‘Bullies stopped me from trying new things’
Actor Rumer Willis has confessed to her fear of being criticised by online bullies and says they stop her from “trying new things” and “standing up” for herself.
“There were times when personal stuff in my life was blasted everywhere and I couldn’t leave my house for a week because I would be aggressively and dangerously followed,” the House Bunny actor, who is the daughter of Bruce Willis and Demi Moore, told Glamour magazine, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
“But the real pressure comes from the Internet and social media, the mentality that it’s okay to attack people from behind a computer screen. Strangers say the nastiest things. Until recently the thought of making one misstep that could be criticised would stop me from trying new things and from standing up for myself,” she added.
