Rumer Willis Says Her Jaw Was Photoshopped in Magazine Photo: 'It Is a Form of Bullying'
“Any friends of fans of mine who posted this, I would appreciate if you took it down,” Willis, 27, posted on Instagram on Tuesday, along with the photo. “The photographer Photoshopped my face to make my jaw smaller and I find it really offensive for anyone to try and change the way you look so drastically.”
The actress says she is confident in her appearance, and is offended by the alteration of her image.
“I love the way I look and I won’t support anyone who would feel a need to change the way I look to make me beautiful,” she said. “Whether or not they realize it, it is a form of bullying, which I won’t stand for.”
Willis has admitted to struggling with insecurities about her looks in the past.
“When I was a teenager I was super awkward,” she said while on Dancing with the Stars last April. “I don’t think I really felt comfortable in my body or with how I looked, and people were nasty.”

She credits her younger sister Tallulah, now 22, with helping her find her confidence after Tallulah publicly entered rehab.
“I was inspired because she didn’t try to hide from it,” said Willis. “She really owned it. She got in this mind-set of saying, ‘Here are my flaws, and it’s okay. I’m still me, and I’m still beautiful, and it doesn’t matter.’ “
