A tough time for Walter_B. However, I wouldn’t peg this man as a quitter!
PREVIOUSLY: After recent online rumors about Bruce Willis’ current health issues, it appears that the actor has retired from movies. A post by ex-wife Demi Moore on social media said the following:
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. As a result of this and with much consideration Bruce is stepping away from the career that has meant so much to him.
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.
Emma, Demi, Rumer, Scout, Tallulah, Mabel, & Evelyn
Willis has been prolific in his movie appearances of late, so there’ll be at least another half a dozen movies that come out after his retirement.
