Demi Moore feels like a child

demi_mooreDemi Moore, who has three daughters, Rumer, 21, Scout, 18 and 16-year-old Tallulah Belle with her ex-husband Bruce Willis, often forgets her age and thinks of herself as a young school girl.  She said: “I pretty much think of myself as like still being about five. Maybe that’s why my twitter picture is of me at five.” Speaking at a press conference, the 47-year-old actress told People.com: “I don’t know if there is any particular secret to staying youthful. I think that laughter and smiling are one of the best antidotes to aging that you could possibly have.” The actress – who is married to 32-year-old Ashton Kutcher – feels very “privileged” with her life and works hard to make sure her children have her “positive perspective” everyday. She said: “I feel like I have the fortune of privilege, particularly as it relates, say, to my children. I’ve always really tried to keep a positive perspective of what’s valuable. That who you are isn’t the stuff you have.”

    That explains why she married a boy.

    shannon, he is an adult man, not a boy. age doesnt matter when youre in love (as long as it is above the legal age limit and isnt breaking any laws or making you a pedo). im glad she has this outlook on life, too many people these days worry about trivial things, spend time worrying about the house being clean, how much money they have, things that in the end, dont actually MATTER. what matters at the end of the day is your family, your children, your spouse, your loved ones. when i have children, i hope i have the same kind of outlook on life that i can let the little things go and only concentrate on whats important.

    Demi has enough cash that she can pay someone to worry about all the little things for her…such as keeping the house clean. I mean, your house has to be clean. You can’t live like a pig just to spend time with your kids. There comes a time when you just have to clean the damn house. The dishes and laundry don’t take long to pile up when you have kids, that’s for sure, LOL. Oh, and if you don’t have enough cash coming in to keep up the house and the bills, yeah, you’re going to worry about money…”things that in the end”, actually DO “MATTER” as much as spending time with loved ones. What matters at the end of the day, is that yeah, your bills are paid, there’s a roof over your kids heads, food in their stomachs, clothes on their backs, your house is moderately clean and you spent some quality time with them and taught them right from wrong and did your best. That’s all you can do.

    I think I’ve prolonged my life laughing at this article.

    haha, funny and stupid way of she said!!!!!!!

  6. demigod • April 14, 2010 @ 11:40 PM

    Nance, that’s the ‘priveleged’ part.

    I agree with both Nancy and Mandee. (Is the devil’s furnace broken??). I think you probably have the same basic view, but have stated it from different perspectives. The basic essentials are very important, including food, shelter, a healthy environment, etc. as Nancy says. But as Mandee says, don’t get so caught up in the material things you don’t take full advantage of the joy of family. So yes, have a suitable house, but don’t worry about working extra long to have the biggest house in the neighbourhood. Keep things in perspective. (Pardon me Nancy and Mandee for interpreting your comments.)

    As for the article, I think most people like to at least believe they think/feel young. But how does a grown women think of herself as being five?? The life experience and outlook is so vastly different. Sure, say you feel like you are 20, but 5?

    And Shannon’s comment made me laugh even though I agree that age shouldn’t matter.

  8. tributegirl • April 15, 2010 @ 10:06 AM

    Actually the “5” thing made me wonder about her too, I think most people probably feel young inside, but more than likely people feel like a young adult, not a 5 year old child.

    just need a minute to fully visualize Demi Moore in a school girl outfit… nice!

    Good for her, age is just a number, it’s all about the attitude.

  10. silver • April 15, 2010 @ 1:03 PM

    I agree revolver that age is just a number, and attitude is important. But if I was Ashton, I wouldn’t want my wife to have the attitude of a 5 year old!

  11. Jo-Anne • April 15, 2010 @ 2:06 PM

    I dont know if there is any particular secret to staying youthful”….let’s ask your plastic surgeon the “secret”…

  12. Locode • April 15, 2010 @ 3:29 PM

    So essentially she’s saying that Ashton is a pedophile.

    I can’t wait until he starts (or has he already?) banging her daughters.

  13. revolver • April 15, 2010 @ 7:43 PM

    @Lacode – gotta keep it in the family.
    Wonder what Bruce Willis will have to say about that

    Silver on April 15, 2010 8:46 AM interpret all you like 😀 i still dont feel that money or a clean house are as important as making your children feel loved and cared for and making sure they are happy and healthy. yes, moderately clean is a good thing, but i dont see myself spending hours upon hours cleaning a house and working over time every day of the week just because people think that money is everything. my family isnt the touchy/feely/loving kind. we dont discuss our problems, tell each other we love each other, talk about anything with substance, its all about material possessions in this house, which is why i can form an opinion and decide that things like money and things we own and a spotless house are not important. i dont want my kids to grow up feeling the way i did, where the tv shows are more important than a conversation with your child, or you have everything you want except hugs and kisses and love, and wondering if anyone in your family cares about you at all. my kids will be raised differently, they dont need to be spoiled to be loved.

  15. silver • April 16, 2010 @ 5:56 PM

    Mandee, then it sounds like I interpreted you correctly.

  16. mandee • April 17, 2010 @ 2:45 PM

    you did. completely 🙂
