Awwww, no.

Bruce Willis’s Family Shares Major Update on Actor’s Health

Bruce Willis’s family announced Thursday that the “Die Hard” actor was diagnosed with frontotemporal dementia, confirming that his condition “progressed” after he stepped away from acting last year.

In March 2022, his family said Willis, 67, was diagnosed with aphasia and was “stepping away” from acting.

His ex-wife, actress Demi Moore, confirmed the frontotemporal dementia diagnosis in an Instagram post on Thursday. Some health authorities say the condition is an “uncommon type of dementia” that can lead to problems with language and behavior.

“Our family wanted to start by expressing our deepest gratitude for the incredible outpouring of love, support and wonderful stories we have all received since sharing Bruce’s original diagnosis,” Moore, who shares three children with Willis, wrote on behalf of the family. “In the spirit of that, we wanted to give you an update about our beloved husband, father and friend since we now have a deeper understanding of what he is experiencing.”

“Bruce has always found joy in life—and has helped everyone he knows to do the same. It has meant the world to see that sense of care echoed back to him and to all of us,” Thursday’s statement added. “We have been so moved by the love you have all shared for our dear husband, father, and friend during this difficult time. Your continued compassion, understanding, and respect will enable us to help Bruce live as full a life as possible.”

Damn, I really do hate to hear this. All best wishes to Bruce, Demi, and his family.

  1. It’s sad as hell. Long ago I sat next to him on a flight home from Texas. I didn’t realize who he was as we chatted a few minutes until we did a semi formal introduction and he said his name. I think he smiled when he saw the semi shocked look on my face. Anyway, nice guy IMO.

    1. How he got mixed up with that Demi Moore is a mystery.

      Oh yeah, she was hot.

      But on the wrong quadrant of the Hot/Crazy Matrix.

  2. I’m calling stroke, secondary to getting The Jabs.

    67-year-olds don’t suddenly and progressively lose their shit like this.
    87-year-olds? Sure.
    67-year-olds, who were acting in multiple flicks/year without any problem just a year or two beforehand? No. Fucking. Way.

      1. I don’t think they’re necessarily lying about that diagnosis.

        I think they’re not talking about the etiology that allowed him to get to that diagnosis, and/or anything else going on with Willis. If it was Demi, given her lifelong drug use, I wouldn’t bat an eye at her brain being fried. Bruce, OTOH? My radar says “Bullshit is being perpetrated.”

        Actors who should be living into their 80s and even 90s relatively intact, more so than the average Joe, given socio-economic standing and access to top-notch medical care, and per the pre-2019 actuarial tables, be dropping like flies lately.

        It’s the same pattern we’ve been seeing with wealthy 20-something world-class soccer stars, olympic swimmers, and the occasional NFL player on MNF.

        We’re being gaslighted, we’ve been gaslighted until now, and we will continue to be gaslit as long as TPTB can get away with it. And probably even after it’s obvious to even Stevie Wonder, from space, that they’re lying their asses off.

        Anything to avoid a general backlash that would make the French Revolution’s Reign Of Terror look like a church social by comparison.

"America is at that awkward stage. It's too late to work within the system, but too early to shoot the bastards."
Claire Wolfe, 101 Things to Do 'Til the Revolution

Claire's Cabal—The Freedom Forums

FREEDOM!!!

"There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters."
Daniel Webster

“When I was young I was depressed all the time. But suicide no longer seemed a possibility in my life. At my age there was very little left to kill.”
Charles Bukowski

“A slave is one who waits for someone to come and free him.”
Ezra Pound

“The illusion of freedom will continue as long as it’s profitable to continue the illusion. At the point where the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain, they will just take down the scenery, they will pull back the curtains, they will move the tables and chairs out of the way and you will see the brick wall at the back of the theater.”
Frank Zappa

“The right of a nation to kill a tyrant in case of necessity can no more be doubted than to hang a robber, or kill a flea.”
John Adams

"A society of sheep must in time beget a government of wolves."
Bertrand de Jouvenel

"It is terrible to contemplate how few politicians are hanged."
GK Chesterton

"I predict that the Bush administration will be seen by freedom-wishing Americans a generation or two hence as the hinge on the cell door locking up our freedom. When my children are my age, they will not be free in any recognizably traditional American meaning of the word. I’d tell them to emigrate, but there’s nowhere left to go. I am left with nauseating near-conviction that I am a member of the last generation in the history of the world that is minimally truly free."
Donald Surber

"The only way to live free is to live unobserved."
Etienne de la Boiete

"History does not long entrust the care of freedom to the weak or the timid."
Dwight D. Eisenhower

"To put it simply, the Left is the stupid and the insane, led by the evil. You can’t persuade the stupid or the insane and you had damn well better fight the evil."
Skeptic

"There is no better way to stamp your power on people than through the dead hand of bureaucracy. You cannot reason with paperwork."
David Black, from Turn Left For Gibraltar

"If the laws of God and men, are therefore of no effect, when the magistracy is left at liberty to break them; and if the lusts of those who are too strong for the tribunals of justice, cannot be otherwise restrained than by sedition, tumults and war, those seditions, tumults and wars, are justified by the laws of God and man."
John Adams

"The limits of tyranny are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress."
Frederick Douglass

"Give me the media and I will make of any nation a herd of swine."
Joseph Goebbels

“I hope we once again have reminded people that man is not free unless government is limited. There’s a clear cause and effect here that is as neat and predictable as a law of physics: As government expands, liberty contracts.”
Ronald Reagan

"Ain't no misunderstanding this war. They want to rule us and aim to do it. We aim not to allow it. All there is to it."
NC Reed, from Parno's Peril

"I just want a government that fits in the box it originally came in."
Bill Whittle
