Scout LaRue Willis is the daughter of famous movie stars Bruce Willis and Demi Moore. Unfortunately, her parents divorced in 1998 when she was seven years old.

She then played a young girl in the comedy “Breakfast of Champions” (1999), in which her father Bruce played the protagonist. Scout’s parents only allowed her to appear in the films they are working in due to her aging and Hollywood’s exploitative nature.
Perhaps Scout’s most notable role was in the comedy thriller drama “Bandits” (2001), in which she was cast as a young Monica Miller. The film, in which his father starred alongside industry stalwarts such as Cate Blanchett and Billy Bob Thornton, received two Golden Globe nominations. Scout was also honored for her performance, but she was not seen in any other film after that. The reason for this could be his lack of interest in acting or his education which needs more attention.

She worked as a wardrobe intern for the film “Streak” (2008) before turning into the crew of the film “Moonrise Kingdom” (2012) as a costume intern.
