Hollywood Stars Sharing Support For Bruce Willis After He Shared Diagnosis


Bruce Willis recently shared that he was diagnosed with aphasia, a condition that affects cognitive abilities. Due to his diagnosis, the 67-year-old has decided to retire from acting. Bruce and his family shared a statement about his diagnosis and retirement. While he definitely has the support of his family, his fellow Hollywood stars are also sharing their encouragement.

Bruce’s statement from his wife Emma Heming Willis, ex-wife Demi Moore and daughters Rumer, Scout, Tallulah, Mabel, and Evelyn read, “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.” They added that it has been challenging but they are appreciative of all of the love and support.

Many stars commented on the family’s posts and shared their support. It seems that anyone who worked with Bruce over the years only has nice things to say. Aphasia generally happens after a stroke or head injury but can also come on slowly from a disease or brain tumor. It affects one’s ability to write, speak, and understand things, both written and verbal. It can really affect how you communicate which is likely the reason that Bruce has to step away from acting.
