All in the Family

"The rule in our family is [the kids] can act with their mom or with me until they're 18," Bruce tells PEOPLE. With that in mind, Rumer makes her big screen debut with a bit part in Moore's light-hearted drama Now and Then followed by her mom's 1996 exotic dancer drama Striptease (right). "She had a need and an interest to do this role," Moore tells the Chicago Sun-Times. "Of course, I would ask the director, 'How's she doing?' Naturally as her mother, I thought she was doing great."

Hailey, Idaho

Bruce and Moore move their brood to the small Idaho village of Hailey, where they reportedly invest $10 million in restorations. "When we're home, it's not like we walk around all dolled up going, 'We are celebrities! We are famous!'" Bruce tells PEOPLE. "I change diapers. I clean up dog doo." But they keep a foot in Hollywood, walking the red carpet for Moore's G.I. Jane, where Rumer and Scout (left) both sport similar cropped styles as their mom.

Her Dream, His Nightmare

After persuading her dad to let her audition for his next action film Hostage, Rumer wins the role and plays Bruce's kidnapped daughter onscreen (right). Of the experience, Bruce tells the Chicago Sun-Times, "Having Rumer play my daughter just ramped up the emotions.
