Ridiculousness on multiple levels.
For some reason, someone made a Rumer Willis Polly Pocket Doll to be auctioned off to raise money for children’s AIDS charities. I’ll give you a moment to process that.
Yeah, I know.
After making the sale, Ms. Willis waxed poetic on the difficulties of fame by saying,
“Before I started working, I would have said, ‘You know, it’s not really fair, because I didn’t choose this.’ But when you decide to be a part of this profession and put yourself out there, then you kind of have to accept what it is.” (source)
Yes. Because she is famous because of all of the work she’s done. Like Now and Then, which her mother starred in and produced. And then Striptease, which her mother also starred in. And don’t forget the Whole Nine Yards, starring her father. Oh and Hostage starring, guess who, her father. If Rumer Willis is famous because of her body of work, then Paris Hilton is famous for being a really great business woman.
But wait, it gets better: someone paid $5,500 to *own* this doll.
I can think of a lot of people who I would rather have a Polly Pocket version of. Like Frank Beamer. Or maybe Taye Diggs. No, definitely Taye Diggs. There are also lots of things I would rather spend $5,500 on. In fact, I might pay $5,500 so I wouldn’t have to own a Rumer Willis Polly Pocket Doll. It’d be like protection money, but like for charity.
