Demi Moore has once again captured imaginations across the world after making a surprise appearance on the Fendi runway during Paris Fashion Week. And it seems that she’s also close to her model friends, as Demi opened up to Naomi Campbell for her No Filter With Naomi YouTube series. In a heartfelt video that premiered yesterday, the actor spoke about her experience quarantining with her ex-husband Bruce Willis and his family.

Demi and Bruce married in 1987 and went on to have three daughters, Rumer, Scout and Tallulah, before divorcing in 2000. Despite their split, however, it seems that Demi and Bruce have maintained a good friendship over the years. 

She is understood to have spent part of her quarantine with Bruce and their daughters and they were later joined by his two younger daughters and wife Emma.

Demi Moore revealed on No Filter With Naomi, “There’s been a lot of challenges and a lot of tragedy with this pandemic, but I also think there’s been a lot of gifts and blessings".

More from woman&home:

“I personally feel like I was really grateful for things slowing down and the time that we had. It worked out that Bruce came and spent time with us and then his current wife and their small daughters joined a little bit later when the kids were finished with school.

”It was really a blessing,” Demi said of their family quarantine experience. “I think that it’s also brought forward an incredible opportunity for going inward and raising our own consciousness, I think as individuals, but also, I feel, globally.”

“Everything that's come forward has allowed us to reevaluate what's important and what needs attention that has been overlooked and neglected. It was amazing,” she added.

It seems that it’s also very important for Demi that both her daughters and herself get to spend time with Bruce’s younger daughters, Mabel and Evelyn, from his marriage to his current wife Emma. Discussing her three daughters’ relationship with Bruce and Emma’s children, she shared, “My daughters love their little sisters.

“And for me our family, regardless of what the shape of it is, it’s important to keep together and for the little ones to feel comfortable with me and to know me so they also know their sisters better.

”It was really sweet and we did have some silly times for sure.”
