Rumer Willis, who recently won season 20 of “Dancing With the Stars,” said her bikini diet and workout secrets include dancing, yoga and plenty of french fries. Rumer said her bikini body got super-toned without a change in diet because her “DWTS” workouts reshaped her body.
“I pretty much eat the same things, I mean french fries are still a large part of my diet,” Willis told E! Rumer trained six to seven hours a day while competing on “Dancing With the Stars.”
Willis also does yoga with her superfit mom, Demi Moore, whose anti-aging fitness secrets include a raw vegan diet, Pilates and yoga workouts, Celebrity Health & Fitness reported.
Rumer said dancing is better exercise than cardio workouts on the treadmill, which can get boring. “That’s just one of the reasons why I like dancing,” said Rumer.
Willis explained: “To me, running on a treadmill seems so monotonous and I’m not working towards anything. At least when I was dancing, I felt like, I’m doing something that’s going to give me something back. It’s not just for the sole purpose of trying to make my body look a certain way.”
Rumer, who was bullied and called an “ugly potato head” as a child, is proud to have become a role model for self-acceptance, thanks to her stint on “DWTS.”
Denies Plastic Surgery: Was Called ‘Ugly Potato Head’
Willis revealed in “DWTS” confessionals that she had considered plastic surgery after being mercilessly teased as a child for her large chin and masculine-looking face.
Willis said she was constantly compared to her beautiful mother, Demi Moore, and told she looked like her dad, Bruce Willis.
“Everyone was comparing me to [my mom], saying, ‘You look more like your very masculine father than your beautiful mom,'” said Rumer. “For years I thought, ‘Maybe I can get plastic surgery. If I change my face or get really skinny, that will be the answer.’ And it’s not.”
Willis has been the target of rampant speculation that she got chin implants and other facial plastic surgery. Rumer has denied going under the knife, saying she would be honest if she got surgery.
“I know there’s something that came up recently about me getting plastic surgery and it’s not true,” said Rumer. “If I want to get a boob job or change things about myself, I’m not going to lie.”
Willis said performing live before millions of TV viewers for “Dancing With the Stars” boosted her confidence and made her a stronger person.
Rumer dedicated her “DWTS” win to insecure fans battling low self-esteem. “For anyone who didn’t think they deserved to do something, or couldn’t do something, or wasn’t capable, that is who [this trophy] is for,” Willis said.
