New photos of Bruce Willis since dementia diagnosis showing him appearing confused

The Die Hard star's family — wife Emma Heming Willis, their children, Mabel, 10, and Evelyn, 8, ex-wife Demi Moore and their children Rumer Willis, 34, Scout Willis, 31, and Tallulah Willis, 29 — have been focused on helping him "live as full a life as possible," according to a statement from the family.

"The focus for Bruce is to keep him active. He has a busy schedule with activities every day. They make sure both his body and brain is exercised," a family source tells PEOPLE in this week's issue. The family gave an update on the 67-year-old actor's health in a statement on Thursday, 11 months after they disclosed he was diagnosed with aphasia, a language disorder affecting his cognitive abilities.

"Since we announced Bruce's diagnosis of aphasia in spring 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 statement continues.

"Bruce always believed in using his voice in the world to help others, and to raise awareness about important issues both publicly and privately. We know in our hearts that – if he could today — he would want to respond by bringing global attention and a connectedness with those who are also dealing with this debilitating disease and how it impacts so many individuals and their families."

Bruce Willis’s David Addison was hilarious, charming, witty, bold, chivalrous, street smart, and most importantly, he could laugh at himself. David Addison was amazing. Everyone wanted to be David Addison. He was cool. He was his own man. And for the next decade—along with other cool, self-deprecating personalities like Don Johnson’s Sonny Crockett—Bruce Willis would define American masculinity. This made the 80s and 90s a great time to be a man…and a woman.

Ask Demi Moore about that. Bruce Willis won Demi Moore when she was at peak Demi Moore, when she was the hottest thing that ever walked the planet. And he won her permanently. They divorced, but she’s still around, helping him through his third act. That makes her a beauty in more ways than one.

While Moonlighting was still on the air, and to the surprise of no one, the movies came calling, and what followed were a couple of stinkers from a late-era Blake Edwards: Blind Date (1987) and Sunset (1988). I was already a Bruce Willis fan, so I saw both. They were awful. Nevertheless, it would take more than two duds to dull my certainty Bruce Willis would become THE movie star in an era full of movie stars… And then along came Die Hard (1988).
