Rumer Willis Has Never Looked Happier

Growing up as the eldest daughter of Demi Moore and Bruce Willis hasn't been easy for Rumer Willis. Now 26, Rumer spent her early 20s acting in small parts in small movies, appearing as a guest star in a few TV shows (Pretty Little Liars, Medium), and attempting to avoid the tabloid attention aimed at her as a result of her very famous parents' very famous relationships. 

It wasn't until she accepted a spot on Dancing with the Stars that it seemed Rumer would be in the spotlight for all the right reasons. True, the ABC hit carries with it a certain stereotype, often thought of as a former marquee name's last chance for fame — a reputation not helped by the long line of fading stars looking to relive their glory days who continue to sign up. Suzanne Somers, we had almost forgotten you! Patti Labelle, how flawless you could easily have remained in our memories! 

But Willis not only proved herself to be an easily adaptable, eager, enthusiastic, and wildly telegenic contender on DWTS — earlier this month she went on to win the (hilariously labeled) Mirror Ball. While the show's top prize makes a nice tchotchke on any fireplace mantel, the real reward of a DWTS win comes in the form of fans. Say what you will about the glitzy dancing reality show, but this small-screen dinosaur has a Jurassic Park-level following. 

Rumer recently donned a black bikini and proudly posed for one of her friends, later posting the photos up on her own Instagram. Sure, working out in grueling dance rehearsals seven hours a day for months will put anyone in tip-top shape. But we're more focused on that winning smile. For once, Rumer has tons of reasons to celebrate — and they're all cheering her on via Twitter.
