series "Detective Agency" Moonlight "." The project was nominated for an Emmy Award in 16 categories, including for best performance of a male role. The actor gained the fame of a comedian. Only in 1988, when Bruce starred in the legendary Die Hard, the artist was seen in a different light. Now the image of an invincible world savior has stuck to him.
Arnold Schwarzenegger, Richard Gere, Sylvester Stallone claimed for the role of John McClain in Die Hard. However, the producers chose the last guest Willis.
Bruce Willis in the movie Die Hard
This film brought the actor deafening fame and many new roles, as a rule, of the same type. Now Willis appeared on the screen in the image of a courageous lone hero saving lives. Apart from the sequels of Die Hard, Bruce played similar screen images in the films The Fifth Element, Mercury in Danger, and At the Distance of Impact.
In order to destroy the template and break the stereotype of the tough guy attached to it, Willis starred in the film “Out of the City” by the famous director Norman Juison. Here, Bruce is no longer a "tough nut" John McClain, but a much-suffering Vietnam War veteran. Critics approved: psychologically, the image was completely successful for the actor.Soon, in the film “Bonfire of Ambition”, viewers saw another unusual Willis - an inventive reporter for a popular newspaper.
Bruce Willis and Michelle Pfeiffer in the film "The Story of Us"
In the tragicomedy "The Story of Us" (1999), Willis showed himself in all its glory as a dramatic actor, starring with the inimitable Michelle Pfeiffer. The star acting duo embodied on the screen the story of a married couple who had a crisis after 15 years of marriage.
Although rare, Willis had to play not only good guys. One of the most striking was the role of a killer named Jackal in the film of the same name (1997). With his brilliant play, Willis, according to many critics, overshadowed the enemy from the good, which was performed by Richard Gere. And the famous grin even made me empathize with the bloodthirsty character.
Bruce Willis in the movie Pulp Fiction
And still, fans of Willis's talent prefer to see their pet as a hero without fear and reproach. Like in the film Hudson Hawk, where Willis hovers on a hang glider without backups and combined shooting, Armageddon, where his hero saves the planet Earth, in Fifth Element, where Bruce prevents a catastrophe of universal proportions. In other images, the artist is perceived with difficulty. So, the comedy action movie “The Hudson Hawk,” where the actor departs from the image of the furious action movie loved by fans, failed at the box office.
But the critics disagreed with the audience: they believe that the actor’s best roles were secondary roles in "Pulp Fiction" by Quentin Tarantino and "No Fools" by Paul Newman.
Bruce Willis in the movie Armageddon
Willis showed himself not only in action films, comedies and dramas, but also in psychological films. The thriller The Sixth Sense (1999) was one of the highest grossing films in American history. This tape brought the artist a surge of popularity and an enviable fee of $ 100 million. Especially for the film "The Sixth Sense", the actor, left-handed in life, had to relearn to write with the right hand in the frame.
During the filming of "The Perfect Stranger," the actor unexpectedly refused to star in the bed price with Oscar-winning Holly Berry. Willis motivated this by the fact that next to Berry he would look stupid. As a result, the actors had to shoot separately, and the film released in 2007 was the first in which computer technology was used to process the bed scene.

In the crime thriller “Hostage,” Bruce's daughter company was Rumer Glenn. The project “Double KOPets” was remembered by the performer of the main role of a policeman in that, unlike the films where the partners are representatives of different nationalities, this comedy did not focus on the racial affiliation of the heroes. In addition, “Die Hard” was parodied in the picture, and these scenes were included at the insistence of Willis. The actor noted that he had earned the right to laugh at himself.
In 2013, Bruce Willis joined the cast ensemble of the adventure film "Throw Cobra 2". The actor acted as an army general helping the superheroes of the covert Cobra unit fight the G.I. Joe

In the thriller Wake, Bruce was entrusted with playing a criminal who had arrived at his brother’s funeral. And this time the hero would have to save the inhabitants of his native city, but the shooting was stopped a week after the start. The reason is the lack of funding. In order not to risk parallel projects, the actor refused to further participate in the film.
The action of the fantastic thriller “Welcome to Paradise” (“Anger”) takes place in the future, in a city inhabited by androids. The character of Willis protects humanity from a robot that intends to avenge people for bullying.

In the criminal action movie Raiders, Bruce appeared as the owner of a network of attacked banks. Looted thieves donate to charity. The FBI, which investigates crimes, is inclined to think that this is a kind of punishment for a banker who conducts business in an dishonest manner.
A companion to a movie star in the comedy “His Dog Business” was a Jack Russell Terrier dog. Willis reincarnated as the owner of the dog, a private detective who dreams of peace. When a pet is kidnapped, the hero of Bruce has to follow the instructions of the criminals.
Bruce Willis in the movie Split
The Split horror film introduced David Dunn, a character from the thriller Invulnerable, which was released in 2000, already familiar to the audience. True, in “Split” the protagonist, in whose consciousness 23 personalities live, was played by James Makevoy. The new, 24th, personality makes a man abduct and kill women.
In the final part of the picture, visitors to the bar compare the killer with a terrorist nicknamed Mr. Glass. Bruce appears for a moment, thus becoming the link between the two films. And the director Knight Shyamalan added intrigue, saying that the characters of the paintings will collide with each other in a new project.
Biography of Bruce Willis contains many other pages not related to the movie. At the age of 60, he made his Broadway debut in the play Misery, staged from the book of Stephen King.

Previously, I tried to prove myself as a businessman. The actor invested a considerable amount of capital in the restaurant business, becoming a co-owner of the Planet Hollywood restaurant chain. But in October 1999, Willis, along with business partners, declared Planet Hollywood bankrupt. There are a dozen restaurants around the world.
In the European branches of Planet, the actor sometimes arranges small recitals with the Accelerators group playing the blues. By the way, Willis released 2 albums in the 80s, performed in the style of a classic country.
The personal life of Bruce Willis is not a subject for public discussion. So the actor himself believes. This is probably why the fashionable family mansion in Hollywood is surrounded by a 6-foot-high wall, which, however, does not interfere with the press, and often savor the details of the life of the star.
Bruce Willis and Demi Moore
Bruce Willis met his first wife Demi Moore during the filming of the series "Detective Agency" Moonlight "." Demi was then an aspiring actress who starred in episodic roles of low-budget films. However, like the future husband. And although Bruce was credited with an affair with Sybill Shepard at that time, in fact it was an advertising move designed to promote the series. Real relationships and a stormy romance developed over the set between Bruce and Demi Moore.
In November 1987, the couple legalized the relationship. Soon 3 daughters were born to them - Rumer, Scout and Talula Bel. But family life, which was considered exemplary, suddenly ended: in 1998 the couple announced the breakup, and in October 2000, Bruce Willis and Demi Moore divorced.
Demi married Ashton Kutcher, and Bruce married actress and model Emma Heming. The chosen one, in whose veins Indian and British blood flows, was included in the list of the 100 sexiest women on the planet. Moreover, the actor and his new wife were also not at all embarrassed by the significant age difference.
Bruce and Emma have 2 daughters growing up: Mabel Ray and Evelyn Penn. The family lives in New York, in an apartment near Central Park.

The fame did not come right away - Willis had to play in little-known theaters for several years and play episodic roles in television productions before he was noticed and invited to star in the television series Detective Agency Moonlight (1985-1989).

Subsequently, Willis repeatedly returned to the role of a lone hero - it is enough to recall such films as The Fifth Element, Mercury in Danger, as well as four rather successful sequels of Die Hard.

In the late 1990s, another recession followed, but in 1999, Willis played the main role in the film The Sixth Sense, which fell in love with both viewers and critics.
