Rumer Willis Opens Up About Struggling With Bullies And Being Called ‘Potato Head’ As A Teen

Growing up with famous parents means having a spotlight on you 24/7. For Rumer Willis, that attention was often particularly cruel.

Having been in Hollywood since she was 15, Rumer went through her awkward teen years in front of the cameras.

And while people are awful now, the tabloids were especially disgusting back in the early 2000's.

The eldest daughter of the former power couple Bruce Willis and Demi Moore, Rumer was targeted by mean-spirited bloggers who ruthlessly picked apart her appearance.

I'm looking at you, Perez Hilton.

In an interview with "Huffington Post" Rumer opened up about that time in her life and the impact the bullying had on her emotionally.

“When you’re 14 or 15, I didn’t really understand having value in myself yet," she said.

"My mind went to, ‘OK, so if I get skinny or if I dress the right way or present myself very hyper-sexually and dress this way, then I’ll be valued.’”

"They said I had a huge jaw. They said I had a ′potato head,’” Rumer recalled.

Which is... SO RUDE.

“I still deal with insecurity and trying to figure out my own path in all of it."

Rumer said she has found strength and inspiration from her parents.

“I definitely talked to my mom, and her thing was always, you can’t read the comments,” Rumer said.

“You could post the most beautiful picture about how you’ve gone and you’re helping kids or you’re giving your time and someone will still find a way to rag on you.”

These days, Rumer's focus is making others embrace their beauty and uniqueness.
