In a new interview with “Good Morning America’s” Diane Sawyer, Demi Moore, 56, is opening up about her past marriage to Ashton Kutcher, 41.
Moore confirmed that she found out about Kutcher’s alleged cheating from a Google Alert. She claimed, “He admitted it right away and I think my response was, ‘Are you f**king kidding me?’ That was it. And I think I could barely take a breath."
They finalized their divorce in 2013, two years after their separation. She revealed, “I lost me. I think the thing if I were to look back, I would say I blinded myself and I lost myself.”
Demi also reflected on the miscarriage she suffered during their six-year marriage. She had lost the baby at 6 months, learning the news from her doctor. She said, “You could see a combination of his dread. And it shifting then immediately into matter-of-fact, practical information — because it was unquestionable, because there was no heartbeat."
After several failed attempts to get pregnant, Moore turned to prescription pills and alcohol. She admitted, “I really lost sight of everything that was in front of me, which is the family I had."
Before Demi and Ashton got together, she was married to Bruce Willis for more than 10 years. Demi recalled when she and Ashton first started dating in 2003, sharing, “He loved my children — it wasn't something he feared. He seemed to be comfortable with the enormity of the ex-husband. I mean, you know, I felt like I was not coming with baggage, I had trunks."
Ahead of the release of her memoir “Inside Out,” which goes into more detail about their failed union, Kutcher has been spotted out in public with wife Mila Kunis. They appeared to be a united front at Saturday’s Los Angeles Dodgers game. He has not publicly commented on Demi’s book.
On Monday, Demi celebrated the book release at a party attended by Bruce and their three daughters, Rumer, Tallulah and Scout. Gwyneth Paltrow was also on hand to support Demi.
In the book, Demi also admitted that she cheated on her first husband, Freddy Moore, one night before their wedding. She wrote, “The night before we got married, instead of working on my vows, I was calling a guy I’d met on a movie set. I snuck out of my own bachelorette party and went to his apartment.”
“Why did I do that? Why didn’t I go and see the man I was committing to spend the rest of my life with to express my doubts? Because I couldn’t face the fact that I was getting married to distract myself from grieving the death of my father,” she continued. “Because I felt there was no room to question what I’d already put in motion. I couldn’t get out of the marriage, but I could sabotage it.”
Is she dating anyone nowadays? She recently told Ellen DeGeneres, “[I’m single] by choice.” When asked if she has tried any of the dating apps, Demi laughed, answering, “No.”
“Inside Out” is out now.
