He needs love, affection, nurturing and enjoys being pampered - all of which is fine, as long as Bruce Dern is willing to give as well as receive the attention and "babying". Bruce has a rather childish dependency on loved ones, which can make him cling to them, or be very uncomfortable with any conflict that could conceivably lead to separation.
