“I feel like I’ve been in an incubating period where I haven’t necessarily known what direction I was going to go in or what I was supposed to be doing.” She confessed. “It can feel like you’re floating in the abyss.”

Her attitude has definitely changed since she started acting, especially how she perceives herself. “How I’d describe myself in three words: In 1994 — Chubby, Chubby, Chubby (But in all fairness, I had just had a baby.) Today — Quirky, Eccentric, Happy.”

Adding, “Now, with the book, I realize I am ambitious for a combination of things that aren’t external — self-love, self-acceptance, and self-forgiveness, and for real connection. I feel like I’m a caterpillar coming out of the cocoon. I’m going to be a butterfly.”

The Striptease actress’ memoir Inside Out goes on sale September 24. She called it a very intimate, challenging project. “The most important part was when I had to go back through all my things, and I started to gain an incredible depth of appreciation," Demi explained. "Everything I had perceived as negative or bad, I now appreciate.”

She continued, “I was recently going through thousands of photos, and, I mean, looking at the life I've lived, the things we've done, it's incredible and I'm so appreciative.” For the G.I. Jane actress, looking back was the best way to move forward.
