Ever since Bruce Willis was diagnosed with Frontotemporal Dementia, fans, peers and well-wishers have been sending in their love and support to the actor and his extended family. This news comes as a big blow after his earlier diagnosis of aphasia, a medical condition that can affect a person’s ability to speak, write, and understand verbal and written language. Following this, the action star officially announced that he will retire from his acting career.

The paparazzi have had a volatile relationship with celebrities worldwide and Bruce Willis seems to be no exception. In a rare instance recently, the actor was spotted walking with two friends on the streets of Santa Monica, possibly to grab a cup of coffee. During this time, he was swarmed and cornered by the paparazzi in an attempt to ask him questions regarding his health condition. They were fortunately thwarted by Bruce Willis’s friends, who did their best to protect him. As a result, the paparazzi were only able to take a few pictures of the celebrity.

According to sources, the action star was thrown off by the sudden appearance of the paparazzi, looking uneasy and confused by their ambush. He apparently failed to respond to his friend who called his name during the incident. This could be an indicator that the illness is slowly but surely affecting The Sixth Sense star. The last time he was seen in the public eye was in January when he was out having lunch with a few close friends

The love-hate relationship between stars and the paparazzi continues

Dealing with the paparazzi comes with its own set of challenges. While they are instrumental in making actors into celebrities, they can also be ruthless in their pursuit of star gossip, overlooking basic concerns like invasion of privacy and health-related issues. The incident with Bruce Willis is a classic example of how the paparazzi can be thoughtless and ignorant about the private lives of actors. We only need to go back a few years to the debacle of Princess Diana and Dodi-Al-Fayed to realize that nothing much has changed with the paparazzi and their intentions to force themselves into the private lives of stars. Despite these disturbances, the Willis family has exuded positivity and have thanked their well-wishers, fans, and peers stating,


“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”.

Paparazzi or not, it remains to be seen how much of an impact Bruce Willis’s debilitating condition will have on him. Fans and admirers from around the world will be hoping for a miracle of sorts to see their favorite action star back on the screen.
