Demi Moore Covers Harper’s Bazaar February Cover
AMANDA DE CADENET: You know, not great. From an aesthetic standpoint, I battle with it. It’s an ongoing challenge for me that I don’t think my body looks how I want it to. If I could wave a magic wand, I would be a size 6 and still be able to eat cake every day. How do you feel about your body?
DM: 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.
ADC: I think it’s worth mentioning that you love french fries and I love cake.
DM: Tell me about your spiritual practice, since I know you have one.
ADC: I do have one. I’ve always had an awareness, since I was a little girl, that there is something more than just what we see.
DM: I’m with you. And having no understanding of what that is has always made me a seeker of spirituality.
ADC: Well, my practice has evolved. I don’t marry myself to one belief system. I allow myself to be open to whatever feels right for that time of my life. I do feel that without some kind of conscious contact with the universe, I’m very lost. Spirituality is an anchor for me and guides me through life. If I’m looking at life without a spiritual perspective, it’s a lot more painful, a lot more confusing, and there’s so much that I don’t understand. I have to bring a spiritual element because when I’m not conscious, I’m scared. I’ve done a lot of damage not being conscious.
DM: I think we all have. I think we both share a really unconventional path. That sense of oneness. I have studied Kabbalah for the last eight, nine years, and I feel like a student of Kabbalah, but I feel more so a student and seeker of the truth.
ADC: I think that’s why I never worry about you. I mean, I do worry about you sometimes, but not long term.
