Bruce Willis stars in trailer for 2022 action film A Day to Die

Scout Willis has shared a sweet photo of herself and Bruce Willis following the announcement that he is stepping away from acting due to a health issue.

The news was shared by his family earlier this week, with it said that he had been diagnosed with the condition aphasia – which can affect a person’s cognitive abilities.

It means that the actor, 67, will be taking a step back from his career, though his acting legacy will remain through films such as Die Hard, Pulp Fiction and the Sixth Sense.

There has been an outpouring of support since the news was announced on social media, with his daughter Scout, 30, having opened up about the response that it’s had.

Addressing fans directly, she said: “I am so grateful for your love. I’m so grateful to hear about what my papa means to you. Thank you so much to everyone who reached out.”
