In a joint statement made by the Hollywood stars family, Bruce Willis will step away from his longtime acting career following a medical diagnosis. After being diagnosed with Aphasia which, according to his family, is affecting the stars cognitive ability, the 67-year-old has made the decision to bring his acting career to an end.

Bruce Willis’ daughter Rumer used her Instagram profile as a platform to release the joint family statement on his behalf.

“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.”

With a picture of the Die Hard star, the caption continued to read, “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.”

Aphasia is typically a symptom that is related to a disturbance in the language functions such as speaking, reading, writing, affecting the ability to communicate. It can be temporary or permanent and is usually caused by some kind of injury or damage to the language centers of the brain. Generally it occurs after a stroke or head injury but can also be a developing issue, happening gradually by a disease or a slow growing tumour that may cause degenerative damage.

Rumors floated early in 2021 that Willis was experiencing early onset memory loss, with his wife Emma expressing in an interview just months later that “when there’s good there’s also bad, and you have to be able to sort of navigate through that.”
According to a source close to Bruce, revealed on American TV show Extra, his symptoms have been no term, going on for a long time.

GP Dr Ginni Mansberg has said, “For some people, they can hear and they can understand but they just can’t express themselves, while other people can’t understand. It’s very different for different people, but what we do know is that the treatment options are a little bit grim.”

Bruce Willis began his career in the 70s on the Off-Broadway stage before transitioning to film, where he soon became a household name, gaining recognition as an action hero as John McClane in the Die Hard franchise. He has built over a 250 million dollar fortune and stared in over 100 films, including Armageddon, Look Who’s Talking, The Sixth Sense, and Pulp Fiction. The cast of Pulp Fiction reunited on stage at the recent Oscars, where Willis was noticeably absent.

The news of the Hollywood stars health diagnosis ultimately forcing him to step away from his career is a devastating blow not just to him and his family, but his devoted fans. It remains to be seen if the actor may recover and return to his craft, but fans will get more opportunity to see him on the big screen this year in new action thriller set to be released throughout 2022.

In a statement shared with NBC News by producer Randall Emmett, he praised the acting great, describing Willis as a “terrific actor”. Emmett worked alongside Willis on over 20 films. “I fully support Bruce and his family during this challenging time and admire him for his courage in battling thus incredibly difficult medical condition.”

Willis’ legacy is as solid as concrete, with his career expending decades. Even though his future in acting has come to an end, one thing is for sure, his fans may miss seeing him in new and trilling action roles, but his cult classics will continue to be enjoyed long into the future.
