    Demi Moore Reveals She Was Raped at 15

    In her new memoir, Inside Out, the 56-year-old actress details a traumatic childhood. Moore writes that she was assaulted as a teen by a man who knew her mother, and as the violence took place he asked her, “How does it feel to be whored by your mother for $500?”

    What else does the book detail? The hard-hitting testimony talks of alcoholic parents, foiling her mother’s suicide attempt at age 12, dropping out of high school and getting her start on soap opera General Hospital at 19.
