For Rumer Willis, Hollywood is a matter of DNA. The daughter of Demi Moore and Bruce Willis, the actress and singer is no stranger to all things entertainment: She was made a series regular on Empire in the fall, and we can’t help but expect much more from her. For now, we plugged her for beauty regimens (both hers and her Moms), her last meal and why she doesn’t think insecurities are something you necessarily outgrow…
From start to finish, what would be your ideal food day?
For breakfast, lots of fruit and maybe some oatmeal or chia pudding. For lunch, raw veggies and hummus and a soup. For dinner, a rice bowl with steamed vegetables. For dessert, gluten-free berry cobbler.
Could you take us through your morning and nightly beauty routines?
Morning: I wake up, meditate, brush my teeth, wash my face and use my Sisley Confort Extreme Day Creme. I eat breakfast, take my vitamins and check my emails and schedule for day. In the shower, I wash my body with Byredo Oud Immortel body wash, and Oribe Gold Lust shampoo and conditioner.
Night: If I haven’t showered that morning I will take one when I get home from work and wash my face with Dr Sturm cleanser and use Lotion PV50 by Biologique Recherche then cover my body in everyday oil, which is great. Then I put Vintners Daughter oil on my face, neck and chest and then use Sisley Confort Extreme night cream. Then if my lips are dry I use the lip balm from Sisley which is great.
Is there beauty advice from your Mom that you always followed, what is it?
Always take your make up off at night, and put lotion on, because dry skin is brutal.
What’s the best advice you’ve received from both or either of your parents?
Be true to myself and confident in my actions.
Are there foods and drinks you avoid? What are they?
Well, I just recently watched the documentary What the Health so I am actually trying to eat vegan for a little while and see how I like it. But normally, I have been gluten-free for almost ten years. I do like a bit of chocolate now and then, and I try to stay away from all processed foods.
Did you always want to be an actress? Did you ever want to be anything else?
I would say I definitely wanted to be an actress and singer for as long as I can remember, but I did used to think when I was a kid that I would be a great detective or criminal lawyer.
What’s the issue you’re most passionate about right now and why?
Man, there are so many right now in our current climate that it’s really hard to decide. Other than what’s going on politically right now, I would say my biggest passion is anti-bullying, especially anti-bullying on the Internet which has become seriously rampant.
What’s one thing you have always been insecure about, and how did you overcome it?
I used to be very insecure about how I looked – and I don’t think necessarily that insecurities are something that just go away. I think it’s just a matter changing the way that we talk to ourselves and not allowing negativity of others to become the opinion that we have ourselves. I think it’s really important to always talk to yourself in a loving way – almost like you were talking to a little kid, and you would never say the mean things you say to yourself.
Where do you love to travel? What won’t you travel without?
I love to travel everywhere and anywhere. I’m a big fan of exploring new places and cultures. I definitely won’t travel without Dream Water. It’s amazing for travel.
What would your last meal be? Who would it be with?
Oh God…I honestly don’t know and try not to think about it. But, obviously I would want to be with my family.
If you could put your own original quote on a t-shirt to sum up your mood and mode, what would it be?
Well, my sister Tallulah actually came up with this but I love the quote:
“You are always the right choice.”
