Bruce Willis’ family said in a joint statement shared on social media that the Die Hard star is quitting his job after being diagnosed with aphasia.
Damage to certain areas of the brain impairs the ability to understand or form words in this disease. Strokes or traumatic damage are the most common causes.
Bruce’s daughter Rumer rushed to Instagram to break the news which has devastated her millions of followers. “We wanted to share with Bruce’s amazing fans as a family that our dear Bruce has been having some health issues and was recently diagnosed with aphasia which was affecting his cognitive abilities,” she said alongside the photo of her father.
“As a result, and after much thought, Bruce decided to leave a career that meant so much to him.”
“We appreciate your continued love, compassion and support at this very difficult time for our family.” We’re treating this as a strong family unit and we wanted to include his fans because we know how much he means to you, just like you do him.
“As Bruce often says, ‘Live your life,’ and that’s what we want to do.”
To say the least, Bruce’s acting career has been impressive. He has appeared in a number of iconic films over the years and has cemented his reputation as one of the greatest actors of all time.
He is originally known for the television sitcom Moonlighting, for which he won an Emmy and a Golden Globe. This versatile actor has proven to Hollywood that he can play any role well.
Armageddon, Pulp Fiction, The Fifth Element, The Last Boy Scout, Twelve Monkeys, The Sixth Sense, Looper, and Moonrise Kingdom are among the films that defined his career.
He’s also dabbled in the world of family comedies. Bruce featured in seven films last year, and three more have already come out this year, none of which have won critical acclaim. Eight additional completed films are scheduled for release in 2022 and 2023.
Most of his recent work has been limited to minor roles in low-budget films, prompting conjecture regarding the reasons for this. While some thought he was just looking for easy money, others felt something was amiss with his health.
“Worst Performance by Bruce Willis in a 2021 Movie,” a category dedicated to Bruce’s recent work, was developed by the “Golden Raspberry Awards,” an annual awards event that honors the worst in film.
Some of Bruce’s coworkers suspected something was amiss with the A-list actor after he was spotted wearing an earpiece on set, according to various media sources and magazines.
Bruce Willis’ retirement fund is safe to say settled, having been one of Hollywood’s highest-paid stars. The actor has a net worth of $250 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth.
Bruce’s family is honored by the public response, according to a source who spoke to US Weekly recently. According to the insider, they have been “truly touched by the sheer outpouring of love and support they’ve received since they shared the news.”
Bruce’s closest family, including his ex and current wife, were apparently well aware of his health situation for some time before deciding to inform the world. The actor’s family felt “relieved” after sharing the diagnosis with the public since it means he can now focus on his health without being distracted by rumors regarding the reasons for his retirement from the big screen.
Following his diagnosis, Bruce was photographed with his 10-year-old daughter Mabel and his wife, Emma Heming Willis, who captioned the photo, “PJS and new Magic Johnson physician, perfection.”
We’ll miss seeing this wonderful actor on screen, but we’re glad he’s getting the care he requires.
