The life of actress Demi Moore perfectly captures the ups-and-downs of being a leading lady in Hollywood. Despite the extensive media coverage surrounding Moore’s multiple marriages and lengthy hiatus from filmmaking, there is still much about the actress that people don’t know. Now, Moore is ready to bare it all in her new memoir.

Inside Out sees Moore reflecting on her troubled childhood and the choices she made that led her to where she is now. Moore goes in-depth into her strained relationship with her mother, who attempted suicide when she was 12. The most shocking revelation in this section is that Moore was raped when she was 15, which caused her to move out of her mother’s house at 16. This is where Moore began to pursue a career in acting, which lead to a breakout role on General Hospital that blossomed into a successful film career.

In an interview with The New York Times, Moore said that talking about these traumatic events gave more a new sense of vulnerability that she had never experienced before:
“It’s exciting, and yet I feel very vulnerable. There is no cover of a character. It’s not somebody else’s interpretation of me.”
Moore is well-known for starring in several box-office successes in the 80’s and 90’s such as About Last Night, Indecent Proposal, Ghost, and A Few Good Men, but her career stalled after a string of flops. Her marriages to both Bruce Willis and Ashton Kutcher were the subject of intense media scrutiny, and the high salaries that she received for her work led to public shaming by many.
But Moore has nothing to apologize for. In an interview with GMA, Moore is proud of her accomplishments:
“Why shouldn’t I? Why shouldn’t all women be paid equal to the quality of the work they’re doing? Just treat me the same. No better, no worse.”
