There were probably several actors who were awarded the U.S. Distinguished Flying Cross during World War Two, but the most famous was James Stewart, who was awarded the decoration twice for bravery in aerial combat.

Stewart retired as a Brigadier General in the Air Force reserve; President Reagan subsequently promoted him to Major General.

As far as I know, there is no list for recipients of the Bronze Star Medal from WWII. The reason for this is, unlike higher awards that are awarded strictly for combat actions (Medal of Honor, Distinguished Service Cross, Distinguished Service Medal- which have lists of recipients) the Bronze Star Medal may be awarded also for non-combat reasons. Because of this, the list would be extraordinarily long, particularly for a period of war.
