Bruce Willis Quotes

Bruce Willis Actor

Bruce Willis quotes: the A-list actor’s quotes on career, being a dad, forgetting he’s a multimillionaire, the delicacy of life, and more.

“You can’t undo the past… but you can certainly not repeat it.”

“Life is short, even if you live to 90.  Live to the fullest – that’s how I feel.  Appreciate every moment, every hour, every day, because in a blink of an eye, it’s all over.”

“Do you know who is a loser?  A true loser is the one who is so afraid of losing that he never even dares to try.”

“I think that the ‘what if’ game is what you guys get to do.  I don’t have to do that.  I hate the ‘what if’ game.  I’m such a believer in everything happening the way it’s supposed to happen.”

“Art imitates life and, sometimes, life imitates art.  It’s a weird combination of elements.”

“The difference between trying to be fit and not being fit really means the difference between life and death.”

“Whether you’re a man or not comes from your heart, not how much hair you have on your head.”

“I remember saying when I was a kid, 50 seemed so old – 50 is, like, your life’s over.  And I’m in the best shape I’ve ever been in, in my life.  I think we’re all only as old as we feel in our heart.  I feel about 24, 25 in my heart.  And science being what it is and making enormous leaps and bounds – I’m counting heavily on science, let’s just say that.”

“It doesn’t matter how many people I’ve killed.  What matters is how I get along with the people who are still alive.”

“Every day, I work at not taking this fame thing seriously.  Fortunately, I have a great group of friends who help me do this.”

“I’ve always had confidence.  Before I was famous, that confidence got me into trouble.  After I got famous, it just got me into more trouble.”

“I think the rules are going to have to change for me to ever run for public office.  My checkered past will always keep me out of politics.”

“There are, I think, three countries left in the world where I can go and I’m not as well-known as I am here.  I’m a pretty big star, folks – I don’t have to tell you.  Superstar, I guess you could say.”

“Everybody understands that acting is a really difficult job.  It’s hard work.  You’ve got to get dressed up, you’ve got to hang around with beautiful women.  It’s difficult.  It’s a problem.”

“I think I’m very fortunate.  I get asked to do a lot of things.  Some of them include weapons, some of them include jokes, and time to time, some of them include making out with women that I’m not married to.  How often does that happen?  What about you guys, does that ever come out in your job?  Do you ever get told, ‘Today you’re going to kiss three or four of the women at the press conference, and you can choose who they are?'”

“I’m always excited to be around other actors.  I sometimes only get to work with myself, and it’s so tedious.”

“I just have more fun when I get to try new things – and the action film genre has kind of painted itself into a corner, copied itself so many times and it has basically run out of bad buys.”

“If I had a choice, I would do comedy all the time.  It’s just the most challenging thing.  To make someone laugh is the most challenging thing… and the most rewarding thing… in entertainment.”

“I never think about the downs.  Well, only when I get asked during interviews.”

“Life is short, isn’t it?  Seems short.  You’ve got to live it up, have fun, laugh, eat good food, do whatever you want, don’t hurt people, and try to have as much fun as you can.  Don’t you think?  Start making out with everyone right now!  Don’t you worry, just tell whoever you try to kiss at a restaurant or wherever that Mr. Willis told you to.”

“I’ve given up on trying to explain myself, or trying to set the record straight, or trying to get people to understand what I’m really like as a man, outside of my acting, outside of my job.”

“I’m much more proud of being a father than being an actor.”

“I think I’m much more afraid of making a mistake in raising my daughters than I would be with any work that I do, as an actor.  It’s a much higher scale of fear, raising kids.”

“Your kids need your love and attention, and being able to devote myself to them is very fulfilling.  As I get older, spending time with my daughters makes things much easier.  You learn to put your ego aside.”

“I just try to go to work, and concentrate on coming home to my girls.”

“I think I’m even more open and more giving as a father now.  I pay more attention now because I value it more and I’m less caught up with my career.”

“They hear you own up, and they learn to own up.”

“My wife heard me say ‘I love you’ a thousand times, but she never once heard me say sorry.”

“I believe in justice, and I believe in people being held responsible for their actions.”

“Violence – look, we live in a violent world, man.  This country was founded on violence.  Who’s kidding who?”

“I wake up laughing every day.  I get a kick out of life.”

“I’m staggered by the question of what it’s like to be a multi-millionaire.  I always have to remind myself that I am.”

“It’s solid gold.  I’m going to put it up on my mantle.”

“I like having the dough to come and go as I please.”

“I’m really just a regular guy who has had an incredibly blessed life.”

“I’m happy every day.”
