scene dispute between himself and other crew. Nevertheless, the problems paid off with the movie became a hit in that year. In 1987 through "Moonlighting" he received an Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series and the same year also granted him Golden Globe for Best Performance by an Actor in a TV-Series - Comedy/Musical. Certainly, he wouldn't just stand at the opening of the tunnel of stardom. He quickly engaged himself in more projects including two of Blake Edwards' directed movies "Blind Date" (1987) and "Sunset" (1988). It was either the rush or simply bland that the two movies turned out to be complete fiascos. Surprisingly, he also completed a musical comedy "The Return of Bruno" (1987) which also resulted in his first recording album under the same title and in the same year.

The marriage produced three beautiful daughters, Rumer Glenn born in 1988, Scout Larue born in 1991 and Tallulah Belle born in 1994.

He was once engaged to Brooke Burns in 2004 but it failed because they couldn't stand the long distance relationship. Since then Willis hadn't revealed any intention to marry any of his girlfriends. Back to his movie career, finally the attempt to steal the spotlight was re-obtained when he appeared in "Die Hard" (1988). Action packed and fast paced, this movie hit the market demand right on the spot. So popular that Willis had trouble releasing himself from typical roles like the lead character John McClane who was a New York cop.
Amidst the hectic filming schedule he spent sometime recording his rock album titled "If It Don't Kill You, It Just Makes You Stronger" in 1989. Unfortunately, the poor management didn't bring the album any luck. His next movie role
