My condolences over the fate of Bruce Willis after it was announced that the actor suffers from aphasia. But the diagnosis turned her life upside down because of the diagnosis, Emma Heming Willis, wife of the 67-year-old, now explains.
Hollywood icon Bruce Willis has been diagnosed with aphasia, a shock to many. But she also suffers, as the actor’s wife, Emma Hemming Willis, explained in a conversation with the American portal “The Bump”.
The former model says that every day she finds it difficult to take time out for her well-being. “I put my family’s needs before my own,” explains the 43-year-old. But that doesn’t make her a hero: “It didn’t help anyone in my family.”
Emma Hemming Willis says that the level of care for everyone in her home ultimately affected her mental and general health. Someone told her, “If you care too much about someone, you will end up caring less about yourself.” This made her think. Its primary need is movement. “This is the time when I can stop working and do something,” notes the mother of two. It is important to find something that makes you feel good. Then you can build on that.
Bruce Willis’ good old fashioned
Emma Hemming Willis says her husband’s job has been a challenge for her in the past. After the birth of her first daughter, she traveled a lot. “My husband signed on to three films that took us around the world, in good old Bruce Willis style, in the first year.” But looking back, this time in her life was perfect. Meanwhile, the family had to go through a lot.
Bruce Willis’ family – his wife, ex-wife Demi Moore and children – shared a statement on Instagram in March 2022. They added that the Hollywood star had to end his acting career at the age of 67. The reason for this is the diagnosis of aphasia.
Aphasia is a speech disorder caused by brain damage. Affected people may have problems speaking and understanding language, including reading and writing.
Bruce Willis was married to Demi Moore from 1987 to 2000. Together they have daughters Rumer (33), Scout (30), and Tallulah (28). In 2009, he married his current wife, with whom he has two more daughters, Mabel (10) and Evelyn (8).
