Rumer Willis Went Off On “Vanity Fair” For Bullying Her

Rumer Willis, eldest daughter of ‘90s power couple Bruce Willis and Demi Moore recently took to her Instagram to call out a picture featured in the latest issue of Vanity Fair.

The photograph sees Rumer sitting behind the wheel of a car, flocked by sisters Scout and Tallulah. However, Rumer’s prominent chin appears to be, well, not-so-prominent.

The actress and singer wrote:

Any friends of fans of mine who posted this I would appreciate it you took it down. The photographer Photoshopped my face to make my jaw smaller and I find it really offensive for anyone to try and change the way you look so drastically. I love the way I look and I won’t support anyone who would feel a need to change the way I look to make me beautiful. Whether or not they realize it, it is a form of bullying, which I won’t stand for.”

This isn’t the first ( and certainly won’t be the last) time Rumer has called out a publication for Photoshopping her to extremes. Back in 2014, she told ETonline how plastic surgery rumers (see what I did there?) were completely false and how upset she was at the shop-job Fraziska Fox’s Spring/Summer 2015 lookbook produced.

“They took away the muscles from my arms and from my stomach, and you know, I’m really happy with my face and my body,” she said. “And I’ve worked really hard to get these muscles and it didn’t even look like me.”

In the wake of the attention Rumer’s Instagram received, photographers Mark Williams and Sara Hirakawa issued the following statement to The Cut:

“The retouching that was done to the photograph was only done to resolve some distortion with using a wide angle lens for a group shot, and not to alter or modify anyone’s face. We used a wide angle lens, and it might’ve made Rumer’s chin look smaller from the higher angle that we shot the image. We did correct for the optics of the lens slightly as people’s heads get distorted through the wide angle lens. We certainly did not intend to change the way she naturally looks. Our intention was to capture the special bond between Rumer and her sisters.It saddens us that Rumer feels the way she does about the image and hope she understands that there was never any intention with it to alter her appearance. We should make clear that this image was an outtake and was not published in Vanity Fair or vf.com nor did they ever see it.”

 

Willis has yet to respond.
