Demi Moore Tearfully Delivers ‘Beautiful’ Comment About Ex-Husband Bruce Willis' Dementia Diagnosis

May 24, 2024 by apost team

Bruce Willis is one of the most legendary Hollywood actors of all time. He is most famous for his roles in action films but has also shown to have quite a diverse set of talents, appearing in films and television shows in a variety of genres and even showing off his skills as a singer. On top of that, Willis is also adored for his amazing qualities as a husband and father.

Willis was born Walter Bruce Willis on March 19, 1955, in Idar-Oberstein, Germany. He grew up with a German mother and an American father, who was stationed there by the United States military at the time of his birth. 

Willis had his breakthrough in 1985 with the TV series “Moonlighting,” and has since appeared in more than 70 films. Some of his most loved performances include the films “Pulp Fiction,” “Armageddon,” “The Sixth Sense,” and his portrayal of John McClane in the “Die Hard” franchise.

In his private life, Willis had some ups and downs when it came to finding love. He married two times and is the father of five daughters. Willis first married actress Demi Moore in 1987, and the two had three daughters together: Rumer, Scout and Tallulah. Willis and Moore divorced in 2000, but they have remained good friends and great co-parents ever since. After marrying Moore, Willis also married Emma Heming, whom he shares two children with – Mabel and Evelyn. 

Things changed when Willis was diagnosed with frontotemporal dementia in 2023. Moore and Heming’s household merged to support the actor emotionally and mentally as he goes through this particular harrowing period in his life. 

Since his diagnosis, Moore has spoken extensively about her ex-husband’s deteriorating health condition while also supporting other families who also experience the same challenge.

Fans and movie lovers worldwide were shocked in March 2022 when Willis' family announced he was diagnosed with aphasia. The condition is one that makes the victim have difficulty in communication and language processing. In the statement, the family explained that the condition would impact Willis’ cognitive abilities and noted that it was a challenging time for them. 

Following the statement’s release, the family has regularly updated fans about Willis’ well-being and the difficulties they faced amid his health struggles. His wife, Heming, regularly updated her Instagram feed with pictures and videos of the family celebrating milestones with Willis. The family and fans hoped Willis’ condition would improve, but their hopes were shattered once again when the actor’s oldest daughter, Rumer, released a statement on Feb. 16, 2023, revealing that her father’s aphasia had progressed into frontotemporal dementia. In the statement, which Rumer made through Instagram, she noted that Willis’ challenges with communication were just one of the symptoms he would face. 

About two weeks after the announcement, Heming revealed she met dementia treatment expert Teepa Snow and discussed how to care for Willis. On March 21, 2023, Heming celebrated her and Willis’ 14th wedding anniversary by posting a video on Instagram that showed them renewing their vows in 2019. Heming has shared several other updates about her ailing husband amid his diagnosis. However, she isn’t the only one, as Moore and her three daughters are also taking measures to recall how loving Willis has been and still is. 

Since then, the two families have been very supportive of each other, including Heming and Moore.

On Fathers’ Day 2023, Willis was celebrated by Moore and Heming. In an Instagram post, Heming shared an adorable photo of Willis and her eldest daughter, Mabel. The then-11-year-old girl scooted and hugged Willis as they sat on a lounge chair. Willis was kissing his daughter on the forehead as she gave a beaming smile. 

“Father’s Day is a time I get to reflect on my deep appreciation and respect I have for Bruce as I watch him father our little ones. Where it might not be 'conventional,' what he’s teaching them will span generations. Unconditional love, kindness, strength, compassion, patience, generosity, resilience,” Heming wrote in the caption. “Happy Father’s Day to the greatest dad I know, who will forever be the gift that keeps giving within our family.”

On the other hand, Moore, Willis’ ex-wife, also shared a sweet tribute to her ex-husband. 

“Forever grateful to you BW for giving me these three beautiful girls. We love our #girldad. Happy Father’s Day!” she wrote in the nostalgic Instagram post. 

The “Ghost” actress posted a black-and-white throwback photo of Willis and her three daughters – Rumer, Scout and Tallulah – while they were still very young. Everyone, including the action star, stuck out their tongues for the camera – a heart-fluttering photograph that would melt everyone. 

As expected, fans of Willis and Moore flocked to the comment section, greeting Willis and sharing how amazing their family dynamics were. 

“Lovely family It is precious the love and respect you show and have always shown for him. You have been and continue to be a wonderful family,” a fan commented. 

“Thats a sweet Tribute Demi to Bruce . Blessing to your family,” another said. 

“You guys really show how important family is and you are not 'Hollywood' may people follow your example!!!” someone else wrote.

On Feb. 2, 2024, Moore graced Andy Cohen’s SiriusXM show “Radio Andy,” alongside her castmates from “Feud: Capote Vs. The Swans.” Asked what she could tell people who have family members who have the same degenerative condition, Cohen seemed to tug a chord with Moore that had the actress open up. 

“I think the most important thing I could share is just to meet them where they’re at,” she said. “And when you let go of who they’ve been or who you think they (are), or who you would even like them to be. You can then really stay in the present and take in the joy and the love that is present and there for all that they are not that all that they are not.”

Moore’s advice had everyone nodding their heads in agreement, including Cohen, who described her advice as “beautiful.”

“I’m gonna use that when I go home and see my mom next. Not that she has dementia, but she is really annoying,” her co-star Chloë Sevigny joked. 

Since then, Moore has passionately advocated for the search for a cure for dementia and raising awareness of the condition in general. At one point, she admitted to feeling some guilt as her ex-husband continuously receives treatment and focus from medical professionals.

“I struggle with guilt, knowing that I have resources that others don’t,” she shared in Maria Shriver’s Sunday Paper. “When I’m able to get out for a hike to clear my head, it’s not lost on me that not all care partners can do that. When what I share about our family’s journey gets press attention, I know that there are many thousands of untold, unheard stories, each of them deserving of compassion and concern.”
