Bruce Willis: An update from friend Sylvester Stallone

Since the news, we haven't heard too much about how Willis is doing. But his long-time friend, actor Sylvester Stallone, has shared a new update on the star.

In an interview with THR, Stallone was asked if he has kept in touch with Willis following the actor's retirement.

"Bruce is going through some really, really difficult times," Stallone explained to THR. "So he's been sort of incommunicado. That kills me. It's so sad."

Also interesting:

Clearly, Willis's diagnosis has been difficult for family as well as friends. Stallone and Willis were once business partners, along with Arnold Schwarzenegger, on a restaurant chain.

The action stars had previously teamed up on movie The Expendables as well. Bruce Willis still has films coming out over the next year. But in the meantime he's staying out of the public eye and in the care of loved ones.

The Die Hard star is married to Emma Heming, with whom he shares two daughters. He also has three daughters with his ex-wife Demi Moore.
