American actress, former songwriter, and model, Demi Moore, 56, has posed completely nude on the cover of a Harper Bazaar Magazine’s latest issue.
On reviving her mother from an overdose at a young age: “The next thing I remember is using my fingers, the small fingers of a child, to dig the pills my mother had tried to swallow out of her mouth while my father held it open and told me what to do. Something very deep inside me shifted then, and it never shifted back. My childhood was over.”
On the public’s perception of her past: “Everything that occurs in our individual lives informs us. Shifting, molding, presenting the opportunities for the exact purpose to get us where we are in the present time.
Whatever that may be. All the projecting of who they think I am [were] the very things that were pushing me out of two elements: my comfort zone, and my control. [They were] trying to get me to let go and really be who I am. And I don’t think that I knew how to do that.”
On her kids: “’My daughters offered me an opportunity to start to change the generational pattern. To be able to break the cycles …’ Motherhood, she says, was her only absolute goal and the only destiny she can be sure she’s fulfilled, and that includes ‘mothering myself."
Remember Moore was married to Bruce Willis and later to Ashton Kutcher.
