Is Bruce Willis still earning after he retired?
Willis family delivered a devastating news about the singer-actor’s condition as his aphasia diagnosis progressed to frontotemporal dementia or FTD. He received a clear diagnosis months after he retired from the industry.
As he continues his battle against the uncurable and untreatable condition, queries about Bruce Willis’ net worth and potential earnings emerged after retirement.
Bruce Willis’ Net Worth 2023
According to Celebrity Net Worth, Bruce Willis’ net worth as of 2023 is $250 million. He gained most of it as he worked as an actor, producer, and musician.
The West Germany native star started his career when he was cast in “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof” while attending Montclair State University.
From there, he began appearing in more movies and series, including “The Sixth Sense,” “The Kid,” “Grand Champion,” “Tears of the Sun,” “Hostage,” “Sin City,” “Lucky Number Slevin,” “What Just Happened,” “The Cold Light of Day,” “Glass,” “Paradise City,” and “Detective Knight.”
Willis might receive more as his 2023 film, “Assassin,” is yet to be released.
The Screen Actors Guild-American Federation of Television and Radio Artists said some actors earn even after working on flicks. Some do not. Whenever Willis’ shows get reruns or syndicated, redistributed, purchased by a streaming service, or released on DVD, he would surely get residual checks, also known as royalties.
Out of the movies he made, Willis received the highest paycheck from “The Sixth Sense.” He scored a $14 million salary from the film on top of his earnings from its gross receipts. He ended up bringing home $100 million from the movie.
From the 1980s until his retirement, he usually had 8-figure or more salaries, pushing his net worth to reach a whopping amount.
