Even as Demi was becoming the highest paid actress in Hollywood, however, she was always outrunning her past, just one step ahead of the doubts and insecurities that defined her childhood. Throughout her rise to fame and during some of the most pivotal moments of her life, Demi battled addiction, body image issues, and childhood trauma that would follow her for years—all while juggling a skyrocketing career and at times negative public perception. As her success grew, Demi found herself questioning if she belonged in Hollywood, if she was a good mother, a good actress—and, always, if she was simply good enough.
As much as her story is about adversity, it is also about tremendous resilience. In this deeply candid and reflective memoir, Demi pulls back the curtain and opens up about her career and personal life—laying bare her tumultuous relationship with her mother, her marriages, her struggles balancing stardom with raising a family, and her journey toward open heartedness. Inside Out is a story of survival, success, and surrender—a wrenchingly honest portrayal of one woman’s at once ordinary and iconic life.
Amanda de Cadenet is an entrepreneur, journalist, author, photographer and activist who advocates for equal rights by ensuring that diverse female identifying creatives are equally employed. She has had a lifelong career in the media, starting at age 15 in the UK, where she became only one of two women who hosted their own TV show. For more than 25 years, Amanda has used her platform in the spotlight to advocate for female representation, an issue that she, herself, still continues to face and overcome.
Amanda’s own experience with gender bias inspired her to executive produce and host The Conversation, a groundbreaking interview series featuring female thought-leaders and innovators, such as Hillary Clinton, Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, Zoe Saldana, Gwyneth Paltrow, Sarah Silverman, Alicia Keys and Lady Gaga.
Amanda’s most recent endeavor is the creation of Girlgaze, a global online community that aims to close the gender gap one job at a time by providing paid jobs for a network of female-identifying and non-binary creatives. Considered “one of the most influential feminists of our time,” Amanda frequently collaborates with the likes of #MeToo and the Times Up organization around initiatives focused on ending sexual violence towards women.
Amanda is the host of Spotify podcast The Conversation with Amanda de Cadenet, and author of It’s Messy: On Boys, Boobs and Bad Ass Women, based on her TV Show.
