Bruce Willis was born on March 19, 1955 in Idar-Oberstein. The eldest of the four children of an American military man and a German housewife did not have time to remember Germany: when the future actor turned two, the family moved to Carnis Point, New Jersey.
The boy was shy, and when he was worried, he stuttered badly. To get rid of the problem, Bruce signed up for a theater group. The disadvantage evaporated, but the student soon realized that he likes to keep the attention of the audience. That is why Willis entered Montclair State University, where he shone in the student troupe, and then moved to New York.
The “Big Apple” did not promise prospects for all applicants. Bruce settled in the most criminal area of the city – Hell’s Kitchen, interrupted by roles in little-known theaters, played episodes on TV and worked as a bartender. Managers noticed him at the counter – the cocktail guru was invited to an advertisement for jeans, and then to a casting in the series Moonlight Detective Agency.
The artist wiped his nose at three thousand candidates for the role of David Addison and at the age of 29 received his first portion of fame … Is it easy now for all of us to realize that the star of Bruce Willis has sunk? On the celebrity’s 68th birthday, we remember his path to show business, love affairs and the reasons for ending his career.
