celebritiesTallulah, daughter of Bruce Willis (68 years old), provided an update on the health of the American actor. At the end of February, it became known that Bruce suffers not only from aphasia, but also from frontotemporal dementia (FTD). Since then his condition has deteriorated sharply. “But despite the diagnosis, he remains the same,” he said.

“The best we can hope for is for it to stay the same. At this moment it is. He’s my father and I feel like he loves me very much,” Tallulah revealed in an interview on “The Drew Barrymore Show.”
Since his diagnosis, Willis’ family has been very open about his health. “Our family believes it is very important to spread awareness about frontal dementia,” Tallulah explains. “If we can help others with this, it is very special for us,” she concludes.

Director Glenn Gordon Caron, a good family friend, also confirmed earlier in an interview with the New York Post that the actor was deteriorating rapidly. “If you spent time with Bruce Willis, you know that no one had more fun in life than him,” the American director said. “He loved life and loved waking up every morning. He lived his life to the fullest. When you’re with him, you know it’s Bruce and you’re grateful he’s there, but his enthusiasm for life is gone. That’s what makes his illness so amazing.”
“For example, he used to read a lot of books, but he doesn’t do that anymore. All those language skills have become difficult for him. “I think Bruce recognized me in the first few minutes, but he doesn’t talk much anymore,” the director added.
FTD, the disease the Die Hard star suffers from, often occurs at a relatively young age and there is no cure. The disease causes radical changes in behavior, language skills, and motor skills. Memory problems often occur only at a later stage.
