Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Although it will probably always be hard for actress Rumer Willis to step out from behind the shadow cast by her famous parents (actor Bruce Willis and actress Demi Moore), Willis appears to be following in their footsteps towards establishing an acting career. Born in Paducah, Kentucky, Willis got her start by appearing in movies alongside her mother (1995's "Now and Then" and 1996's "Striptease"), and her father (2000's "The Whole Nine Yards" and 2005's "Hostage"). After a break from acting, Willis returned in 2008 with a string of roles, including appearances on television shows ("CSI: NY") and in film ("From Within"). A year later, Willis landed a multi-episode spot on "90210" (as the character Gia Mannetti), and won a Young Hollywood Award for her role in the film "Wild Cherry" (for "Breakthrough Performance Female"). The same year, Willis would win two other awards, a ShoWest Convention Award (for "Female Star of Tomorrow") and a Golden Globe Award (for "Miss Golden Globe").
