Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Message to Bruce Willis: ‘We Never Really Retire Action Heroes, They Reload’
Arnold Schwarzenegger is giving his longtime friend and fellow action movie star Bruce Willis a superhero-sized shout out! The 75-year-old actor opened up in a recent interview with CinemaBlend about the “Die Hard” actor one year after his family announced he would be retiring from acting due to his health. “I think that he’s fantastic. He was, always for years and years, is a huge, huge star. And I think that he will always be remembered as a great, great star. And a kind man. I understand that under his circumstances, health-wise, that he had to retire. But in general, you know, we never really retire. Action heroes, they reload,” Arnold told the outlet. The Golden Globe winner has been keeping a low profile since his family revealed that he was stepping away from acting after being diagnosed with aphasia in March 2022. In March 2023, they explained that his condition had progressed, and they have a more specific diagnosis of frontotemporal dementia.
