Demi Moore fears not being wanted

Demi Moore has revealed that her biggest fear is finding out she's not "worthy of being loved".

Speaking shortly after she filed for divorce from Ashton Kutcher, the actress told Harper's Bazaar that she felt like a "warrior".

But she said: "I would say what scares me is that I'm going to ultimately find out at the end of my life that I'm really not lovable, that I'm not worthy of being loved. That there's something fundamentally wrong with me... and that I wasn't wanted here in the first place."

While not addressing her split with Two And A Half Men star Ashton, 33, directly, Demi, 49, opened up about her feelings.

She told British photographer Amanda de Cadenet in the interview: "Somebody wrote something to me that said, 'Don't let your wounds make you become someone you're not.' That's really powerful. And not taking life too seriously."

The actress, who has been criticised for her thin appearance, admitted she "had a love-hate relationship with my body".

She said: "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 ... or that I couldn't get my body to do what I wanted it to do.

"I think I sit today in a place of greater acceptance of my body, and that includes not just my weight but all of the things that come with your changing body as you age to now experiencing my body as extremely thin - thin in a way that I never imagined somebody would be saying to me, 'You're too thin, and you don't look good'.

"I find peace when I don't see my body as my enemy."
