Bruce Willis’ wife opened up about being “wound so tight” while the family deals with the actor’s dementia diagnosis. Emma Heming Willis took time for herself while caring for the family and explained why on Instagram.
“Bruce and his masterful mic-drop-one-liners. He would say, ‘He just can’t get out of his own way.’ I never really understood what it meant until it hit me in the face the other day,” she explained. “It’s me. I can’t get out of my own way.”
She added: “I plan, organize, look after everyone and I still rarely make time for me. The kicker came from Evelyn a few days ago when she said, ‘Mom, you need to get out and touch the grass.’ Spoken like her father’s child. I knew what she meant. I’m wound so tight that she sees it, they all feel it. How is that serving anyone.”
