Bruce Willis isn’t going to slow down anytime soon. After being diagnosed with aphasia, a condition that affects the ability to communicate, the actor was captured with his wife Emma Heming Willis, in Los Angeles.
The ‘Sexto Sentido’ star, 67, and Emma, 44, wore casual outfits, combining colors, with the actor sporting a light blue printed shirt on top of light jeans, while his wife opted for a washed-out dark blue top that she paired with a pair of dark jeans.
Emma, who shares her daughters Mabel, 10, and Evelyn, 8, with the actor, wrote a sweet message on social media a few days ago, sharing a hilarious video showing the Hollywood star performing the Drifters’ ‘Under the Boardwalk’ with The Temptations.
“My motto is don’t let fear stop you. Why? Because fear constantly holds me back, which is another reason I fell in love with my husband, fear has never stopped him. I mean, what kind of next-level confidence does it take to sing as a leader with The Temptations?” wrote Emma in the post.
He added: “They can say whatever they want (and boy have they done it) but this guy has always been carried away by his passion and has never let the detractors stop him from anything. And I have a lot of respect, love and admiration for that man because of it. Enjoy this little song that gladdens my heart.”
Bruce was recently diagnosed with aphasia, which can affect the ability to speak, write, and understand language, both verbal and written.
His family revealed the news in a statement on Instagram in March, confirming terrible news for his fans: his retirement from acting.
“To Bruce’s incredible followers, 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,” they wrote at the time. “As a result of this and with great consideration Bruce will walk away from the career that has meant so much to him.”
The family admitted that “it’s a really challenging time” for them, telling fans “we’re so grateful for their continued love, compassion and support.”
Bruce has been seen on multiple occasions away from home with friends, as well as enjoying some family time, after sharing his diagnosis. He was seen leaving the Shutters Hotel in Santa Monica, California, last month after having lunch with friends. That same month, Emma also shared a video of him playing basketball with several friends at his house.
