Earlier this year, actress Rumer Willis surprised fans by being the woman—and voice—behind an elaborate lion costume on Fox TV’s singing-competition show The Masked Singer.
Willis has been bitten by the singing bug, and now the former Dancing with the Stars winner is heading to the music studio to record an album later this year. The music, she says, will be inspired by Amy Winehouse, and aims to “take jazz and make it more digestible for a new generation.”
Later this year, Willis will hit the big screen in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, a film from Quentin Tarantino. “It was one of the most amazing experiences I’ve had on set,” she says. It was particularly special, she says, to be part of a film legacy that includes her dad, Bruce Willis, who played the role of Butch in Tarantino’s 1994 film Pulp Fiction.
Willis, 30, who is the eldest daughter of Bruce Willis and Demi Moore, lives in Los Angeles in a home she has owned for about 10 years. She told Reside® about her favorite items inside it.
Her antique armchair“This is a chair that my mom got me, and I’ve had it since I was 18. It’s been with me in every place that I’ve lived in. It’s the perfect reading chair, and once you sit in it, you definitely don’t want to get up.”
Sustainable skin products“I recently discovered a company called Kindred Black that does sustainable, ‘slow’ skin care in beautiful bottles. I’m trying to do things to lower my carbon footprint and be more sustainable. This company uses bottles that look vintage. They could be from the ’70s, or straight out of Game of Thrones. They look amazing and smell incredible.”
A painting from her sister Tallulah“My little sister Tallulah is a visual artist. For her first art show, I think I bought half of her show. She creates these amazing characters that are poignant. These two are painted in watercolor.”
A necklace from mom“Jewelry, in general, is important to me, and this one is from my mom. I started collecting charms a couple of years ago, and this one has a charm that reflects everyone in my family.”
Her record player“I love being able to listen to music this way. Music has always been an important part of my life. Most of my taste is for music created when records were the only option—from the 1940s to the ’70s. I didn’t know 90% of the artists at Coachella.”
