The 26-year-old recently penned an essay for Glamour magazine, talking about the difficulty of growing up in the spotlight, and how's she's managed to overcome the challenges. The Dancing With the Stars champ definitely had a unique upbringing, since she was famous from the day she was born to Demi and Bruce Willis.

"I was constantly bullied because of my looks, so I struggled a lot with my body image," Rumer confessed. "I wanted to have no butt; I wanted to have no boobs. For a long time I just wanted to look tiny and androgynous. I never really shared what I was going through with my parents, because it was too painful. I didn't know how to ask for help or how to even bring it up."

She said that some advice that her mama gave her stuck with her over the years, and helped her get over her insecurities.

"I do remember my mom telling me, 'There's always going to be someone who's a better singer. There's always going to be someone more fit. There's always someone who's going to be, in your mind, better than you -- who you're comparing yourself to. But you can't do that, because you will live such an unhappy life.' It just took me a long time to put that advice into practice."

Isn't that the truth? It's impossible to be happy if you're constantly comparing yourself to others.

She also said that while bullying is cruel and awful, especially in this digital world with anonymous user names, the worst thing we can do is bully ourselves.

She said, "It's difficult, but the moment you stop saying, 'I'm really fat,' or 'I'm ugly,' and just say, 'Wow, I have this,' then you'll see a change. We all need to stop bullying ourselves and being cruel to other women. Attacking one another instead of supporting one another has become the norm. Life's hard enough as it is."

Brava to Rumer, and let's hope she continues to take that advice.
