The Bruce Willis Movie You Are Based On Your Zodiac Sign

For decades, Bruce Willis was one of the biggest, and perhaps most versatile, names in Hollywood. He redefined the action blockbuster with "Die Hard," established himself as a character actor in "Pulp Fiction," a comedic one in "Blind Date" and "Death Becomes Her," transitioned to sexy thrillers like "The Color of Night" and twisty supernatural fare with "The Sixth Sense," made cult classics like "Hudson Hawk" and "12 Monkeys," put his talents on display in albums and commercials, opened restaurants (sometimes shirtless), got animated in everything from his "Bruno the Kid" series to "Over the Hedge" to Gorillaz videos, and did it all with a signature grin and willingness to laugh at himself. While he may have been characterized primarily as an action star for much of his career, a proper look at his full body of work reveals an impressive versatility and a huge number of classics.

After breaking out with the sexy, fast-movingwall-breaking "Moonlighting" (alongside Cybill Shepherd), the former bartender turned Emmy winner made a permanent transition to film, playing all manner of soldiers, superheroes, government agents, and of course, regular joes. Though he cemented himself early on as a "tough guy" actor, he never lost the everyman sensibilities that made him a success.

Because Willis has had such a long and varied career, there's something for everyone in his catalog of credits. Every personality can find a match somewhere in his roles. Look for your zodiac sign below for a breakdown on which Bruce Willis movie is likely closest to your own personality.

Aries: Die Hard

Big, bold, flashy, and confident, Aries is the main character of the zodiac calendar. Ruling from March 21 to April 19, the fire sign is known for its competitive energy, fierce determination, and occasionally hot temper. Those who wear Aries are generally inclined to feats of physical or athletic prowess, and they rarely back down from a challenge. If you're looking for the patent Aries in Bruce Willis' film catalog, look no further than "Die Hard."

"Die Hard" is arguably the actor's most famous film, making it sort of the "main character" of his long and storied career. It's also an intense action flick that's all about one man overcoming the odds and saving the day. Just like how it's tough to keep an Aries down, the "Die Hard" franchise ran for years and years, totaling five movies and a number of extraneous comics and video games.

Aries always want to make their mark on the world, and "Die Hard" certainly did that by establishing one of the most successful and beloved action series in modern history. But just within the first film, there are plenty of signifiers for the fire sign. It's a high-energy, high-momentum story filled with tension and risk, but in the end, heroism prevails. That's the Aries dream in a nutshell.

Taurus: Looper

At first glance, "Looper" might not seem like a great fit for the Earth sign Taurus. Ruling from April 20 to May 20, Taurus typically stands for stability, devotion, and occasionally even stubbornness. Like the bull that represents it, Taurus is seen as stoic and unmovable in many ways, and those who wear the sign tend to be homebodies who resist change and anything out of the ordinary.

In addition to being an amazing website, "Looper" is a whole movie about things being out of the ordinary — a story filled with time travel, crime syndicates, assassination plotlines, and twists. However, there are other elements of the film that make it a surprisingly good match with Taurus. For starters, "Looper" can be viewed as a story about stubbornness — about the boundaries humans can and can't change about the world, and about ourselves. It's a movie that shows the dark side of an adventurous lifestyle and the joy that can only be found in peaceful escapes. These are ideas that Taurus-bearers know well.

Additionally, "Looper" is a sci-fi film that manages to feel fiercely grounded. It's not some over-the-top portrait of future cities and human evolution (those come later on this list), but a fiercely personal tale about what time will never change about people. Plus, just like Taurus is one of the most solid signs of the zodiac, "Looper" is a solid movie from start to finish.

Gemini: Sin City

The third sign of the zodiac, Gemini is known for being multifaceted and flexible. Those born between May 21 and June 20 are known for having many different interests, for learning things quickly, and, on the less admirable side, for occasionally sticking their noses where they don't belong. Never satisfied to sit in one place for too long, Geminis are constantly leaping to the next point of interest, even if that's somewhere they might not belong.

For these reasons, Robert Rodriguez's noir masterpiece "Sin City" seems like a great fit for the air sign. Willis appeared in the film as Detective John Hartigan, the lead protagonist of one of the film's numerous vignettes. As one of the first people to view the now-mythical test footage that got the film greenlit, the star power of Willis helped get it made when he signed on early.

Based on the famed comics by Frank Miller, "Sin City" is an anthology film, leaping between different short stories that overlap in broad, thematic ways. This format maps quite well onto the adventurous and quick-moving nature of Gemini, and the movie's ventures into dark and dangerous territory (like, it's really violent) is reflective of the air sign's own tendencies to get into trouble.

It's true that Geminis are also known for their sense of humor, which is something the gritty world of "Sin City" sometimes lacks. However, Rodriguez's comic adaptation remains a good match for the air sign, especially in the scope of Willis' career.

Cancer: The Sixth Sense

Represented by the crab, Cancer rules the zodiac from June 21 to July 22. The water sign is known for its closely-guarded nature — a hard shell that protects a softer, more nuanced interior. Cancers are highly sensitive people, aware of even the slightest changes in mood and prone to powerful emotional responses (though they rarely show them to the outside world). Artistic, imaginative, and empathic, Cancer is an excellent fit for one of the most beloved Bruce Willis films, "The Sixth Sense."

Directed by M. Night Shyamalan, "Sixth Sense" tells the story of a boy who can see dead people and the psychologist (Willis) who tries to help him navigate that ability. You almost surely know the twist already (every Shyamalan movie has to have one, after all); suffice it to say, "The Sixth Sense" is a layered and complex movie that deals with serious themes of life, death, and what it means to be human.

Just as Cancers tend to protect their true feelings from the world, "The Sixth Sense" keeps its true nature secret for music of its runtime. It's also a story that deals heavily with the idea of human connectedness and spiritual intuition — things Cancers consider constantly. Not everyone who watches "The Sixth Sense" will "get it," and not everyone who meets a Cancer will get to see their true self. But for those who do, the payoff is immense.

Leo: Armageddon

Come on, you knew the Michael Bay movie was going to be the Leo.

"Armageddon" is a movie about going into space and blowing up an asteroid that's threatening to demolish Earth — a story that demands only marginally more attention than those who wear the second fire sign of the zodiac. Ruling from July 23 to August 22, Leo is represented by the lion and comes with everything that entails: A huge ego, a need for attention, and permanent status as the lovable life of the party. Leos demand big stages and bright spotlights, but they also fill them, exuding the sort of bright energy that every party and friend group needs. At times, they can be a little too much (okay, a lot too much), but a night out with a Leo is almost always a fun time.

Michael Bay's movies are rarely much for emotional complexity, nuance, or quiet moments. They're more about, you know, the explosions. "Armageddon" is perhaps the purest example of the director's work, embodying both the good and bad of his distinct style. There are tons of seat-shaking action set pieces and IMAX-appropriate special effects, and that's most of the appeal. Just like how Leos love luxury, Michael Bay loves big budgets and bombastic blockbusters. Plus, if there's any movie that deserves to be paired with a fire sign, it's probably the one with all the fire.

Virgo: The Kid

Virgo is the second Earth sign of the zodiac, ruling from August 23 to September 22. Order, peace, cleanliness, and loyalty are some of the core Virgo traits, and it's generally viewed as one of the most well-adjusted and agreeable signs. So what better Bruce Willis film to pair with it than a family-friendly Disney movie?

"The Kid" isn't necessarily one of Willis' best films, but it holds a notable place in his filmography. Every bankable star has to eventually lead a touching tale about love, family, and personal growth, after all, and while "The Kid" is far from the greatest entry in that genre, it has merit. It's a simple story about a man who's forced to contend with the decisions he's made in life, and who ultimately makes changes to move toward a happier, more fulfilling existence. Like any good family film, it's clean, well made, and easy to watch — a great mirror to the Virgo persona on screen.

Libra: Moonrise Kingdom

Like Virgo, the air sign Libra prioritizes peace and harmony. However, it's less focused on order and work and more on fairness and openness. Born between September 23 and October 22, Libras tend to love the outdoors, where they can fully embrace the beauty of the natural world. They're gentle, kind, and occasionally quirky people, possessing a blend of justice and childlike wonder.

Wes Anderson's "Moonrise Kingdom," which paired Bruce Willis alongside the likes of Edward Norton, Bill Murray, Frances McDormand, Tilda Swinton, Jason Schwartzman, and Bob Balaban, is a great fit for the sign of Libra. A charming and lovely tale about childhood and human connection in the great outdoors, the film carries the same kind of energy that makes Libras so warm. Watching "Moonrise Kingdom" is like journeying to a fantasy land — one that isn't so far off from the real world (Libras are still very connected to reality, of course), but which embraces a purer and more wholesome attitude than most other films.

Libra represents harmony, and there's nothing more harmonious than a touching story of young love surrounded by gorgeous nature. There are trials and tribulations throughout "Moonrise Kingdom" to be sure, but everything works out all right in the end. The scales are balanced, so to speak — something that should make all Libras quite content.

Scorpio: 12 Monkeys

Just as the water sign Scorpio can be confusing to comprehend, so too is the Terry Gilliam sci-fi cult classic "12 Monkeys," a frequently baffling but thoroughly rewarding film to watch. Scorpio rules the zodiac from October 23 to November 21, and those who wear the sign tend to be bold, intense, and fiercely themselves. Scorpios also have a reputation for treachery, and while that's far from the whole truth, it's fair to say that the water sign is more naturally predisposed to keeping secrets and changing sides than most.

In "12 Monkeys," Willis plays James Cole, a man from a near-future Earth where most of humanity has been wiped out by a deadly contagion. Cole is a prisoner, but he's selected as a candidate for a risky time travel operation meant to unearth the truth of the virus outbreak and potentially help stop it. Brad Pitt co-stars as an idiosyncratic man who Cole meets at various points throughout his travels.

At times, "12 Monkeys" is deadly serious, painting a picture of the post-apocalypse that's as grim as it is stylish. But it's also a bizarre science fiction adventure, loaded with discomforting acting and intentionally perplexing plotlines. Just like a Scorpio, it's hard to tell where "12 Monkeys" will go next. It always has another surprise in store, and even after a full viewing, it may take you some serious time to understand it.

Sagittarius: Pulp Fiction

The final fire sign of the zodiac, Sagittarius rules from November 22 to December 21 and is known for its spirited, globetrotting nature. Those who hold Sagittarius as their sun sign tend to have great senses of humor, intense passions, and a love of travel. They're friendly and adventurous, but they can be a bit overbearing and loud at times as well. At its best, though, Sagittarius embodies both the spirit of adventure and a sense of simple fun.

In the grand pantheon that is the filmography of Bruce Willis, there is perhaps no film as highly acclaimed or heavily discussed as Quentin Tarantino's "Pulp Fiction." And as it happens, the film is also a great match for the sign of Sagittarius. "Pulp Fiction" is a difficult movie to pin down because it features elements from so many different genres. There's underworld action and lots of personal drama, but there's also sharp comedy. If you hang out with a Sagittarius, there's a good chance you'll laugh and contemplate life within the same few minutes, and that's the exact experience you get by watching "Pulp Fiction."

Additionally, the scattered anthology structure of "Pulp Fiction" embodies the Sagittarius impulse to travel and see many different things. It's a movie that contains multitudes within its various storylines, which is exactly the kind of adventure this fire sign loves to go on.

Capricorn: Red

Those born between December 22 and January 19 wear Capricorn as their Sun sign. Known for being responsible, dutiful, and grounded, the earth sign can also suffer from fits of pessimism. Overall, though, it's a stable sign that is always prepared — arguably, a little too prepared at times.

Is it too on-the-nose to pair the grumpy old man sign with Bruce Willis' most iconic grumpy old man movie? Maybe, but we're going to do it anyway. "Red" stands for "retired, extremely dangerous" in both the movie and the comics it's based on, and that could honestly be a personality description for a lot of Capricorns. In the film, Willis plays Frank Moses, a former CIA operative who gets wrapped up in a dangerous scheme and teams up with some of his old colleagues. The rest of the star-studded cast includes folks like Morgan Freeman, John Malkovich, Helen Mirren, and Brian Cox.

Just as Capricorn is a solid and dependable star sign, "Red" is a solid and dependable movie, with plenty of action, comedy, and drama peppered through to keep things fresh and entertaining. It has a great ensemble with spectacular chemistry, and the various retired agents who fill its ranks fit quite well under the waving flag of Capricorn. They'll get the job done, no matter what it is, but they'll also complain while doing it.

Aquarius: Unbreakable

The air sign Aquarius (January 20 to February 18) is reputed to be the most humanitarian of all the zodiac signs. It's a symbol for protest marches, activism, and all bold forms of independent thought. Aquarians can be a bit overzealous, but that's just a result of their passion and fierce self-reliance. They're strong, driven, and fueled by action.

What better film to represent such a sign than a superhero movie? Directed by M. Night Shyamalan, 2000's "Unbreakable" stars Willis as David Dunn, a seemingly ordinary man who discovers that he possesses superhuman strength and other special abilities after surviving a brutal train accident. "Unbreakable" would eventually spawn a trilogy of films from Shyamalan that include "Split" and "Glass," but the first is arguably the best of the three.

The whole story of "Unbreakable" is about a man learning how to be a hero. It's not just about using his powers; it's about recognizing when and how to help the world at large. That's a journey very close to the core mission of Aquarius, and just like those who wear the sign, "Unbreakable" has some surprises in store for first-time viewers. David Dunn grapples with what it means to use your talents and life for the greatest good, making him an icon for the Aquarius cause.

Pisces: The Fifth Element

Let's not make this more complicated than it needs to be: Pisces is an endearingly odd and fanciful sign, and "The Fifth Element" is an endearingly odd and fanciful movie.

Ruling from February 19 to March 20, Pisces closes out the zodiac with a combination of spiritual intuition, sage wisdom, and childlike glee. Those who wear the water sign tend to be naturally artistic and prone to flights of fancy, vanishing into worlds all their own and bringing strikingly unique perspectives to the people around them. They can be seen as weird, and that's not really wrong, but there's a lot more depth to the mind of a Pisces than most people will ever know.

With all that in mind, it would be poor form not to match Pisces with Luc Besson's "The Fifth Element," a film that centers on a childlike woman who operates beyond typical human behavior. In fact, nearly every character in the movie save for Bruce Willis' Korben Dallas operates beyond typical human behavior. "The Fifth Element" is a rainbow hodgepodge of wacky performances, ancient prophecies, alien monsters, dance numbers, romance, and bizarre costumes. It might not be a perfect representation of what goes on within a Pisces' brain, but it's close.
