I know, I know, you don’t come here for movie news and celeb gossip. This case is different. I have always been a fan of Willis. He is one of the only open right wingers in pedowood and he’s made some great movies. And I love movies almost as much as I love guns. so I’m sharing this article fro Stark from over at the other website I write for. Sad news.
A true cinematic great is stepping back from the spotlight for very sad reasons. Bruce Willis is to retire. From Die Hard, through The Last Boy Scout, to The Fifth Element, Armageddon and Looper, Willis has been a cinematic mainstay for most Outposters throughout our movie-going lives.
Willis’ family has announced that the 67-year-old actor is “stepping away” from acting due to health issues.
A few weeks ago the rumor started to circulate that Willis was appearing in a lot of lower quality movies because he was aware that his time in the spotlight was now becoming time-limited due to health issues. He was taking the world to maximize earnings before having to quit.
This was sadly confirmed yesterday with an announcement posted to Instagram by his wife Emma Heming, ex-wife Demi Moore and daughter Rumer. It was signed by the whole family:
“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.”
According to the announcement, Willis has been recently diagnosed with aphasia. This can result from damage or injury to the language parts of the brain. It does get in the way of a person’s ability to communicate, but it generally doesn’t affect intelligence. It can range from mild to severe depending on the damage to the area.
This is impacting his cognitive abilities, limiting his ability to express and understand written and spoken language.
There are at least six projects either completed or in post-production featuring Willis. Of course, we will always have Die Hard. Thanks for the memories, Mr. Willis.
