Paparazzi recently took the first photos of Bruce Willis after an interview where his wife, Emma Hemming, discussed his worsening dementia. The 68-year-old “Die Hard” actor was seen in Los Angeles wearing a dark blue jacket and hat.
Emma explained on the Today show how dementia has impacted their family, describing it as challenging for both the diagnosed person and their family.
When asked if Bruce is aware of his condition, Emma mentioned that it’s difficult to say. She expressed the complexity of dealing with dementia, referring to it as both a blessing and a curse.
Emma emphasized the struggle of understanding Bruce’s situation and coming to terms with it. In March 2022, Bruce Willis’s family made public his diagnosis of aphasia, a condition causing speech function loss.
A year later, new information about his health emerged, revealing that he was diagnosed with frontotemporal dementia. This form of dementia affects behavior, personality, and communication. The family has been navigating these challenges together.
