Demi Moore Seeking Treatment for ‘Stress,’ ‘Exhaustion’
(LOS ANGELES) -- Divorcing Ashton Kutcher seems to have been incredibly hard for Demi Moore. The 49-year-old actress has checked into a treatment center, her publicist told ABC News Tuesday in an email statement: “Because of the stresses in her life right now, Demi has chosen to seek professional assistance to treat her exhaustion and improve her overall health. She looks forward to getting well and is grateful for the support of her family and friends.”
TMZ reported earlier Tuesday that Moore was rushed to the hospital Monday night after a 911 call was placed from her Los Angeles home. She had been looking frail and tired since announcing her divorce from Kuthcher late last year amid reports of his infidelity.
Moore revealed some of her fears and stresses to Harper's Bazaar in a recent interview. “What scares me the most is not knowing and accepting that just about everything is not in my control,” she said. “That makes me feel unsafe.”
Since splitting from Kutcher, Moore has vacationed solo in Hawaii and taken on new movie roles, including playing feminist Gloria Steinem in an upcoming film, though her rep now tells TMZ that Moore has dropped out of that project. Still, the actress who was previously married to actor Bruce Willis said her other fear is not having the courage to reach her full potential, which would mean not finding love again.
“I would say what scares me is that I’m going to ultimately find out at the end of my life that I’m really not lovable, that I’m not worthy of being loved,” she said. “That there’s something fundamentally wrong with me.”
