The family of Bruce Willis – including his ex-wife Demi Moore, his daughters, and his wife Emma Heming Willis – have shared moving messages about him on his first Father’s Day since his dementia diagnosis.
His family announced earlier this year that the 68-year-old Hollywood actor had been diagnosed with frontotemporal dementia (FTD), which has affected his ability to communicate.
He had already stepped away from his acting career last year after being diagnosed with aphasia, but his condition progressed after that point.
Bruce’s family have been rallying around the star and sharing beautiful moments from their time together amid his battle with the disease.
And on Father’s Day, his daughters and other loved ones all posted moving tributes to the ‘coolest Daddio a girl could ask for’.
Bruce Willis is the father of five girls, the eldest of which – actress Rumer Willis – recently welcomed her first child, making him a grandfather.
She shared: “Seeing my father hold my daughter today was something I will treasure for the rest of my life. His sweetness and love for her was so pure and beautiful. Papa I’m so lucky to have you and so is Lou. Thank you for being the silliest, most loving, coolest Daddio a girl could ask for. Best Girl Dad in the game….”
Another of his daughters, Scout, posted alongside a photo of Bruce kissing her forehead: “Sending the blessing of this love out to everyone today. I feel so lucky to know the kind of tenderness that this man shares, the deep admiration, respect and reverence he has for his family.
“I feel so lucky that this incredible, vibrant, man is my father. Thinking of everyone for whom today has been challenging and I am loving you with the deepest depths of my heart! What patience, compassion and presence we learn through the greatest challenges in our lives.”
Bruce’s wife Emma, with whom he shared two daughters, wrote: “Father’s Day is a time I get to reflect on my deep appreciation and respect I have for Bruce as I watch him father our little ones. Where it might not be “conventional,” what he’s teaching them will span generations. Unconditional love, kindness, strength, compassion, patience, generosity, resilience.
“Happy Father’s Day to the greatest dad I know, who will forever be the gift that keeps giving within our family.”
And his famous ex-wife Demi Moore shared: “Forever grateful to you BW for giving me these three beautiful girls. We love our #girldad. Happy Father’s Day!”
Timothée Chalamet thinks the sexiest British accent is… Hull?
Hollywood A-lister Timothée Chalamet has revealed the British accents he finds sexiest, and the results are unexpected.
The 27-year-old star of Wonka said that a Hull accent is up there as one of his favourites, along with Italian and French.
How does Timothée Chalamet even know about Hull’s existence, never mind know what the accent sounds like?
The star, who rose to astronomical fame back in 2017 with his portrayal of Elio in Call Me By Your Name, and has since starred in blockbusters such as Dune and Little Woman, revealed his favourite access on the current Wonka press tour, The Hoot reports.
Chalamet appeared on LadBible TV talking to Keegan-Michael Key, where they discuss the internet’s biggest debates.
In a segment where they debate the British accent, Chalamet goes on to reveal his top three British accents… and the answers are not what you would expect.
Firstly he admits his favourite is the Hull accent, he says: “I like the Hull accent. Hull is sexy”.
We’ve never thought of the Hull accent as particularly sexy before, but we will absolutely take it.
He then goes onto say: “I like Hull, Essex is my top three, and I like a middle-aged Yorkshire accent.”
We’re not sure the difference between a Yorkshire and a middle-aged Yorkshire accent, but what Timothée wants then Timothée will get.
In the comments, one person said: “I’m from Hull and nobody in Hull likes the Hull accent lol.”
Another joked: “suddenly i have the hull accent.”
And someone else wrote: “good day to have a hull accent.”
So thank you Timmy, we’d have to say that we wholeheartedly agree and that our accent is in fact, the sexiest of them all.
Next time we’d like to see you attempt a Yorkshire accent on the big screen, because we’re sure you’d absolutely smash it.
Sir David Jason set for TV return in Only Fools and Horses documentary Christmas special
In a surprise bit of festive news, the only and only Sir David Jason is returning for an Only Fools and Horses Christmas special this December. Lovely jubbly!
The best-loved and most-watched British comedy of all time will be back on our screens in documentary form this festive season, with Del Boy himself David Jason revisiting the iconic comedy character after 20 years he last played him on screen.
While the legendary sitcom was broadcast on BBC back in the day, the highly-anticipated Only Fools doc will be airing on Channel 5 right before Christmas as a special one-off programme.
Looking back on the show’s incredible run on UK screens over seven series and the several ‘Christmas Cracker’ specials, specifically, the latest Only Fools and Horses documentary will see Jason and a number of other guests appearing to chat about the legendary show.
While it’s still unclear how many of the original cast will be appearing, Jason’s on-screen wife Tessa Peake-Jones (Raquel) is confirmed to be appearing along with other special guests including newscaster Krishnan Guru-Murthy and Bendiorm‘s Sherrie Hewson.
Sadly, a full theatrical reunion just isn’t on the cards following the deaths of Roger Lloyd Pack (Trigger), Kenneth MacDonald (Mike the Landlord) and Buster Merryfield (Uncle Albert) in the 30 years since the show ended its run.
Only Fools writer John Sullivan also sadly passed away aged 64 in 2011 and fellow co-star Nicholas Lyndhurst, a.k.a. Rodney Trotter, told Metro: “We can’t. John is no longer with us. John was the driving force of the show and we have also lost quite a few cast members now.
“I don’t think I could do it without them and I certainly couldn’t do it without John. At the risk of depressing everyone, I think the last two times I’ve seen David has been at funerals.”
Simply entitled, ‘The Story Of Only Fools And Horses At Christmas’, the 90-minute special is yet to have its broadcast date fully confirmed but you best keep your eyes peeled on the TV guide — we’ll let you know as soon we do.
Jason, 81, has only just recovered from hip surgery earlier this year, so it’ll be nice to see his familiar grin back on our screens.
Right, we’re off to binge a whole series on UK Gold.
