At 67, the Die Hard star struggles to communicate, reveals her daughter Rumer Willis.
John McClane will not return to the cinema in the guise of Bruce Willis, who decided to end his career at the age of 67. His wife Emma Heming Willis, as well as his ex-wife Demi Moore and his daughters Rumer, Scout, Tallulah, Mabel and Evelyn wrote a message to the public to announce that he suffered from aphasia, a language disorder unfortunately not compatible with an acting career.
“To all of Bruce’s amazing supporters, as a family we wanted to let you know that our dear Bruce has some health issues, reveals Rumer Willis on his Instagram account about his father, revealed to the general public by the Clair de Lune series in the late 1980s. He was recently diagnosed with aphasia, which is impacting his cognitive abilities. As a result and after thinking about it, Bruce stops his career which meant so much to him.
These are very difficult times for our family and we appreciate your messages of love, compassion and support. We’re going through it all as one family, and we wanted to tell the fans about it, because we know how much you care about him, how much he cares about you.
As Bruce always says: ‘Enjoy life’, so together we try to do it simply.
Emma, Demi, Rumer, Scout, Tallulah, Mabel, & Evelyn
The 10 best roles of Bruce Willis
A shock for the many fans of the star of Die Hard, Pulp Fiction, The Fifth Element and the trilogy Unbreakable by M. Night Shyamalan, popular with several generations of viewers. A rumor had been circulating for some time around his poor health, and it is sadly confirmed today by those close to Bruce Willis. An announcement that makes all the more bitter his nomination for the Razzie Awards this weekend: the anti-ceremony of the Oscars created a special category for the comedian, thus mocking his multiple action DTVs recently shot, after a prolific career from the 1980s to 2000s, which made him one of the most beloved Hollywood comedians of his generation. The announcement of his early retirement following the diagnosis of this serious illness has already reacted to thousands of fans on social networks.
Thank you for these moments, Bruce Willis.
