Actor Bruce Willis Decided to End His Career Due to Diagnosed Aphasia
OREANDA-NEWS American actor Bruce Willis will end his career due to health problems. His ex-wife Demi Moore reported this on her Instagram account (a social network banned in the Russian Federation; owned by Meta Corporation, which is recognized as extremist in the Russia).
The actress published a joint statement on behalf of the entire family of Willis, which says that he decided to end his acting career because of diagnosed aphasia. This neurological disorder leads to speech disorders, and in some cases affects a person's ability to read, write and understand other people's words. A specific treatment for this disease has not yet been developed, but classes with a speech therapist and a neurologist give a chance for recovery.
«This is a difficult time for our family, and we are grateful for your love, compassion and support. We are experiencing this as a strong unit of society and wanted to inform his fans, because we know how much he means to you, as you do to him», Demi Moore stressed.
Variety media has contacted the actor for comment. His representatives said that the star currently has no additional statements other than those published by his family.
Since the beginning of 2022, publications have begun to appear in a number of media outlets that 67-year-old Bruce Willis suffers from dementia and plans to end his career. The British tabloid OK! was one of the first to write about it. The article claimed that the artist's health problems began two years ago. It was also noted that it was because of dementia that the actor decided to sell all the real estate in New York and spend more time with his family, who lives in Los Angeles. According to the source of the publication, his wife, model Emma Hemming, tried to bring Willis closer to his ex-wife Moore and their children, because «she knew that he was fading away».
