    Demi Moore Opened Up About Being "Addicted" To Ashton Kutcher During Their Marriage

    After releasing her tell-all memoir back in September, Moore further opened up about her relationship with Ashton Kutcher in the latest episode of Red Table Talk.

    After candidly opening up about her life in recent memoir Inside Out, Demi Moore just shared further insight into her relationship with Ashton Kutcher, calling it, and the codependency she felt, an "addiction".

    Sitting alongside daughters Rumer and Tallulah Willis on Jada Pinkett’s Red Table Talk, Moore spoke openly about relapsing after years of being sober, revealing she started drinking again after suffering a miscarriage with Kutcher.

    "I ended up pregnant and then I lost the baby at almost six months," Moore said. "So, when I couldn’t get pregnant again, the guilt that I felt, that it was clearly my fault, was just enormous."

    Moore went on to detail how, while on vacation, Kutcher allegedly told her that he didn't know if "[alcoholism] was a thing" and that it was actually about "moderation".

    Moore wrote about the occasion in her memoir, revealing that, while drinking a glass of red wine, Kutcher had apparently said: "I don’t know if alcoholism is a real thing — I think it’s all about moderation."

    When asked what the "mental or emotional pull was" to begin drinking again, Moore put it down to wanting to be "that girl" for Kutcher, something which she's alluded to in previous interviews.

    Moore said: "I wanted to be that girl. I made my own story up, that he wanted somebody who he could have wine with and do stuff."

    This echoed Moore's comments during an interview with Ellen DeGeneres, where she claimed she'd had a threesome with Kutcher during their relationship because it was "in my efforts to want to please and be what I thought he wanted".

    However, Moore said that she doesn't blame Kutcher for her relapse, adding: "He’s not the cause of why I opened that door."

    "I wanted to be something other than who I am," she continued. "And it was literally like giving my power away."

    Calling her dependency on Kutcher an "addiction", Moore concluded that her relationship with him was “probably almost more devastating" than her addiction to alcohol and drugs.

    She said: "The addiction in the codependency — like, my addiction to Ashton — that was probably almost more devastating because it took me seriously away emotionally."

    Kutcher, who has been married to Mila Kunis since 2015, has yet to publicly respond to Moore's claims. However, he appeared to indirectly address the situation in a tweet the day after Moore's memoir was published.

    I was about to push the button on a really snarky tweet. Then I saw my son, daughter, and wife and I deleted it. ❤️

    Days later, Kutcher instead said he'd had a "magical weekend", posting a rare picture with Kunis at Disneyland.
