During an appearance on SiriusXM’s the Jess Cagle Show, the 57-year-old actress opened up about how that helped her heal from her divorces.
“I think it’s a process of, you know, not to sound cliché, but it’s really a process of learning to love yourself,” Moore shared. “Accepting who you are just as you are. For me, I had changed myself so many times over and over to fit what I thought somebody else wanted. It’s that idea that we’re kind of conditioned to work towards being desired, but we’re not supposed to have desires of our own.”

“Working through a relationship, it’s really commendable in our disposable times,” she added to Cagle. “You know, to go through the journey of really honoring the love that brought you together in the first place and to really give it everything you’ve got. But you can’t do that really without the love and acceptance of yourself.”
“I will forever be so grateful to him. In a way he was doing it for himself, he wasn’t yet sober. It was like he was doing for me what he couldn’t yet do for himself,” she said of Schumacher, who died in June of cancer. “Work was the only thing that meant anything to me. I didn’t have any value, I wasn’t enough to have kept myself sober, but doing the film was.”
