Demi Moore Gets Candid About Her Weight Loss And Fears

Demi Moore gets candid in the February issue of Harper’s Bazaar about her fear of not being able to be loved and the ongoing struggle she has with her body image.

The ‘Margin Call’ actress, who ended her six year marriage to the Two and Half Men star Ashton Kutcher this past fall sat down with longtime friend Amanda de Cadenet where she was open and seemingly serene.

On the topic of her weight which took center stage when Demi walked the red carpet premiere for “Margin Call” Demi stated, “I have had a love-hate relationship with my body.” As news of Ashton’s infidelity grew more incessant, Demi appeared to be disappearing in front of the public’s eye.

“I think 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 age to now experiencing my body as extremely thin – thin in a way that I never imagined somebody would be saying to me, ‘You’re too thin, and you don’t look good.’ ”

Intertwined within the battle of her body image was the question of self love. Just days prior to Demi’s premiere, Ashton’s mistress Sara Leal made the cover of Us Weekly disclosing details of she and Ashton’s affair the weekend of Ashton and Demi’s sixth year anniversary. It’s not hard to imagine why any woman would question her self worth after her husband cheats on their anniversary weekend.

“If I were to answer it just kind of bold-faced, I would say 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 loved. That there’s something fundamentally wrong with me … What scares me the most is not knowing and accepting that just about everything is not in my control. That makes me feel unsafe.”

Demi being this candid about her weight loss and the elusiveness of love hopefully brings her peace on both fronts.
