Arnold Schwarzenegger on Bruce Willis’ retirement: Action stars “never really retire…they reload”


Arnold Schwarzenegger has high praise for Bruce Willis following the actor’s announcement that he is retiring from acting due to a brain condition called aphasia.

The actor’s family announced the news last year following his diagnosis, which has since been updated more specifically to frontotemporal dementia.

He was recently asked about Willis’ retirement and had nothing but kind words about the actor.

“I think he’s fantastic,” said Schwarzenegger CinemaBlend from Willis. “He was, always for years and years, a huge, huge star. And I think he will always be remembered as a big, big star. And a kind man.”

And, speaking like one action star over another, Schwarzenegger added: “I understand that under his circumstances, health wise, he had to retire. But generally, you know, we never really retire. Action heroes, they reload.”

Schwarzenegger and Willis were early partners in the Planet Hollywood restaurant franchise and also collaborated on The expendables franchise.

Willis celebrated his 68th birthday in March surrounded by his family, including ex-wife Demi Moore, current wife Emma Heming Willis and his daughters.

Meanwhile, Schwarzenegger stars in Netflix’s new action comedy FUBAR like Arnold, a docuseries also on Netflix, chronicling his life. He also has a soon-to-be-released self-help book, Be Useful: Seven Tools for Life, and as well as a self-published daily motivational newsletter.
