As Bruce Willis departs from "The Expendables," Arnold Schwarzenegger praises his co-star. The "FUBAR" star told Willis is "fantastic."
Schwarzenegger, Willis, and Sylvester Stallone, the "holy trinity" of 1980s and 1990s action stars, were competitors in the acting profession.
"I understand that under his circumstances, health-wise, that he had to retire," Schwarzenegger said of Willis' legacy. However, we never retire. Action heroes reload."
Willis' family—wife Emma Heming Willis, ex-wife Demi Moore, and their three daughters—announced his retirement in March 2022. "Assassin," released in March, was Willis' penultimate film.
The family said earlier this year that his health "progressed," leading to a frontotemporal dementia diagnosis.
Unfortunately, Bruce's condition causes communication issues. "While this is painful, it is a relief to finally have a clear diagnosis," the family's statement.
Haley Joel Osment, who portrayed 9-year-old Cole in "The Sixth Sense," thanked Willis on Instagram.
