In an exclusive interview with 'In Touch,' on newsstands now, Rumer Willis, daughter of Hollywood heavyweights Bruce Willis and Demi Moore, opens up about years of being tormented and bullied over her looks.
“My mom is a stunning woman, and everyone compared me to her,” the Dancing With the Stars competitor shares with 'In Touch.' “They said I looked like a man and called me ‘potato head.’ People were nasty.”
Rumer adds, at the time “I was awkward. I didn’t feel comfortable with how I looked.”

Today, her self-confidence has grown, but that doesn't mean the bullying has stopped.
Rumer tells 'In Touch,' “People still say mean things about how I look, how I dress. Those are their opinions and that’s great. I just don’t want to hear them.”
Her high 'DWTS' scores with partner Val Chmerkovskiy have helped improve her self-esteem. Rumer tells the mag, “I’ve never felt more beautiful.”
“Not everyone is going to like you,” she says. “But you can’t let that change how you feel about yourself.”
