Rumer Willis: My Parents 'Set an Example'

What's it like having Bruce Willis as your dad, Demi Moore as your mom and Ashton Kutcher as your stepdad?

"Great!" according to Rumer Willis, who told reporters Thursday at a press conference in Los Angeles for her upcoming comedy The House Bunny, "I'm probably one of the luckiest girls around."

"I get to share holidays and (for my parents) to be able to set an example like that, my family's done something I hope for many other people," Willis, 19, said, "I don't think I would be the same person without it."

Willis, who previously had a few small roles in movies, described The House Bunny as one of her first major roles and, even with her famous parents, said Hollywood is still a bit unfamiliar.

"[I used to be] an accessory ... I grew up around sets when I was younger but I was never necessarily in the movies. I'd just sit in the trailer and hang out," she explained. "I'm at the very beginning (of my career). I may have exposure to media but in terms of actual work I've done, it's very little. It's just a different experience ... I've been to press junkets but I've never been the one behind the table."

Though mom Demi previously said it's a little bit scary to see her daughter enter the acting world, Rumer says the entire family is behind her decision.

"They're just very supportive and I don't think I can ask for anything else," she said. "I think that's the most important thing a parent can do for a kid."
