Demi Moore Opens Up: What's Her Biggest Fear?

by at . Comments

Demi Moore gets up close and personal in the latest issue of Harper's Bazaar.

Giving her first in-depth interview since splitting from Ashton Kutcher, the actress - who recently landed a major movie role - talks candidly about her biggest fears and insecurities in life.

“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," Moore tells the magazine. "That there's something fundamentally wrong with me... that I wasn't wanted here in the first place."

Wow. Talk about honesty.

The actress goes on to address issues of abandonment, saying someone once told her that adults have a "choice" and that worry shouldn't be a concern.

"So I started to rethink. ‘Okay, it’s not that. What’s the underlying thread that really scares me?’ I think what scares me is not having the courage to reach my full potential," she admits.

And it hasn't helped, the star adds, that she's struggled with body image for years. She's only just started to feel okay when she looks in a mirror.

“I think I sit today in a place of greater acceptance of my body," Moore says. "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.” I find peace when I don’t see my body as my enemy, when I step back and have appreciation and look at all that my body has done for me.”

That's very good to hear, but it doesn't change the fact that Moore should eat a cheeseburger or two. She is too thin these days.

Now she knows what it feels like to grow older. some people grow old gracefully and some really have a hard time with aging. get over it, what did you expect, you got a younger man, way to go, then he got some fame and left you. Go get another younger man if that is what you want, but regardless of what you do, you have to accept the fact you are aging and you don't have the body of a 20 year old, BUT you are still a beautiful woman and will be even if you live to be a 100.
Oh what I would give to be your age. Smile you are still living and sometimes it's hell getting older and looking in mirror, but that's part of the aging process, so get over it and live, life is too short to not be happy.

I think Demi has a lot more going in her life, than some people. She is beautiful, intelligent, has a very well going career in the movie business, is successful with men, since I know she is cherished by many, it's obvious. So please Mrs. Moore, try to be strong, I know you are caring and open, but don't let this get too you too much, that's what I want to let you know. Life is hard sometimes, so try to get back to your strengths, and don't let anything pull you down too much. That's what I do.
