Demi Moore Reveals Love-Hate Relationship With Her Body

January 5, 2012

Demi Moore opens up over her struggle with body image – revealing a weakness for French fries – but says she’s comfortable being “extremely thin.”

“I think I sit today in a place of greater acceptance of my body,” she says in the February issue of US Harper’s Bazaar, “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.'”

The 49-year-old actress shocked many late last year with her much-thinner frame, just before announcing her separation from Ashton Kutcher after rumours of his infidelity.

“I have had a love-hate relationship with my body,” she revealed. “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.”

Moore also candidly discussed her fear of not being loved, saying: “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 love. That there’s something fundamentally wrong with me.”
