Rumer Willis says she grew up feeling self-conscious about her looks.

Rumer Willis has lashed out at a magazine for Photoshopping her chin in a fashion spread, saying she feels "bullied".

The 27-year-old daughter of Demi Moore and Bruce Willis posted the "offensive" image on her Instagram page, with a call for friends to delete it from their pages.

"Any friends or fans of mine who posted this I would appreciate if you took it down," she wrote.

"The photographer Photoshopped my face to make my jaw smaller and I find it really offensive for anyone to try and change the way you look so drastically.

"I love the way I look and I won't support anyone who would feel a need to change the way I look to make me beautiful. Whether or not they realise it, it is a form of bullying, which I won't stand for."

Her post has been liked thousands of times and attracted many supportive replies.

"Agree @ruelarue you are beautiful just the way you are, and you should be proud of the way God made you. Thanks for making such a powerful statement against this issue", one fan wrote. 

"Thank you for speaking out! And shame on the photographer! I think you are all stunning btw" and, "Rumer your jaw defines you - strong and beautiful - you will be the Barbra Streisand of our generation...voice and acting talent, brains and beauty! xo," others added.

The image was from a recent Vanity Fair shoot also featuring Willis' sisters Tallulah and Scout, E! reported.

Willis has spoken in the past about growing up feeling self-conscious about her looks.

"When you grow up in the public eye the way that I did, everyone's looking at you and waiting for you to do something crazy or say something wrong or have a meltdown," she told Glamour magazine in 2015.

"I was constantly bullied because of my looks, so I struggled a lot with my body image. I wanted to have no butt; I wanted to have no boobs.

"For a long time I just wanted to look tiny and androgynous."

She told US Weekly she used to compare herself unfavourably to her mother, Demi Moore.

"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."
