Audience will always be reminded about his 'save-the-world' movies. Aside from being famous as Demi Moore's ex-husband, Bruce Willis is also the actor and musician known to have been through lots of ups and downs in his acting profession yet still manages to remain subtle and wise in facing problems, "You can't undo the past... but you can certainly not repeat it."

Instead, he keeps his works evolving for almost 25 years. Considering the constant fortitude, he is one of the actors who deserve a standing ovation.

The bald actor was born March 19, 1955 in Idar-Oberstein, West Germany. His father David Willis served military there before retiring in 1957 when he moved his family back to New Jersey. Young Willis never dreamt that he would see himself acting. As a child, he had a speech impediment, but magically it disappeared whenever he performed in front of the class. It marked the beginning of his interest in acting. However, graduated from Penns Grove High School, NJ in 1973 after being suspended for three months due to his involvement in a racial confrontation, he wasn't determined to go to college. Instead, he took several ordinary jobs, like security guards, labor works, etc while digging his musical talents as the harmonica player of local blues band Loose Goose. Soon he realized that something was missing. He longed for acting again. Therefore, he quickly registered himself to Montclair State College in New Jersey and majored in drama. His first enroll on stage was Tennessee Williams' "Cat On A Hot Tin Roof." Loving what he was doing, he continued attending auditions in New York.
