Demi Moore Admits to Having Plastic Surgery

Demi Moore Changes Her Tune on Plastic Surgery

After years of denying having had cosmetic surgery, Demi Moore has tweaked what she says about it. Last year, she told French Marie Claire that she is surgery free. "It's completely false — I've never had it done," she said, adding, "I would never judge those who have."

But a few months (and one awkward W Photoshop controversy) later, her stance is slightly different. Now she's clarifying what she meant by that statement. "I have had something done but it's not on my face," she said in Elle UK. She continues:

In truth, I wish there was a little bit less curiosity and fascination with how I look, whether it's good or bad. I understand it, though, and I know it's not something I can control. I only hope it's serving some sort of purpose . . . . It feels like school-yard 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.

For what it's worth, I'd be irritated, too. This admission is unlikely to minimize speculation on what Demi may have had done, but it's always refreshing when people are honest about having had surgery. What do you think of this slight shift in Demi's message — does it change your opinion of her at all?

I think this all could be because...She's a smoker, and she's been a smoker for a long time. I don't know how she's gone this long without some kind of treatments or surgery. I believe she's doing something, or had something done. She's in her late 40's I think... and most smokers I've seen look far worse.

Anon #1 - you posted such a great comment. I completely agree. After reading Bella's response regarding her friend - I see why her opinion of Demi has changed. Thankfully it is for the good. Reason being is it is none of our business. Bella - I can only imagine you were referring to Nicole Kidman, for I cannot remember the last time I saw her face move. How wonderful to see women like Meryl Streep and Kathy Bates, where we can see every emotion in their face during a performance, and still both be incredibly beautiful women at the end of the day. I don't know, nor do I care if Demi has had some work to her face in which she either denies or as one poster suggested, carefully avoids. I happen to think being married to someone so much younger helps keep her feeling and looking young, and is a good part of the reason she is always glowing. A youthful glow, if you will.Interesting thread!

Agree with fashionplate52. No surgeries doesn't mean no fillers / botox.

Why so coy Demi? Anyone who's watched your movies can probably guess the body part you've had worked on (not that there's anything wrong with that).

Also, she is careful to say she hasn't had any SURGERIES on her face-I don't think she is counting botox/fillers as surgeries, instead local procedures. Either way, she looks gorgeous.

Oh yes, Brad Pitt definitely trained for Fight Club. Nobody looks like that without spending many hours in the gym! Bellafranki, Demi has said that she uses Helena Rubenstein products (she's a spokesperson) and she also likes Clarisonic Opal.

That's understandable BellaSugar. I know there are people who get more "help" with their appearance than others from personal trainers and cosmetic enhancements. My boyfriend has commented on wanting to look like Brad Pitt in Fight Club. I told him that Brad Pitt more than likely had lots of help from trainers, etc...to get into shape for that role. It's never a good idea to compare oneself to those in magazines and movies, because a lot of it is an illusion.

If she hasn't had anything done to her face, I want to know what kind of serums she's using, 'cause I need some of that!

Yeah I don't buy that she hasn't had work done on her face. It's just too tight.

It changes my opinion of her (in a good way) because I always like it when people are up front. It's preferable to people who act like they just magically don't age. I'm thinking of a certain different Hollywood actress whose face doesn't move, but she forcefully insists that she doesn't use Botox. It isn't as though using Botox makes her a bad person, so why act like it is so shameful? To each her own. With that said, Demi Moore has been hit with tons of speculative stories, and I'd be sick of them, too. I think she handled the issue well with her quote. Here's why I think these things are relevant: A friend of mine is turning 50 and she feels bad because she doesn't look like a lot of famous 50-year-olds. She mentioned one star and I said, "Yeah, but it looks like she has had an eye lift and cheek implants, plus the best facialists and colorists, and fillers and Botox." My friend was shocked to think that it might take that much work to look that "perfect," and it made her feel better to realize that she's aging beautifully on her own.

Some people just look younger than their age. Keanu Reeves looks young, but I hardly hear people accusing him of going under the knife or getting botox. Besides, it doesn't seem like an interesting topic to discuss in the first place. The topic itself usually stems from a place of hate and resentment.
