To relax and spend some quality time with friends, the 67-year-old Pulp Fiction star wore a white Henley shirt and lightweight jeans, along with a pair of New Balance trainers.

Eight months ago, the family of the screen icon told fans in a social media post that Willis has been diagnosed with aphasia – a brain condition that affects his understanding of language – and that he will subsequently be retiring from acting.

Stallone, 76, who starred alongside Willis in The Expendables and its sequel, told The Hollywood Reporter earlier this month: “Bruce is going through some really, really difficult times. So he was kind of incommunicado. this is killing me It is so sad.’

A source told Page Six in March that Willis was having cognitive problems on the set of his recent films and couldn’t remember his lines.

Bruce Willis was struggling with cognitive issues on the set of his final films and couldn’t remember his lines before his family stepped in “to take care of him,” a source told Page Six.

In 2020, rumors began to spread after the retired actor started shooting mostly B action movies.

The source revealed Willis had to use “earphones” to hear things so they could provide him with the lines.

“It was getting harder and harder to get him on screen,” added the source. “It became very obvious that he was struggling, so they used body doubles, not just for action [sequences]but to maximize his screen time.’

The source said the star’s diagnosis is an open secret in Hollywood. “He had cognitive issues, they all knew Bruce had issues.

“Everyone knew it, the cast and the crew. His family stepped in, they moved in to take care of him.’
