Demi Moore: ‘I’d Prefer To Be Called A Puma’

Chris Cizek

Demi Moore isn't happy for being the poster child for older women who happen to like younger men.

"I'm certainly not the first person to be in a relationship with a younger man, but somehow I was plucked out as a bit of a poster girl," Demi, 47, who is married to Ashton Kutcher, 31, told the latest issue of W magazine. "I don't know why that is. But I just kind of step back sometimes and say, 'There is some reason, and what is it that I have to share in a positive way?'"

In fact, Demi would actually like to be called by another cat-like name.

"I'd prefer to be called a puma," she told the mag. "[I] Twittered it out. People wrote back hilarious stuff, saying, 'I'm going to get T-shirts that say puma power.'"

Regardless of titles, Demi said she has a deep connection with her husband of four years, Ashton.

"The most overwhelming part of meeting someone that you already felt you had such a deep and old connection with is that your feelings are greater than the time you've had to actually be with one another," she said. "Now we've had the physical time together. The love he has for me makes me a better person by giving me the courage to take risks. I can fail and have someone who loves me just the same. I never knew it was quite possible."

And Demi has another close connection – with her fans online – brought to the actress by the powers of social networking Web site, Twitter.


"People are much more interested in what I have to say directly… and that really changed the whole dynamic I have with fans," she said.

"I can't impress enough the difference in how people are perceiving me," she added. "They're getting to see who I am."
