Bruce Willis enjoys a day out with friends after aphasia diagnosis



Bruce Willis was seen enjoying his afternoon with good company while out and about in Malibu, Calif. this week.

The rare sighting occurred just two months after the action star was diagnosed with aphasia, marked by difficulty with speaking and comprehending language.

The “Die Hard” star, 67, was seen casually strolling through the SoCal city after grabbing a meal with friends.

Willis kept his look simple in blue jeans, a long-sleeved shirt and a blue baseball cap with the letters “B” stitched on the front.

The silver screen vet appears to be in great spirits as of late, as wife Emma Heming shared video of the actor as he played a game of backyard basketball with friends Tuesday.

“I see you BeeDub,” Heming, captioned a video on her Instagram Story of him shooting the ball through the net.

Heming, along with her husband’s ex-wife, Demi Moore, and their kids, Rumer, 33, Scout, 30, and Tallulah, 28, released a joint statement in March revealing Willis was retiring due to his health woes.

“To Bruce’s amazing supporters, 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 on Instagram.

“As a result of this and with much consideration Bruce is stepping away from the career that has meant so much to him,” they continued. “As Bruce always says, ‘Live it up’ and together we plan to do just that.”
