Rumer Willis dedicates DWTS win to fans
Rumer Willis has dedicated her 'Dancing With The Stars' win to all her fans with low self esteem.
The 26-year-old actress - who was crowned queen of the competition with her partner Val Chmerkovskiy on the final last night (19.05.15) - has confessed she had her doubts over whether she would go far in the series and hopes her victory will inspire others to overcome their insecurities too.
She said: "You know, I hope that it stands for all of that and for anyone who didn't think that they deserved to do something, or couldn't do something, or wasn't capable ... Other than for Val and myself, that is who this mirrorball is for. "
The 'House Bunny' star added the experience has led her to feel like a "completely different person" to who she was when she started out in the competition months ago.
She explained: "I feel like I'm a completely different person than the person that [Val] met. He kept asking if I really wanted to do this. [But now, to be] able to stand proudly and put your whole self on the dance floor, and just show who you are and have such a positive response. To see how many people came up to us and were so excited for us - that we won - I think speaks volumes."
Rumer - who beat off competition from former soldier Noah Galloway and singer Riker Lynch in the final - is the daughter of Bruce Willis and Demi Moore and credits her superstar parents, as well as her sisters Scout and Tallulah, for pushing her on in the competition with their incredible support.
She said: "We've always been really close. That's one of the beautiful things. They're incredibly supportive and so wonderful, and they are willing to come and support me and cheer me on in whatever crazy endeavours I decide to do!"
However, the raven-haired beauty is most looking forward to celebrating her triumph with her dance partner.
She explained to UsMagazine.com: "To be honest the person I'm most excited about celebrating with is Val, because he is the person that I did this with. I love my family and I love their support, but I'm proud and I want to celebrate with him."
