Ever since rift rumors about Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher began, the 49-year-old actress has been scrutinized for her shrinking size. In the February issue of Harper's Bazaar, she candidly addresses the body buzz.
"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 ...," says Demi, who is in the process of divorcing Kutcher. "I have had a love-hate relationship with my body. 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." Is she comfortable with her body today? "I think a better word than comfortable is accepting," says Demi. "Accepting weaknesses and strengths and being more able to celebrate all of it as a whole package." The new issue hits newsstands Jan. 17. (Bazaar)
