The 68-year-old actor, Bruce Willis, was photographed Sunday in a car wearing a black hoodie for a night out.
In March of this year, Bruce's family announced that he had been diagnosed with frontotemporal dementia (FTD), a rare form of dementia that causes deterioration in behavior, personality and language. Frontotemporal dementia accounts for about 20% of dementia cases and erupts at a relatively young age (45-65).

Last month, Glenn Gordon Krone, who created the sitcom "Detectives by Night," criticized the actor, saying in an interview with Page Six that "my feeling is that in the first few minutes he knows who I am, but he doesn't really talk. All language skills are no longer available to him, but he is still Bruce. When you're with him, you know he's Bruce, but his joie de vivre is gone."
Bruce is cared for by his wife, British model Emma Hemming, with whom he shares his two youngest daughters, 11-year-old Mabel and nine-year-old Evelyn. He also has three grown daughters — Romer, 35, Scout, 32, and Tallulah, 29 — with his ex-wife Demi Moore, who remains friends with both him and her mother.
In a recent interview with TODAY, her mother said, "It's hard to know if Bruce is fully aware of his condition. But his illness taught us all about love, patience and resilience."
