In an interview with Howard Stern on Sirius XM, Rumer Willis has opened up about her mother Demi Moore’s marriage to Ashton Kutcher.
Rumer Willis, 26, admits Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore’s May-December romance was awkward given that Kutcher was one of her celeb crushes when she was younger.
“He was one of many on the wall, but I totally did,” Rumer Willis said about hanging Ashton Kutcher’s poster in her bedroom.
“I feel like I told my sister that, <<Man, ugh, alright, gotta cross him off the list>>.”
The Dancing with the Stars contestant said the awkwardness didn’t last very long, and she quickly accepted Ashton Kutcher’s role as stepfather.
“It was definitely weird for a minute but I have to commend him, he was a really great stepfather and the perspective shifted very quickly,” Rumer Willis said.
“That’s when you open up your Teen Beat and then you just take him down, find someone else and put him up.”
Demi Moore, 52, and Ashton Kutcher, 37, were married in September 2005, but separated in 2011 following an Us Weekly report that he cheated on her with a woman named Sara Leal in San Diego.
However, Rumer Willis said she didn’t feel any skepticism about the relationship despite plenty of naysayers given the former couple’s age difference.
Earlier this month, The Longest Ride actor Scott Eastwood dropped a bombshell during his Watch What Happens Live appearance, when he claimed that he was actually dating Sara Leal when she allegedly cheated on him with Ashton Kutcher.
Ashton Kutcher filed for divorce from Demi Moore in December 2012, citing irreconcilable differences. The divorce was finalized on November 2013. He is now married to Mila Kunis and they have a daughter together.
Tallulah Willis entered rehab shortly after tweeting a cryptic message on July 23, People magazine reported.
While the tweet has since been deleted from the 20-year-old daughter of Bruce Willis and Demi Moore’s page, several sources indicated to the publication that she’s seeking help.
“The situation had been building for a while,” a family insider said.
“She’s been dealing with some unhappiness, and everything sort of came to a head,” the insider added.
“I struggled a lot when I was younger,” Tallulah Willis previously said in a video posted on her fashion blog, adding that she was “diagnosed with body dysmorphia”.

“[I was] reading those stupid f—ing tabloids when I was, like, 13, feeling like I was just ugly, always,” she continued on her blog.
“I believed the strangers more than the people that loved me, because why would the people who loved me be honest?”
While her famous parents are reportedly standing by her side, sister Rumer Willis celebrated her 26th birthday with a bang.
“Best birthday cake ever,” Bruce Willis and Demi Moore’s oldest daughter wrote on Instagram on August 16 with a photo of a gun-shaped birthday cake, which her post indicated was received from her mother.
“Thank you mama for making this day so special.”
Rumer Willis also posted a funny black-and-white photo that appeared to be taken in a photo booth.
Only six years older than Tallulah and three years older than their other sister Scout, 23, Rumer Willis seems to be on the path of self-discovery and self-love despite the trials and tribulations she’s endured throughout her young life.
Demi Moore and her ex-husband Bruce Willis attended their daughter Rumer Willis’ musical performance at hotspot DBA in West Hollywood, California, on April 5.
However, instead of mingling with each other, Demi Moore and Bruce Willis decided to sit in different areas while supporting their eldest child.
An eyewitness told Us Weekly: “They stayed after to congratulate her and chat for a bit.”

“Bruce and Demi did not interact with each other.”
Demi Moore, 50, was accompanied by one male and two female friends for the special outing, while Bruce Willis, 59, was joined by his very pregnant wife Emma Heming-Willis.
Rumer Willis, 25, plays multiple roles in For the Record: Tarantino, a musical mash-up that pays homage to several of director Quentin Tarantino’s blockbuster hits. One of the roles includes Pulp Fiction character Mia, which Bruce Willis starred in back in 1994.
Demi Moore and Bruce Willis split in 2000 after 13 years of marriage, and are also parents to daughters Scout, 22, and Tallulah, 20.
Bruce Willis is expecting his second baby with Emma Heming, 35.
Rumer Willis proved she certainly inherited her mother Demi Moore’s incredible body as she showed off her amazing physique while holidaying in Maui, Hawaii.
Showcasing her toned curves in all their glory, Rumer Willis, 24, complemented her golden tan with a purple and white polka dot bikini.
Although the high-waisted retro style of the two-piece wouldn’t be flattering on everyone, Rumer Willis looked positively stunning as she emerged from the sea after a dip.
And there was no doubt the brunette bore more than a passing resemblance to Demi Moore as she walked out of the ocean in a scene from 2002 movie, Charlie’s Angel’s: Full Throttle.

As well as inheriting her mother’s fantastic figure, it would seem Rumer Willis has also been the happy recipient of her looks.
She appeared to not be wearing even the merest scrap of make-up, and instead let her natural beauty shine through.
Rumer Willis looked happy and relaxed as she soaked up the sun on her vacation, and used the opportunity to catch up on a spot of reading as she kicked back underneath a sun lounger.
Despite undoubtedly impressing onlookers with her bikini body, the actress later covered up as she left the beach, putting on a bright green floral skirt and stylish Ray-Ban sunglasses as she chatted on the phone.
Rumer Willis looked striking in a satin lilac gown as she attended the Audi and Derek Lam Emmys Week party at Cecconi’s Italian restaurant held in Los Angeles last night.
Posing with a hand on her hip, Rumer Willis, 24, looked confident in the Oscars-worthy dress.
The neckline was exceptionally daring, slashed way below the cleavage and just above the navel.
Of course, the eldest daughter of Demi Moore and Bruce Willis injected a little alternative fashion fun by keeping her nose ring in, wearing a gold body chain and painting her fingernails different colors.

Rumer Willis attended the event with new beau Jayson Blair, 28, making their romance official.
While the lovebirds have been spotted on several dates together and running errands around Hollywood, Sunday evening marked their debut red carpet appearance together.
Having already starred in Glee, 2 Broke Girls and The Hard Times of RJ Berger, Jayson Blair’s notoriety looks set to soar – not only because of dating Rumer Willis, but having been cast in NBC buzz show The New Normal.
And Rumer Willis is certainly not shy when it comes to supporting her new beau.
Affectionately referring to him as “my man”, Rumer Willis offered a little free PR via Twitter, writing: “Hey everybody check out the season finale of @DropDeadDiva tonight my man @Jayson_Blair is guest starring.”
She added: “Hey guys check out the premiere of my guy @Jayson_Blair new show @NBCTheNewNormal after The Voice.”
Despite her parents’ success, Rumer Willis has struggled to find silver screen stardom in the same light.
Instead, she secured work playing the role of Gia on 90210 back in 2009, and has since starred in one episode of The Secret Life of the American Teenager and Workaholics.
Recently has been reported that Demi Moore’s daughters have become estranged from their mother.
Daughter Rumer Willis, 23, was by her mother’s side when she was rushed to hospital following a binge on nitrous oxide in January and in the weeks that followed.
But now it has been alleged that she and her sisters Scout and Tallulah have stopped talking to Demi Moore.
It appears that the girls have “broken all ties” with Demi Moore,49, due to her emotional breakdown in the wake of her split from Ashton Kutcher.
“Demi is very messy right now and the girls have been waiting to get out and move on and now they’re being sucked back in, and they’re all getting into various kinds of trouble.”

The Willis girls, Rumer, Scout, 20 and Tallulah, 18, also appear to be struggling to cope with life without Ashton Kutcher.
A source closed to the family said: “The girls loved him because he actually took parenting seriously even though he was younger and they miss him.”
Apart from Tallulah’s graduation ceremony, Demi Moore has not been seen out with her daughters much in recent months.
Sources close to the family told RadarOnline that the family has reached”’breaking point” following a series of fights.
“Rumer, Scout and Tallulah just don’t want to deal with the drama at the moment,” the source said.
“Since breaking up with Ashton, Demi Moore has been a mess.
“The girls were there for her through it all – the split and the rehab but now they just feel like they need a little distance.”
Things were said to have come to a head when Demi Moore attended Tallulah’s high school graduation.
The trio of sisters allegedly did not want their mother there. Demi Moore arrived alone looking miserable, while the girls looked happier with father Bruce Willis, and they were not pictured with their mother.
There have also been reports that the girls continued relationship with Ashton Kutcher has caused tensions.
Ashton Kutcher was present at a nightclub to see Rumer sing back in April and the pair were also seen meeting up in May.
A source told the gossip site: “They [Rumer, Tallulah and Scout] all adore him and talk to him regularly which Demi hates, but he was a huge part of their lives when they were growing up and they don’t want to break off all contact with him.”
The family has had their fair share of drama of late. Earlier this week Tallulah was at the centre of nude photo scandal. And sister Rumer is lamenting the disappearance of her dog.
