“There Were Moments Where I Would Get Angry”: Demi Moore’s Daughters Say She Turned Into A “Monster” After Relapse

Date November 4, 2019

Demi Moore is big on-screen and for many of her fans, the St. Elmo’s Fire star was the embodiment of female excellence in the film industry. But in her newly released memoir, Inside Out, the actress bares out her soul, sharing intimate struggles, setbacks, and heartwarming achievements with the world.

In Inside Out, she takes readers on a journey, sharing with them her relationships with the most important people in her life, revealing that things are not always as they seem. She tells it all, from her marriages with Bruce Willis and Ashton Kutcher, divorce, her regrettable stints in rehab, and sobriety.

With her book, she gives fans a chance to understand her like they never had before.

Demi Moore’s daughters say relapse turned her into a “monster”

While things have worked out beautifully for the 56-year-old actress, her past was troubling and hurtful to her family. Recalling their experiences on Red Table Talk, her daughters Scout and Tallulah Willis said that when she relapsed, “it was like the sun went down, and a monster came.”

While sitting next to her mother on the show, Tallulah confessed that she was always anxious when her mom was not sober.

I remember, there's just the anxiety that would come up in my body when I could sense her eyes shutting a little bit more…

For any child, seeing your parent change before your eyes can be damaging and for Scout and Tallulah, who shunned her behavior, Demi Moore was too much work.

And there were moments where I would get angry and I recall being very upset and kind of treating her like a child, and speaking to her like a child.

Demi Moore, whose own mother and stepfather were alcoholics, tried to be a good example to her kids and while she suffered a few public humiliation, she remained strong and overcame it all.

Rumer Willis defended her mom’s openness about Ashton Kutcher

For other people, Demi Moore’s book was “too honest” and a few felt that she had no right to talk about some issues, especially her marriage to Ashton Kutcher.

In an interview on The Talk, Rumer Willis defended her mom’s decision to speak about the marriage and the fact that Ashton cheated on her twice.

What I really respect about her is that she is never the victim in her stories. She takes accountability. She takes responsibility. This is her perspective, her story.

Rumer added that her mom was not just writing a book, she was taking accountability, sharing her difficult times, and celebrating her triumphs as a survivor. Demi Moore’s life is a testament that no matter how hard situations can look, it is possible to arise from them stronger and better.
