Bruce Willis had the courage to speak openly about the reasons for stopping his career. Indeed, it was not necessarily easy for him to imagine admitting to the whole world that he suffered from aphasia. Just as it was not easy to end his career when he is only 67 years old and one of the greatest actors of his generation. Since March 30, 2022, the day of the public announcement of this decision and the reasons behind it, an unprecedented wave of support has fallen on him and his family. Bruce Willis and his family are happy to see the positive reception from the public and the media. And in all cases, but today more than ever, the actor can count on the 7 women in his life to support him. Objeko tells you what to remember from this tragic but very beautiful story.
Bruce Willis reveals the evil from which he suffers, surrounded by his family
The Hollywood actor has an image of an unshakeable man, a true hero. Difficult then for his fans to imagine that he can face a situation in front of which he is powerless. However, life is such that diseases leave us no choice. Whether we are Bruce Willis or not, we must indeed resolve to the fact that these invisible enemies that are diseases, invite themselves into our lives without warning.
The actor therefore announced to retire because he suffers from aphasia. A neurodegenerative disease which, in time, will cause him to lose his language skills. He will no longer be able to speak, read, or even understand what is said to him. The words will gradually lose their meaning. Under such conditions, it was obviously impossible for him to continue his career. But Bruce Willis could also have chosen not to publicly reveal his illness. And above all, he and his family never imagined how much this announcement would mobilize the public and surround them with love.
It was therefore a shocking announcement that made the relatives and fans of Bruce Willis waver. But this tragic story is also marvelous because it highlights a heartbreaking solidarity. Objeko told you above, the 7 women in the life of the actor are around him to support him like never before. Like our colleagues from the magazine Closer and so many other magazines, it is indeed appropriate to applaud these magnificent women who accompany Bruce Willis in this particularly difficult period. Spotlight on the star’s first wife, Emma Heming. But also on the ex-wife of Bruce Willis, Demi Moore. And obviously, on the 5 daughters of the actor who is retiring.
A wave of love is spreading on the Web
“To the amazing Bruce supporters, as a family we wanted to share that our beloved Bruce has had health issues and was recently diagnosed with aphasia, which is impacting his cognitive abilities. As a result of this and with much thought, Bruce walks away from the career that meant so much to him. This is a truly difficult time for our family and we greatly appreciate your love, compassion and support. We’re going through this as a strong family unit and we wanted to do that to his fans because we know how much he means to you, as you mean to him. As Bruce always says, “Live it up” and together we plan to do it. Love, Emma, Demi, Rumer, Scout, Tallulah, Mabel and Evelyn »so wrote the wife of Bruce Willis on his Instagram account.
The 7 women in the life of Bruce Willis are therefore all united to support the actor in the face of the disease. Aphasia will set in and Emma Heming knows that no one will be able to fight against it. She therefore does not hide that this period is particularly difficult for her husband and for all those who love him. But above all, she affirms loud and clear that with a family united and full of love, Bruce Willis will be able to face this terrible period as best as possible.
One of the daughters of the star and his ex-wife, Scout LaRue, also shared a touching message on her Instagram account. She said of her father that he was brave to share such a personal side of his life to the public. And that she was overwhelmed to realize the support that the whole family received since this announcement. Objeko told you, it’s a story as tragic as wonderful as this one…
