Bruce’s family made the announcement on his behalf, stating that his cognitive abilities have been affected by the disorder.

John, who starred opposite Bruce in Pulp Fiction, shared a snap of him and the 67-year-old.

He wrote: “Bruce and I became good friends when we shared two of our biggest hits together, Pulp Fiction and Look Who’s Talking.

“Years later he said to me, ‘John, I just want you to know that when something good happens to you, I feel like it’s going to happen to me.’ That’s how generous he is. I love you Bruce.”
