Demi Moore Denies Plastic Surgery
Prepare to be simultaneously perturbed and envious: Demi Moore has denied having cosmetic surgery.
The 46-year-old actress, who was rumored to have undergone $323,258 worth of operations, insists she has never gone under the surgeon’s knife, but admits she understands why it appeals to some women.
Demi, whose svelte appearance in 2003 movie Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle sparked surgery rumors, said: “It’s completely false—I’ve never had it done, but I would never judge those who have. If it’s the best thing for them, then I don’t see a problem. On the other hand, I don’t like the idea of having an operation to hold up the aging process—it’s a way to combat your neurosis. The scalpel won’t make you happy.”
Demi, who celebrates her 47th birthday in November, admits her views might change as her body begins to alter. She told France’s Marie Claire, “That said, the day when I start crying when I look at myself in the mirror might be the day when I’m less adamant about not having it done. For the moment I prefer to be a beautiful woman of my age than try desperately to look 30.”
Demi, who has been married to 31-year-old actor Ashton Kutcher since 2005, added women feel pressured to look younger for much longer than men:
“Again, social conditioning states that when men age they become more charming. We use that useful word they are ‘distinguished’. Men seem to get classier than us when they age. We live in a society which glorifies youth for women and gives value to maturity only for men. It’s necessary to get rid of these ridiculous codes. It’s fear which makes women less attractive, not age or appearance.”
