The actor Bruce Willis alarmed his fans and family when he announced at the end of March 2022 that he was showing a deterioration in his health, after being diagnosed with aphasia. Through a statement he revealed that he would retire from acting after more than four decades of career, but the story has taken a new turn after he speculated that an accident while shooting a movie was what caused it.

After his retirement from the seventh art due to a cognitive disease that, among other things, involves a language disorder and the ability to speak or write, the British media the sun shared that the German actor would have suffered a blow during the recording of the war movie The sun’s tearswhich was directed by Antoine Fuqua in the year 2002.

The newspaper detailed the theory where, after having received a hit with a special effects projectile in his head, the actor suffered significant damage to his state of health. Stuart F. Wilson, his stunt double of 17 years, told the UK-published tabloid newspaper: “We had seen some changes. Sometimes when you talked to him, he seemed distracted and we thought that it meant nothingbut you wondered if other things were going on.”

A year after the film was published, in the 2004 Bruce Willis sued Revolution Studiosthe producer behind the feature film, and the person in charge of special effects, joe pancakefor negligence alleging that he had “suffered significant mental and physical injuries”, as reported at the time.

Situation that occurred in the recording of the year 2002, two decades ago before being diagnosed with aphasia and had to retire from the world of acting to which he devoted himself for 40 years. Given this, the person responsible for effects in other films such as Dragonball Evolution, Pearl Harbor Y Domino assured in an interview for Daily Mail what “the judge laughed in his (Bruce Willis) face and carried him out of the courtroom.” In addition, he considered the hypothesis that his aphasia was a product of the incident to be “nonsense”, attributing that it does not make sense that the symptoms appear suddenly after twenty years.
