Stop Acting, Start Living by Bernard Hiller
Available on Amazon

Stop Acting – Start Living” is 35 years of performing and teaching experience. Acting teacher and success coach, Bernard Hiller has worked with Jeff Goldblum, LL Cool J, Billy Crystal, Lionel Richie, Emma Robert, Jamie Dornan and Jennifer Garner– among many others. Bernard was Cameron Diaz first acting teacher, and coached her for her first audition in “The Mask” with Jim Carrey, which launched her career. As an actor he worked with George Clooney and Michelle Pfeiffer. 

His revolutionary techniques have changed the careers of artist around the world. There has never been a book available that takes the acting techniques of a Hollywood star-maker, and also teaches people how to become stars in their lives, relationships and career. THIS WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE! Bernard is the only coach who combines acting technique, life coaching and success training in an entirely different and unique way. Leonardo DiCaprio and other Hollywood stars recommend him as the premier acting teacher in town.

We are excited to announce, that “Stop Acting – Start Living” is currently translated into Spanish –  DEJA DE ACTUAR, EMPIEZA A VIVIR and later in the year into Russian!
