Opens Up About Her Early Struggles
SHE WENT TO REHAB to deal with addiction issues in the 1980s, and now Demi Moore is sharing details of her path to sobriety. “Early in my career, I was spiraling down a path of real self-destruction and no matter what success I had, I just never felt good enough,” Demi said at the recent Peggy Albrecht Friendly House Luncheon in Beverly Hills. “I had absolutely no value for myself. This self-destructive path very quickly brought me to a real crisis point.” She credits “two people I barely knew [who] stepped up and took a stand for me.” Those good Samaritans “gave me a chance to redirect the course of my life before I destroyed everything,” said Demi, 55. “Clearly, they saw more in me than I saw in myself. I’m so grateful because without that opportunity, without their belief in me, I wouldn’t be standing here today.”
“I’m grateful for my daughters,” says Demi, with Rumer and Scout (notpictured: Tallulah).
