Looking fresh, young, and ready for the spring season, 47-year-old Demi Moore graces the cover of the April 2010 issue of Harper’s Bazaar US in a colorful and refreshing shoot. During an interview for the magazine, Demi reveals a glimpse into her marriage, work, and her attitude on aging.
On her relationship with husband Ashton Kutcher: “I knew it had the potential to be something special right away…It was like meeting somebody that I’ve just known, where you just recognize one another. It was so disproportionate, the level of emotion we were experiencing to the time we had spent together. But when you don’t know someone, you can’t just jump and say ‘I love you. Nice to meet you, I love you! … We used to end our calls or e-mails with ‘And everything we don’t say.’ It just seemed too much, too soon.”
On whether she considers herself a cougar or puma: “Cougar has become so distasteful. I really hate that expression.” She said recently that when it comes to her relationship, she’d prefer to be called a puma. “It has a sweeter quality, more elegant. And then somebody said to me, ‘Pumas are only for people in their 30s.’”
On the photoshop controversy over her hip on the cover of W magazine in December: “Okay, that is literally my shape,” Demi says. What bothered her, she says, “wasn’t that people were saying it was retouched, it was that they were saying my hip was so badly botched because a hunk of it was taken out. I called the photographers, and they said, ‘We did not touch anything on your hip, your thigh, or your waist. It was the position.’”
On growing older: “I feel better in my skin, 100 percent. That’s the tradeoff. You have greater effects of gravity, but the better sense of yourself you have is something I wouldn’t trade. Women who lie about their age – why?”
On designer Alexander McQueen: “McQueen was a genius. I was always thrilled to wear his clothes because they were more than fashion; they were truly works of art.”
