During a recent interview, starlet Rumer Willis opened up about the marriage between her mother Demi Moore, and her ex-husband Ashton Kutcher.
Willis, 26, recalled how chaotic it might have been for Kutcher to have been in a relationship with an older woman with three daughters. Kutcher was 25 when he began dating Moore in 2003, who was 41 at the time.
Willis told Access Hollywood, “I realized the other day that he was a year younger than me when he and my mom started going out. That would be like me meeting someone who already had three teenage kids. Kind of going into that situation was crazy.”
Willis added, “My mom has always made how my sisters and I feel about situations the most important thing. I think it was more her going, ‘Hey, this is my life and these are my kids and my priorities. So if you want to come and kind of join our crazy claim, this is what I already have kind of built.'”
Momma, today is your birthday and I thought you should know. I don't know where I would be without you. You've taught me so much and helped me become the woman I am today, so thank you. You are my idol, my mentor, my best friend, my partner in crime. You are so strong, wise and compassionate, hilariously funny and disarmingly beautiful…I hope I can embody all of those things the way you do. I love you mommy. Happy Birthday
Willis, the eldest daughter of Moore and actor Bruce Willis, who was born in Paducah, Kentucky, added “I find that so amazing and respectful. It’s one of the things that I admire most about my parents, is that they set such an incredible example for kind of putting their children first and keeping a family together, no matter what.”
Willis, who stays in touch with former stepfather Kutcher, remarked that his daughter with Mila Kunis is “very cute.”
