Comedian denies Demi Moore took his virginity
Jon Cryer doesn't want Demi Moore to feel bad about taking his virginity - because she didn't.
In her new memoir, Inside Out, Moore writes that she felt bad taking his virginity while filming their 1984 movie, No Small Affair.
"It pains me to think of how callous I was with his feelings - that I stole what could have been such an important and beautiful moment from him," she writes.
However, it turns out Moore, 56, was not his first.
"Well, the good thing about this is she doesn't have to feel bad about it anymore because while I'm sure she was totally justified making that assumption based on my skill level (and the stunned look on my face at the time), I had actually lost my virginity in high school," Cryer, 54, tweeted in response this morning.
He added, "But she's right the other part, I was over the moon for her during a very troubled time in her life. I have nothing but affection for her and not a regret in the world."
Moore, who was around 21 years old at the time, revealed she was dependent on cocaine during that time in her life and did some "self-destructive things during that period".
In her book, Inside Out (which is available now), Moore also reveals that she was on a romantic vacation with ex-husband Ashton Kutcher when she broke her sobriety of nearly 20 years.
"Ashton was enjoying a glass of good red wine when he said, 'I don't know if alcoholism is a real thing - I think it's all about moderation,'" she writes.
"I wanted to be that girl. The girl who could have a glass of wine at dinner, or do a tequila shot at a party. In my mind, Ashton wanted that, too. So I tried to become that: a fun, normal girl."
Moore continued, "I didn't think, 'This is a kid in his twenties who has no idea what he's talking about.' I think, 'I have nearly two decades of sobriety under my belt, and that's a huge accomplishment.' Instead, I cast about for justifications."
That night, she had a beer from the hotel minibar.
Moore detailed her spiral back into addiction, blaming herself for losing a pregnancy because of her drinking and the collapse of her relationship with Kutcher, with whom she was married from 2005 to 2013.
She describes another vacation for her birthday, which ended up with her passing out in a hot tub and being carried to bed by Ashton, who was "furious" with her. And while she understood his anger, Moore was also confused by it.
"Ashton had encouraged me to go in this direction. When I went too far, though, he let me know how he felt by showing a picture he'd taken of me resting my head on the toilet the night before," she recalled. "It seemed like a good-natured joke at the time. But it was really just shaming."
By 2011, Moore was estranged from two of her three daughters - Scout and Tallulah - and from ex-husband Bruce Willis.
"I think the part that was real was that the girls were angry I'd become so dependent on Ashton - I was addicted to him, is the best way I can put it," she writes, adding that she prioritised him over her kids.
Moore and Kutcher announced their split in November 2011 and she has since reconciled with her daughters and Willis.
"I'm grateful to Ashton, too, believe it or not," she wrote. "Whatever pain we went through together enabled both of us to grow into the people we are today."
Reps for Kutcher didn't immediately return our request for comment.
