Scout Willis says I’m too sensitive for a film career. She is the daughter of actor Bruce Willis and actress Demi Moore and she feels because she is this way she would be unable to forge a career like her famous parents. The twenty three year old has also said that all that media focus which is on her parents is just overly-intrusive, this is the reason she feels she is not made for the Hollywood scene.
“God bless them but I would never want to be an actress – I’m too sensitive. They take a beating and it’s about your personal life as well as your art. I like to be in control of what I’m making. I’ve seen my parents put everything into a role and then somewhere along the line it becomes about other peoples’ decisions.”
The comments had been made by Willis during the time of promoting the launch of Impossible’s 8 x 8 exhibition at Hoxton Gallery in London which features eight Polaroid-style photographs taken by Scout, which is extended to explore the theme of youthful sexuality.
Speaking about the photos, she told the Evening Standard newspaper:
“In this exhibition it’s me in all of them, all of the pieces. My senior thesis was a series I did about people’s relative comfort and discomfort with their bodies so there were a lot of nudes. It wouldn’t be fair to ask other people to do that if I wasn’t comfortable doing it too.”
The free exhibition, which also features work from Lana Del Rey’s sister Chuck Grant and The Kills’ Alison Mosshart, will be open until February 22.
