Demi Moore choked up as she watched her daughter Rumer Willis on Dancing With The Stars. With the theme of the night dedicated to each dancer’s most memorable year, Rumer danced emotionally and later shared her reasons, reported Life and Style.
After years of bullying about her body, Rumer named 2014 as the year when she decided to ignore the body-shaming and own herself. She revealed how growing up with Demi and Bruce Willis as her parents had put her in the public spotlight and made her feel particularly vulnerable during the already-challenging teenage years.
“When you grow up with parents that are known worldwide and having so much attention from media and all of the tabloid magazines, it’s really tough. When I was a teenager I was super awkward, I don’t think I really felt comfortable in my body or with how I looked and people were nasty. My Mom who is one of the most stunning women I’ve ever met and who everyone was comparing me to, saying that you look more like your very masculine father than your beautiful Mom.”
At one point, Rumer admits that she even considered plastic surgery.
“For years I thought ‘Maybe I can get plastic surgery. If I change my face or get really skinny, that will be it, that will be the answer’ and it’s not,” emphasized Willis.
As Demi watched her daughter dance with partner Val Chmerkovskiy, she choked up with pride and emotion.
Others showing their support for Rumer were her sister Tallulah Willis and actress Glen Close, reported Us Weekly.
And Rumer revealed that Tallulah helped her become honest.
“My sister Tallulah was in rehab and I was inspired because she didn’t try to hide from it. She really owned it.”
In addition, Willis said that she is close to her sister Scout as well as half-sisters Evelyn and Mabel. The younger girls are the offspring of Bruce Willis and his wife Emma Heming.
“We kind of have this infectious laughter where one of us starts laughing and the other one will go and it just kind of continues,” admitted Rumer. “I’m honestly probably the most grateful that I have such an incredibly strong bond with my two sisters that are older and I hope that one day you know all five of us can really have that.”
As the Inquisitr reported, Rumer also revealed how her body has changed since beginning the long rehearsals required for Dancing With The Stars.
“My body has] definitely changed from dancing five or six hours a day. It’s pretty tough when you’re jumping up and down and shaking it everywhere,” she laughed.
