Once upon a time, Demi Moore and Bruce Willis were the “IT” couple of Hollywood.
Both of them were hugely popular all over the world and starred in Hollywood blockbusters.
Everyone thought their story was over when they divorced, but even after over two decades, they remain close.
Demi Moore and Bruce Willis have never spoken badly of one another, even after their divorce. Demi Moore’s divorce from actor Bruce Willis is an under-discussed part of her life that she opens up about in her explosive memoir “Inside Out.”
“It’s a funny thing to say, but I’m very proud of our divorce,” Moore writes in her book. Moore’s “anger and whatever baggage” she had from their time together, she said, made Willis nervous that things would go violent.
Like many others, Willis probably anticipated that their divorce would be heated. Moore retorted, “But I didn’t, and neither did he.” when told he would employ negative tactics.
Moore and Esteves met at the opening of his film “Stakeout” in Los Angeles, where she was accompanying her then-boyfriend Emilio Esteves.
Moore, who was married to Freddy Moore from 1981 to 1985, began dating Willis shortly after they met at a movie premiere.
Rumer Willis, their grown daughter, looks just like her parents.
A family update claims that Bruce Willis has been diagnosed with dementia.
A new, heartfelt video from Bruce Willis and Emma Heming has been released after the actor’s diagnosis.
The couple married after a “whirlwind” courtship that lasted only four months.
They got married in Las Vegas on a whim on November 21st, 1987. After hearing the news, they took the decision to start a family for the first time.
Willis brought up Moore’s wedding when they were on their way to the casino. The action star brought it up again when they arrived at the casino, and Moore could tell he was not budging.
Rumer was born in 1988, Scout in 1991, and Tallulah in 1996; all three of their daughters were born within a few years of each other.
She revealed in her autobiography that the couple had stopped caring about one other in favor of having children.
Moore claims, “I think both of us were more passionate about having kids than we were about being married from the beginning.”
In spite of this, the couple spent less and less time together as their marriage deteriorated.
They separated in 1998 after several years of marriage. It was also revealed that they had been leading separate lives for some time before they decided to go public with the news.
In the same year that he and Demi Moore finalized their divorce, Willis said that he still loved his ex-wife and that they were both committed to doing what was best for their kids.
Willis has been very open about his continued feelings for Demi. “I still love Demi,” Willis declared. “We are really near. […] I believe we’re as close as we’ve ever been.”
After breaking up, they both went on to find new partners. When Moore began dating other men, Willis noticed a change in his mood.
He says that actor Will Smith was responsible for a shift in his thinking. He shared how Smith had urged Willis to foster harmonious relationships for the sake of the kids.
Willis and Emma Heming wed in 2009, and since then they’ve welcomed two kids, Evelyn and Mabel. Moore and actor Ashton Kutcher tied the knot in 2005, but they divorced four years later.
The couple formed a mixed family and maintained close relationships with one other. Despite this, Kutcher and Willis became good friends.
In 2009, Willis addressed the media about her blended family, describing how they maintained their close relationship.
He said, “Demi and I made a choice to put the kids first, and we’re lucky that it turns out we all have fun together.”
When it comes to the kids, the exes always put on a united front. Both of Rumers’s parents watched her performance on “Dancing with the Stars” and cheered her on the whole time.
Demi Moore attended Bruce Willis’ 2014 Comedy Central Roast, too. Moore publicly thanked Willis for her “blended family” in March of 2022.
She posted an Instagram message reading, “Happy Birthday, Bruce!” to wish the actor a joyous occasion. I’m grateful for the blended family we’ve created.
Bruce Willis’s aphasia, a communication disability, was revealed to the public shortly afterward by his family.
In a joint statement, Moore, Heming, and their children also revealed Willis’ sickness and his decision to discontinue his acting career.
In February of 2023, Moore provided an update to Willis in which he said that Willis was now being treated for frontotemporal dementia (FTD).
In a letter to her ex-husband, she lamented, “Unfortunately, challenges with communication are just one symptom of the disease Bruce faces,” The letter was accompanied by a photo of her former spouse relaxing on the beach. They were upset, she remarked, but at least they knew what they were up against.
The family also released a statement on the website of The Association for Frontotemporal Degeneration, which provides additional information about the disease.
In adults under the age of 60, this condition “is the most frequent kind of dementia.” The process of diagnosis might sometimes take several years.
Bruce’s sickness has no known cure, so the family is trying to raise awareness of it.
The family believes that if Bruce were healthy, he would have wanted to raise more awareness about the issue, therefore they will do it in his stead.
In addition, they thanked everyone who had shown support, writing, “We have been so moved by the love you have all shared for our dear husband, father, and friend during this difficult time.”
The family has remained close even through Bruce’s illness.Copy
Moore and Heming are now Willis’ primary caregivers, and the blended family has even dubbed themselves the “Ladies of Willis/Moore.”
Willis and Moore are still very close after 13 years have passed since their divorce and Willis’ second marriage. As a matter of fact, Moore thinks of his two daughters with Heming as members of her own “family.”
Both the couple’s wedding in 2009 and their vow renewal ceremony ten years later were attended by Moore. “She welcomed me into her family like I welcomed her into ours,” Heming said.
Rumer Willis also gives credit to her parents for raising her with an emphasis on civility.
She recalled how her friends whose parents were divorced had to make difficult decisions as children, but she had never had to do so.
