Bruce Willis is no longer the recipient of this year’s “Worst Performance” Razzie — the org is pulling the title after learning the actor’s battling a debilitating condition.
Willis had 8 films from 2021 highlighted within Razzie’s “Worst of Hollywood” ceremony over the weekend. However, it was his work on “Cosmic Sin” that earned Bruce “Worst Performance.”
Unfortunate timing for the Razzies … just a few days later Bruce’s family announced he’d been diagnosed with aphasia, a disease that hinders a person’s ability to communicate and understand language.
On Thursday, Razzie co-founders Mo Murphy and John Wilson said in a statement, “If someone’s medical condition is a factor in their decision making and/or their performance, we acknowledge that it is not appropriate to give them a Razzie.”
Hence, they’re taking back the award.
As we reported, Rumer Willis, broke the sad news, posting, “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.” She says her dad has stepped away from acting as a result.
All in all, Bruce has been in more than a dozen flicks in the past 2 years — and fans, and critics alike, are now looking at them with a much different perspective.
