Rumer Willis Denies She's the Lion in 'The Masked Singer' : 'I Am Not'

The lion previously revealed that many would consider her Hollywood royalty, even mentioning how "in my pride, there are lots of women"

Fans of The Masked Singer have pointed out clues and predictions lending credence to the rumors Rumer Willis is the Lion.

However, the actress, 30, shut down the whispers at the 2019 Screen Actors Guild Awards on Sunday.

“I am not,” Willis told PEOPLE Now host Andrea Boehlke and PEOPLE Deputy Editor JD Heyman during the PEOPLE, Entertainment Weekly & TNT Red Carpet Live: 25th Screen Actors Guild Awards.

The daughter of actors Bruce Willis and Demi Moore did notice the fan speculation on social media though.

“All of a sudden when it started airing, I started getting all of these things in my Twitter feed and I said, ‘Oh, okay. Well, maybe I have to watch this and see what’s happening,’ ” Willis said. “It’s pretty cool.”
