Actress Demi Moore has certainly had a controversial personal life for everyone to follow. Be it her statements on several issues or her multiple marriages, Moore has gone through a lot and still has been entirely vocal about it.
In a recent interview with New York Times, Moore talked about a miscarriage she suffered while dating Ashton Kutcher. Moore and Kutcher were dating since 2003 and the actress was pregnant with a girl that she planned to name Chaplin Ray but lost the child six months into her pregnancy, which led her to start drinking again as a coping mechanism while she blamed herself for the loss, the Times reports.
Moore and Kutcher later got married in 2005 and she underwent fertility treatments in hopes of becoming pregnant again, the Times reports, adding that throughout the marriage, Moore's drinking worsened and she began to abuse Vicodin.
Of her relationship with Kutcher, which immediately drew attention for their 15-year age gap, Moore says that the experience felt like, “a do-over, like I could just go back in time and experience what it was like to be young, with him — much more so than I’d ever been able to experience it when I was actually in my twenties.”
The actress credits the book for helping her "healing journey" on emotional, physical and mental levels.
"It’s exciting, and yet I feel very vulnerable," she says about the upcoming release of the memoir. "There is no cover of a character. It’s not somebody else’s interpretation of me."
She adds that writing the memoir was a necessary part of her process to rediscover herself through the accomplishments and setbacks of her life. "I had to figure out why to do this because my own success didn’t drive me," she says.
