Demi Moore Talks Aging and Being the "Puma" Poster Girl

In the December issue of W magazine, the seemingly ageless Demi Moore, 47, talks about everything from being labeled a “cougar” for her relationship with Ashton Kutcher, 31, to aging in Hollywood. The former box office star, who stars in two upcoming indie films “Happy Tears” and “The Joneses” — and is also the face of the new Helena Rubinstein women’s fragrance “All You’ve Ever Wanted,” — says getting older has affected her acting career. “The frustrating part is that the type of roles I’d be interested in are not really coming to me,” says Moore, whose buff physique helped her attain roles like “G.I. Jane” and “Striptease.” “I hate to say it’s a function of my age—but yes, I think in some ways it is. The majority of [female] roles are geared between 25 and 35.” And about her “cougar” title, Moore prefers “puma.” “I’m certainly not the first person to be in a relationship with a younger man, but somehow I was plucked out as a bit of a poster girl,” says Moore, who first met Kutcher six and a half years ago. “I don’t know why that is. But I just kind of step back sometimes and say, ‘There is some reason, and what is it that I have to share in a positive way?” See more photos and the full interview with Demi at —Kristin Larson

She looks SICK – as for PUMA, I’m not buying anymore to help put money in Demi’s pocket. When they get rid of her, I’ll think about it again.

Kristen on

I hope that was a joke, Trish. She’s calling herself a puma, not wearing the brand Puma. Maybe you should try reading the article before opening your mouth, because you all succeeded in doing was making yourself look like an idiot.

Brook on

She said she would prefer to be called Puma, not Cougar. She never said she wad representing the brand Puma. Your purchases are safe.

Beth on
