You guys, I really, really, reeeeeally want to like this editorial of Demi Moore in the December issue of W Magazine, but I don't. I just don't. Don't get me wrong, I think Demi is the bee's knees. She's one hot momma who, despite the fact that she has obviously had some cosmetic surgery, hasn't gone overboard. Unlike most of Hollywood she knows when to say when. The same unfortunately cannot be said however of the editors of W who have made the actress look like yet another plastic surgery. At 47 Demi looks amazing for anyone's age, but thanks to a little overdosing on the Blend tool girlfriend looks just like everyone else. Ah well. So goes the life of an American fashion publication. I guess the day I should worry is the day I see a celeb in a magazine looking authentically like themself. That's when I'll be flocking to the store to stock up on bottled water and canned goods, because surely the anhilation of photoshop is the third sign of the appocalpse.
But while we wait for that, here are some excerpts from Ms. Moore's article with W, which is much more entertaining than the mag's alleged pics of her. Meanwhile I'll be working to stop singing "Moore, Moore, Moore! How do you like it? How do you like it?..." That song is totally going to be stuck in my head all day now.
On keeping her surname professionally: “As a married woman, I am and will always be Mrs. Kutcher,” says Moore. “But I have my career as Demi Moore.”
On her feud with Perez Hilton over discussing her teenage daughter's body: “Clearly Perez Hilton isn’t taking violating child pornography laws very seriously.” Hilton fired back on his site by calling her tweet “libelous, defamatory, inaccurate and stupid.” The whole subject clearly continues to inflame Moore’s sensitivities, turning her from cougar to mama grizzly bear. Vaguely citing legal limitations, she carefully chooses her words. “We were away for my daughter’s birthday,” she explains. “When I came back, thousands upon thousands of people were writing to me, outraged about what had been posted about my 15-year-old daughter. I felt like I needed to acknowledge it.”
On the term "cougar": “I’d prefer to be called a puma,” she says, explaining how she came up with the new designation and “Twittered it out. People wrote back hilarious stuff, saying, ‘I’m going to get T-shirts that say puma power.’”
On Twitter bridging the gap between she and her fans: I can’t impress enough the difference in how people are perceiving me,” says Moore as she muses on the power of her Twitter life as Mrskutcher. “They’re getting to see who I am.”
On her love for husband Ashton Kutcher: The most overwhelming part of meeting someone that you already felt you had such a deep and old connection with is that your feelings are greater than the time you’ve had to actually be with one another,” she says. “Now we’ve had the physical time together. The love he has for me makes me a better person by giving me the courage to take risks. I can fail and have someone who loves me just the same. I never knew it was quite possible.”
