In a sad update to the earlier revelation of Bruce Willis’ aphasia diagnosis, a close friend of the actor has disclosed that Bruce is now experiencing a decline in his language abilities. His struggle with dementia has led to his retirement from acting, and the recent update indicates that he is “no longer verbal.”

Bruce Willis has become “not totally verbal.” In March, Bruce Willis’ family shared with the public that his brain condition, aphasia, had progressed to frontotemporal dementia (FTD). A close friend, Glenn Gordon Caron, creator of the sitcom “Moonlighting,” recently visited Bruce and revealed that the actor was unable to communicate during their time together.

Glenn said, “My sense is the first one to three minutes he knows who I am. He’s not totally verbal; he used to be a voracious reader – he didn’t want anyone to know that – and he’s not reading now.” Despite Bruce’s language skills no longer being available to him, Glenn emphasizes that “he’s still Bruce. When you’re with him, you know that he’s Bruce, and you’re grateful that he’s there, but the joie de vivre is gone.”

Bruce’s family and friends continue to provide support during his illness. Glenn further stated, “The thing that makes [his disease] so mind-blowing is if you’ve ever spent time with Bruce Willis, there is no one who had any more joie de vivre than he.” According to Bruce’s friend, Bruce used to adore waking up every morning and trying to live life to its fullest. However, now he perceives life as though “seeing life through a screen door.”

Currently, Bruce is under the care of his wife, Emma Heming Willis, with whom he has two daughters. He also maintains a close friendship with his ex-wife, Demi Moore, with whom he has three daughters. The family has offered unwavering support to Bruce amidst his challenging health conditions. In an interview, Bruce’s wife Emma mentioned that it’s “hard to know” if the actor fully comprehends his condition.

Despite their past divorce, Demi Moore and Bruce Willis continue to stand by each other, remaining close friends.
