Demi Moore and Bruce Willis' daughter Tallulah is opening up about her past issues with her body image in an interview with fashion site StyleLikeU.

The 20-year-old admitted that she was diagnosed with an eating disorder and had trouble living her life in the public eye due to her famous parents.

"I struggled a lot when I was younger. Like I'm diagnosed with body dysmorphia with reading those stupid f--king tabloids when I was like 13 and feeling like I was ugly, like always. I believed the strangers more than the people that loved me because why would the people who loved me be honest?"

For every question that the green-haired fashionista answered, she was asked to remove an article of clothing (of her choosing) while on camera.

"That made me start to dress showing off my boobs and my butt and showing off those things that I was getting attention for…It took me until like a year ago and I remember specifically one day outing on a button-up and buttoning it all the way up to my neck and putting on pants that weren't tight. And feeling so beautiful and the fact that all the attention was on my face was so scary for me because I always wanted to distract people. I felt like I was trapped in this body and I hated that I was sexy. "

Willis continued, "I started starving myself and losing a bunch of weight and I got down to like 95 pounds. When I lost my curves and when my boobs shriveled up into like nothing and I had no shape…It put me in even more of a cage."
