Bruce Willis is enjoying his retirement
Willis has been enjoying his retirement and recently took a stroll down memory lane as well. The actor, who has since retired to focus on his health, starred in the popular 1988 film Die Hard in one of his most popular roles as the resilient hero John McClane. The film follows McClane as he foils a hostile takeover of a Los Angeles skyscraper known as Nakatomi Plaza.
In reality, Century City’s Fox Plaza was used for the film’s Nakatomi Plaza setting, as the building was under construction at the time. A recent post on Instagram by Emma Heming Willis, Bruce’s wife, reveals that the Die Hard star revisited the building in honor of the film’s 34th anniversary. In the video, Willis reminisces standing on the roof of the skyscraper with the video clip, including footage Die Hard.
“Nakatomi Plaza 34 years later,” says Emma in the caption.
Willis has been spending a lot more time with family since retiring from his acting career. In March, his family announced that he had retired from acting after being diagnosed with aphasia, a condition that alters the actor’s ability to communicate and understand language.
“Our beloved Bruce has a number of health issues and was recently diagnosed with aphasia which is affecting his cognitive abilities,” the family said in a statement. “As a result, and with much consideration, Bruce is stepping down from the career that has meant so much to him. This is a truly challenging time for our family and we are so grateful for your continued love, compassion and support.”
The message added: “We are moving through this as a strong family unit and wanted to include his fans because we know how much he means to you as you do to him. As Bruce always says, ‘Live it high’ and together we plan to do just that.”
