Bruce Willis

Walter Bruce Willis born on March 19th 1955 in Idar-Oberstein, West Germany. His father David Willis was an American soldier and his mother worked in a bank. They decided two years after Bruce was born to move to America after his father was discharged from the military. They moved to Penns Grove, New Jersey where his father became a welder and factory worker.
Bruce is the oldest of four siblings including sister, Florence, and a brother, David. Unfortunately his brother Robert died of pancreatic cancer in 2001 at the age of 42.
Bruce had a stutter when he was younger, which I did not know.
But by expressing himself on stage he lost his stutter. He began performing on stage and became involved academically in school activities like the drama club and became student council president.
Bruce's thoughts on religion.
"Organized religions in general, in my opinion, are dying forms", he says. "They were all very important when we didn't know why the sun moved, why weather changed, why hurricanes occurred, or volcanoes happened", he continues. "Modern religion is the end trail of modern mythology. But there are people who interpret the Bible literally. Literally! I choose not to believe that's the way. And that's what makes America cool, you know?"
Movies I like with Bruce Willis include Blind Date,Die Hard,Look Who's Talking(voice of Mikey),Billy Bathgate,The Last Boy Scout,Death Becomes Her,National Lampoon's Loaded Weapon(uncredited),Pulp Fiction,Twelve Monkeys,The Fifth Element,The Jackal,Armageddon,The Sixth Sense,The Whole Nine Yards,The Kid,Unbreakable,Bandits,Hart's War,Sin City,Lucky Number Slevin,The Astronaut Farmer(uncredited) and Surrogates.  The first thing I saw Bruce Willis in was Moonlighting and for some reason I loved that show.
Comming out in the near future...  Catch .44,The Cold Light of Day,Looper,Setup,Moonrise Kingdom.
Believe it or not they are working on a Die Hard 5 as well which I think may be a bit of an overkill but we'll see.  It might be good who knows?
Bruce's acting role models are Gary Cooper,Robert De Niro,Steve McQueen and John Wayne. At the premiere for the film Stakeout, Bruce met actress Demi Moore.  He married Moore on November 21, 1987 and had three daughters: Rumer Willis (b. August 16, 1988), Scout LaRue Willis (b. July 20, 1991) and Tallulah Belle Willis (b. February 3, 1994) before the couple divorced on October 18, 2000. The couple gave no public reason for their breakup. Regarding the divorce, He stated, "I felt I had failed as a father and a husband by not being able to make it work." He credited actor Will Smith for helping him cope with the situation.
After their breakup, rumors persisted that the couple planned to re-marry, until Demi married the actor Aston Kutcher.  Bruce has maintained a close relationship with both Demi and Aston, even attending their wedding. Bruce and Demi currently share custody of their daughters.  He was engaged to Brooke Burns until they broke up in 2004 after ten months together.  He married Emma Heming in Turks and Caicos on March 21, 2009; guests included his three daughters, Moore, and Kutcher. The ceremony was not legally binding, so the couple wed again in a civil ceremony in Beverly Hills six days later.  Bruce has also expressed interest in having more children.
