Actress Demi Moore who was rushed to hospital earlier this week is reportedly being treated for problems relating to anorexia.

According to several newspaper reports, a friend of the 49-year-old actress had to call 911 after Moore began shaking and appeared to suffering a seizure.

Recent photographs highlight Moore’s plummeting weight loss since the collapse of her marriage to Ashton Kutcher last year. The split came after claims of infidelity by Kutcher.

Moore’s spokeswoman confirmed she was seeking help to treat "exhaustion" and get her health back on track. She said: "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."

But a source told a US website: "She collapsed after having an epileptic seizure. Demi is getting treated for anorexia and other issues. She has not taken care of her health lately and has lost a ton of weight."

She has already pulled out of her next movie role.
