Demi Moore on Her Love-Hate Relationship with Her Body
Actress Demi Moore graces the February cover of Harper's Bazaar, in which she chats with her friend, Amanda de Cadenet.
Their daring new show, "The Conversation," debuts this spring, and the two longtime pals opened up to Harper's about body image, relationships, and finding freedom from fear.
Moore said, "I have had a love-hate relationship with my body. When I'm at the greatest odds with my body, it's usually because I feel my body's betraying me, whether that's been in the past, struggling with my weight and feeling that I couldn't eat what I wanted to eat, or that I couldn't get my body to do what I wanted it to do."
On their fears, Amanda admitted to being scared by "infidelity. It scares me when it happens to my friends; it scares me that it's going to happen to me."
Demi said she was afraid of being unloved. "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."
But the "Margin Call" actress does believe that living life in the moment is what freedom is all about. "Letting go of the outcome. Truly being in the moment. Not reflecting on the past. Not projecting into the future. That's freedom. Not caring more about what other people think than what you think. That's freedom."
