Demi Moore Drops Bruce Willis ‘Letting Go’ Bombshell

Demi Moore is providing insights into the challenges of caring for someone with dementia amid her ex-husband Bruce Willis’ battle with the condition. Willis, aged 68, stepped back from acting in 2022 after being diagnosed with aphasia. In February 2023, it was revealed that his condition had worsened, and he was diagnosed with frontotemporal dementia.



During an interview on Andy Cohen’s SiriusXM show “Radio Andy,” Cohen asked Moore about any advice she has for people dealing with family members who have dementia. Moore, aged 61, emphasized the importance of meeting individuals with dementia where they are at the present moment. She encouraged letting go of preconceived notions of who they used to be, allowing caregivers to focus on the joy and love that is still present in their lives.

Chloë Sevigny, Moore’s co-star in “Feud: Capote vs. The Swans,” playfully noted that she might use Moore’s advice with her own mother, even though her mother does not have dementia but can be “really annoying.”

Bruce Willis’ diagnosis has prompted Moore and their daughters, Rumer (35), Scout (32), and Tallulah (29), to rally around the “Die Hard” actor. Willis and his current spouse, Emma Heming Willis, have two daughters, Mabel (11) and Evelyn (9).

An insider revealed that Willis has both good and bad days, with more challenging days in recent months. The family has come together, spending as much time with him as possible, given the uncertainty surrounding his condition. The situation has brought the family even closer, with Moore reportedly acting as the facilitator, bringing everyone together.

The family is essentially living together, offering constant support at Willis’ home. The source noted that since Willis’ diagnosis, the family has united to preserve memories and remind him of their love. Moore, as the facilitator, plays a crucial role in keeping the family connected during this challenging time.

Glenn Gordon Caron, the creator of “Moonlighting,” spoke fondly about working with Willis in an interview, expressing admiration for Willis’ zest for life. Caron highlighted the paradox of Willis, who once loved life to the fullest, now experiencing it through the challenges of dementia. Despite the cognitive challenges, Caron noted that Willis remains an amazing person, with moments of recognition lasting for the first one to three minutes of interaction.

Willis’ battle with dementia has undoubtedly brought his loved ones closer together, creating a shared commitment to cherish every moment they have with him.
