Bruce Wills is stepping away from acting after a diagnosis of aphasia that causes the loss of the ability to understand or express speech.

Aphasia typically occurs after a stroke or head injury, but can also develop gradually due to a slow-growing brain tumour or a disease that causes degenerative damage. It is treated primarily with speech therapy and learning non-verbal means of communication.

Willis’s family members posted a statement on Instagram announcing his diagnosis

“As a result of this and with much consideration, Bruce is stepping away from the career that has meant so much to him,” read the statement signed by Willis’s wife, Emma Heming Willis, his ex-wife Demi Moore, and his five children, Rumer, Scout, Tallulah, Mabel and Evelyn.

The 67-year-old actor’s family said Willis was recently diagnosed  and that it’s impacting his cognitive abilities.
