“As a family, we wanted to share with Bruce’s great supporters that our beloved Bruce has some health problems and has recently been diagnosed with aphasia that marks his cognitive abilities,” the family said. “Bruce leaves his career, which meant a lot to him,” the post continues on the instagram profile of the actor ‘s daughter Rumer Willis.

Aphasia is caused by brain damage, such as a stroke, head injury, or cancer. It occurs in different forms depending on which part of the brain has been damaged, and manifests itself in various ways, from mild speech disorders to complete loss of speech and comprehension.

Bruce Willis became famous for his roles of tough action heroes, and later appeared in more serious psychological thrillers or dramas. In 1988, he first appeared in the iconic role of John McClane in the blockbuster The Death Trap, which was one of the most successful films in the barracks that year. He later returned to this character in four sequels. His other legendary films include The Last Scout, The Fifth Element, Armageddon and The Sixth Sense.

After the beginning of the new millennium, however, his films ceased to be such a great commercial success, and since 2015 he has acted mainly in low-budget films, which have usually not met with very good reviews from critics.

The organizers of the American film anti-prize Zlatá raspina have even created a special category for Willis this year, as he appeared in eight mostly low-budget films last year, which did not receive more than 20 percent from film critics on the specialized server Rotten Tomatoes.

However, Willis has a large number of devoted fans around the world, and the films in which he appeared have earned over five billion dollars (110 billion crowns) worldwide. He has won a Golden Globe and two Emmy Awards in his career, and has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

According to, there are now eight films in post-production in which he appeared. The other two are completed but not yet listed.

In addition to acting, he also devoted himself to music. In the late 80’s he released two rock albums as a singer. However, his music career was not nearly as successful as his acting.
