Yesteryears U.S. actress has shared about her best-kept secret that she fought alcoholism for years. In an exclusive TV interview, the actress confessed that she fought and hid about her drinking problems for years. She says, "An alcoholic woman, in most people’s eyes, was one who had just really gotten sloppy, gotten dirty." Moore comments that her example may help other alcoholics seek aid, "Being able to come out and talk honestly about that (alcoholism) gave a lot of people the opportunity to look at themselves carefully and say, ‘Hey, yes I look good, my clothes are nice and I’m warm and delightful, but I’m also an alcoholic.’"
