According to sources close to the family, the symptoms of frontotemporal dementia suffered by the 67-year-old actor are progressing rapidly and his conditions are increasingly difficult to manage
Starting with an aphasia (that is, a speech disorder), Bruce Willis’ disease is progressing quickly (he suffers from frontotemporal dementia, as Demi Moore recently revealed) and even the 67-year-old actor’s own family members are beginning to feel the effects . One of the most serious problems would concern Willis’ inability to recognize people dear to him, such as his mother. “She is not sure that her son still recognizes her,” confessed Wilfried Gliem, cousin of Mrs. Marlene, in an interview with Bild.
“He’s getting more and more aggressive”
Speaking instead to the newspaper Marca, another source close to the woman added new details on Willis’ conditions, if possible even more worrying. «His reactions are very slow, he is increasingly aggressive and it is no longer possible to have a normal conversation with him. Even if this behavior is normal in his condition ». The Hollywood star’s ordeal began on March 30 last year, when he was diagnosed with aphasia, which forced him to suspend acting. Initially it was thought of only a temporary departure from the scene, but almost a year later – on February 18, 2023 – the family updated the fans on Willis’ conditions with a painful post on Instagram, where the disease was finally given a name which he suffers.
The press release
“We wanted to update you on our beloved husband, father and friend as we now have a deeper understanding of what he is experiencing. Since we announced Bruce’s aphasia diagnosis in spring 2022, his condition has progressed and we now have a more specific diagnosis: frontotemporal dementia (known as FTD). Sadly, communication difficulties are just one symptom of the illness Bruce faces. While this is painful, it’s a relief to finally have a clear diagnosis.”
