Bruce Willis Is Retiring

BroBible says Bruce Willis is retiring from acting because he is suffering from a rare brain disorder that affects his ability to communicate. Aphasia is “a language disorder caused by brain damage that affects a person’s ability to communicate.”

Bruce’s family Instagrammed:  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. 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.”

A source tells the NY Post, “He was having cognitive problems, they all knew Bruce was having problems. Everybody knew, the cast and crew. His family has stepped in, they moved in to take care of him. Willis was using earpieces, hearing things, for them to feed him the lines, and it was increasingly difficult to have him on screen. It became very apparent that he was having problems. So they’d use body doubles, not just for action [sequences], but for maximizing his screen

The Daily Mail says Bruce has released 15 movies in the past two years and has eight more coming out.
