Tallulah Willis: Bruce Willis’ daughter announces autism diagnosis

Tallulah Willis: Bruce Willis’ daughter announces autism diagnosis

She has already spoken about her depression and eating disorders, now Tallulah Willis has shared another diagnosis with the public. Actor Bruce Willis’ daughter has been diagnosed with autism.

Tallulah Willis revealed on Instagram that she was diagnosed with autism. The daughter of action hero Bruce Willis and actress Demi Moore published a short video on her account that shows her as a young girl with her famous father. The recording appears to have been taken in 2004 at the film premiere of “No Half Measures 2 – Now Especially!” to have been created in Los Angeles. Tallulah was ten years old at the time. While Bruce Willis answers questions from journalists, his daughter strokes his head and kneads his ear. “Tell me you’re autistic without saying you’re autistic,” the 30-year-old captioned the clip.

Tallulah Willis was diagnosed with autism in the summer of 2023

The post received numerous comments from her approximately 400,000 followers. Many praised Tallulah Willis for her courage in going public with the diagnosis. A fan wanted to know whether she was diagnosed with autism when she was a child. The American then replied: “Honestly, it’s the first time I’ve shared my diagnosis with the public. I found out in the summer and it changed my life.”

This isn’t the first time Tallulah Willis has spoken publicly about her health. In May last year, she published an essay in the US edition in which she revealed the demons she was struggling with. In her twenties, she was diagnosed with depression, then ADHD, anorexia, and later borderline personality disorder. “While I was dealing with my body dysmorphia and flaunting it on Instagram, my dad was struggling in silence,” she wrote at the time.

Bruce Willis suffers from a rare form of dementia. In February 2023, the family made the illness public. In her Vogue essay, Tallulah Willis revealed that she was initially too ill to support her father. Instead, she often took his behavior personally and began to doubt herself again, thinking: “I’m not beautiful enough for my mother, I’m not interesting enough for my father.”

She has now accepted that her father is ill and is trying to make as many memories as possible. It is certainly no coincidence that Tallulah Willis chose a recording session with her father to talk about her autism diagnosis.
