As you know, Bruce Willis has been suffering from an incurable illness for almost two years now. We are, of course, talking about frontotemporal dementia. Alas, recently the star of the action movie “Die Hard” began to show signs of dementia. Moreover, the 68-year-old actor suffers from mood swings. And the old love of reading has completely dried up. What else is known about the man’s condition and what details Tallulah Willis told about her father, you will find out with us in the next few minutes.
Tallulah Willis about his father
It’s no secret that everyone’s favorite “Die Hard” has no chance of recovery. After all, as you know, the 68-year-old actor is struggling with temporofrontal dementia, for which, unfortunately, there is no life-saving cure. Moreover, and importantly, the actor’s condition is only getting worse every day. That’s why it’s so important that Bruce Willis is supported by his family and friends.
For example, the actor’s youngest daughter from his marriage to Demi Moore, Tallulah Willis, spoke about her father and his condition in a conversation with Drew Barrymore. Thus, the heiress of “Die Hard” admitted that her parent’s illness is developing incredibly rapidly. However, the man still recognizes his children and wife. But in the case of his ex-wife, it took him time to remember his ex-chosen one .
“ He still knows who I am and lights up when I walk into a room. I know that we would be good friends if only we had more time. He’s the same. I think that’s the best you can ask for in this situation. I see love when I’m with him. This is my father and he loves me. And that’s really important.”
“When he’s not around…”
By the way, the 29-year-old actress also admitted why Willis’s family speaks so openly not only about the celebrity’s diagnosis, but also about all the changes. After all, according to Tallulah, it could not have been otherwise. You see, all the relatives and friends of Die Hard live this every day. In addition, it is important to spread awareness about frontotemporal dementia. “ We can use what we struggle with as a family and as individuals to help other people; change it and do something beautiful. It is very important for us”.
Nevertheless, Tallulah Willis, speaking of her father, is already preparing for the time when her parent will pass away. So, a girl, visiting Bruce , takes “tons of photographs.” Even text and voice messages do not go unnoticed. The actor’s heiress does all this so that she has the memory of her dad. “When he’s not around, they’ll be a reminder of him.”
Interestingly, it was Tallulah who first drew attention to the symptoms of her father’s illness. You see, at some point the actor seemed detached in his communication with the heiress. The girl suggested that Bruce had lost interest in her because of his young wife. But, as you already guessed, she was wrong.
