In 2010, actor Bruce Willis appeared for an interview with The Guardian to talk about his movie, Red. During the interview, the actor was asked what he would do if he had no more movies to star in, he replied,

“It’s a good question, I don’t know… I would like to do nothing but I think that’d get boring too, so I think I’ll just keep working but I don’t think about it that much.”

The actor added that he hopes that he always continues to work. Unfortunately, a medical condition forced Willis to step down from acting in 2022. Those who worked in films with Willis before his retirement claimed that he appeared confused, did not understand why he was there, and delivered his lines with the help of an earpiece. As a result, his scenes were removed from many films, and his remaining scenes were shot in just one day.
