The entertainment world was left in shock when actor Bruce Willis announced his retirement from acting due to a recent diagnosis of aphasia.

In a joint statement shared on social media by his family, it was revealed that Bruce’s cognitive abilities have been affected by this condition, making it difficult for him to perceive or formulate words.

Alongside a photo of her father, she wrote, “Our dear Bruce has been facing some health concerns and has recently been diagnosed with aphasia, which is affecting his cognitive abilities.”

Finding strength in their close-knit family, Rumer reassured fans, saying, “Live it up, as Bruce always says, and that’s exactly what we’re going to do together.”
