Before Rumer Willis took the stage for Dancing With The Stars, she sat down with A Drink With in The Commons Club to talk Hollywood, “DWTS” and bad haircuts. Click here for the full interview.

ADW: THANK YOU FOR SQUEEZING IN A COFFEE AT VIRGIN HOTELS. DO YOU THRIVE ON BEING ON THE ROAD OR ARE YOU MORE OF A HOMEBODY?
RW: I like both. I think after a certain period of time, if you are on the road long enough you can sometimes get a bit tired of living out of a suitcase, but I think it’s fun. I had no idea that Chicago had such a huge theater community. It’s probably just my ignorance, but I think it’s great.

ADW: YOUR “DANCING WITH THE STARS” PARTNER, VAL CHMERKOVSKIY, IS HERE IN CHICAGO WITH YOU TO PRACTICE WHILE YOU’RE IN TOWN PERFORMING IN “FOR THE RECORD: DEAR JOHN HUGHES”. “DWTS” IS NOT A JOKE!
RW: It’s a lot. It’s a lot of hard work, and it’s a whole different way of moving your body and carrying yourself. I noticed within the first two days of rehearsal that my posture changed, and even how I walked into a room and carried myself has shifted a little bit.

RumerWillis-3956ADW: IS REHEARSAL HARDER THAN YOU EXPECTED?
RW: My back and lats are so sore. It’s definitely hard. I think I had a totally different conception of what dancing was. I thought it was all very free and throwing your body around. I realized it’s a lot more about the stillness and having the strength.

ADW: IF YOU COULD HAVE A DRINK WITH ANYONE, WHO WOULD IT BE?
RW: I would love to have a drink with Etta James. That would be amazing. I would just want to talk to her about everything and be that horrible person that is like, “Can you please just sing to me while we’re sitting here?”
