“Hair loss is God’s way of telling me I’m human.”
Born in 1955 in Germany, where his father was stationed in the army, but raised, from the age of two, in New Jersey, Bruce Willis sampled a variety of careers before turning to acting, finally hitting the big time as cocky private eye David Addison in telly sensation Moonlighting (1985-89).
Setting his sights on movie stardom he hit the nail on the head with Die Hard (1988), cinema’s ultimate action movie. A capable actor who shifts through the genres more comfortably than most, Willis has made fair his share of turkeys over the years but just as many classics, not just action movies, but horrors, thrillers, comedies and dramas.
Regardless of his recent tendency to slum it in forgettable fight flicks, Bruce still surprises with movies like Moonrise Kingdom and Looper, both in 2012. We’re also rather excited to see him in Sin City: A Dame to Kill For (2014), though we could live without Die Hardest (2015). Oh yeah, and obviously he’s also in Expendables 3 (2014).
