Demi Moore

The full interview with Demi is in W Magazine

And the 46-year-old, labelled a cougar for her relationship with 15 years younger husband Ashton Kutcher, says she would rather be known as a puma.

‘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,’ she tells 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?”‘

Recently Demi’s marriage to Ashton was credited with causing a surge in women looking to date a younger man.

Ageless: Demi communicates with her many fans through Twitter

Back in 2005, just 8 per cent of single women in their 40s and 50s said they would date a man five or more years their junior.

Today, more than a third said they would consider a younger man, according to online dating service Parship.

Despite the age gap, mother-of-three Demi says she and Ashton, 31, are still very much in love.

‘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.’

In her interview Demi also talks about ageism in Hollywood.

‘The frustrating part is that the type of roles I’d be interested in are not really coming to me.

‘I hate to say it’s a function of my age [47] – but yes, I think in some ways it is.

‘The majority of [female] roles are geared between 25 and 35.’

It’s not just in affairs of the heart that Demi is a modern woman.

She is one of the most-followed celebrities on 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. They’re getting to see who I am.’
