Rumer Willis Interview — JustJared.com Exclusive
Rumer Willis strikes a cute pose with her JJ coaster at the Four Seasons Hotel in Los Angeles for the press junket for Sorority Row on Sunday (August 30). Check out the trailer below! The 21-year-old House Bunny actress hung out with JustJared.com and talked about everything from her upcoming 90210 guest spot to being a computer nerd to her love of shooting guns! Here’s the exclusive interview with Rumer:
JJ: Are you familiar with JustJared.com?
RW: I think it was just one of those random things – somebody told me that there was something and you just end up looking at it but yeah, I’ve heard about it! You’re always nice! I appreciate it!
JJ: Do you read blogs at all, like other types of blogs?
RW: I try not to. The majority of time, as you know, everybody has an opinion about you. If you let other people dictate how you feel about yourself or how you live your life, you’re not really living. It’d be too hard to do that.
JJ: Do you go online at all? Are you computer savvy?
RW: I’m a computer nerd! I totally am.
JJ: Are you a big Twitterer?
RW: I try to…my parents are way better at it, obviously, than me. I keep trying to figure out, like, do people really care if I’m, like, “hey, I’m doing my laundry!” [laughs] I keep trying to figure it out, but I’m working on it.

JJ: What’s your favorite prop from Sorority Row?
RW: The knife! I’m loving the different questions today! My favorite prop? I didn’t necessarily get to use it, but I thought the tire iron was really cool, especially the pimped out one. That and I loved my shotgun. Well, it wasn’t necessarily mine, obviously, but Carrie Fisher definitely looks pretty badass with it.
JJ: Did anyone pull any pranks on the set?
RW: You know, we were talking about this – we wish we would’ve done more! It’s one of those things you think about after. We had so many opportunities, especially with all of the makeup and things, but Briana [Evigan] actually came out one day and all of our stunt doubles, they had wigs for them – mine never got used, but Briana put on my wig and put on my glasses and had fake tears, and she came out and was, like, acting all upset. All the PAs were, like, is Rumer okay?! What’s going on – she’s freaking out – and she actually came up to me and I couldn’t figure it out – it kind of took me a while to realize it was her and then we all started dying laughing. We were laughing basically the entire time in between takes and on set.
JJ: Can you tell us about your character on 90210?
RW: My character that I’m playing is Gia, and right now, honestly, I don’t even know where her storyline is going but the whole crew has been so sweet. When you’re coming into a show where they’ve already all worked together for a while, it can be nervewracking, but they were so sweet and so welcoming and really nice and kind of a great group and cast.
JJ: Do you have any upcoming things on TV?
RW: I just had an episode of The Secret Life of The American Teenager – I play a pregnant chick [laughs] – I know, it was really funny. So that just came out.
JJ: What the most dangerous thing you’ve ever done?
RW: I’ve been to the shooting range and I loved it! It’s a bit scary, but when you shoot a gun, you really respect how dangerous a gun can be. But it was fun!
JJ: Happy birthday…how does it feel to be legal?
RW: It’s cool – it doesn’t really feel that different! Honestly, the only thing for me is there’s a lot of cool dive bars where I live and I like going out and dancing or just getting to hang out because most of the time I just stay in the house. So going to the cool restaurants or bars like that, that’s cool.
JJ: What was your best birthday present?
RW: I got a couple really cool ones! Honestly, just being able to go to Vegas and have that amazing of a party was just incredible – just to have my family and friends…
My little sister Tallulah got me a Rosetta Stone in French so I’m gonna try it out.
JJ: Why French?
RW: My middle sister, Scout, is fluent!
JJ: What are your favorite restaurants in LA?
RW: It’s kind of a scene, which drives me crazy, but Koi is the best sushi. It’s my favorite – crispy rice and spicy tuna! That’s great. There’s Thompson – the Thompson Hotel – I just went there for lunch the other day on the rooftop, and it’s a really cool vibe. They had truffle popcorn! I need to go out more! I don’t know that many restaurants.
