Rumer Willis was “terrified” to fly with jewelry worth more than her life insurance, for fear she’d misplace it.
The eldest daughter of Demi Moore and Bruce Willis is no stranger to wearing dazzling gems on the red carpet, but the trinkets she wears on special occasions are often rented. This means it’s her responsibility to look after the pieces, and sometimes the actress can’t help but worry she may lose something.
“I mean, good luck,” she quipped to Elle.com when asked what happens if a celebrity borrows jewelry and then loses it. “I thought I'd lost a pair of earrings once. They were like $50,000 (£41,000). I was terrified. I've been on a plane before with more money in jewelry than my life insurance policy, and it's one of the scariest feelings in the world... if you lose it, you have to pay for it yourself, and you don't even get to keep it!”
Rumer continued to recall how she’s been on photoshoots where there have been security guards keeping an eye on the expensive baubles on set. She finds it hard to believe that diamonds and other precious stones can cause such an “uproar”, however reality star Kim Kardashian’s recent robbery in Paris reminded her of just how much they are sought after.
“These random rocks can cause such drama. I mean, you can get robbed... as we've recently seen,” she sighed.
The 28-year-old recently attended a dinner to celebrate jewelry designer Loree Rodkin’s line of scented pieces with luxury eco-friendly perfume brand By Kilian, of which Rumer is the new face. The star put her cabaret tour on hold to drop by the bash as she’s a massive fan of Loree.
“I think she's one of the most stylish, coolest women in the world. She's so chic. I think when I grow up, I want to be Loree,” Rumer gushed.
