“It’s a process of learning to love yourself,” she said on Tuesday on SiriusXM’s “The Jess Cagle Show.” “Accepting who you are just as you are. For me, I had changed myself so many times over and over to fit what I thought somebody else wanted.”
Moore, 57, said it’s easy to forget that people have their own needs and desires to keep them content, something that shouldn’t be discounted.
“It’s that idea that we’re kind of conditioned to work toward being desired, but we’re not supposed to have desires of our own,” she said.
“Working through a relationship, it really is commendable in our disposable times to go through the journey of really honoring the love that brought you together in the first place and to really give it everything you’ve got. But you can’t do that without that love and acceptance of yourself.”
Moore was married to Freddy Moore from 1980 to 1985 before she became part of a pair of extremely high profile unions, including one to Bruce Willis from 1987 to 2000 that yielded three daughters. She also exchanged vows with Ashton Kutcher in 2005 before splitting in 2013.
"Chaotic neutral," she captioned the picture.
"Update: This is where we are at...," she wrote.
