It’s Bruce Willis birthday, meaning it’s a good day to Die Hard. It also means it’s a good day to learn all the deets on the ultimate American action movie star. (Photo: WENN)
Bruce Willis isn’t even his real name. He was born Walter Bruce Willison. (Photo: WENN)
He’s quite the American action movies actor, but Bruce was in fact born in Germany to an American soldier and a German woman. He moved to New Jersey when he was 2. (Photo: WENN)
He is a leftie! Maybe that’s why he is so good with a hand on his (left) hand. (Photo: WENN)
Bruce had a stutter as a child. He soon realized that he stuttered much less on stage while playing a character. He eventually overcame his speech impediment. (Photo: WENN)
Much like the characters he usually plays on movies, after high school, Bruce started working as a security guard and eventually became a private investigator. (Photo: WENN)
Besides movies, Bruce also ventured in the music industry in 1987 with his album “The Return of Bruno.” His song “Respect Yourself” actually reached #5 on the charts. (Photo: WENN)
The role of Malcolm Crowe in “The Sixth Sense” was actually written specifically for Bruce. (Photo: WENN)
Remember that time he guest star on Friends? He agreed to appear on the show for free after losing a bet with Matthew Perry on the set of “The Whole Nine Yards.” (Photo: WENN)
Bruce is also quite the businessman! He is the co-founder of Planet Hollywood, along with Sylvester Stallone, Demi Moore, and Arnold Schwarzenegger. (Photo: WENN)
He was married to Demi Moore from 1987 to 2000. (Photo: WENN)
They have three children together: Rummer, Tallulah Belle, and Scout LaRue. (Photo: WENN)
When his former wife got married to Ashton Kutcher in 2005, Bruce attended the wedding. Some are surprised that he still remains friends with Demi. (Photo: WENN)
In 2008 he married model Emma Heming, who is 23 years younger than him. (Photo: WENN)
No wonder his net worth is around $180 million, right?! Not bad Bruce—not bad. (Photo: WENN)
Sixty-three years ago, a bald little baby was born in Idar-Berstein, West Germany. Little did his parents know that their son would grow up to become a movie legend,
Demi Moore’s husband, and bald (again).
But despite becoming a pop culture icon thanks to his roles as off-duty NYPD officer John McClane, former Special Forces soldier Korben Dallas, or though southpaw boxer Butch Coolidge, there’s a lot more to Bruce Willis than his impressive curriculum.
Join us in celebration of his special day and learn 15 things every die-hard Bruce Willis fan (pun intended, of course) should know about everyone’s favorite action movie star!
