Bruce Willis diagnosed with dementia
Bruce Willis’ wife Emma shared sweet memories from the Met Gala.
She posted archived photographs as A-list stars gathered at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art on Monday.
The Die Hard legend, 68, was understandably absent from this year’s celebrations due to his declining health and dementia diagnosis.
He retired from acting after being diagnosed with aphasia, all before doctors found out he had frontotemporal dementia.
Emma and Bruce appear happier than ever in the throwback snaps, smiling as they walked the red carpet during their appearance back in 2009.
Sharing the pictures to her Instagram Story, Emma wrote: “He’s a fun date.”
At the time, Emma turned heads in a dazzling, plunging black gown for that year’s theme “Model Of Muse: Embodying Fashion”.
Bruce cut a classy figure in a fitted black tuxedo, complete with a buttoned-up shirt and bowtie.
It was in February this year that the actor’s family revealed his declining health had progressed in an emotional social media statement.
Emma, Bruce’s ex-wife Demi Moore and his five daughters posted a message on The Association for Frontotemporal Degeneration’s website.

Their devastating update read: “We wanted to give you an update about our beloved husband, father and friend since we now have a deeper understanding of what he is experiencing.
“Since we announced Bruce’s diagnosis of aphasia in 2022, Bruce’s condition has progressed and we now have a more specific diagnosis: frontotemporal dementia (known as FTD).
“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.”
The family’s statement continued: “FTD is a cruel disease that many of us have never heard of and can strike anyone.”
