Rumer Willis Selected as 2008 Miss Golden Globe at 65th Annual Golden Globe Awards to Be Telecast Live on NBC on Jan. 13

Rumer Is Daughter of Demi Moore and Bruce Willis

HOLLYWOOD, CA--(Marketwire - November 14, 2007) - The Hollywood Foreign Press Association today announced Rumer Willis as its selection as Miss Golden Globe for "The 65th Annual Golden Globe Awards" to be telecast live on NBC on Sunday, January 13, 2008. HFPA President Jorge Camara made the announcement at a morning press conference. Traditionally, Miss Golden Globe, who assists in the Golden Globes ceremony, is the daughter of a well-known celebrity.

Rumer, age 19, is the daughter of two-time Golden Globe nominee Demi Moore and Bruce Willis, who received four Golden Globe nominations and a Golden Globe as Best Actor in a Television Series (Comedy or Musical) for "Moonlighting."

"We are delighted to have Rumer Willis join us to celebrate 'The 65th Annual Golden Globe Awards,'" said Camara at the announcement. "Since both of her parents have enjoyed successful entertainment careers in the acting profession, she is doubly qualified to serve as Miss Golden Globe."

Rumer Glenn Willis was born August 16th, 1988 and currently resides in Southern California. She was named after British novelist Rumer Godden. She made her film debut at the age of five in the movie "Now and Then." She continued acting alongside her parents in such films as "Striptease," "The Whole Nine Yards" and "Hostage." After graduating high school, she attended USC for a few semesters, until she decided to pursue acting full time. Since spreading her acting wings, Rumer has completed two films to be released in 2008. She most recently wrapped "I Know What Boys Like" opposite Anna Faris and Collin Hanks at Sony and the independent "From Within" directed by Phedon Papamichael, starring Adam Goldberg and Thomas Dekker.

Previous Miss Golden Globe honorees include Lorraine Nicholson (daughter of Jack Nicholson and Rebecca Broussard), Laura Dern (daughter of Diane Ladd and Bruce Dern), Joely Fisher (daughter of Connie Stevens and Eddie Fisher), and Melanie Griffith (daughter of Tippi Hedren).
