“As a result of this and with much consideration Bruce is stepping away from the career that has meant so much to him,” the actor’s daughter Rumer Willis wrote in an Instagram post also signed by her siblings, the actor’s wife, Emma, and his former wife, Demi Moore.
According to those who have worked with Bruce on his recent films, the actor has been experiencing health woes in recent years.
Nearly two dozen people who were on set with the actor expressed concern about the actor’s well-being, according to The Times.
It was reported an actor who travelled with Bruce would feed the star his lines through an earpiece, known in the industry as an “earwig,” according to several sources.
Most action scenes, particularly those that involved choreographed gunfire, were filmed using a body double as a substitute for Bruce.
Meanwhile, Cybill was at Race To Erase MS because her daughter Clementine has the disease, she said.
“I remember the day when I went with my daughter Clementine up to the University of California San Francisco, to one of the experts on multiple sclerosis, and it was a positive,” she shared.
“She’s done great though. I couldn’t ask for more. My darling Clementine.”
