Demi Moore covers Harper\’s Bazaar\’s February 2012 issue wearing a Tom Ford dress, as photographed by CÃ©dric Buchet and interviewed by longtime friend Amanda De Cadenet.
Inside Demi shares:
On her body image: “I think I sit today in a place of greater acceptance of my body, 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.” I find peace when I don\’t see my body as my enemy, when I step back and have appreciation and look at all that my body has done for me.”
“I have had a love-hate relationship with my body,” she says. “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.”
On her fears: “I used to think that what scared me was the idea of being abandoned until someone said to me, â€˜Only children can be abandoned. Adults can\’t be abandoned because we have a choice. Children don\’t have a choice.\’ So I started to rethink. â€˜Okay, it\’s not that. What\’s the underlying thread that really scares me?\’ I think what scares me is not having the courage to reach my full potential.”
Her Guilty Pleasure: “Watching Jersey Shore, because it’s such a train wreck. It’s excessive behavior being rewarded, which in truth is painful to watch, but you just can’t look away! [Laughs.]”
