For years, Demi Moore's life was scrutinized by paparazzi and splashed across the pages of glossy magazines: there was the end of her marriage to Bruce Willis, the age gap between her and her third husband, Ashton Kutcher, and later, a series of stories about loneliness and ill health.

These days, she's writing her own story. In her new memoir, Inside Out, Moore explains why she — one of Hollywood's most successful actors — faced insecurity and inner turmoil for much of her life. 

She joined q's Tom Power from Los Angeles to talk about the events that shaped her and what it's like to watch your life unfold across tabloid magazines. In their conversation, she started at the beginning, opening up about how her parents would often uproot their small family as they criss-crossed the country, repeatedly starting from scratch in a brand new city.

Moore's new memoir is called Inside Out and it's out now.
