The actor kick-started during the early 1980s, but it was long after a decade that the actor became a household name. He landed his big role as he starred opposite Cybill Shepherd in the ABC television series Moonlighting and then in his 1988 breakthrough performance as John McClane in the first Die Hard film.
Bruce Willis went on to star in critically acclaimed movies, including The Sixth Sense, Armageddon, and Pulp Fiction which have been big box office hits while grossing more than $5 billion worldwide. The actor has also been nominated for Golden Globes five times while winning one for Moonlighting. It is indeed devastating that such a gifted actor has to suffer through such a painful experience.
