It was difficult. [He] wouldn’t even sit for a fucking poster shoot. Were it not for Tracy, I might have killed either myself or someone else in the making of fucking ‘Cop Out.’

Kevin Smith took to Twitter in order to apologize to the legendary actor. He said in a tweet that even before Cop Out, he was a massive Bruce Willis fan, and that said that he is apologetic for her “petty complaints.”

Long before any of the Cop Out stuff, I was a big Bruce Willis fan – so this is really heartbreaking to read. He loved to act and sing and the loss of that has to be devastating for him. I feel like an asshole for my petty complaints from 2010. So sorry to BW and his family.

Bruce Willis recently came out with his diagnosis of the cognitive condition “aphasia.” The language disorder to impairs a person’s ability to communicate properly due to brain damage. Many other stars, along with Smith, are expressing their grief over the actor’s unceremonious retirement.
