Bruce Willis' Daughter Shared The Life-Changing Lesson She Learned Growing Up

If Die Hard taught us anything, it's that Bruce Willis is someone you don't want to mess with. But real life can be more dangerous than any movie, and there was one person who even Willis couldn't protect: his daughter Rumer. In fact, she opened up about a life-changing event that took place during her teenage years, and it's changing everything we thought we knew about her famous upbringing.

The perfect life

On paper, Rumer Willis' life always seemed pretty much perfect. Ever since she was born in August 1988, she seemed destined to follow in her parents' footsteps as a Hollywood star. After all, she already had everything one needs in order to succeed in show business!

Super famous parents

When your parents are Bruce Willis and Demi Moore, there's only one path your career can take. So while other students were preparing for kindergarten, Rumer started getting ready for her big-screen debut.

Her big debut

In 1995, Rumer appeared alongside her mother in the coming-of-age film Now and Then. She may have been credited as Willa Glen, but the child was already on the road to stardom, and both parents were working overtime to make her journey possible.

Becoming her own star

And Rumer wasn't playing favorites between her parents, either! Five years later, she hit the screen with Bruce in The Whole Nine Yards. Still, she knew if she was truly going to make it big, she couldn't work with mom and dad forever.
