You can't deny that Bruce Willis is one of the most popular movie stars that we've ever seen in Hollywood. His classics include "Die Hard," "Looper," "Sixth Sense," and more.

Bruce Willis may be 67 years old, but he has kept up his robust filming schedule recently; he currently has six films in post-production. But it turns out that he's suddenly retiring from his acting career due to a health condition that he was recently diagnosed with.

Bruce Willis Is Retiring from Acting Because of a Medical Condition Called Aphasia

Bruce's family released a statement on Wednesday announcing that he will be taking a step back from acting. He has been diagnosed with aphasia, a condition that causes people to lose their ability to speak or communicate. It often follows a sudden incident like a stroke, major injury, etc., although it hasn't been indicated that Bruce suffered from any of these. It's more common than Parkinson's disease and cerebral palsy, and it affects 2 million people in the U.S.

Bruce's daughter Rumer shared an Instagram post with the message about his retirement.

"To Bruce’s amazing supporters, as a family we wanted to share that our beloved Bruce has been experiencing some health issues and has recently been diagnosed with aphasia, which is impacting his cognitive abilities," the caption said. "As a result of this and 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," she continued. "We are moving through this as a strong family unit, and wanted to bring his fans in because we know how much he means to you, as you do to him."

Demi Moore, his ex-wife with whom he has remained very close, also shared the same picture and caption on her Instagram page. Just one week ago she shared a photo of them together celebrating his birthday.

There hasn't been any other information released about Bruce and his condition, but his fans are waiting patiently for more details.
