Tallulah is Bruce Willis and Demi Moore's youngest daughter.

Tallulah Willis has been open about her eating disorder and substance abuse struggles for years, admitting she also took everyone with her to share her experiences at the rehab.

In a 2015 interview with Teen Vogue, Bruce Willis and Demi Moore's youngest daughter shared more details about her issues and the way she learned how to love herself.

"I recall very specifically: I was in a New York hotel room when I was 13 (before social media was such a huge thing), looking at a photo of myself online," she said. "I broke down in tears as I started to read the comments."

Tallulah continued, "I thought, I am a hideous, disgusting-looking person. I might be nice and I might be kind, but I'm a really unattractive human being. In that moment, a switch flipped. It wasn't about the anonymous cyberbullies—I became my own worst critic."

Years later, she admitted herself to Driftwood Recovery for her eating disorder — body dysmorphic disorder — which she was diagnosed with when she was only 13.

Christina Fulton blamed Nicolas Cage for their son's addiction.

Nicolas Cage's child with Christina Fulton, Weston Cage, had countless run-ins that led him to be on a psychiatric hold. One of the incidents happened in 2011 when Weston got involved in a violent incident outside a Hollywood restaurant.

"I do not want him with Nicolas Cage," Fulton said. "I do not want him in that care. That is not the care my son needs."

Following the arrest, Fulton's representative confirmed Weston's admission to a top-rated rehab center for a week.

"Weston is getting the help and support that he needs during this time," the representative said. "We are all hoping that he will be able to do it respectfully, in peace."

Ozzy Osbourne also went through his own addiction battles.

Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne's daughter Kelly Osbourne had endured rehab stays several times to help herself and her addiction problems.

"I believe everybody should have therapy. Your mind, body, and soul are the full package. I try and go once a week," she said of her weekly therapy in her memoir There is No F------ Secret: Letters From a Badass B----. "What I've learned is that no amount of therapy or medication is going to work unless you want it to. Until you want to be a good person, you will never be one."

After replacing, Kelly finally found a way to stay sober and manage her sanity.

Chet Hanks blamed his father, Tom Hanks, for his drug addiction.

Tom Hanks' son, Chet Hanks, started his first stint in rehab when he was 17. However, he relapsed as soon as he was discharged, leading him to lose his way. Chet then checked himself into rehab again for the second time, and things finally hit him afterward.

"I was at the lowest point in my life, completely lost. To the point where the hysteria went beyond the limits I knew. They wrecked me psychologically," he said of his struggles. "I was totally out of control. I wouldn't change my situation for anything. I love my parents. There are a lot of perks, but sometimes it can be quite strange."
