Demi Moore Covers 'Harper's Bazaar' February 2012

Demi Moore covers Harper’s Bazaar‘s February 2012 issue, on newsstands Tuesday (January 17).

The 49-year-old actress was interviewed by her longtime friend Amanda De Cadenet for the mag. Here’s what Demi had to share:

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.”

On her fears: “I used to think that what scared me was the idea of being abandoned until someone said to me, ‘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. ‘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.”

    Wow poor Demi… She has a sad expression on her face

  • Mikaela

    Is it just me or this article is the biggest bs?? She is confortable with her body? She looks like about to drop dead in hunger, and she is indeed afraid of being abandoned. 3 Failed marriages proves that you’re not in peace with yourself to take care of somebody else. Think about that.

  • Alicia

    Well. I love Amanda de cadenet anyway.

  • stacey

    she looks old.

  • From Paris with Love

    What does her first sentence even mean ? o_O
    how stupid and blind does she think we are, she’s had tons of plastic surgery and she is sickly thin, stop the lies.

  • Ashton Kutcher

    Wow, that’s so deep. What a poet.

  • dud

    what a bull!! please, even I don’t buy it, she’s so full of sh1t!

  • Purple Poet

    She needs to go away already. Her 15 minutes should have been up after the early 90s ended. She’s so vain and always out for press attention and wants it to be all about her body. She pays her publicists to leak stories that make her look like the hot, ageless milf. It’s pathetic.

  • jessa

    of course adults can be abandoned because the adult being abandoned did not choose that. the abandoner chose. that’s why it’s called being abandoned, because one of the parties did not choose that. but whatever you need to do to get through it i guess demi………….

  • realist

    all she needs to do is accept the fact she is aging. I suppose that’s too much for a vain person like her. Considering how beautiful she has always been yes she should indeed step back and consider all the good things her body has done for her. Grow up, Demi.

  • sam

    she is so up her own azz….

  • Carina

    She is gorgeous!

    Demi was abandoned by her father and her mother was bipolar with a drug and alcohol addiction. She didn’t speak to her mother for years because her mom was so crazy and toxic. Her mom was arrested many times and tried to ruin Demi’s career. When her mother had cancer, she reconciled and stayed by her side. I have compassion for those who have had tough childhoods. They are navigating through life just like the rest of us. We all do the best that we can and empathy allows us to put ourselves in another’s shoes. May she continue on her path with grace.

    Ashton is such a terrible sick perosn

  • Ummm

    Sounds like some of Aniston’s dumb dribble.

    PHOTOSHOP was working overtime when it came to this magazine spread. Where are all of her wrinkles?? Demi is so skinny that her face is sinking in and is completely covered with wrinkles. Yet in these photos, her cheekbones look like those of a healthy (weight) woman. Her face also looks a little fuller than usual. I am beyond tired of seeing “celebrities” using photoshop. Half the time they don’t even look like their own darn self. If you are going to pose infront of a camera. Use the photos that appear, not the photos that have been altered to change her physical appearance. Show us what Demi is TRULY working with.

  • yep

    i appreciate her honesty! maybe now she is at point that she can accept aging, we all grow and change and relationships changes and we have to move forward and now she seems like she is ready too. happiness to you demi!
