Fans of actor Bruce Willis are urging his family to give him the privacy he deserves, after his daughter posted videos of him on social media. The 68-year-old Hollywood star was diagnosed with frontotemporal dementia (FTD) after much speculation and rumors about his health.
The Willis family has been commendably open about Bruce’s condition and has provided regular updates since the diagnosis. Speaking on The Drew Barrymore Show, his youngest daughter, Tallulah Willis, explained why they have chosen to be so transparent. She shared, “It’s not only about who we are as a family, but it’s also vital for us to raise awareness about FTD because there is still a lack of information out there.”
FTD is a rare form of dementia that affects a person’s behavior rather than memory loss, which is common in other types of dementia like Alzheimer’s disease. Bruce’s daughter Scout LaRue recently posted a heart-wrenching video on Instagram, sparking concern among fans. In the footage, Scout reaches out to her father, who appears significantly different from his former self. Another video shows her hand lying in his, but he seems distracted and doesn’t look at the camera.
While some fans applauded the family’s openness and the opportunity to shed light on these struggles, others raised concerns about Bruce’s privacy. Many argue that these private moments should remain private, as Bruce is no longer a public figure and deserves peace in this difficult time.
