Tallulah Willis: Mom Demi Moore Taught Me to Love My Body

04/12/2012 at 03:30 PM ET

When Tallulah Willis needs a fashion fix, she just calls on her mother, Demi Moore. “My mom has a warehouse of vintage clothes that she’s collected,” the college student tells StyleLikeU.com. “Every time we go back [home] to Idaho we grab a little bit more. It’s like your own personal vintage store.”

Showing off her favorite fashion finds in a video for the site (big sis Scout did her own video for them last year), Willis recalls the moments when she first got into clothes.

“I remember every day I would be like, ‘Scout, dress me. Put an outfit on me,’” she shares. “She’d dress me in these outfits and I would look ridiculous because they would be 10 sizes too big, but I didn’t care. From them on, dressing just because something I appreciated.”

She also appreciated her parents’ support; according to Willis, mom Moore “was very much like, ‘Love your body, love yourself, run around naked.’ Whatever we wanted to do, it was very accepting,” she says.

Dad Bruce had a similar mindset; Willis says he believed that “whatever you want to do, we love it.” However, it did take a little while for him to let go. “They’re a lot more protective; they want to keep me the baby for as long as possible,” she shares.

But it seems like the teen is doing just fine. Ruminating on friends who’ve battled eating disorders — “especially before Coachella,” she shares — she says she feels good about herself, proudly stating, “I don’t have to be insecure to fit in.”

I liked The VIDEO, you go girl, I’m glad you’re comfortable with yourself!

txballgirl on

too bad she taught you and not herself to love her body.

Isn’t she a guy?

jen on

Neigh

Liz on

Wow! She looks so much like her mom. I love her style – I had the same style when I was her age. Comfortable and stylish without spending tons of money!

jw on

I like her in this video. Very earthly and comfortable and the kind of friend/person you would want to be around. Now if she could drop the word like out of her vocabulary…

Liz on

@Jen: Seriously? Did you just write “neigh”? I really hope you are 13 year old girl and not an adult (not that being a teenager should excuse you making fun of someone’s looks). However, If you are an adult, I really hope you don’t teach your kids to be as mean-spirited as you are.

Becky on

I think she is a very pretty girl.

Amy on

She’s a pretty girl! People are rude.

Anonymous101 on

It’s too bad Demi didn’t follow her own advice, to love yourself and your body the way it is.

Alisha on

Good for you to be proud of yourself. It’s too bad all young ladies don’t have this type of self esteem. No one else’s opinion ultimately matters.

tori on

Demis daughters are so unattrative!!!! Yuck:(

Kelli on

I absolutely love her style.

tillie on

She taught you to love your body,so why is she killing hers.Tell your mother to practice what she preaches

lonnie on

How like about like she like learns like to like stop like saying “like” every like other like word?

Kris on

Just because clothes are “vintage” does not mean they look good. Just tossing on a bunch of stuff that doesn’t match doesn’t make you a fashionista. Just because your mother has a closet full of clothes from the 80s does not make you a fashionista. Heck, head on over to Goodwill and you’ll find the same stuff. Can you put the label of “vintage” on clothes that are only 10-20 years old? Ugh. Go back and watch the scenes where she’s wearing the disc sunglasses…she looks like Ozzy Osborne. LOL. Class yourself up girl! You look very frumpy.

Cat on

She is the best looking of the lot. Rumer looks like the love child of Jay Leno and Stan Laurel.

Andrea Kaaland on

She needs to like learn how to like talk without like saying like every other word!

dansmot on

Cute girl but does she have to say ‘like’ so much?!!

Miriam on

she looks SO much like her mom, with her dad’s eye color…pretty girl and wholesome, grounded. Demi and Bruce must be proud.

Sheila on

I think the video is adorable. She is very down to earth, very well-mannered and I can appreciate how she likes to thrift shop. Tip for you Tallulah, you can make the boots fit better by drenching them with water and putting a shoe horn in them to stretch them to your size by letting them dry completely or wear them wet until they dry but that can cause blisters. This only works for going up or down one to one and a half sizes. Good luck and great video!

Molly Marsh on

It amazes me that someone can talk and talk and talk and talk and not say anything.

kate on

one word ‘like’

annnie on

Like, like, like. You know???? Geez, learn how to put together a sentence without “like” in it.

Mercedes Conde on

I think she is sooo SHALLOW.. I don’t think is cool.. it is sad to hear and see this girl.

Pele on

What a beautiful, lovely girl – inside and out! I think it’s really brave to put a video together like this and I applaud her intelligence and sincerity. Obviously she has lovely parents. And such an adorable name – love that!

pat on

like ya know, like, like ya know…lord learn to talk LIKE your IQ is higher LIKE your shoe size

weezer on

Demi is a hypocrite.

Jenifer on

Sounds like a lot of you need to see the movie “Bully” Powerful and disturbing, like a lot of your comments. :(

Zo on

The Willis girls are pretty plain in the feature and beauty department.

Juneeeebug on

Right on Tallulah! She reminds me a lot of me. I take on other peoples emotions, I have struggled with all the things she struggles with. I like her! She’s the best Willis BY FAR. I don’t like Scout… at all.

Shelby on

She seems nice! And looks happy. Good for her.

Uncle Jack on

She needs to love her self so she can date Kris Humphree’s! He’s been sad & angry since Kym Kardashian left him for Kan Yea Wesh….

HG on

sure she did….she’s been such a wonderful role model for her three girls

Pat on

I would think the love your body lesson would be difficult to teach by someone with fake boobs and plastic surgery.

jobella on

She’s absolutely adorable and beautiful Why so many derogatory remarks? To all the people who go around the internet posting mean and hateful remarks about everything and everyone (which seems to be the norm these days) please, please go away. By the way, all her children are beautiful.

Odd, Demi doesn’t like herself! She’s been abusing her OWN body with drugs, been in rehab recently, she’s aneorexic and sure doesn’t love her own body, she’ had tons of plastic surgeries and had all her body fat lipo sucked out; very poor example for a mom.

Danielle on

Demi failed as a parent…..she left her daughter to their father when she fell for Ashton…….and look what happened to her…..Ashton left her for a younger woman and the only thing she has now are an empty house and a broken heart…..lesson learned….?

alexa on

she’s gorgeous and original!!!
