Bruce Willis and his family have faced a series of challenges in recent months. The A-list actor, diagnosed with frontotemporal dementia, decided to retire from acting due to the impact of his illness on his ability to communicate. His daughter, Scout, expressed being “a bit overwhelmed” in a touching letter after the dementia diagnosis was made public in February 2023.
However, the family’s struggles didn’t end there. Tallulah, Bruce and Demi Moore’s daughter, reportedly battled with anorexia following her breakup with fiancé Dillon Buss, just three months after Bruce’s aphasia diagnosis. Sources revealed that Bruce witnessed Tallulah’s suffering, exacerbating his own problems. The situation reached a point where the family considered it better for them not to be around each other.
Tallulah opened up about her struggles, disclosing that she entered a residential treatment center and was diagnosed with BPD (borderline personality disorder). She acknowledged the initial allure of rapid weight loss but recognized its detrimental effects on her health. By spring 2022, she weighed around 84 lbs, experiencing severe physical and emotional challenges.
The family’s ordeal highlights the complexity of their circumstances, with both Bruce’s deteriorating health and Tallulah’s battle with anorexia adding layers of difficulty. The hope is that Tallulah receives the necessary care to overcome her challenges. The combination of dealing with her father’s health problems and her own issues undoubtedly presents a profound and challenging situation for the 29-year-old.
In the face of these trials, the Willis family’s journey reflects the resilience required when grappling with significant health issues and underscores the importance of understanding and support for individuals facing such circumstances.
