In a statement on social media on Wednesday, family members of Bruce Willis announced that the 67-year-old star is retiring due to health issues.

“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.

As a result of this and with much consideration Bruce is stepping away from the career that has meant so much to him,” they wrote.

“This is a really challenging time for our family and we are so appreciative of your continued love, compassion, and support. 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,” they continued.

“As Bruce always says, ‘Live it up’ and together we plan to do just that. Love, Emma, Demi, Rumer, Scout, Tallulah, Mabel, & Evelyn.”

Director Randall Emmett, who directed Bruce in the 2021 American crime thriller film Midnight in the Switchgrass, shared his support with People: “Bruce and I have worked on over 20 films together. He is a terrific actor and legendary action star, an incredible father, and a close friend. I fully support Bruce and his family during this challenging time and admire him for his courage in battling this incredibly difficult medical condition. Bruce will always be a part of our family.”

I like shoes that offer a different flavor on the plate. And in case you haven’t noticed, I like featuring odd-looking ones that are simply out of this world too.

In September 2020, Jennifer Garner wore the YSL “Palais” strappy platforms pumps to the Sixth Annual Pink Party at the W Hollywood in Los Angeles.

She styled her shoes with a Stella McCartney Fall 2010 ensemble consisting of a fuchsia satin tunic and a white silk-organza skirt.

I didn’t like the skirt she wore, but the rest, especially the hot pink shoes, were amazing. In fact, you can easily forgive her for wearing such a hideous skirt once you see the pair on her feet.

Just a few weeks later, Demi Moore’s daughter, Rumer Willis, was also spotted wearing the black version of the same shoes to the screening of the movie RED.

So, what do you think of these fresh babies from YSL? They look a lot like a cross between booties and double strapped Mary Jane pumps; not your usual, but definitely striking.

If you like these pumps, Nordstrom has them in a hot royal blue color called Bluette!
