In the first part of the sit-down, which aired on Good Morning America, Moore talks about a variety of topics. Her memoir “Inside Out” is set to be released September 24.
Sawyer asked Moore about growing up with an alcoholic mother. The actress talked about having to take care of her mom. She says her mother took her underage to bars, in an attempt to get guys to notice her.
Moore talks about the childhood rape when she was 15. The actress revealed the assault took place when she came home.
She says an older man her mother knew was inside the apartment. He then raped her and during asked her, “How does it feel to be whored by your mother for $500?”
Moore tells Sawyer she does not believe it was a straight transaction.
She said her rough childhood transitioned into Hollywood, because of her “I have nothing to lose” attitude. Moore shares she had issues with alcohol and cocaine. Sawyer and Moore then watch her old films in her movie room.
She talks about the criticism she received for commanding $12.5 million for “Striptease.” She said, “Why shouldn’t I. Why shouldn’t all women be paid equal to the quality of the work their doing.”
The second part of the interview airs tomorrow.
The excerpts released from the book have revealed Moore suffered a miscarriage while dating Ashton Kutcher. She also talked about wild bedroom romps with Kutcher and confronting him over two cheating scandals.
Kutcher has remained silent on the memoir but his current-wife Mila Kunis was recently publicly spotted.
