She won Season 20 of “Dancing With the Stars” and looks like a face-smash of her star parents, Bruce Willis and Demi Moore. One of her biggest personal accomplishments, however, turns out to be her new-found sobriety.
Rumer Willis was born quite literally in the spotlight as the eldest daughter of Willis and Moore, who had a cameraman hired to film Rumer’s birth. Now 28, she has not previously acknowledged issues with drugs or alcohol, according to reports. Her younger sister Tallulah attended a 45-day rehab program for substance abuse and an eating disorder back in 2014; but, as far as most knew, Rumer did not share these problems.
That is, until Rumer posted on Instagram that she was celebrating “6 Months of Sobriety.”
Her post was optimistic and positive and she ended it by saying that she didn’t necessarily plan to become sober but that she has “never been more proud of myself in my entire life. Thank you all for the love and support and remember to be gentle with yourself.”
Father Bruce was the face of Seagrams’ Golden Wine Coolers in the 80s until he ended the contract upon his own decision to quit drinking alcohol in 1988.
While Rumer’s mother, Demi, appears to have had no personal struggles with alcohol or drugs, her mother, Virginia Guynes had a criminal record including drunk driving. Moore reportedly cut off her mother in 1990 when Guynes refused a rehab stay that Moore had paid for.
Rumer has starred alongside both of her parents in a few films and has been fostering her own acting career for the past few years. She was cast as Roxie Hart in the Broadway musical Chicago and played the role from September 21 to November 1, 2015. Most recently she can be seen on Empire.
