Kevin Smith regrets the complaints made by “Petty” Bruce Willis in 2010

Kevin Smith responded to the news of Bruce Willis’ retirement and being diagnosed with aphasia by saying he felt “like an asshole” for publicly smacking the actor over a decade ago. Smith directed Willis and Tracy Morgan in the 2010 buddy comedy Cop Out, but the director’s relationship with Willis has been tumultuous. On a 2011 episode of Marc Maron’s podcast, Smith said “it was bloody soul crushing” working with Willis.

“It was difficult,” Smith said of Willis at the time. The director added that Willis “wouldn’t even sit for a f***ing poster shoot” and that “without Tracy, I would have killed either myself or someone else doing the f***ing ‘Cop Out’.”

After announcing that Willis is leaving his career after being diagnosed with aphasia, a speech disorder caused by brain damage that affects a person’s ability to communicate, Smith joined other Hollywood stars in sending congratulations to Willis and his family.

I was big before the ‘Cop Out’ stuff Bruce Willis Fan so it’s really heartbreaking to read,” Smith wrote on Twitter. “He loved acting and singing and the loss of that must be devastating for him. I feel like an asshole for my little complaints from 2010. I’m so sorry [Bruce Willis] and his family.”

Willis’ family announced his diagnosis and retirement in a joint statement on social media. “This is a truly challenging time for our family and we are so grateful for your continued love, compassion and support,” the family said. “We’re going through this as a strong family unit and wanted to include his fans because we know how much he means to you, just as you mean to him. As Bruce always says, ‘Live it up’ and together we plan to do just that.”

Actor Seth Green also responded to the news on Twitter, writing: “I love Bruce Willis so much and am grateful for every character he has given us. Hugs and love for the whole family. Thank you for sharing it with all of us.”

“Health Bruce Willis!” wrote Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld. “Prayers for healing and sincere gratitude for sharing your talents with all of us!”
