Bruce Willis Walking Away From Acting After Aphasia Diagnosis

In 2022, Bruce Willis’ family announced that the actor was diagnosed with Aphasia, a language disorder that affects a person’s ability to communicate. Following this, the family also announced that the actor would be stepping away from acting. In February of this year, however, the family released a statement that revealed that Willis’ condition had progressed to frontotemporal dementia. Though this diagnosis was difficult for them, they were glad to be clear about what the actor’s condition was.

“Since we announced Bruce’s diagnosis of aphasia in spring 2022, Bruce’s condition has progressed and we now have a more specific diagnosis: frontotemporal dementia (known as FTD),” a family statement reads. “Unfortunately, challenges with communication are just one symptom of the disease Bruce faces. While this is painful, it is a relief to finally have a clear diagnosis.” 

They added that they are trying their best to keep the actor happy and comfortable. They also stated that they will continue to be public about his health, to raise awareness about the condition. They also added that Willis would want nothing more than to use his voice to help others who are struggling like him.
