“Stop Acting Start Living” is the culmination of 35 years of performing and teaching experience. Acting teacher and success coach Bernard Hiller has worked with Jeff Goldblum, LL Cool J, Billy Crystal, Chace Crawford, Michelle Pfeiffer and Emilio Rivera among many others. Bernard discovered Cameron Diaz and coached her for her first big audition for “The Mask” with Jim Carrey, which launched her career. His techniques have helped change the course of lives and careers. There has never been a book available that takes the acting techniques of a Hollywood star-maker, and teaches average people how to become stars in their lives, relationships and careers. Bernard is the only coach who combines acting technique, life coaching and success training in an entirely different and unique way. Because of that Leonardo DiCaprio and other stars recommend him as the premier acting teacher in town.
Bernard Hiller has been teaching in Hollywood for the past 30 years and he is the only acting teacher who has successfully taught in 14 countries around the world. Bernard’s teachings are legendary. He has worked with Jeff Goldblum, LL Cool J, Billy Crystal, Chace Crawford, Michelle Pfeiffer among many others. Bernard discovered Cameron Diaz and coached her for her first big audition for “The Mask” with Jim Carrey, which launched her career.
I was inspired to become an actor when I was very young, but it was the story I heard when I was six years old, from a man from Salonika, Greece, that showed me the power of acting.
He told me that when he was young, the Nazis occupied Greece, and rounded up all the Jews in Salonika. As he was running for his life, soldiers rounded a corner and spotted him in the middle of the street. The soldiers saw him and he saw them. He didn’t know what to do or where to go, because there was nowhere to hide.
