Demi's Had Body Issues; Posh Is "Demanding" Sex

  • Demi Moore says she used to have "an extreme obsession" with her body. "I made it a measure of my own value." Furthermore, she explains:

"I tried to dominate it, which I did, and I changed it multiple times over. But it never lasted and ultimately it didn't bring me anything but temporary happiness. Does being thin resolve anything? No. The irony is that when I abandoned that desire to dominate my body, it actually became the body that I'd always wanted. But it only happened when I stopped trying to control it. At the end of the day, this kind of obsession is pointless and meaningless." Demi tells Elle magazine that the plastic surgery rumors are sort of true: "I have had something done but it's not on my face." But! She doesn't like the constant speculation about cosmetic alterations: "It feels like schoolyard name-calling a lot of the time. It hurts. You know what? Maybe one day I'll go under the knife. It just irritates me that people are constantly saying how much I've spent on plastic surgery." [News.com.au]
