The retired actor's wife brought their youngest daughters to visit Willis' Walk of Fame star and his wax statue in Madame Tussauds.
Bruce Willis has dominated the big screens for decades. The "Die Hard" actor who was known for his action roles in Hollywood might have retired at the age of 68 but his family is still proud of his presence and achievements. Willis' youngest daughters, Mabel, 11 and Evelyn, 9 recently took a trip with their mom, Emma Heming Willis to witness the mark their famous father left in the film industry, per Cinema Blend.
45-year-old Heming Willis shared a reel and a bunch of shots from their trip to California, documenting when the mother-daughter trio snapped a picture at Hollywood Boulevard, surrounding the Walk of Fame star received by the retired actor. Their next stop was Madame Tussauds Museum which houses several wax figurines of notable celebrities and famous personalities, including a statue of Willis.

Willis' wax figure is made to replicate the actor's iconic role of John McClane in the "Die Hard" film franchise. The statue stands dramatically with a cut on his face, wearing a gun holster while standing in front of burning buildings just like his character from the film. Willis' daughter can't help but flash a big smile while giving it a wide-eyed look of admiration. Evelyn even turns to her mom, who is recording the video, to exclaim, "Guys, it's Dad!" She then waves a finger in front of the figure's face and goes, "You better be on your best behavior!"

In the overlay text of the Instagram video, Heming Willis wrote, "When in Hollywood" and also tagged Madame Tussauds Hollywood's official account. The mother of two also shared a throwback picture from 2018 where she had taken her daughters to visit Willis' wax figure for the first time. "We've done this before," she wrote in the caption.
The Heming-Willis family might make it an annual tradition to visit the actor's wax figure since the young girls can't contain their excitement every time they stand in front of their father in wax.
According to CNN, the actor retired from his long acting career after he was diagnosed with frontotemporal dementia and aphasia. "Since we announced Bruce’s diagnosis of aphasia in spring 2022, Bruce’s condition has progressed," the Willis family announced in a statement. "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 Association for Frontotemporal Degeneration further wrote about Willis' condition which read: "The most common dementia for people under 60, FTD can cause challenges in communication, as well as changes to one’s behavior, personality or movement."
