In which films does it seem clear that the actor or actors accepted the role just for the pay?

Bruce Willis (March 19, 1955) acted in excellent and successful films, such as Die Hard (1988),

Pulp Fiction (1994),

Army of the 12 Monkeys (1995),

The Fifth Element (1997),

The Sixth Sense (1999),

and Sin City (2005),

but in recent years he has accepted smaller roles in several low-budget independent films released in limited theaters and on-demand platforms, leaving the impression that he is only interested in the paycheck.

Those who worked on the films later said that Willis looked confused, didn’t understand why he was there, and had to be imitated through an earpiece. The Golden Raspberry Awards, an annual award for the worst films and worst performances of the year, created a dedicated category, Worst Performance in a Bruce Willis Film of 2021, for his roles in eight films released that year.

On March 30, 2022, Willis’ family announced his retirement because he was diagnosed with aphasia, a disorder typically caused by damage to the area of ​​the brain that controls speech and language understanding. The Golden Raspberry Awards withdrew the Willis category, stating that it was inappropriate to award a Golden Raspberry to someone whose performance was affected by a medical condition.

Bruce Willis was aware of the health problem he was going through, and those films were just to make money and leave his family in good financial stability.
