Bruce Willis’ Daughter Tallulah Recently Was Diagnosed As An Adult, And We Are Devastated

Tallulah Willis, daughter of Bruce Willis, has publicly shared that she was diagnosed with autism as an adult. At 30 years old, Tallulah chose a unique and subtle way to reveal her diagnosis by posting a childhood video on Instagram, where she is seen interacting playfully with her father on the red carpet.

In the video, young Tallulah touches Bruce’s head and plays with his ears while he speaks to a reporter. She humorously captioned the post, “tell me your autistic without telling me your autistic 😂,” which prompted curiosity and support from her followers. Responding to a comment asking if she was diagnosed as a child, Tallulah revealed, “Actually this is the first time I’ve ever publicly shared my diagnosis. Found out this summer and it’s changed my life.”

The post received positive reactions, with many noting her stimming behavior—repetitive movements often associated with autism. Supporters praised Bruce Willis for his nonchalant reaction in the video, highlighting his supportive nature. Comments ranged from admiration of the sweet father-daughter memory to appreciation for Tallulah’s openness about her neurodiversity, describing it as a contribution to making the world a better place.

Tallulah has previously written about her struggles with mental health issues, including depression, anorexia nervosa, ADHD, and borderline personality disorder. Her journey through these challenges, especially amid her father’s health decline due to frontotemporal dementia, has been marked by periods of denial and avoidance. However, her diagnosis and subsequent recovery have empowered her to better support her father during his health struggles.
