Demi Moore seeks treatment, drops out of 'Lovelace'

Demi Moore was slated to portray Gloria Steinem in the Linda Lovelace biopic, "Lovelace," but it seems that's no longer a go. A rep for the 49-year-old actress tells CNN that she is not working on the film.

Moore's rep adds that the actress, who recently separated from her husband of six years, Ashton Kutcher, has been dealing with stress.

As a result, "Demi has chosen to seek professional assistance to treat her exhaustion and improve her overall health. She looks forward to getting well and is grateful for the support of her family and friends."

On Tuesday, reports circulated that Moore had been rushed to the hospital on Monday night, with TMZ citing anonymous sources who allege the issue was substance abuse. Moore's rep did not have a comment on those allegations.

A spokesman for the Los Angeles Fire Department confirmed to CNN that the department did respond to a 911 call from Oak Pass Road, a street on which the actress lives, at 10:49 p.m. for an unknown illness.

However, the spokesman added that he was not allowed to identify the patient, whom he says was transported at 11:21 p.m. to a local hospital.

    i don't waste too much time in the cheating department-my husband knows you stray your out.
    Demi is 49 years old..she needs to get her strength emotionally back. she use to speak with such confidence years ago, she has to get that back. she doesn't need Kutcher. most women who have men who cheat lose themselves and trick their brains into thinking its not happening. Demi? Get well and get back on the big screen and most of all forget this twirp

    I hope for the best for Demi, she is the one that I have watched for years, not Kutcher, she is the actress that is touched with class and hope her strength in her life carry,s her to any level that she can achieve, I enjoy any movie that she comes out with, have so since she was a youngster, all she needs is for her to stand with her children and to have all of them to be with each others presence, she should be fine, we all have our bad sides in life, its part of life, we all got barriers that we have to stand up to or hurdles if you may, you got to have humor unside to accomplish this, she has to learn to laugh again within, and she will do fine

You are only feeding his ego and embarrassing yourself. I don't get your suffering AT ALL – and to think what notoriety and success you are throwing away by giving up the Gloria Steinam role – that could have been your best yet. What a shame.

    Most of this stuff is just a publicity stunt. She hasn't been in the news until just recently, and so she has to have the publicity to show that she's still around. Most Hollywood marriages are a publicity stunt anyway. They don't get married to stay together forever, it's just to draw attention to themselves.

    I admire her, but I also agree with whoever said it is difficult to believe "poor little rich girl" understands real stress of trying to pay bills, get to work on time without the car breaking down, keeping the kids in school, get dinner on the table every evening, pay doctor bills for which one has no insurance. These troubles make up "real" life in middle-America today. And every day, you go to bed knowing you face the same problems the next day.

      She just dumped her boy toy. She's depressed and using to cope, and her SIZE made her more suseptible

    You guys who are insensitive to Ms. Moore ought to be ashamed. I doubt that feeling sorry for herself is the issue here.
    Rather, breakups are hard on the body and mind as one gets older. The pain is REAL. Especially, if you really and absolutely love someone. If you've never loved with your soul, you will never empathize or relate.
    It's easy to be crass but compassion is what we all deserve. Ms. Moore has wisely decided to focus less on her projects and more on her recovery.
    God bless Ms. Moore and may you feel good about yourself again soon.

    You don't call 911 in the middle of the night to get paramedics for exhaustion! That's BS. Sure she might have exhaustion and stress but something else had to have happened. Her PR tried to cover it up with a grain of truth, but the rest will come out. And no sympathy from me either. I sat in front of her on a flight from JFK to LAX in the late 80s and started talking with her midway through the flight. To me she seemed nice but a bit nutty, but that's Hollywood.

      That was fast. As I predicted, her PR person lied claiming it was "exhaustion" (all of the sheep that believe you should call 911 for exhaustion are clueless); it seems she inhaled a dangerous amount of nitrous oxide (whip-it which is a street name for a type of nitrous oxide inhalant kids use for a cheap high.)

      Yeah my colleague's husband of 10 years asked her for a divorce last month and didn't want anything to do with their two little children. Despite that she had to come in to work at 9am, be efficient and stay till 6 or 7pm depending on the project, then on her way back home pick up her children from day care , cook for them, clean them, put them into bed and then get into bed to be up by 5am to be in the office by 9am all the time while dealing with her divorce mess. Seriously, Miss Moore is nothing but a selfish, self centered idiot who doesn't know reality and heart break. What did she think? she is a 49 year old grandma. If she wasn't so insecure she would be with a decent man her age and would probably have been happier!

    I think the point some people are trying to make is that half of all married couples go through divorce. Of course it is difficult and stressful for anyone, including celebrities. Unfortunately for us in the real world, we can't quit our jobs and seek treatment for months on end because we can't afford it and don't have that luxury. While I feel bad for anyone in this position, you should go to work, focus on your career and your children, and eventually your divorce will be over. That's what the rest of working class couples have to do.

      I'm pretty sure divorce/betrayal can be equally stressful. How do you know she wouldn't give up her money for a wholesome marriage? Sorry that you feel your paycheck-to-paycheck live is so stressful, but you have no right to decide that your stress is grander than someone else's problems. Any psychologist will tell you that divorce is one of the most stressful things a human being will experience, right up there with death, or losing a job. The reason is that all of these are huge emotional losses/changes in our lives. Get a grip– you aren't the only one to suffer.

      You've got to be very young, as it seems you don't have an understanding about how it feels to be the one who is cheated on. Forgiving is one thing, but trusting again is another. There are some people who decide to work hard to get that trust back. Some stay, never feel that trust again, and are miserable. Others can't shake the whole thing and have to move on. I'm sure if you were the one who faced such heartache, you'd have a very different perspective. People react in different ways and heal in different ways. It seems quite judgmental of you to think that just the idea that you imagine is correct for another person.

      Mitzi I can answer this bcuseae my family lives down there! You are outside of my color planting schedule by about a month. The trick is, Las Vegas gets so hot in the summer, but you can grow almost all winter long. My book is really for a spring-summer-fall planting schedule. The dates I offer might work for you and others who live in warmer climates, but really have a spring-summer and a fall-winter season. I am very aware of your needs, and it’s on my list of things to research and write about. But honestly, I can’t speak from experience, only from my research. I encourage you to contact your local extension service (www.extension.org) for a recommended planting schedule.

      I don't feel sorry for her at all. She picked him. That kind of an age difference never works out when it's the woman that's older. Women don't age as gracefully and have a short shelf-life compared to men. Men can make babies until the day they die and being with a younger woman enforces this. Women with younger men look desperate to hold onto their youth and impress others. Men with younger women can pull it off if they have money, as they are "taking care" of their companion.

      Everyone has bills, but some spend beyond their means. You do not pay for any celebrity's income, unless you choose to see their movies, buy movies, etc.

      This comment is nothing but a lame stereotype shrouded in a very thin veil of jealousy. There are many different causes for stress and stress-related symptoms.

      What really amazes me is how these celebrities who require serious rehab, only go in for 2 weeks to 2 months max. A true addicted person needs MUCH more time than this to beat their demons.

      Celebrities and their connections think they are holy than thou and can rehab within weeks.

      Sorry to burst the bubble of any celebrity here because, in the reality of things, rehab time takes a longer approach than what most of you get. You'll all be back into drugs/alcohol in not time flat with the serious lack of rehabilitation you really need in order for it to be fully effective and keep you on the wagon.

      These short stints in rehab are a serious joke. No addictive person will stay sober from 1 to 3 months of rehab.

    Man. I hope she will be ok. Maybe she should go on a good vacation or something. She should just ignore ashton the idiot.

    The cure Ms. Moore seeks is to eat a cheeseburger once in a while.

      Yep. It's great that tries to take care of herself and all. But all things in moderation. Including, moderation.

      Yeah, I thought this was a trailer for the new Ghost Rider movie.....she must be on the Maria Shriver diet plan.

      Cheeseburgers will contribute to an early death, make her fat, clog her brain with fat, and make her smell bad. Probably the unhealthiest food a human can eat.

      I just don't understand eating disorders ... food is so TASTY!!

      Not to be insensitive ... I do feel for those who suffer from this unfortunate condition. I hope she feels happy again soon.

      YourMom – She also suffers from anorexia...a burger would do HER good, even if its not the best food for you. And I'm sure she gets the LEANEST meats from only the best sources.

      Exhaustion? Isn't that Hollyweird code word for "drugs and alcohol"? Get over yourself, old lady. We're all exhausted.

      I agree! We will probably find out that she has Anorexia. She is nothing but skin and bones.

      I think she did eat meat. I mean she was married to Ashton for all those years. Who wouldn't eat that?

      Frankly, she didn't ask for the info about her being rushed to the hospital to be for public consumption, she didn't ask for our opinions, and she doesn't need our smarta$$ remarks. She's a human being dealing with issues we know nothing about.....at the very least have some compassion!! I wish her the best and hope she finds the help she needs, not because she's rich, famous, or any other reason except she's a woman in pain and I prefer to send her a kind word of encouragement whether she ever sees it or not.

      Obviously many of you have never known anyone who has suffered an eating disorder. This is not a "eat a cheeseburger" solution type problem. If that was the answer, we'd all be doing it to recover. It's an illness, a disease, please get some sort of mental illness education before you say insensitive and awful things.

      Cheeseburger line is so cliched, almost always posted by catty women trying to pick apart another woman. Take care of your own before judging others?

      lol @ you losers insulting her for being thin. Heaven forbid she actually takes care of her physique her whole life, rather than blowing up to 200lbs like most middle aged women do. Envy much?
