This was the story I read that brought me here, and some of it just sounds a bit off to me, in terms of his agency/"handler"'s involvement: https://www.latimes.com/entertainment-arts/movies/story/2022-03-30/bruce-willis-aphasia-memory-loss-cognitive-disorder Yeah, that’s a pretty grim read. Reminds me of the coverage a while back concerning a visibly exhausted Stan Lee signing autographs for hours on end. I expect it was easy enough to sell Willis on making some money before he retired, whereas their real concern was to wring the last drops of cash out of him before he left their books. 2 hours ago, Simmy said: Looking back at interviews from a few years ago you can sense something wasn't quite right Makes you wonder how gradually this condition has progressed. Would explain why Willis apparently became more unpleasant to work with over time, which people took as arrogance and entitlement, whereas on Die Hard he knew practically all the crew by name. 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
