Bruce Willis announced his retirement from acting due to his health condition, and we could not be more heartbroken at the news. Most well-known for his role as John McClane in the Die Hard film series, the actor has played several iconic roles throughout his career, making him one of Hollywood’s most well-known and established actors.
Let’s take a quick look at some of his roles. There was James Cole, the time traveler in the post-apocalyptic film 12 Monkeys, who had to find the cure to a deadly disease that would wipe out all of humanity. He also starred in Sixth Sense, the movie with one of the most shocking plot twists in cinematic history, as the psychologist, Malcolm Crowe.
The director of 12 Monkeys, Terry Gilliam, once described Bruce Willis as an actor who captured both strength and vulnerability, and this has to be one of the most accurate depictions of Bruce Willis as an actor.
