Rumer Willis Opens Up: "I Was Constantly Bullied Because of My Looks"

Rumer Willis only recently has become comfortable in her own skin.

"I was constantly bullied because of my looks, so I struggled a lot with my body image," Rumer reveals about being famous since birth. "I wanted to have no butt; I wanted to have no boobs. For a long time I just wanted to look tiny and androgynous. I never really shared what I was going through with my parents, because it was too painful. I didn't know how to ask for help or how to even bring it up."

On learning to ignore Internet bullies:

"The real pressure comes from the Internet and social media -- the mentality that it's OK to attack people from behind a computer screen," she laments. "Strangers say the nastiest things. Until recently the thought of making one misstep that could be criticized would stop me from trying new things and from standing up for myself."

"It's difficult, but the moment you stop saying, 'I'm really fat,' or 'I'm ugly,' and just say, 'Wow, I have this,' then you'll see a change," she writes. "We all need to stop bullying ourselves and being cruel to other women. Attacking one another instead of supporting one another has become the norm. Life's hard enough as it is."
