It has been reported in recent weeks that Demi Moore has been worrying friends amid claims she’s “struggling to cope” with split from Ashton Kutcher.
But on Wednesday night, Demi Moore single-handedly dismissed the reports as she attended a charity gala.
Demi Moore, 49, glowed as she posed up for photographs inside the Girls Educational and Mentoring Services Benefit Gala in New York City.
The actress also cut a much healthier figure than she has at previous red carpet events.
Despite having previously sparked concern with her scarily skinny figure, Demi Moore appeared to have gained some weight, and showed off her new figure in a fitted patterned dress.
Earlier in the evening, Demi Moore had chosen not to walk the red carpet into the event, instead opting to head inside via a side entrance.
However, once inside the event, Demi Moore was happy to pose up for photographs, both alone and the charity director Rachel Lloyd.
Demi Moore was there to help bring in cash for GEMS – which was founded in 1998 while currently being the largest service provider to commercially sexually exploited and domestically trafficked girls in the United States.
The event included the reading of excerpts from the memoir of Rachel Lloyd, read by stars including Jada Pinkett Smith, Natasha Lyonne, and India Arie.
It was claimed recently that Demi Moore has been finding it difficult to cope with news of estranged husband Ashton Kutcher’s relationship with Mila Kunis.
Ashton Kutcher, 34, has been stepping out regularly with Mila Kunis and often putting on public displays of affection.
After Ashton Kutcher’s indiscretions with a woman in San Diego on their sixth wedding anniversary in 2001 were exposed, Demi Moore is said to be getting increasingly embarrassed by his antics.
A source told People magazine: “Her friends aren’t convinced she’s all better.”
In August Demi Moore attended an 80s-themed birthday party for friend and actress Soleil Moon Frye in which one partygoer described her as “a little more subdued that she’s been in the past”.
The magazine also reveals that as well as Moore, his friends were surprised by Ashton Kutcher’s romance with Mila Kunis.
A friend said: “I would have never believed Ashton could get serious this fast.
“He was so happy to get out from under the stagnant relationship with Demi that he was overeager to play around and have fun. But it didn’t take long to bring him home again.”
