But it was not a lack of attention or affection that alienated her from her father, But aphasia – the inability to use or understand language – would later be reinterpreted as one of the first symptoms of frontotemporal dementia. “A progressive neurological disorder that eats away at your cognitive ability every day,” Tallulah said.
Forced to seek aphasia diagnosis, “But I already knew for a long time that something was wrong” The youngest daughter of Demi Moore and Bruce Willis was added to spin hints of her father’s condition, which began at least four years ago.
,It began as a subtle form of unresponsiveness, which the family attributed to Hollywood hearing loss., ‘Talk louder! ‘Die Hard’ ruined Dad’s ears,” she recalled. The “lack of attention” became widespread and at one point the young woman realized that it was not something personal with her but something in general.
Bruce Willis, 68, is set to retire from Hollywood in 2022 after a decades-long career as a leading man and action man.

“While my sisters and my mother have the toolkit—lots of psychological and interpersonal relations education—my dad was never very interested in the vet’s cause. Perhaps he is the type of conservative father of a generation, a man of actions, who if he had understood (the situation) could have intervened to say: ‘It ends here’. His style has always been to fix a leak, even if he doesn’t know why it’s leaking. There are certainly benefits to analyzing, but There’s a beauty in the way he is and I don’t think I realized it until he was able to“, he expressed.
Today, on the road to recovery and under the care of her father, Tallulah Willis says she is like an “archaeologist.” Every time she visits her father’s house, her “daddio” takes pictures and Tries to collect as many as possible. The “Die Hard” actor’s recollections volume.
