Demi Moore pops back onto the radar in Los Angeles

Demi Moore has been spotted in L.A.

Demi Moore has been spotted on the tarmac in L.A. after being whisked away to points unknown -- officially, that is -- after her January hospitalization.

A series of long-lens photos obtained by TMZ shows the actress, clad in a white sweater and jeans shorts, disembarking from a private jet on Sunday night and being welcomed with a big hug from an unidentified woman.

Moore was spotted last week on the beach outside a private villa near Parrot Cay in the Turks and Caicos islands, the same destination where she was reportedly partying like mad over the Christmas holidays.

Moore was hospitalized Jan. 23 after smoking something that was "not marijuana, but ... similar to incense" and suffering "convulsions," according to a 911 call made that night. Rumors also circulated that the "Margin Call" actress, who wound up withdrawing recently from the film "Lovelace," may have been doing "whip-its," or nitrous oxide inhalants.

Once released from the hospital, she was reportedly undergoing rehab at the Cirque Lodge in Sundance, Utah, though official word from her rep said only, "Because of the stresses in her life right now, Demi has chosen to seek professional assistance to treat her exhaustion and improve her overall health."

Moore announced in November that she'd be filing for divorce from husband Ashton Kutcher, following alleged infidelity.

Demi Moore reportedly in rehab at luxe Cirque Lodge in Sundance

This post has been updated, as indicated below.

Demi Moore reportedly has been getting help for addiction and an eating disorder at a luxe Utah rehab since shortly after her hospitalization last month.

After being hospitalized Jan. 23, she grabbed some things and headed to get help at the Cirque Lodge in Sundance, Utah, a rehab source told E! Online.

"She's on total lockdown and only talking to a small group of people," the source said. Other celebs treated at Cirque include Lindsay Lohan, Kirsten Dunst and, possibly concurrent with Demi, Brooke Mueller. [Updated, 6:45 p.m. Jan. 6: Or not.]

The timing of her check-in is in conflict with earlier reports that she'd been visited at home last week by ex-husband Bruce Willis and estranged husband Ashton Kutcher, the latter of whom had been in Brazil when the 49-year-old actress "smoked something" and went into "convulsions," as described on a 911 call made on her behalf.

Those reports, however, said only that separate cars carrying the men had gone to Moore's home last Wednesday. Perhaps they visited the house, and not Demi?

Demi Moore plot thickens: Pursuing Zac Efron, fountain of youth?

Demi Moore's plot thickens with tales of desperation
Demi Moore isn't having the best week, as far as newsstands are concerned. The actress has reportedly been battling massive insecurity with age and weight, as well as chasing young things like Zac Efron.

After her January hospitalization, allegedly thanks to a bad reaction to nitrous oxide and a smoke inhalant, reports are charging the "Margin Call" star with massive insecurities surrounding the breakdown of her marriage — all leading to this current crisis.

"She's been really down, and she's surrounding herself with young people to make her feel better," Us magazine cites one source as saying.

And by "surrounding" the report suggests Moore "tracked down" 24-year-old actor Zac Efron for companionship. This proposed hunt led to a party in L.A.'s Venice Beach neighborhood, prior to Moore's medical treatment. 

"As Demi got older, she convinced herself that she needed to stay young and skinny to remain attractive to her husband," People magazine added to the party, via their own inside source.

"[She] was always fixated on being young. And the only thing that tied her to that, as she got older, was her marriage to a younger guy and hanging around young people."

Following the hospital visit, Moore's rep said she would seek "professional assistance to treat her exhaustion and improve her overall health." On the work front, Moore was replaced by Sarah Jessica Parker in the adult film biopic "Lovelace."

Rumer Willis reportedly witnessed Demi Moore's seizure

Rumer Willis

Rumer Willis' nickname, "Rue," can be heard on the 911 call that was made when mom Demi Moore was suffering a seizure after "smoking something" -- and on Tuesday a source was confirming that Rumer was indeed present during the emergency.

With "a few people" still around from a birthday party Demi had been hosting, Rumer and a couple of friends were in another part of the house when the seizure occurred, a source told E! News.

According to the 911 call, which had specifics about substances edited out, Moore had "smoked something" that was "not marijuana, it's like incense." (Hear the full 911 call, placed on Jan. 23, below.)

Speculation about what she might have smoked has included mention of "spice" or "K2" and other herbal incense products, which are often laced with designer drugs and can "quite often" result in seizure activity, according to a doctor who spoke with ABC News. Salvia, which has hallucinogenic effects, is also sometimes marketed as herbal incense.

While Moore's whereabouts remain uncertain, Willis on Sunday night hit the official gala after the Screen Actors Guild Awards with Annie Starke, Glenn Close's daughter.

Keeping it low-key, Rumer greeted same-aged thesps, including cast members from "Glee," staying tight with her friend and stargazing.

Sarah Jessica Parker replaces Demi Moore in 'Lovelace'

Sarah Jessica Parker has replaced Demi Moore in 'Lovelace'
Sarah Jessica Parker will be fitted for the glasses of prominent feminist Gloria Steinem in "Lovelace," replacing actress Demi Moore.
Covering the life of adult film pioneer Linda Lovelace and her rise to stardom, Parker climbs aboard after Moore dropped out of the production due to a personal crisis.
Hospitalized on Monday evening, initial reports alleged Moore was treated for substance abuse, a 911 call later revealing that Moore had a bad reaction to smoking something — on top of reportedly taking "whip-its," recreational inhaling of nitrous oxide. 

As Demi's real-life saga continues, "Lovelace" is presumably looking to focus on the scripted drama. Amanda Seyfriend plays the title character, with Peter Sarsgaard as her husband. 

Chloë Sevigny, Debi Mazar, Adam Brody, Sharon Stone and Juno Temple round out the cast — but more important, Chris Noth will also appear. Carrie and Mr. Big reunion! '70s porn style! 
Women's liberation leader Steinem is traveling, and was not reachable for comment.

Demi Moore 911 call: Confusion, convulsions

Demi Moore

The Demi Moore 911 call was released Friday morning, full of editing "bleeps” but also providing a look into the seriousness of the incident that led to the actress’ hospitalization Monday night.

After initial confusion about whether it was Beverly Hills’ or Los Angeles’ duty to respond to that address, plus some chaotic behavior on the callers’ end, the dispatcher began to gather information about the situation.

“She smoked something –- it’s not marijuana, but it’s similar to, it’s similar to incense -– and she appears to be having convulsions of some sort,” a female voice says on the 911 tape

The herb salvia, which produces psychedelic effects and hit mainstream headlines after being bong-smoked by Miley Cyrus, can be sold in incense form. Though any specifics are unconfirmed, Moore reportedly was later treated at the hospital for use of nitrous oxide inhalants, or “whip-its.”

Moore was described by a woman on the call as “semiconscious, barely” and “convulsing,” and then “burning up.” A few minutes later, before paramedics arrived, Moore had stopped convulsing, was breathing normally and had calmed down quite a bit, a male on the scene told the dispatcher.

Specifics about substances involved and other medical details were edited out of the tape on advice from the city attorney’s office, L.A. Now reported.

When the dispatcher asked what substances might have been taken, a woman explained, “She's been having some other issues lately with some other stuff, so I don’t know what she's been taking and not telling us,” adding later, "There's been some stuff recently that we're all just finding out."

Moore recently decided to file for divorce from Ashton Kutcher, her husband of six years, after alleged infidelity on his part. Her dramatic thinness has been the subject of recent speculation, as have unconfirmed reports that the “Margin Call” actress was abusing prescription medication.

On Tuesday, Moore’s rep said in a statement, "Because of the stresses in her life right now, Demi has chosen to seek professional assistance to treat her exhaustion and improve her overall health."

Demi Moore: 911 call may come out missing the 'good parts'

Demi Moore

Demi Moore's medical secrets are unlikely to be revealed if and when a tape of 911 call related to her recent hospitalization is released: The Los Angeles Fire Department has been advised to bleep out certain portions of the call to comply with federal medical privacy laws.

Alas, those portions would be what we at the Ministry might refer to as "the good parts," or the ones containing personal information about her medical condition -- including what, if any, substances the 49-year-old Moore might have been partaking of before the need to dial 911 arose.

"We've reviewed the 911 tape and we have made recommendations," Frank Mateljan, spokesman for the city attorney, told L.A. Now. It's not special treatment either, he said. "Generally speaking, it's our recommendation to withhold release of any medical condition or ingested substance related to an incident."

That whole scenario may qualify as an actual, by-definition buzz kill.

And because of Moore's decision this week to seek "professional assistance" for her "general health," and the rumors surrounding that decision, the buzz that's being buzzed about is nitrous oxide. The inhalant, known by the street names "whip-its" (think of the propellant used in canned whipped cream), poppers or snappers, is one that can really mess with your head.

"Sniffing high concentrations of inhalants may result in death from heart failure or suffocation" as the inhalants displace oxygen in the lungs, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse. And that's only one of the scary side effects of the substance, which is known more as a cheap and easily accessible high for the younger crowd, rather than a high of choice for the trying-to-stay-eternally-young set.

Moore, of course, was out on the town Monday night with Rumer Willis, her 23-year-old daughter.

Demi Moore seeks treatment for 'exhaustion,' 'overall health'

Demi Moore

Demi Moore is seeking professional help — the actress, whose split from husband Ashton Kutcher has fueled more than a few headlines in recent months, is getting treatment after reportedly visiting a local hospital Monday night.

"Because of the stresses in her life right now, Demi has chosen to seek professional assistance to treat her exhaustion and improve her overall health," her rep confirmed Tuesday. "She looks forward to getting well and is grateful for the support of her family and friends."

A 911 call reportedly made late Monday night resulted in Moore being taken by paramedics to a local hospital, according to TMZ, which cited law-enforcement sources who alleged the treatment was for substance abuse. Substance abuse was not confirmed Tuesday.

Despite the recent drama in Moore's personal life, appearance and attitude at CAA's pre-Golden Globes bash Jan. 13 gave little or no clue that something might be awry. Moore and Madonna sat out on the rear patio with some agent types, staying cool even when a newly beard-free Ashton Kutcher breezed in.

Madonna, Demi Moore light up CAA Golden Globes bash

MadonnaCAA
Talent agency CAA populates most of film and television with its star clients above and below the line, and managed to coax seemingly all of them to the Soho House in West Hollywood on Friday.

As part of the agency's annual pre-Golden Globes celebration, the whole of the exclusive club was occupied by nominees and their famous cheerleaders. Where to begin? Madonna, Tom Cruise, Cameron Diaz, Reese Witherspoon, Diddy, Michael Fassbender, Leonardo DiCaprio, Bradley Cooper, Jamie Foxx. 

And that's to name a few. Some of our favorite scenes from the CAA bash were ...

Girl talk: Madonna sat on the rear patio in a form-fitting red dress and motorcycle gloves with Demi Moore and some agent types, and kept cool as a cucumber when Moore's ex Ashton Kutcher breezed in with his newly shaved face. 

Boys club: DiCaprio is still in "Gatsby" mode -- the actor held court F. Scott Fitzgerald style on a side patio with Orlando Bloom for hours, laughing and sharing an electronic cigarette. Bloom's gal Miranda Kerr kept up with them no problem, sipping Grey Goose cocktails and laughing with the boys.

Everyone loves Cameron: Honestly, Diaz was Miss Congeniality. Entering the fete with her "Knight and Day" costar Tom Cruise, Diaz was received with hugs, kisses and squeals by everyone from Witherspoon and Chelsea Handler to Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Jason Statham. Diddy stuck close to Cammy all evening.

Babysitters Club: Hollywood parents used CAA as the perfect excuse to hit the town, like Witherspoon and her agent husband Jim Toth, Robert Downey Jr. (no sight of pregnant wife Susan) and Robert DeNiro -- who welcomed a baby with Grace Hightower in December.

Also spotted: Axl Rose, Sean Penn, Ryan Kwanten, Alexander Skarsgard, Gerard Butler, Julianne Moore, Jason Bateman, Nick Nolte and couple Salma Hayek and Francois Pinault.

Demi Moore in no rush to trade @mrskutcher? We can play that game

Demi Moore will stay @mrskutcher for now.

Demi Moore is just fine being @mrskutcher for now, people, and she doesn't particularly care if you have a problem with that.

Moore and estranged husband Ashton Kutcher have been a force on Twitter for years under the handles @aplusk (him) and @mrskutcher (duh), counting almost 8.8 million and 4.4 million followers, respectively. So naturally, the news of their pending divorce had at least a couple of folks pondering the fate of her very relationship-specific screen name.

The answer? Ms. Moore is not sweating it right now. "changing my twitter name isn't a top priority right now," Demi tweeted Wednesday. "sorry it bothers so many of u. should I not tweet until I do? does it really matter?"

Sorry? Really? Mmm-kay. We believe you.

So we will forget letting it bother us and instead will allow the conundrum to entertain us. Should Demi Moore morph to @exmrskutcher? @apluskminusdm? Just @demi (OK, that one's taken)?

Share your probably-way-better, keep-'em-clean ideas in comments -- we'll elevate top choices into the post after a while, for the enjoyment of all.
