Walter Bruce Willis, or popularly known as Bruce Willis in the entertainment field, is an actor, producer and musician. Born in West Germany on March 19, 1955, and the eldest of four children, Willis was not always fluent with his verbal expressions. In high school, he experienced stutter and was nicknamed Buck-Buck, but found that he was able to overcome it in time as he found comfort in performing on stage. He even became the president of his high school’s drama club and for the student council as well.
After high school, he had taken job roles as a security guard, transporter and a private investigator before going back to his love for acting, where he joined the drama program at Montclair State University. Then, he took up a part-time job at the West Bank Cafe in New York, in which he would fit auditions in his schedule during his time. His theatre debut was in the off-Broadway production of Heaven and Earth. When he left New York for California, he began taking parts in television shows like Moonlighting, as well as a successful alcohol advertising campaign, which he did not renew his contract with when he stopped drinking alcohol in 1988.
One of the first major film roles he got was in the 1987 film called Blind Date, but the film that made him a movie star was the 1988 film Die Hard. From then on, he has been offered many movie roles, some of the highly popular ones that earned him nominations and awards like the Die Hard series, Death Becomes Her, Pulp Fiction, Twelve Monkeys, Armageddon, and the Sixth sense, as well as lent his voice in shows like Look Who’s Talking, its sequel, and Rugrats Go Wild. He also guest-starred a number of television series like Mad About You, Ally McBeal, Friends, True West and That ’70s Show. Some of the producing jobs he contributed in are like Sunset, The Crocodile Hunter: Collision Course, and The Hip Hop Project, among many others. On October 16, 2006, he was honoured with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Willis married actress Demi Moore in 1987, and is blessed with three daughters from the marriage: Rumer, Scout LaRue, and Tallulah Belle. However, the couple divorced in 2000, and then was engaged to actress Brooke Burns but broke it up in 2004. He then married Emma Heming in 2009.
So where does Bruce Willis live? He actually has a number of properties: a property in Los Angeles, an apartment in Trump Tower and Trump Palace, home in California, ranch in Montana, beach home in Turks and Caicos, as well as a number of properties in Idaho. But where does Bruce Willis live exactly? It seems that he lives in California, but spends most of his time in the Trump Towers at New York City. He owns the production company Cheyenne Enterprises, a bar and theatre in Idaho, and is one of the cofounders of Planet Hollywood.
