Bruce Willis' family announced that Bruce Willis will be retiring from acting after being diagnosed by aphasia.


Bruce Willis’ family announced that the actor will step down from his acting career after being diagnosed with aphasia. It is a disorder that impairs a person’s ability to communicate due to brain damage.

The announcement came from Willis’ daughter, Rumer Willis, and his ex-wife, Demi Moore, who both posted a photo of him on Instagram with a lengthy caption. “To Bruce’s amazing supporters, as a family, we wanted to share that our beloved Bruce has been experiencing some health issues and has recently been diagnosed with aphasia, which is impacting his cognitive abilities,” it says.

“As a result of this and with much consideration Bruce is stepping away from the career that has meant so much to him,” the statement continues. 

“This is a really challenging time for our family and we are so appreciative of your continued love, compassion and support. We are moving through this as a strong family unit, and wanted to bring his fans in because we know how much he means to you, as you do to him. As Bruce always says, ‘Live it up’ and together we plan to do just that.”

Following the news, several actors offered their support and love to Willis and his family. One of them is actress Jamie Lee Curtis who commented on the post “Grace and guts! Love to you all!”. Jaimie Alexander also extended her support.

It wasn't until he landed a role in the TV series Moonlighting (1985-1989) that he became a prominent name in Hollywood.
