Talk about awkward!

Rumer Willis, the 26-year-old daughter of actors Demi Moore and Bruce Willis, has revealed her true feelings about when her mom first began dating the 15-years-younger actor Ashton Kutcher in 2003. The Dancing With the Stars contestant confessed that Kutcher's poster once adorned her bedroom wall, but that it came down immediately.

"It was definitely weird for a minute, but I have to commend him," Willis told Howard Stern on his SiriusXM radio show Wednesday. "He was a really great stepfather. The perspective changed very quickly."

Willis — who was 15 when Moore and Kutcher got together — said she wasn't jealous her mom had snagged the handsome That '70s Show star.

"I was kind of impressed," she explained. "I was like, 'Yeah, girl, get it.'"

Here are a few other gems that came out of her conversation with the shock jock:

She's not dating her DWTS partner, Val Chmerkovskiy. No, really. "No way," she said when asked about reports suggesting otherwise.

"Listen, if you're in a room with someone for six hours a day and you're dating them and then you get in a fight, you're miserable. There's no way you'll ever win."

And Willis, who's one of seven remaining contestants, really wants to win. When Stern pointed out that Chmerkovskiy had accompanied Willis to New York, where The Howard Stern Show tapes, she explained that it was because she had to practice.

Her math skills are "crap." Willis confessed that she still has to use her fingers to do basic math, and couldn't give Howard the answer to six times eight. Blame it on the fact that during her elementary school years,  Rumer regularly traveled with her parents to various film sets and relied on tutors for her education. She attended a regular school as she got older. Still, she has no regrets about her upbringing.

"I don't think I would ever trade [growing up with famous parents], because there are so many things that I've gotten," she noted. "I was talking to someone the other day, and I said, 'My math skills are crap.' Basic math I still have to count on my hand. But the places I've been able to travel and the people I've been able to meet, I feel like there's a tradeoff."

She's not a fan of the original About Last Night. That's not too surprising, since the 1986 movie is about her mother's character dealing with the fallout from a one-night stand with a character played by Rob Lowe.

"I had a friend say to me once, 'You should watch About Last Night. It's such a great movie, you're mom's in it.' And I watched it, and I was like, 'Dude, I don't want to see my mom having sex with Rob Lowe. "No one, I don't think, wants to hear their parents engaged in any sort of sexual thing, so to have it on film was a little awkward."

Understood.

She totally gets that it's unusual for her divorced parents to get along so well. Rumer's A-list parents divorced in 2000 after 13 years of marriage, but they continue to be photographed together during family events. Don't they know Hollywood splits are supposed to be ugly?

"It's something that I commend them for so much," Rumer praised. "You know, they made such a huge effort that we never had to split up birthdays or vacations or anything like that. We literally would all go together. They had this weird thing where they literally just became friends, you know," she continued. "And I think they did such a good job of... making us the priority."

Both of Rumer's parents have cheered her on as she competes on the dance floor this season.
