There are many ways to feel OLD, but today’s version comes courtesy of a naked Demi Moore on a magazine cover. It’s been TWENTY-EIGHT years since a pregnant Demi posed in nothing but jewelry for Vanity Fair. And now, 56-year-old Demi is taking it all off for the October issue of Harper’s Bazaar. It’s a good thing the magazine title is splashed so big across the top. Because otherwise, there’s a 70% chance you’d see this picture and think you were looking at the submission package for a MILFy hat “designer” that really wants to join The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Oh, and how perfect would her intro quote be. “I love couture, but my favorite outfit is my birthday suit.”
Demi’s memoir, Inside Out, comes out at the end of this month, and she recently talked about it to Harper’s Bazaar during an interview with her good friend…Lena Dunham? And I thought that pink Pringle chip hat was a random choice.
Inside the magazine, Demi dresses up in various over-the-top rich lady gowns.

“As a woman, a mother, and a wife, there are certain values and vows that I hold sacred, and it is in this spirit that I have chosen to move forward with my life,” says @demimooreofficial in our October 2019 issue. Tap the link in bio to read her candid cover story by @lenadunham.
During the interview, Demi got deep with Lena about her life. She says that her three daughters (31-year-old Rumer, 28-year-old Scout, and 25-year-old Tallulah) gave her an opportunity to “break the cycles” of her own upbringing. She also opened up about marriage to Ashton Kutcher. Demi and Ashton were almost as ubiquitous in the ’00s as Sidekicks and exposed thongs. Demi says that while she was being accused of being an old lady cougar at 42, she suffered a miscarriage six months into a pregnancy. Page Six says Demi writes about it in her memoir, saying that the baby was a girl who she and Ashton planned on naming Chaplin Ray.
She says she blamed herself for the loss, because she had started drinking again. They tried again with fertility treatments, but she claims she was also abusing Vicodin at the time, and it didn’t happen. It’s been well-documented that Demi went through it toward the end of her relationship with Ashton.
Demi tells Lena she got sober in her 20s, then dropped her sobriety in her 40s, and regained control again in her 50s. She’s sober now.
During her interview for Harper’s Bazaar, Demi showed up at Lena’s rented house in Wales with a bag full of dolls.
Demi loves dolls—dolls and toys. She collects them by the roomful, a hobby she describes as becoming an obsession in the wake of her divorce from [Bruce] Willis. “I love figurative art,” she says. “And when I look at the little faces of things that I have, whether they’re like little animals or little something or others. I’ve always got little faces looking at me. If you go up and look at my carry-on bag, I have a little bear, and I have a little Dil Pickles, you know, from Rugrats?” She takes me upstairs and unveils him in her suitcase, cleaning his knobbly little head before holding him up for me to examine. “I usually have a monkey in my purse too. It started with one I call purse monkey.”
Who would have guessed back in the 1980s that future Demi Moore would turn out to be the Brat Pack’s Marie Osmond? Although I’m sure that’s not what Ashton Kutcher is focusing on. He probably started sweating when he heard Demi is so into dolls. And now he can’t stop wondering if collection happens to contain a brown-haired doll in a douchey trucker hat with little voodoo pins stuck in him.
