Tube: London Bridge ONE critic cruelly remarked Rumer Willis has her mothers figure and her fathers face, which does the daughter of Demi Moore and Bruce Willis a dis- service. The camera is far from her friend in spoofy horror flick Sorority Row, where she spends most of the time with snot hanging from her nose and tears streaming down her face, but in person 21-year-old Rumer is striking. Yes, she does have Demis curves, but she sure doesnt look like Bruce -- she has a strong look thats all her own and long red hair that sets her out from the crowd of conveyor belt blondes terrorised by a mysterious killer in this remake of little-seen 1983 slasher movie The House On Sorority Row. Not that Rumer is losing any sleep about how shes viewed. I would never want the responsibility of being the prettiest girl in the room, she smiles, looking very pretty indeed. Nor does the actress, who appeared alongside mum and dad on screen as a kid before her adult breakout in last years The House Bunny, worry shell only get roles because of her lineage. If youre talented youll get work and if youre not you wont. It doesnt matter who you know in the end. If you go in for an audition and you suck theyre not going to give you the job. Being high-profile celebrity offspring, with Ashton Kutcher as a stepdad, is more of a drag. I miss being able to walk to the grocery store in my PJs, Rumer admits. But shes happy with the curves her mum gave her and says: I hope to be a positive role model for young women. You dont have to be so stick-thin you can see your bones through your skin. Its not a good look. Theres already talk of a Sorority Row sequel and Rumers game to do it, but she wants to try other genres. And Id like to do something where Im the baddie rather than screaming all the time, she laughs. The goal i s t o pl ay s t ron g ch a r ac t e r s. Hollywood is still run by men and to be able to play empowered females, thats the goal.
