Demi Moore is finally happy with her body at 47

It has often been speculated as to whether Demi Moore has had work done on her face and body and if so how much. In an interview with Elle Magazine, the actress tried to set the record straight.

The mother of four did admit to previously having an 'extreme obsession' with her body but now finally at the age of 47, is happy in her own skin and no longer has a desire to change it.

She told the magazine, "I had an extreme obsession with my body. I made it a measure of my own value" she admits.

"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."

Rumours abound that the Hollywood star has spent upwards of USD $300,000 to get plastic surgery in order to keep her figure looking its best and though Demi admits to having some surgery done, she says the amount speculated has been grossly overestimated.

"I have had something done but it's not on my face," she told Elle magazine, but said the speculation was annoying and hurtful.

"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."

Now happily married to Ashton Kutcher, 15 years her junior, Demi says their age difference isn't an issue.

"Every once in a while it's funny if I think, "When I was this age, you were in second grade...", but really we're equal partners in this."

The pair haven't ruled out a child together, "We talk about it and it's something that we would like.
"He's an amazing father to my daughters already, so I have no doubt that if it's in our future, it would be another incredible part of our journey together."
