Rumer Willis insists being the daughter of Bruce Willis and Demi Moore hasn't helped her win movie roles
Rumer Willis doesn't owe her acting career to her famous parents.
The 21-year-old daughter of Bruce Willis and Demi Moore admits the family name gets her auditions, but insists she wins parts because she is a great performer.
The budding actress - who stars in upcoming horror film 'Sorority Row' - told BANG Showbiz: "You can't do anything about who your parents are. I think everyone has opportunities and everyone has doors that are open to them in different ways.
"If you're talented you'll get work. If you suck then you won't. In the end, talent is all that matters because you could go and get an audition, but if you go in there and you suck you're not going to get a job."
Rumer is the eldest of Bruce and Demi's three daughters.
She grew up on film sets but only decided to become an actress "recently".
Rumer denies her parents steered her into the industry, insisting neither one has ever tried to offer her career advice.
She explained: "In terms of my parents, they let me make my own way. They've just been entirely supportive and extremely great in that way so I couldn't ask for anything better."
