    A lawyer representing actor Bruce Willis has insisted that the star “wanted to work” in the years after it allegedly became apparent to people around him in Hollywood that he was struggling with aphasia, a cognitive disorder that has affected his ability to understand and express speech. “My client continued working after his medical diagnosis because he wanted to work,” attorney Martin Singer said in response to a new Los Angeles Times report about “wheeler-dealer” producer Randall Emmett. The producer is known for cranking out “low-budget, high-testosterone, assault-gun-and-explosions films” headlined by past-their-prime older white male stars such as Willis, Sylvester Stallone and Mel Gibson. The report alleges that Emmett paid Willis millions to churn out five low-budget action films even after observing the “Die Hard” actor in September 2020 struggle on the set of the movie, “Midnight in the Switchgrass.” Seven crew members told the Times that Emmett, directing the movie, and his colleagues tried to persuade Bruce Willis to kick open a door. During the late-night shoot, someone coached Willis through an earpiece, a stunt coordinator “gently” attempted to...

Non-traumatic brain injuries that occur after strokes, infections, or a lack of oxygen can also cause aphasia.   'My own immune system attacked my brain because it misidentified it as invading germs. The danger was always inside me, lurking just under my scalp,' she wrote. 'I became severely ill one day after I stood up at the end of my workday and realized I had forgotten how to walk.'

    Rich Fury/Getty Images The Razzies have rescinded their award for Bruce Willis following public news of his aphasia diagnosis. The satirical awards show, which hands out honors to the worst movies of the year, had recently given Willis his own category titled “Worst Performance by Bruce Willis in a 2021 Movie.” “After much thought and consideration, the Razzies have made the decision to rescind the Razzie Award given to Bruce Willis, due to his recently disclosed diagnosis,” co-founders John J.

    Bruce Willis’ cognitive decline was evident for years to directors and crew on film sets, and he was aided by a protective entourage of handlers, as he cranked out 22 low-budget films in four years, sometimes earning up to $2 million for only two days’ work, according to a new report in the Los Angeles Times. More than a dozen filmmakers told The Times they were concerned about the “Die Hard” icon’s health, as they saw the 67-year-old struggle with his lines and memory, seemed unaware of his surroundings and even, on one film set in January 2020, fired a gun on the wrong cue, before his co-star could duck. The Times’ report was published hours after Willis’ family issued a statement Wednesday, saying that the “Pulp Fiction” star was stepping away from his long and beloved film career because he had “recently been diagnosed with aphasia, which is impacting his cognitive abilities.” Aphasia can rob a person of the ability to communicate through speech or to write or understand language, according to the Mayo Clinic. If Willis was struggling...
    Living with aphasia has been compared to living in a country where you don’t speak the language. Gestures, sign language or other forms of communication may not be much help. And the people who want to help you struggle to understand. “You know what things are. You are the person you were — but others don’t know that,” said Lyn Turkstra, a professor of speech-language pathology and neuroscience at McMaster University in Canada. “All of a sudden, you can’t express thoughts and feelings as you once could, and if it is progressive, you’re feeling it slip away gradually.” Bruce Willis’ retirement from a four-decade acting career after an aphasia diagnosis has put the little-known disorder in the spotlight. People living with aphasia, as well as their caregivers and advocates for treatment of the disorder, say they hope his diagnosis will help reduce the stigma of invisible illnesses and lead to better understanding of a frustrating, isolating condition that affects about 2 million Americans. Willis’ diagnosis has already sparked a surge of interest in the condition, said Darlene...

    Salman Azhar, MD, is Director of Stroke Services at Lenox Hill Hospital, Northwell Health  The family of legendary actor Bruce Willis, 67, announced that he is retiring due to cognitive issues associated with a medical condition called aphasia. Aphasia is a disorder that impairs a person's ability to express and understand thoughts, follow commands and communicate.  But it is primarily a language disorder, in that it is less related to someone's ability to pronounce words or articulate sounds. Someone suffering from aphasia may appear to speak clearly, while the meaning of their words are incoherent. They may even have trouble communicating through writing or sign language. It is also important to understand that there is a major difference between ordinary episodes of difficulty remembering a person's name and a more serious medical problem. When people are fatigued or multitasking, they may forget names of friends or restaurants or even where they left their keys. But usually a healthy person is able to eventually recall the word or thought that they were seeking. Aphasia is very different. Someone suffering from this...
