[Los Angeles 30th Reuters]–The family revealed on the 30th that American actor Bruce Willis (67), who is known for action movies such as the “Die Hard” series, was diagnosed with aphasia and retired from acting.
“We will overcome this problem as a strong family,” he said in a statement. Willis divorced actress Demi Moore in 2000 and is now married to actress Emma Heming and has a total of five children.
Willis gained popularity in the 1980s comedy drama “Moonlighting” and has appeared in about 100 works for 40 years. She has also been highly acclaimed for “Pulp Fiction” and “Six Sense,” and has won two Golden Globe Awards and an Emmy Award.
According to experts, aphasia is often caused by a stroke, but trauma can also be a factor. Symptoms vary and affect conversation, comprehension, and reading comprehension. Some can be treated with speech therapy.
