Schwarzenegger dedicated some beautiful words to his former colleague Bruce Willis, and also emphasized a particular trait that action heroes have.
When we talk about action movies, a multitude of actors come to mind like Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, or Jean-Claude Van Damme, but also others like Bruce Willis, who have even starred in some dramatic films.
And Arnold Schwarzenegger recently expressed words of encouragement for his friend Bruce Willis, who you will remember above all from the different Die Hard movies.
Schwarzenegger showed his respect and admiration for Bruce Willis, and also stated that, as action heroes, “we never retire.”
As you know, Bruce Willis has worked in a multitude of action movie franchises like Die Hard, but he has also embraced other genres such as the dramatic in Pulp Fiction or in his starring role in The Sixth Sense.
But in 2022, Bruce Willis’ family announced that he was retiring from the film industry after being diagnosed with aphasia. Later, according to other reports, he was diagnosed with frontotemporal dementia.
Schwarzenegger has a great friendship with Bruce Willis and wanted to dedicate some words to the star of Die Hard.
In an interview with Cinema Blend, Schwarzenegger spoke about his former colleague: “He was, always for years and years, a huge star. And I think he will always be remembered as a great, great star. And a kind man. I understand that given his health circumstances, he had to retire. But in general, you know, we never retire. Action heroes reload.”
We probably won’t see Bruce Willis in a movie role again, but his legacy will endure for generations.
