(Charles Sykes / Invision / AP)Emma Heming Willis made a plea Saturday to paparazzi who chase down her husband, Bruce Willis, who was recently diagnosed with frontotemporal dementia. In an effort to raise "awareness around dementia," Heming Willis posted a video on Instagram asking photographers and videographers to stop shouting at the "Die Hard" star while he's spending time with loved ones in public. Willis' family revealed in February that the actor's "condition has progressed" since he was diagnosed last Spring with aphasia — "just one symptom of the disease Bruce faces." Heming Willis' remarks were provoked by recent headlines and a video of her husband "getting some coffee with some friends that did a stand-up job with protecting him."
