A New Memoir
Actress Demi Moore wrote a memoir called Inside Out that is set to hit bookstores this week, recounting her childhood, her life as an actres,s and all that she has learned over the years. In an interview with The New York Times, Moore opened up about her split with Ashton Kutcher and how the divorce left her deeply shaken.
Opening Up About Her Mental Health
Moore opened up about how her marriage to Kutcher began to crumble after she had a miscarriage and then began using Vicodin and alcohol to cope with the loss.
A Devastating Split
According to a source in People, Moore went through a deep depression after her divorce from Kutcher.
"Separating from Ashton was just a nightmare for her. It took her years to get over it. She was always very insecure about their age difference and it was devastating that Ashton left her."
"She had so much self-blame and resentment towards herself after the split. She was really struggling mentally and didnâ€™t take care of herself."
She's In A Much Better Place Now
People's source also explained that Moore was in a much better place now and that writing the memoir was a deeply cathartic experience.
"She really has changed a lot for the better in the past few years. You can tell that she is much happier and enjoys her life more. She goes to therapy and works on being a positive and kind person to herself."
"She wanted to free herself of the trauma and heartbreak endured after her split from Ashton, but it was a struggle. Demi has been trying to improve her life, gain self-esteem and get healthy for several years. Spilling it all out in a personal memoir is a way to close the old door and open new ones."
Inside Out will be available for purchase on September 24th.
