Hollywood actress Demi Moore claimed that she was raped at the age of 15 by a man who paid her alcoholic mother $ 500 USD.
The 56-year-old spoke about the incident with Good Morning America’s Diane Sawyer while discussing her diary Inside Out.
Moore revealed that when she was a teenager her mother would take her to bars for men to notice her.
One night, she comes home to find an older man she knows in their apartment holding the key.
She wrote in the book, “It was rape and devastating betrayal revealed by the cruel man’s question,” How do you feel when your mother cries for $ 500? “
But she told Sawyer that she couldn’t believe her mother had intentionally sold her.
She said, “I think deep in my heart, no.”
“I don’t think it was a direct deal, but it still gave him access and did me harm.”
After the accident, Moore revealed that she left her mother’s house when she was a bankrupt teen heading to Hollywood.
Although she had no acting experience, she had confidence stemming from the notion that she had nothing to lose.
She finally got her big break when she was 19, as she starred as Jackie Templeton in General Hospital.
But it escalated – switched to alcohol, then drugs.
It was during the filming of the 1985 movie Saint Elmo’s Fire, in which Moore played party girl Jules, who was asked to go to a rehab.
“It’s a profound gift that they gave me,” said Sawyer.
She woke up and stayed that way for 20 years, until she turned her 40s.
Moore went on to star in Ghost, along with Patrick Swayze, and earned a nomination for a Golden Globe.
She also starred in A Few Good Mne, Indecent Proposal, and GI Jane and became the highest paid actress in 1996.
