Bruce Willis is a German-born American actor, producer, and musician. His career began in television in the 1980s, most notably as David Addison in Moonlighting and has continued both in television and film since, including comedic, dramatic, and action roles. He is well known for the role of John McClane in the Die Hard series, which were mostly critical and uniformly financial successes. He has also appeared in over sixty films, including box office successes like Pulp Fiction, 12 Monkeys, The Fifth Element, Armageddon, The Sixth Sense, Unbreakable, Sin City, Looper and Moonrise Kingdom.
The actor snagged a deal on the prewar place, which was listed by U2 bassist Adam Clayton in October for $8.695 million. The apartment is in the “famed” El Dorado building, which has hosted a number of celebs over the years, including U2 frontman Bono and actor Alec Baldwin.
Built in 1930, Willis’ new home faces Central Park, with views from three of the rooms, including the generous master suite. Described as an “art deco gem,” the apartment was originally two separate units that Clayton converted into an elegant space with high-end appliances, custom cabinetry, slate countertops and terrazzo floors.
The 3-bedroom, 4-bath home will be plenty of space for Willis, his wife, Emma Heming, and their toddler daughter.
Willis used to live in Central Park West with former wife Demi Moore. He also owns a number of properties across the U.S., including a few holdings in Ketchum, Idaho and two homes in Beverly Hills.
Price Paid: $8 Million
