Rumer Willis: Prestige Magazine Cover Girl!
Here’s what the 22-year-old actress and Badgley Mischka ambassador had to share:
On always wanting to be an actress: “I always wanted to do it from when I was super little, so it was more about just waiting for my parents to say it was OK. They were totally fine, they’ve always been completely supportive of it. They just wanted me to finish high school, which I totally appreciate now.”
On being in the public eye: “You have to be a little more aware of how you present yourself in public places. I mean, I can’t walk into Starbucks anymore in my pajama pants. But, you know, everyone has an opinion, and if they say something negative, you can’t defend yourself because any response in itself is enough to validate the claim. But that’s the great thing about outlets like Twitter because, more and more, we’re getting control of our image. We can be in direct contact with the world and people can at least choose between second-hand and the direct information.”
On her fashion sense: “My style changes a lot. I’ll go back and forth, I go through periods of wearing baggy black jeans and vintage T-shirts and combat boots, and then I’ll want to wear dresses every day and look really cute. So it just relies on what you’re feeling. Sometimes, I think I was born into the wrong era. If I could go back and live in the 40s for a little while, that would be great. I just think the 40s are such an awesome era, I mean, a gardenia in loose hair—and those dresses were amazing.”
