    Default Tallulah Willis on people making fun of her face ‘It was so painful’



    The other day I saw a meme on Reddit that read “I’m so glad I grew up in the 80s and 90s. I said and did so much stupid sh*t, and there’s no record of it anywhere.” That’s what usually comes to mind when I see a story about the younger Willis girls, Tallulah, 20, or Scout, 23. I thought Tallulah was the one who was protesting Instagram’s no-nipple policy by going topless, but that was Scout. I get those two confused. Scout was also the one who was caught drinking underage.

    I guess we haven’t talked about Tallulah much, but we are now because she has taken part in the What’s Underneath Project by Style Like U. The project features women stripping down to their underwear to “honor how style is not the clothes you wear, it is comfort in your skin, it is your spirit, it is What’s Underneath.” The most recent episode features a fashion designer named Rachel Fleit who has alopecia and has been bald since she was a child. I thoroughly enjoyed watching her video, she’s funny and her, interview was deep. Some of the things she said about not accepting herself and about learning to feel comfortable in her skin really touched me.

    In Tallulah’s What’s Underneath interview, she talked about self esteem and about suffering from an eating disorder. She said she was diagnosed with body dysmorphia “with reading those stupid f–king tabloids when I was like 13 and feeling like I was ugly, like always.

    Tallulah was very matter-of-fact and outspoken. At first I thought she was babbling, but overall she made sense and I found myself coming around on her. (It’s NSFW as there are F-bombs.) Tallulah said that she dressed provocatively when she was younger and that she starved herself to feel better about her image. She also said that she felt inadequate because she didn’t have a talent like so many of her peers. She’s only 20! E! did a nice job of transcribing what she said:


    The 20-year-old admitted that she was diagnosed with an eating disorder and had trouble living her life in the public eye due to her famous parents.

    “I struggled a lot when I was younger. Like I’m diagnosed with body dysmorphia with reading those stupid f–king tabloids when I was like 13 and feeling like I was ugly, like always. I believed the strangers more than the people that loved me because why would the people who loved me be honest?”

    For every question that the green-haired fashionista answered, she was asked to remove an article of clothing (of her choosing) while on camera.

    “That made me start to dress showing off my boobs and my butt and showing offthose things that I was getting attention for…It took me until like a year ago and I remember specifically one day outing on a button-up and buttoning it all the way up to my neck and putting on pants that weren’t tight. And feeling so beautiful and the fact that all the attention was on my face was so scary for me because I always wanted to distract people. I felt like I was trapped in this body and I hated that I was sexy. ”

    Willis continued, “I started starving myself and losing a bunch of weight and I got down to like 95 pounds. When I lost my curves and when my boobs shriveled up into like nothing and I had no shape…It put me in even more of a cage.”


    [From E! Online]

    I feel for Tallulah for having an eating disorder and for having to find her place in the world while under so much scrutiny. Honestly it was hard for me to relate to most of what she said. I’m double her age and I’m so far removed from this stage. I’m sure I sounded just like this when I was 20, though. You know, I take back what I wrote in the intro. Now that I’m much older, I would love to see a video of myself talking about life and self esteem at 20 years old. I just wouldn’t want it to be on the Internet.

    One thing Tallulah said which got to me was that she was most insecure about her face. She said “That’s where my diagnosis came into play. I would see these things on the Internet and I would be like ‘why would someone write that if there wasn’t some basis for truth there?’ Ok cool, I have a good body and that’s attractive to people… so they just want this [gestures to body] and they’re going to ignore this [gestures to face]… It was so painful, like rippling painful… it’s pretty much plagued me since I was 13.


    There are going to be people who bash Tallulah still, but I give her so much credit for admitting this, and for participating in this project. She’s not Scout, I know that now.

    Here’s a link to the video. Her shoes! Maybe they’re comfortable.

    Radar Online | Tallulah Willis Enters Rehab After Months Of Out-Of-Control Behavior


    Demi Moore
    and Bruce Willis‘ youngest daughter, Tallulah, secretly entered a rehab treatment center last month for cocaine and alcohol abuse, according to a new report.

    Star magazine reports that the 20-year-old admitted herself into The Meadows in Arizona on July 23 after spiraling down a dangerous path — and mom Moore fears her daughter is taking after her.
    “Demi feels so much guilt about Tallulah spiraling out of control like she did,” a source told the magazine, recalling Moore’s rehab stint in 2012.

    “It’s like she’s living past experiences all over again. But she’s trying to be strong for her daughter.”
    Arrested when she was just 17 for underage drinking, Scout and Rumer‘s younger sister has been a fixture on the Hollywood party scene.
    “Tallulah doesn’t know right from wrong, because she was raised without boundaries,” another source said. “She looks for trouble to get attention.”

    The magazine claims that on May 8 while partying at a Roosevelt Hotel event, her sister Scout caught Tallulah snorting cocaine and told their father, Bruce.
    The Die Hard star threatened to cut his daughter off financially if she didn’t seek help, according to the report, but feeling betrayed by her sister Scout, Tallulah moved to New York City in mid-June where she actually dove deeper into the cocaine abuse.

    “Demi was the shoulder to cry on that Tallulah needed so badly,” the insider toldStar, explaining that the actress flew her daughter back out to Los Angeles and convinced her to enter rehab.
    “Demi had been shocked when Tallulah confessed to her,” the source said, “but she knew enough not to judge. She knew her daughter needed her, and she was glad she could be there to help.”

    Hmmm well dare I say this is probably part of the problem. I mean, what do any of the Willis girls do? Did any of them go to college, or have jobs, or do anything besides show up for club openings, protest instagram by going topless, or make half-assed videos? I can feel some sympathy for Tallulah for people making fun of her looks, but when she poses for photos with green hair and wearing bondage-gear, she kinda puts herself out there for scrutiny. It's no surprise that one or more of them would have substance abuse problems, their mom is a 50-something adolescent, and it sounds like their dad just throws money at them with the only stipulation being "don't do drugs or I'll cut you off?"

    yeah, I looked it up...Scout (the middle daughter) graduated from Brown. wiki says Rumer went to USC for one semester then dropped out. Not sure about Tallulah but I didn't look that hard.

    ^^^ thanks for the info.

    ok, i just know them as Tater, Demon Eyes, and Youngest. these guys don't do enough of anything for me to notice .... if Demon Eyes does nothing after graduation, that is certainly a waste of a good education.

    I thought Demon Eyes and the Youngest are one and the same (and the subject of this thread)
