Demi Moore’s determination to keep her family private has made daughter Tallulah Willis “vocally” transparent.
The daughter of Demi and ex-husband Bruce Willis opened up about her upbringing in an Instagram Live chat with Story + Rain and reflected on the impact her mother has had on her.
“My mom brought us up to be very private … to be very protective of our family, and I kind of interpreted that and swung the pendulum the other way and felt like that was very restrictive,” Tallulah mused.
She went on: “I know that the place she was coming from was really loving and caring and positive but I always felt like, ‘Well, I wanna be transparent’,” she said. So in a revolt against her mother’s restrictive outlook, Tallulah said she became “vocally” transparent.
“I felt like for a long time I would walk into a room and energetically apologise for being there and apologise for taking up space and apologise for existing,” she explained.
The 26-year-old shared that over the past years as she has focused on healing and my sobriety she has “been able to look at that a little more and own the energy that I take up in the world and stop apologising.”
