Bruce Willis’ close friend gives devastating update about actor’s health

Glenn Gordon Caron, a close friend and esteemed American writer known for his association with the actor from the ‘ᴅɪᴇ Hard’ franchise, has expressed concerns about the actor’s waning enthusiasm for life since his diagnosis of dementia


The news about Willis’ health challenges initially came to light last year when his family disclosed his diagnosis of aphasia. However, in February 2023, they provided an update revealing that his condition had progressed to frontotemporal dementia (FTD), which can lead to difficulties with behavior and language.

As a result, Willis has decided to retire from acting and has chosen to largely retreat from the public spotlight. Nonetheless, Caron, the creative mind behind the popular ’80s series ‘Moonlighting’, has emphasized that Willis finds solace in knowing that auᴅɪᴇnces can still delight in his past performances.

In an interview with the New York Post, Caron shared that he is delighted that the iconic series ‘Moonlighting’ is now available for streaming on Hulu. According to Caron, although Willis is unable to express his happiness directly, he knows that Willis is genuinely pleased about the show’s availability. During their occasional meetings, they have discussed it, and Caron senses Willis’ excitement.

Caron diligently makes an effort to visit Willis every month or so, although he acknowledges that maintaining a consistent schedule can be challenging. He is also friends with Willis’ wife, Emma Heming Willis, as well as his three older daughters.

“I’ve made a sincere effort to remain a part of his life. He’s an extraordinary individual,” Caron expressed. The impact of Willis’ ᴅɪsᴇᴀsᴇ is particularly striking considering that, in Caron’s words, if you’ve ever spent time with Bruce Willis, you would know that there was no one who exuded more zest for life. Willis cherished every moment and approached each day with boundless enthusiasm.

Caron further described Willis as an “amazing guy” and suggested that there are still moments when Willis recognizes him, even though his perception of the world is now akin to looking through a screen door.


Caron further expressed, “In his presence, you can still recognize that he is Bruce, and you cherish his presence. However, the vibrant zest for life that once defined him has faded away.”

When Willis’ family announced the progression of his ᴅɪsᴇᴀsᴇ earlier this year, they expressed deep gratitude for the support and care they have received during this challenging period.

“We have been profoundly touched by the love and support you have all shown for our beloved husband, father, and friend during this difficult time,” the family conveyed. “Your ongoing compassion, understanding, and respect will enable us to help Bruce live the fullest life possible.”

Our heartfelt thoughts and prayers go out to Bruce Willis, his family, his friends, and his devoted fans.
