Idar-Oberstein, West Germany
The eldest of four children, Bruce Willis was born on a military base in Idar-Oberstein, Germany. His father was discharged in 1957, and took the family back to the States, where they settled in Carneys Point, N.J.
Burce Willis attended high school in nearby Penns Grove, where he was elected student council president and was active in various drama clubs. Bruce attended Montclair State College largely because of its theater department. After landing a role in the play Heaven and Earth in 1977, he was motivated to quit school and pursue acting. His first break came with his role as David Addison in the hit TV show Moonlighting. Willis would eventually go on to win Emmys and Golden Globes for this role.
Bruce Willis' feature film debut came opposite Kim Basinger in the comedy Blind Date. But it was the hit action film Die Hard, directed by John McTiernan, that made him a household name.
