Hollywood icon Bruce Willis was recently spotted out and about in Los Angeles, sparking concern among fans due to his battle with aphasia. The actor, who announced his retirement from the industry in March of last year, has been visibly struggling with the condition, which has only worsened over time.
A source close to the Willis family revealed that the actor's condition had worsened since the beginning of the year, causing the family to gather and spend more time together. Fans have expressed their worries upon seeing recent photographs of Willis, where he appears tired and disheveled, leading to speculations that his condition may have worsened even more.
The Last Collaboration
In November, Willis reunited with his former co-star John Travolta in the action film "Paradise City". The film, which marks Willis and Travolta's first major collaboration since they starred in Quentin Tarantino's 1994 classic "Pulp Fiction", is one of the last Willis completed before announcing his retirement from acting.
Willis has had a storied career spanning over three decades, during which he has become one of the most recognizable and respected actors in the industry. Fans, who have watched him grow and evolve on the big screen, are understandably worried about the state of his health.
Bruce's family revealed he would be retiring from acting
'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,' they wrote.
'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,' they added. 'As Bruce always says, "Live it up" and together we plan to do just that.'
By the way, Bruce married Emma in 2009, and together they have younger daughters Mabel and Evelyn. On the other hand, he and Moore were married from 1987 to 2000 and have daughters Rumer, Tallulah, and Scout together.
