Hayley Joel Osment starred with Bruce Willis in a watershed movie for both of them, “The Sixth Sense.” He was just 11 years old back in 1999.
Now a grown man, Osment has posted a lovely tribute to Bruce on Instagram. He knows how serious Bruce’s condition is, probably more than we do. Here’s what he has to say:
“It’s been difficult to find the right words for someone I’ve always looked up to—first on the big screen, and then by some wild stroke of luck, in person. He’s a true legend who has enriched all of our lives with a singular career that spans nearly half a century. I am so grateful for what I got to witness firsthand, and for the enormous body of work he built for us to enjoy for years and years to come. I just wanted to express the respect and deep admiration I have for Bruce and his family as they move forward with the courage and high spirits that have always defined them.”
