How does it feel to be 55+ and pen down all the details of your life which will be opened to public scrutiny? You know, details of which are ugly, really ugly and disturbing at times? Was it cathartic, liberating, or just come with a basic satisfaction that’ yep, I said it all loud, No Regerts’? Well, maybe Moore is having all of the three while she is giving interviews at Good Morning America where she talks about her new memoir ‘Inside Out’.
Just like the title indicates, Demi has really laid her heart on the table with this one. She talked at length about her marriage with Ashton and a miscarriage that would break her sobriety of 20 years!
Demi and Ashton: The Start of the Devastating End
Demi was 40 years old when she met 25-year-old Ashton Kutcher, grappling with the fame of “That 70s Show”. There were at a huge talking point in the media as well because of the large age gap between them. Describing her life at that point, she said:
I was a 40-year-old who had a big life. And Ashton’s adult life was just beginning — I didn’t see all that because I was inside of it. I just felt like a 15-year-old girl hoping somebody liked me.
[Kutcher] loved my children — it wasn’t something he feared. He seemed to be comfortable with the enormity of the ex-husband. I mean, you know, I felt like I was not coming with baggage, I had trunks.
And then came the pregnancy woes. Demi revealed that she suffered a miscarriage at 42 after being 6 months into pregnancy. She also said she and Ashton tried Vitro fertilization methods but nothing really worked out. That is when she started drinking again and taking a dozen Vicodin pills each day, after staying clean for 2 decades.
And there were more struggles to the marriage than she thought. She’s admitted that she and Ashton often indulged in threesomes, something which Ashton suggested and she complied to ‘keep up’. She said:
I wanted to show him how great and fun I could be.
However, that also given Ashton a free pass (in his mind) to astray from the marriage vows later on. Demi revealed she got to know about Ashton’s infidelity via Google alert! And when she confronted him, he didn’t even deny it. She recalled:
Because we had brought a third party into our relationship, Ashton said, that blurred the lines and, to some extent, justified what he’d done. And I think my response was, ‘Are you fucking kidding me?’ That was it. And I think I could barely take a breath.
They were officially separated in November 2011 and got a divorce settlement in 2013. Around this time, Ashton started dating his “That ’70s Show” co-star Mila Kunis. Demi, however, after their official quit, went through a breakdown and entered rehab.
Demi, in her own words, described the whole cheating scandal as devastating. We can only imagine how taxing it could be to learn through tabloid reports that your husband is cheating!
