Demi Moore has made a frank confession in her latest interview with Harper’s Bazaar that she fears she isn’t worthy of being loved.
Demi Moore, 49, made the startling statement to her friend Amanda de Cadenet during an interview in the February issue of the US magazine.
The actress revealed she originally feared being abandoned but said her biggest fear now is “not having the courage to reach her full potential”.
Demi Moore explained: “There is no way to reach your fullest potential if you don’t really find the love of yourself.
“What scares me is that I’m going to ultimately find out at the end of my life that I’m really not lovable, that I’m not worthy of being love. That there’s something fundamentally wrong with me.”
Demi Moore also opened up about her body image, which has been the subject of much speculation following her split from Ashton Kutcher.
She admitted to having a “love-hate relationship” with her body but said she had a more positive feeling towards it now compared to her feelings in the past.
“I sit today in a place of greater acceptance of my body and that includes not just my weight but all of the things that come with your changing body as you as age to now experiencing my body as extremely thin.”
She added: “Thin in a way that I never imagined somebody would be saying to me, <<You’re too thin, and you don’t look good>>.”
While she has displayed a shockingly slim frame in recent months, Demi Moore looks happy and healthy in the accompanying photo shoot showing off her frame in a strapless beaded dress by Balmain, and a cut out black swimsuit by Gucci.
The interview comes ahead of Demi Moore and Amanda de Cadenet’s latest project, a television show called The Conversation which, comes to Lifetime television this Spring.
A-List stars including Gwyneth Paltrow, Lady Gaga and Jane Fonda are among the women who have spoken out about the challenges they face in their daily lives, with Demi Moore and Amanda de Cadenet acting as executive producers.
Following her recent split from Ashton Kutcher, Demi Moore appears to be throwing herself into her work and it has been reported that she is appearing in the upcoming movie Lovelace.
Demi Moore is said to be taking on the role of feminist Gloria Steinem according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The full interview is available in the February issue of Haper’s Bazaar which hits newsstands on January 17.
