From gipping action scenes to charismatic performances, Bruce Willis has solidified his status as a Hollywood icon, captivating audiences with his versatile talent and magnetic presence. However, behind all this glamour lies a man who has faced many challenges both in his life and on the silver screen.

He was forced to step away from his illustrious acting career following the latter’s initial aphasia diagnosis earlier last year. A subsequent update on the condition revealed that Willis was, in fact, suffering from Frontotemporal Dementia (FTD), an incurable disease.
