About Bruce Willis
Bruce Willis net worth currently amounts to $150 million, making him one of the richest actors in Hollywood. We will talk about the sources of his wealth a bit later, but for starters I would like to bring out the fact that few of you know: Willis is not only a talented actor, but also has a beautiful voice. Back in the eighties he has released a couple of original albums, The Return of Bruno and If It Don’t Kill You, It Just Makes You Stronger. Although the later of these albums did not receive much attention, The Return to Bruno was rather popular, peaking at No. 14 on the Billboard 200 album chart. The most popular track included in the record, “Respect Yourself”, reached the 5th position on Billboard Hot 100 singles chart in the US and was nearly just as possible in the United Kingdom. If you have never listened to this song before, you should definitely do it right now! This will definitely make you see Willis in a whole new light!
However, as you could have guessed, the current Bruce Willis net worth did not result from his singing career. He gained his fortune appearing in numerous successful movies and television series. Bruce’s acting career started on Off-Broadway stage and led him to television. His first prominent role on screen was in TV series Moonlighting, where he performed as David Addison Jr. His performance in this this show has earned Willis critical acclaim, which took form in two significant awards in 1987, Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series
and Golden Globe Award for Best Actor – Television Series Musical or Comedy. The actor was nominated for the same awards a year earlier, but did not win that time.
By the end of the same decade (1980s) Bruce Willis net worth growth started to intensify, as he landed a leading role in what became a hit action movie Die Hard. He earned $ 5 million for the portrayal of John McClane. As the movie achieved a great commercial success, grossing over $140 worldwide, Bruce‘s salary increased – he got $7.5 million for doing the same role in Die Hard 2. Although some of the critics were quite skeptical (for example, Empire Magazine wrote: “It’s entertaining nonsense that doesn’t quite manage to recapture the magic of the original.“), this second movie was even more profitable, drawing in almost $240 million.
As the profits made by studios producing his films increased, Bruce‘s salary fallowed. For the part in the film Live Free or Die Hard (2007) the actor has received a check for $25 million! But even this sum does not look particularly impressive compared to the amount of money this movie has earned: worldwide it grossed $383.5 million! Knowing how profitable his films are, there is no wonder Bruce Willis net worth amounts to $150 million.
