The 56-year-old actress is coming out with a memoir titled Inside Out, a “deeply candid and insightful” look at her life, HarperCollins announced on Thursday.
According to the press release, Moore doesn’t hold back discussing the ups and downs she faced on her rise to fame and is forthright when talking about her battles with addiction and body image.
The Ghost star will also open up about her three high-profile marriages. Moore was married to musician Freddy Moore from 1980 to 1985. In 1987, she married Bruce Willis, and the two have three daughters, 30-year-old Rumer, 27-year-old Scout and 25-year-old Tallulah. Willis and Moore divorced in 2000. Five years later, Moore married Ashton Kutcher, who is 16 years her junior. The two divorced in 2013.
“Inside Out is first and foremost a woman’s story; that the woman in question happens to be one of the most celebrated actresses of our time only makes her journey of vulnerability, strength, and self-acceptance all that more resonant,” HarperCollins’ Jennifer Barth said in a statement. “I think readers are going to be surprised -- and moved -- by this book, which Harper is extremely proud to publish.”
Inside Out is to be released on Sept. 24.
This won’t be the first time Moore has been brutally honest about her past. Last October, the two-time Golden Globe nominee opened up about her “self-destructive" past when she was honored with the Woman of the Year Award by the Peggy Albrecht Friendly House.
“I feel like there are defining moments in our lives that shape who we are and the direction we go, and early in my career, I was spiraling down a path of real self-destruction, and no matter what successes I had, I just never felt good enough,” Moore admitted. “I had absolutely no value for myself, and this self-destructive path, it very quickly brought me to a real crisis point and it wasn't clear at the time the reason. Maybe it was divine intervention."
Lucky for her, Moore says she was then given “a chance to redirect the course of my life before I destroyed everything.”
“Life is certainly not a straight line and I think everyone here has dealt with not feeling good enough at some point in their lives," she continued. "I know in a moment of great struggle for me, I've reached out to a wise teacher and expressed my fear that I wasn't good enough and she said, 'You will never be good enough, but you can know the value of your worth. Put down the measuring stick.'"
