Arnold Schwarzenegger Speaks On Bruce Willis’ Retirement
Arnold Schwarzenegger has praised his co-star Bruce Willis, referring to him as “a huge, huge star” and expressing his belief that Willis will always be remembered as a great star.
Schwarzenegger, known for his iconic role as the Terminator, shared his admiration for Willis in an interview with CinemaBlend. The two actors previously worked together in the movie franchise “The Expendables.” Schwarzenegger described Willis as “fantastic” and also mentioned that he considers him a kind man.
Schwarzenegger and Willis, along with Sylvester Stallone, were considered rivals in the acting world during the ’80s and ’90s, but they were also friends.
In fact, the trio even joined forces to open the restaurant chain Planet Hollywood in 1991. While discussing Willis’ retirement, Schwarzenegger acknowledged that health issues, specifically aphasia and frontotemporal dementia, played a role in his decision. However, Schwarzenegger emphasized that action heroes never truly retire; they simply reload.
Following the announcement of Willis’ retirement, several actors, including John Travolta and Haley Joel Osment, shared tributes to their former co-star.
Travolta, who worked with Willis in “Pulp Fiction,” posted throwback photos of the two and spoke highly of Willis’s generosity. Osment, who acted alongside Willis in “The Sixth Sense,” expressed his gratitude for the opportunity to work with a true legend and praised Willis’s remarkable career spanning nearly half a century.
