Sylvester Stallone ‘Was Praying’ For Bruce Willis

Bruce Willis, renowned for his roles in numerous Hollywood action films, has been diagnosed with frontotemporal dementia, a condition that affects his ability to comprehend and express language. This devastating news has not only saddened his fans but has also deeply affected his colleagues in the industry. One of his co-stars, Sylvester Stallone, expressed his heartbreak over Willis’s diagnosis.



Sylvester Stallone, who worked alongside Bruce Willis in “The Expendables,” shared his sorrow in response to the news. He acknowledged the difficulty that Willis was going through and expressed his sadness, stating that it “kills” him to see his friend facing such challenges.

Stallone even posted a photo of himself with Willis on Instagram, accompanied by a heartfelt message, “We go back a long way, praying for the best for you and your wonderful family.” Willis’s family had previously announced his retirement from acting due to his medical condition, revealing that he had been diagnosed with aphasia, which affects cognitive abilities. Speaking to  The Hollywood Reporter he said:

“Bruce is going through some really, really difficult times. So he’s been sort of incommunicado. That kills me. It’s so sad.

Despite some past disagreements and tensions related to “The Expendables” franchise, where Willis and Stallone had a falling out over compensation for the third installment, Stallone’s response to Willis’s diagnosis reflects genuine concern and sympathy. Their friendship endured, and they reconciled after their previous disputes.

Bruce Willis and Sylvester Stallone, both iconic figures in the action genre, have shared a long history in the entertainment industry. While they may have had their differences at times, Stallone’s reaction to Willis’s health challenges underscores the deep bonds that can exist among colleagues in Hollywood.
