Report: Demi Moore Felt Pressure to Stay Young and Skinny

Theo Wargo/WireImage(LOS ANGELES) -- There's no shortage of rumors that Demi Moore was leading an unhealthy life before she was hospitalized last week.  The new issue of People magazine adds to the speculation, with sources claiming that the 49-year-old actress partied a lot, barely ate, and habitually chased younger men.

One source says of Moore, who split from Ashton Kutcher in November, "As Demi got older, she convinced herself that she needed to stay young and skinny to remain attractive to her husband."

Another source claims Moore felt younger through her marriage to Kutcher, who's 16 years her junior.  The insider claims Moore, "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."

One young person Moore reportedly has tried to hang around is Zac Efron, who's 24 years old.  A source tells Us Weekly that Moore once "tracked down" Efron at a party in Los Angeles, and, "seemed out of her mind at this party."

A source claims to Us Weekly that Moore had been known to mix, "pills and Red Bulls, among other things." has reported that Moore inhaled a type of nitrous oxide before she was hospitalized.

Moore, who was taken to a hospital after smoking an unknown substance and experiencing seizure-like symptoms, is currently seeking treatment for exhaustion, according to her rep.
