Bruce Willis goes out for ice cream with his longtime friend Stephen Eads


Bruce Willis goes out for ice cream with his best friend of 20 years Stephen Eads… two months after revealing he is suffering from aphasia

Bruce Willis was spotted picking up a large cup of ice cream in Los Angeles on Monday.

The 67-year-old actor was joined by his longtime close friend Stephen Eads who went from Willis’ personal assistant in the early 1990s to a producer on his films.

The Die Hard star sported a shirt from Katonah, New York, where he previously owned a large compound.

Bruce sold the five-bedroom estate that sits on 22 acres in Westchester county in 2019 for $8.7million.

The Death Becomes Her star added faded jeans and a baseball cap with a large ‘B’ on it pulled low over his eyes. 

Willis and Eads worked together on 1991’s The Last Boy Scout (when Wads was an assistant to Willis), 2002’s Hart’s War, 2007’s Live Free Or Die Hard, 2017’s Once Upon A Time In Venice and 2021’s American Siege. 

During the ice cream outing, Eads had on all black with his long gray hair down. 

Willis’ ice cream adventure comes as he has been keeping a low profile in recent months following his diagnosis with aphasia.

Willis’ disorder is ‘a condition that affects your ability to communicate’ that ‘can affect your speech, as well as the way you write and understand both spoken and written language,’ according to The Mayo Clinic

The condition could occur following a head injury or stroke, or can be a predecessor to a brain tumor or Alzheimer’s disease.

Patients who are living with the condition are typically treated with speech therapy and taught ways to communicate non-verbally.

His wife Emma, ex-wife Demi Moore, 59, and five daughters Rumer, 33, Scout, 30, Tallulah, 28, Mabel Ray, 10, and Evelyn, eight, issued a joint statement via Instagram March 30 announcing his aphasia diagnosis. 

They said that the Hollywood icon ‘has been experiencing some health issues and has recently been diagnosed with aphasia, which is impacting his cognitive abilities. 

‘As a result of this and with much consideration Bruce is stepping away from the career that has meant so much to him. This is a really challenging time for our family and we are so appreciative of your continued love, compassion and support.’

They continued: ‘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.’

Willis’ career spanned nearly 45 years and saw him take on iconic roles in films like Pulp Fiction, Die Hard, The Sixth Sense, Unbreakable and many more projects. 

Last month Cybill Shepherd made some rare comments about her Moonlighting co-star Willis.

The 72-year-old iconic Hollywood star said she had great chemistry with the actor and ‘will always love him.’ Their TV show aired from 1985 until 1989.

The blonde beauty spoke about her longtime friend when at the annual Race to Erase MS benefit gala in Los Angeles hosted by Race to Erase MS founder Nancy Davis.

Willis recently announcement he has retired to battle aphasia. 

Shepherd told Extra that they were into each other. ‘My temperature went up 10 degrees. That meant two things to me: one, I was very attracted to him, two, I would never act on it, ’cause we were both very attracted to each other.’

She added, ‘I will always love Bruce.’

And she said he was the only guy they wanted for their TV show.  ‘I just have to say one thing about Bruce,’ she said. ‘No one else was ever considered for the part when he walked in the room.’
