Bruce Willis is stepping away from his acting career after being diagnosed with aphasia. Aphasia is a condition that impedes a person’s ability to speak and write.
The actor’s family, including his wife Emma Heming-Willis and ex-wife Demi Moore, announced his condition on Instagram on Wednesday March 30.
Aphasia is “impacting his cognitive abilities”, the statement said.
Willis, 67, is famous for playing John McClane in the “Die Hard” films, which made him a star.
“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.” his family wrote in a joint statement

Since then, his films including “The Sixth Sense”, “Armageddon” and “Pulp Fiction” have grossed more than $5bn worldwide, according to Variety. He’s been nominated for five Golden Globes, winning one for “Moonlighting”, and three Emmys, winning two.
Bruce Willis has five daughters, three with Ms Moore and two with Ms Heming-Willis.
