Actress Rumer Willis says she wanted to undergo a cosmetic surgery as a teenager as she experienced so many negative comments about her appearance.

The 26-year-old actress, who is the daughter of Bruce Willis and Demi Moore, admits she found it "tough" growing up in the spotlight, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

"When you grow up with parents that are known worldwide and having so much attention from media and all of the tabloid magazines, it’s really tough. When I was a teenager I was super awkward, I don’t think I really felt comfortable in my body or with how I looked and people were nasty," she said on TV show "Dancing with the Stars".

"My mom, who is one of the most stunning women I’ve ever met and who everyone was comparing me to, saying that you look more like your very masculine father than your beautiful mom. For years I thought, ‘Maybe I can get plastic surgery. If I change my face or get really skinny, that will be it, that will be the answer and it’s not," she added.

Rumer learned to love herself after seeing how her sister Tallulah, 21, dealt with a stint in rehab for a number of issues including an eating disorder last year.
