Bruce Willis is an American movie star known for playing tough, wisecracking characters in some of the most popular films of the 1980s and 90s. His breakout movie role was as detective John McClane in the 1988 film "Die Hard," in which his character faced off against a band of thieves in a skyscraper. The role, with its iconic "Yippee-ki-yay" catchphrase, established Willis as a hard-boiled action hero, and the film spawned four sequels. Later films included "The Last Boy Scout," "Death Becomes Her" and "Pulp Fiction," the latter of which grossed $107 million in 1994 and received seven Oscar nominations.
Bruce Willis starred in many popular science-fiction films throughout the 90s, including "12 Monkeys" and "The Fifth Element." In 1998 he played an oil driller in the space adventure "Armageddon," which was the second highest-grossing film of the year. The following year he starred in the horror film "The Sixth Sense," which is his highest-grossing film as of 2015 with an adjusted domestic gross of $467 million.Learn more about Art & Literature
