Bruce Willis’ daughter Tallulah explains why family are so open with his dementia and gives update on actor's condition

Bruce Willis’ daughter Tallulah explains why family are so open with his dementia and gives update on actor's condition

Tallulah Willis, who followed in her father's footsteps to become an actress, gave fans an update on Bruce's condition.

Bruce Willis' daughter Tallulah has revealed the reason why her family has been so open about the actor's dementia diagnosis.

The 29-year-old, who followed in her father's footsteps to become an actress, also gave fans an update on his condition.

Bruce, 68, was diagnosed with frontotemporal dementia in February, following his aphasia diagnosis last year.

His loved ones have been open and honest about his health status since they announced he would be 'stepping away' from acting in 2022.

The Die Hard star has been struggling with communication and his language skills, forcing him to give up his illustrious career.

While navigating Bruce's declining condition, Tallulah said she has become an 'archeologist to her dad's world'.

During an appearance on The Drew Barrymore Show, she explained why her family aren't keeping his health struggles a secret.

Tallulah told Drew: "I think it's twofold. On one hand, it's who we are as a family, but also, it's really important for us to spread awareness about FTD.

"If we can take something that we're struggling with as a family, and individually, to help other people, to turn it around to make something beautiful about it, that's really special for us.

"And part of what’s been a really beautiful way for me to heal through this is becoming like an archeologist to my dad's stuff - his world - to his little trinkets and doo-das."

Bruce and Demi Moore's youngest daughter said she and her sisters connect with their father through music and 'sitting in this energy of love'.

Tallulah then told Drew that the Glass actor's condition hasn't changed.

She said: "He is the same...which I think, in this regard, I've learned is the best thing that you can ask for.

"And what I see is love when I am with him. And it's my dad and he loves me."

In the episode which aired on Wednesday, Tallulah said she was extremely proud of how her family had 'blended together in this beautiful tapestry of wonderful female energy'.

Bruce also shares daughters Rumer, 35, and Scout, 32, with ex-wife Demi, as well as Mabel, 11, and Evelyn, nine, with his wife Emma Willis.

Tallulah discussed the importance of making 'space for the negative self talk' rather than 'trying to eradicate it'.

She continued: "I can just say, 'Okay, I see you. I understand why you're coming up and you're going to go over here'.

'Versus completely gutting myself over and over...and then with that, I've been able to find a lot of love for myself, which is really special."
