Willis’ daughter wants to make it on her ownApril 28th, 2008 - 2:17 pm ICT by admin
London, April 28 (IANS) Bruce Willis and Demi Moore’s daughter Rumer, who debuts with “Wild Cherry”, wants to prove that she is more than a “celebrity child” by making it in Hollywood on her own. Contactmusic.com reports that the 19-year-old is a regular at parties. She denies that she is using her parents’ fame: “I think when people meet me they’re shocked. Because the idea of celebrity children is that they’re trust-fund babies that don’t have any desire to work and they’re just going to ride their parents’ train. And in some cases that stereotype has proved right.
“I would hope that after people meet me, they would give me the benefit of the doubt. They’re kind of like, ‘Wow, you’re really much more chill and down-to-earth than I thought you would be’.”
She refuses to believe that she has been offered roles because of her fame and says she has had to actually fight harder just to prove that she is an actress in her own right.
She said: “The interesting thing about Hollywood is that everyone has different ways of getting their foot in the door. Some of the opportunities that I’ve had because of how I’ve grown up I wouldn’t have had otherwise. And also some of the things that I have to work harder for that somebody else might not.”
