Rumer Willis opens up about having famous parents


Rumer Willis has opened up to Us Weekly and admitted how difficult it was having famous parents when she was growing up.

Speaking about her mother, Demi Moore, Rumer said: "I compared myself to her. I would go: 'My mom wears smaller jeans than me! Oh, God. Maybe I'm not skinny enough.' Every girl looks up to her mother, but my mom was larger-than-life and I felt I could never be like her. I just didn't feel like we were even the same caliber."

She said: "Every time I went out in public and was photographed, people had something to say about how I looked. The worse things I read were that I looked like a man, or simply that I was ugly. Any time I looked good, a story would say I had plastic surgery. Because God forbid I just looked good being me!"

The 26-year-old said she tried to ignore the criticism, but it was difficult when her parents were all over the media.

"I didn't know how to ask for help. My mom would sometimes see what was happening and her advice was, 'Don't let that infect you. People are going to have opinions. You don't have to make them yours.'"

Rumer went on to say how her sisters, 21-year-old Tallulah Belle, and 23-year-old Scout LaRue, are her best friends, so this definitely must have helped her through the difficult times.
