RUMER WILLIS CHATS WITH 'LARRY KING NOW' ON ORA.TV
Rumer Willis With Larry King
Rumer Willis – actor, singer, and child to Hollywood's former first couple, Bruce Willis and Demi Moore – joins Larry King on the Emmy nominated series “Larry King Now” to discuss her turn on Season 20 of ‘Dancing with the Stars’, why women's rights haven't come far enough, and what the world doesn't know about her parents.
‘Dancing With The Stars’ contestant Rumer Willis gave Larry the scoop on season 20 and her partner Val Chmerkovskiy. “I think it’s going to be his year. Sometimes when you’re doing a show that’s a reality version of ballroom dancing, it can become more about the costumes or the show you put on, but what I really like about him is he really cares about the dancing and keeping the integrity of what you’re actually doing. He’s definitely a strict teacher, though.” On the training process, Rumer told Larry, “We try and get at least four or five hours of rehearsal in a day.”
The daughter of Hollywood stars Bruce Willis and Demi Moore opened up to Larry about the time surrounding her parents split, “I am so thankful and grateful that my parents made such an effort at that time. You know, I never had to split up vacations or split up birthdays. They always made an effort to do all of the family events still together. They made such an effort to still have our family be as one unit as opposed to two separate things.” Plus, on life in the tabloids, Rumer said “If you want to judge me, I’m totally fine with that. And if you don’t like me—but just take five minutes to get to know me, and if after that your opinion stays the same and you don’t like me, then that’s your prerogative.”
Supporter of the Free the Nipple campaign Rumer Willis discussed with Larry her thoughts on inequality towards women, “If our total value of men in the world was based on how they looked or, you know, if they had a six-pack or if they had tight abs or big arms, half of the men in this world would not be working. Yet, women somehow are held to this standard if you don’t have perfect breasts or you know if you don’t look a certain way or if you don’t fit into a certain size clothing, then somehow you’re undesirable or you’re not as valuable.”
Lastly, Willis revealed what she’s learned from mother Demi Moore, “I’ve learned a lot of my - the integrity that I try to hold for myself in everything that I do and the value I try and put out in the world. She always says, live in whatever your integrity is, and go out to the world and present yourself how you want to present yourself and how you want people to see you.”
