Inset: Gary Gershoff/Getty Haley Joel Osment Says He's "So Grateful" to Have Worked with Bruce Willis on The Sixth Sense On Wednesday, Emma, 43, Moore, Rumer, Scout, Tallulah, 28, and Willis' two youngest daughters — Mabel, 10, and Evelyn, 7 — shared a statement on Instagram about his diagnosis, revealing that he has aphasia and is retiring from acting. "To Bruce's amazing supporters, as a family we wanted to share that our beloved Bruce has been experiencing some health issues and has recently been diagnosed with aphasia, which is impacting his cognitive abilities," they wrote alongside a photo of the actor on their Instagram feeds. "As a result of this and with much consideration Bruce is stepping away from the career that has meant so much to him," the caption added, in part. Willis' family's Instagram posts went on to say that it "is a really challenging time" for them all, "and we are so appreciative of your continued love, compassion and support." "We are moving through this as a strong family unit, and wanted to bring his fans in because we know how much he means to you, as you do to him. As Bruce always says, 'Live it up' and together we plan to do just that," they concluded Lucy Liu and Bruce Willis. Sylvain Gaboury/FilmMagic Liu is the latest in a long line of former costars who have posted about their love for Willis and his family, including Haley Joel Osment, John Travolta, M. Night Shyamalan and more. A friend close to the Armageddon actor told PEOPLE on Wednesday, "Bruce is beloved and everyone in Hollywood is very supportive of him and will rally around him." "He's one of the guys everyone loves in Hollywood — one of the most beloved movie stars," the friend continued. "His family is rallying around him." "He's a very devoted husband and father. There's so much goodwill for him," Willis' friend added. "He's a wonderful person, and has always had the best sense of humor — and a sense of a grace. Everyone is rooting for him."
