Default Bruce Willis is retiring from acting.

“Bruce has been experiencing some health issues and has been recently 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.”




Best of luck to him.

Not being disrespectful but I thought he was kind of out of the business and retired. I guess most never really are.

I had to look up aphasia. Not sure what's going on with him but this seems to happen from strokes, among other things. Haven't heard news from him in a while. Hope he fully recovers.

I love the old BW work. He could still have a career in politics.

I have a family member dealing with aphasia due to to a stroke. There are several ways it can affect you depending what part of the brain is damaged. Some have a hard time comprehending the meaning of words both spoken and written. Some can think clearly but can't find the words to verbalize their thoughts. With "global aphasia" you have difficulty with both. Sometimes it gets better sometimes not.

Oh man this got me. Heck I've been feeling a little foggy myself and had some head trauma a few years back. Might ask the doc.

Feel bad for him but I'll get over this faster than I will Charlie Robison's medically forced retirement.

Sucks. Hate to see anyone go through that. He always struck me as a pretty cool dude.

I remember a while back he was active on some of the 1911 specific gun forums.

Everyone should have such a career and know when to walk away.

Will be fun to watch him b-slap some comedian at the academy awards next year.

X2, had to look it up. Very discouraging to read about this type illness. Good luck to him.

No way- he’s been churning out a high volume of b-grade action flicks for Netflix for a while now.

Hate this for him.

At least BW and his family admit it. The moron in the White House and his family are just letting him destroy America.
