Demi Moore: I don’t want my daughters thinking thin equals happy
Demi Moore has decided to stop excessively exercising and dieting because she doesn’t want her three teenage daughters to become equally obsessed with their bodies.
She admitted recently that she took her quest for physical perfection “a bit too far” and told Vanity Fair: “When I was living that idea that if I was thinner I would be better and more accepted and more attractive, I stopped looking at it as being thin or skinny.”
“I have three daughters with three very different types of bodies. I have one that’s very teeny - always has been. Very long-limbed and naturally thin.”
“And then I have my other two, who are much more voluptuous and busty. I just try to encourage them to find the beauty in who they are and what they have, as opposed to focusing on what they’re not.”
“I want them to know that being thin does not equate to happiness.”
She also told the News of the World this week that she believes her marriage to Ashton Kutcher has helped her appearance: “Our mental and emotional states play a vital role in how we all look and feel. I’ve always said that people tend to look better when they’re in love.”
