Best known for his starring roles in cult-classic films like Die Hard, Pulp Fiction, and Armageddon, Bruce is nothing short of a household name.

Back in March, just one week after the actor's 67th birthday, it was announced that the "Unbreakable" star would be retiring from Hollywood.

In a heartbreaking post shared by all of Bruce's family members, fans were informed of the actor's recent diagnosis.

"To Bruce’s amazing supporters, as a family we wanted to share that our beloved Bruce has been experiencing some health issues and has recently been diagnosed with aphasia, which is impacting his cognitive abilities."

According to, aphasia is a disorder caused by severe trauma or damage to a specific part of the brain that controls "language expression and comprehension."

"Aphasia leaves a person unable to communicate effectively with others," the website reads.

The statement continued: "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."

Support soon came flooding in for the actor, who has been keeping a low profile since the announcement.

However, the actor is making an exception and sharing a special moment with fans to honor the 34th anniversary of his iconic Die Hard film by returning to Nakatomi Plaza.

In the video, shared by Bruce's wife Emma, fans see the actor on top of the Fox Plaza building once again.

The video is then edited with clips of Bruce from the film for a tribute that is sure to make any Die Hard fan very, very happy.

"On top of Nakatomi Plaza 34 years later," she captioned the clip, which you can watch here.

So happy Bruce was able to have this special moment!
