Bruce Willis is a well-known actor and musician who is recognized for playing wisecracking or hard-edged characters in high-octane action flicks. He has acted in films that have made more than $2.5 billion USD in total.

His acting career began in the early 1980s, although he did not become a household name until later that decade, first after appearing alongside Cybill Shepherd in the ABC TV series Moonlighting and then as John McClane in the first Die Hard film in 1988.

According to Variety, his films such as The Sixth Sense, Armageddon, and Pulp Fiction have made more than $5 billion globally since then. He’s been nominated for five Golden Globes, one of which he won for Moonlighting, and three Emmys, two of which he won.
