Family will always stay family.

Last week, Rumer Willis penned a beautifully-written essay for Glamour in which she detailed her own personal struggle with online bullying, and how she was able to overcome her battles with negative body image to become the confident young woman she is today.

Her message of inner beauty resonated with millions of readers…

Including her former step-dad, Ashton Kutcher!

On Monday, the actor posted on his Facebook a link to an article about his former step-daughter’s inspiring words, as well as the following message:

It’s amazing that you’re telling your story and speaking up for other women.

We completely agree!

In fact, the Jobs star elaborated on his comment in a follow-up response to a fan.

He exclaimed:

“It’s such an empowering thing to see a woman standing up for other women and young girls. She’s going against the grain and that’s exactly what needs to be done. She’s helping other girls realize that they don’t need validation from others- they are their own beautiful, with their own confidence.”

In Willis’ essay, the 26-year-old urges society to become more compassionate towards one another.

She wrote:

“What it comes down to is this: We all need to stop bullying ourselves and being cruel to other women. Attacking one another instead of supporting one another has become the norm. Life’s hard enough as it is. Let’s find strength in the fact that we’re different and unique.”

This isn’t the first time Kutcher has showed support for the Dancing With The Stars winner!

As we reported, when the Sorority Row actress was in the finals on the competition show, Ashton went on Twitter to tell his many followers to vote for her!

And it worked!!

We are so touched that the two still have a great relationship, and we echo Rumer’s articulate words of finding the beauty within yourself!
