Bruce Willis has had the kind of career most actors dream about. After getting his start in the New York theater scene, he moved to Los Angeles. He had only been on the West Coast for one year when he booked the role that would make him a breakout star. Cast as David Addison, Jr. on "Moonlighting", he spent the next five years establishing himself as a romantic and comic lead. He then shifted his focus, and shot to even greater stardom, appearing in the action film, "Die Hard". The "Die Hard" franchise has become one of the most successful action franchises ever, and the fifth film in the series, "A Good Day to Die Hard" opens this month. While his career has seen its share of rough patches ("Hudson Hawk" and "The Color of Night" spring to mind), he has had far more successes than flops. His starring roles in such films as "Pulp Fiction", "The Fifth Element", "The Sixth Sense", "The Whole Nine Yards", "Sin City", "Red", "The Expendables 1 & 2", and "Looper", have made him very popular worldwide, and very wealthy. He owns multiple properties around the world, and this month he went into contract to buy a massive co-op apartment on the Upper West Side.
Bruce Willis' house in the El Dorado building on the Upper West Side of Manhattan has three bedrooms and four bathrooms. The unit has been extensively renovated. The maids' quarters were absorbed into the kitchen, and a bedroom became a separate dressing space for the master bedroom. Bruce Willis' house also features a formal entry gallery that is 38 feet long, a massive living room that looks out over Central Park, and a start-of-the-art eat-in kitchen with an attached butler's pantry. There are also multiple walk-in closets, a fireplace, hardwood floors, marble hallways, and floor-to-ceiling windows. Bruce Willis' house cost $8.695 million, but the price tag probably left him unfazed. When you've starred in some of the most successful films ever, you don't need to get nervous about laying out almost $9 million.
