It's hard to grow up in society with its near-impossible standards — and sometimes it's even harder when you're the kid of two very famous people in Hollywood.
Tallulah Willis, the youngest daughter of Bruce Willis and Demi Moore, has taken a page out of sister Scout's handbook and is taking her clothes off for a cause. (Scout infamously walked around topless in NYC in May to protest Instagram's removal of photos featuring topless women.)

In a new video interview, the 20-year-old reveals her struggles with body dysmorphia, which is a mental disorder that causes one to believe his/her physical appearance is defective. She explains being in the spotlight and people constantly judging her caused her to view herself in a negative light.
"Sometimes I feel like parents look at me and think, 'Oh God, thank God that's not my kid,'" says Tallulah, who begins the video wearing baggy clothes. As the interview carries on, Tallulah slowly undresses.
"I struggled a lot when I was younger. Like I'm diagnosed with body dysmorphia [...] I was like 13 but feeling like I was ugly, like always."
At that pivotal time in her life, Tallulah explains she often sought the approval from people outside her family and tight-knit group of friends.
"I believed the strangers more than the people who loved me because why would the people love me be honest?" she says, adding her face has always been her biggest insecurity.
This led the young teen to wear inappropriate things to get "attention" and even starve herself. But last year, at 19, she realized she had to take control and not let the illness consume her. At this point in the clip, Demi and Bruce's daughter sits in her bra.
"I put on a button-up and buttoned it up all the way to my neck and I had on long pants that weren't tight and just my arms showing—and just feeling so beautiful. That was a f--king mindf--k for me," she recalls.

"That the fact that all the attention had to be on my face and that was so scary for me because I always wanted to distract people."
At the end of video for StyleLikeU's What's Underneath Project, Tallulah sits atop a wooden bar stool in only her undergarments and says she hopes to help other young women with similar issues.
It's empowering to say the least.
