21 Celebrity Military Brats



The star of Die Hard, Pulp Fiction, Armageddon and countless other box-office hits does in fact look like someone who either belongs in the army or has had a lot to do with it, especially now that he’s older. Maybe he gives off that impression due to his tough guy roles but Bruce Willis did in fact grow up a military brat.

Bruce Willis’ birth certificate lists Idar-Oberstein, a US Army base in what was then West Germany, as his birthplace. His father was an American soldier and his mother was German. When Willis was two years old, his father was discharged from service and he moved the family back to the States, to New Jersey, to be specific. His father worked in a factory, as a welder and a mechanic, and his mother was a bank clerk. Willis often stressed his background was a “blue collar” one.
