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.


Reading about Demi just made me realize that people who are mega-rich still have their own problems. It might not be money & how they are going to pay their bills but it's obvious that Demi has extremely self esteem issues that branch out to her body imagine to her self worth. I guess it is true: money sure doesn't buy happiness cause Demi sure didn't sound like a happy person in a peaceful, fulfilling life to me.
