Bruce Willis and Emma Heming Willis.

Last month, Emma was not happy when reports surfaced suggesting the actor had lost his joy amid his depleting health condition, and she didn't shy away from registering her displeasure on Instagram.

She took to the platform at the time to slam headlines claiming that "there is no more joy" in her husband as he continues to battle with his frontotemporal dementia diagnosis.

"That is far from the truth," she started. "I need society and whoever's writing these stupid headlines to stop scaring people. Stop scaring people to think that once they get a diagnosis of some kind of neurocognitive disease that's it, it's over, let's pack it up, nothing else to see here, we're done. No. It is the complete opposite of that."
