Demi Moore is seeking professional help to deal with exhaustion and health issues after she was rushed to hospital on Monday night.

Paramedics were called to the Hollywood star's Los Angeles home and she was taken to a nearby medical facility for an "unknown illness" after she was assessed for 30 minutes.

Her representative has revealed she is now seeking treatment to help her recover from exhaustion and other health issues.

In a statement, the actress's rep 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. She looks forward to getting well and is grateful for the support of her family and friends."

A spokesperson for the Los Angeles Fire Department added: "I can confirm that we received an emergency call at 10:49pm for an unknown illness related to that address. We transported at least one patient to a local hospital. The patient was transported at 11:21pm."

The actress has also reportedly pulled out of her upcoming role in a biopic of notorious porn star Linda Lovelace, in which she was set to play feminist Gloria Steinem.

Demi's hospital dash comes after rising concerns about her appearance and plummeting weight in the aftermath of her split from husband Ashton Kutcher. The couple announced their separation in November following weeks of reports that suggested the actor had been unfaithful.

The Ghost actress addressed her weight in a interview with Harper's Bazaar magazine, admitting close pals had warned her she is too thin.

She revealed: "I think I sit today in a place of greater acceptance of my body, and that includes not just my weight but all of the things that come with your changing body as you age to now experiencing my body as extremely thin - thin in a way that I never imagined somebody would be saying to me, 'You're too thin, and you don't look good.'"
