LOS ANGELES • Demi Moore says she was raped at 15.

Appearing on TV show Good Morning America (GMA) on Monday to promote her memoir Inside Out, the 56-year-old actress also revealed that her life unravelled after actor Ashton Kutcher, 41, allegedly cheated on her during their marriage.

She told GMA host Diane Sawyer that the rapist, who knew her mum, said: "How does it feel to be whored by your mother for US$500?"

"I don't think it was a straight-forward transaction. But she still did give him the access and put me in harm's way," Moore said when asked if the man spoke the truth and whether her parent was at fault.

Her mother was an alcoholic and Moore added that she once went to the rescue of her mum after she took pills in a bid to commit suicide.

Her mum, who also took Moore to bars when she was a teenager, died in 1998.

Moore and Kutcher, who met at a dinner with mutual friends, were married from 2005 to 2013.

She told Sawyer that "I lost me" after they separated.

"I think the thing if I were to look back, I would say I blinded myself and I lost myself."

She took drugs and drank to dull the pain, adding that the destructive behaviour appalled her three daughters and Bruce Willis, her spouse from 1987 to 2000.

In 2012, Moore was taken to a hospital after taking drugs at a partyRead More – Source
