Often criticized for his recent career choices, Bruce Willis announced yesterday that he was retiring. The 67-year-old actor indeed suffers from aphasia, a disease that affects the brain and causes language disorders. The reactions of all Hollywood to this sad news are linked on social networks.

Some, like director M. Night Shyamalan who directed the comedian in Sixth Sense, Unbreakable, Split and Glass, thank him for rocking them.

All my love and respect to my big brother Bruce Willis. I know that his wonderful family surrounds him with their support and strength. He will always be the hero that was on my bedroom poster when I was a kid..”

For her part, Sarah Paulson, who gave the actor a reply in Glass, commented on the Instagram post in which Rumer Willis announced the retirement of her father: “Bruce has been an incredible playing partner. He’s the sweetest, sweetest and most hilarious man. He reigns supreme“.

The director of Die Hard 4 – return to hell, Len Wiseman sends his support to the Willis family under the position of the daughter of the interpreter of John McClane: “Sending love and strength to you, Bruce and your lovely family.

Finally, comedian James Woods thanks Bruce Willis on behalf of the whole world.

“If you love movies, you love Bruce Willis. He epitomized all that is good about ‘entertainment’ for decades. Congratulations to his family who handled this difficult news with dignity and grace. I speak on behalf around the world when I say, ‘We love you, Bruce.

Others make amends and apologize for criticizing the actor’s behavior. This is particularly the case of Kevin Smith who, after directing Top Cops in 2010, called the actor “F*cking D*ck and a Nightmare to Work With” (“A big c… and a nightmare to direct”).

The director says on his twitter account : “Long before the Top Cops affair, I was a big fan of Bruce Willis. This announcement is heartbreaking. He loved acting and singing and the loss of all of that must be devastating to him. I feel like an asshole for my petty complaints of 2010. My apologies to Bruce Willis and his family.”

Stallone / Willis

Sylvester Stallone for his part posted a photo of Bruce Willis and himself on his Instagram account along with the message “We have known each other for a long time, I wish the best for you and your wonderful family…

As a reminder, in 2013, Stallone, then in the middle of filming The Expendables 3, had tweeted “Greedy and lazy… the perfect recipe for jeopardizing a career“. An enigmatic message which followed the announcement of the departure of Bruce Willis and the recruitment of Harrison Ford in the big arm team.

Shortly after, The Hollywood Reporter announced that Bruce Willis would have tried to obtain 4 million dollars for 4 days of filming. Stallone offering him “only” 3 million, Willis refused to take over the role of Mr Church. Sylvester Stallone and the production then decided to do without his services.

“Bruce Willis Worst Performance”

For their part, the Razzies Awards, which this year created an entire category devoted to Bruce Willis entitled “Worst performance by Bruce Willis in a film of 2021” (the “prize” went to his performance in the SF film Cosmic Sin , available on Prime Video), apologized:

“The Razzies are truly sorry for Bruce Willis’ medical condition. Perhaps that explains why he wanted to leave with a bang in 2021. Our best wishes to Bruce and his family.” Before specifying a few hours later: “To clarify, we learned of Willis’ diagnosis at the same time as everyone else…this very morning..”

Bruce Willis last appeared on the big screen in 2019 in Glass by M. Night Shyamalan and in Brooklyn Affairs alongside Edward Norton before going direct-to-video.
