Rumer Willis accuses photographer of 'bullying' her with Photoshopped pic

Rumer Willis is known for her acting, her song-and-dance work and her distinctive look — which seems to be a perfect blend of her parents, Demi Moore and Bruce Willis.

That look includes a strong jawline. It's a feature that she's proud to have, and it's one that she was shocked to see altered in a recent photo that's circulated online.

Willis posted the photo — which, according to E! News, is from a recent Vanity Fair shoot with her sisters, Tallulah and Scout — and she asked anyone else who's shared the photo to take it down, because it doesn't really represent her.

"The photographer Photoshopped my face to make my jaw smaller and I find it really offensive for anyone to try and change the way you look so drastically," she wrote in a caption on Instagram. "I love the way I look and I won't support anyone who would feel a need to change the way I look to make me beautiful."

And according to Willis, changing her looks isn't just a bad call — it's bullying.

"Whether or not they realize it, it is a form of bullying, which I won't stand for," she added.

Last year, Willis wrote about bullying and how hard she once found it to accept herself.

"I was constantly bullied because of my looks, so I struggled a lot with my body image," she explained in an essay for Glamour. "I wanted to have no butt; I wanted to have no boobs. For a long time I just wanted to look tiny and androgynous."

But she's come a long way since then, and she won't let anyone — or any photo — make her doubt herself again.
