Demi Moore’s bikini body at 48: gorgeous or too skinny?

Demi Moore was photographed working a bikini in the Caribbean over the holidays. (Video above) I’m trying to decide if she looks too skinny or if she’s gorgeous that way, and I think the answer is a little from column a, a little from column b. (To rip off a phrase from Kaiser.) She could stand to gain ten pounds but she looks amazing. When I see women who look like this I wonder how much they eat and if they go hungry a lot. With Demi, we know she does starve frequently because she touts that “Master Cleanse” diet that consists of maple syrup, cayenne pepper and lemon juice. The longest I’ve gone without eating solid food is an entire day for a colonoscopy prep and I never want to repeat that. I wouldn’t do it for an enviable bikini body either, as I’ve had plenty of chances and have passed them up in favor of chocolate, coffee, red wine and hard rolls. (Not necessarily in that order.) I know a lot of people say they would “kill” for a body like hers, but they totally wouldn’t starve.

So is it worth starving to look like this? (I’m not saying you have to starve to get a great bikini body, just that we know Demi does it.) In her case, it probably is. It’s important to her to be whippet thin for her much younger husband with a wandering eye, and for the sake of her public image. She’ll go to lengths the rest of us won’t, but it’s not like she’s working a 9 to 5 either. The skinny bitch. She wouldn’t survive very long during a zombie apocalypse, despite the amount of training and preparation her husband claims he’s doing for it.

    She looks good and for 48 she looks great. Hard to believe her son, Ashton is almost full grown.

  2. JB says:

    Too skinny. I love her tits. You should see Striptease.

  3. crab says:

    I want that cover-up dress!!

  4. flourpot says:

    She looks like she’s trying to hard. Which she is. She’s, what? Almost 50? She needs to start the whole aging gracefully thing. I like Demi. I’d rather not see her looking like Madonna in a few years.

  5. happygirl says:

    LMAO, Rita!! Hahahaha!!

  6. Tess says:

    Love to know how she had the obligatory Mom-talk with Rumer about how looks aren’t important.

  7. sickofit says:

    thanks for the article. ive questioned myself those questions over and over again.
    and think of your mood while not eating.
    i think with all those skinny celebs there is starving, sports and pills. what a live :-(

  8. Arianna says:

    @ rita
    bahahahah! said perfectly.

  9. fanny says:

    She looks great. But it must be a strain after a while trying to look as young as her husband. Fortunately, he is starting to look a little aged himself. Soon they can all relax for real.

  10. Westcoaster says:

    What happened to her knees?

  11. Roma says:

    @gee: the old lady knees are a dead giveaway. I’m just waiting for her and Madonna to insist on doctors performing kneelifts.

  12. mslewis says:

    She’s 48. She looks great. But it’s all artificial, isn’t it? The woman has fake boobs and has probably had lipo more than once. Her face is no longer real. She can’t eat food and she most likely works out four to five hours a day. For what? So she can stay “young”? Won’t work. She’s STILL 48, everybody knows it and nobody in Hollywood wants to hire her. Personally, I feel sorry for her. Time must be a scary thing for any woman who can’t grow old gracefully and accept who she is.

  13. Lola7 says:

    Well, too bad that rocken body doesn`t keep her husband faithful.

  14. Vi says:

    nah i wouldn’t starve for that body. or anyone’s body. because i don’t. it’s not worth being hungry all the time just to rock a bikini for 2 weeks of the year.

  15. mln76 says:

    She looks good but looks like she is starving at the same time. I just have to think it isn’t worth it. I mean isn’t the one thing you are supposed to get out of aging being more comfortable with yourself? She is a beautiful woman and would still look great if she had another 10 lbs on her.

  16. Maryann says:

    Gee I was thinking the same thing she can’t hide her age in those knees, it sad that she feels she has to starve herself with her ten-day Master Cleanse Diet and get plastic surgery to look that way.

  17. devilgirl says:

    Her body looks good, but like her face, it isn’t gorgeous.

  18. Maryann says:

    Did she forget that she has kids, 2 which are still living at home she and Ashton are always going on vacation leavening the kids at home; but I guess it would be no fun for her kids to have to babysit their mother and son husband both Demi and Ashton act younger then Scout LaRue and Tallulah Belle. Demi needs to grow up and stop acting like a preteen with her crazy twitter and photos, when Demi married Ashton those kids didn’t gain a new dad they gain two younger sibling.

  19. Bubbling says:

    For now it looks surprisingly good, but fast forward two years, I don’t care how thin you are, loose skin is what happens, and it looks even worse on skinny body…To conclude aging is a bitch

  20. Leticia says:

    Rita, you’re on fire today!

  21. Samigirl says:

    She has an amazing body, but fact is….shes almost 50. She needs to start covering up.

  22. malachais says:

    she looks good, but I wish she would cut it down a bit and think about herself, what’s good for her…I think she is so caught up in Ashton’s life and what he needs that her life is consumed by his needs.

  23. Bodhi says:

    I don’t think that she should cover up just because she is almost fifty. She is at the beach for God’s sake, no one covers up at the beach no matter how eye searing they might be.

    Anyway, yeah she is skinny as hell but it would be impossible for me to ever look like that even if I lost my mind & starved myself. It took me a long time to realize that & no youth chasing plastic surgery junkie is going to change my mind.

    ps: I heard that she had a knee-lift a few years ago after seeing pictures of herself at an awards show. Though why she’d be at an awards show is a mystery to me

  24. DGO says:

    You’re looking at the results of full-body lipo. Can’t say it’s healthy, particularly when someone’s a repeat offender.

  25. Lori says:

    I think she’d survive a zombie apocalypse just fine — she wouldn’t be good eating, not much meat on her.

  26. guesty says:

    @Rita…lol! On fire & ita! Haha.

  27. RHONYC says:

    at 5’10″ and pushing forty myself…gotta tell ya, the best thing i ever did in my 30′s was put on 20lbs.

    my build is a bit tyra/stephanie seymour-esq & i am gradually losing some poundage, but i think my boobs and can look a bit sexier with the xtra meat on my bones.

    i think i’d look 90 yrs old if i was a size 6 now. :-)

  28. trollydolly says:

    @Samigirl: Why should she start covering up because she’s nearly 50? Is there a law that decrees that women have to hide their bodies at a certain age?
    I find that sort of comment infuriatingly ignorant. What age are you?

  29. Isa says:

    She supposedly also had plastic surgery done on her knees a couple of years ago.

  30. kiko says:

    she looks amazing i would kill to look like that when i am 48..even with those knees :lol:

  31. Johnny Depp's Girl says:

    @ RITA….. LMFAO!!!!

    I cant come up with anything better than that! Thank you!

  32. OhCamille! says:

    I believe all the plastic surgery rumors about her. Knee lift and lipo and everything she’s done to her face.

    But, staying thin is not hard if you don’t eat pasta, bread, rice or anything like that. I’m 47 and a size 4 because I have a gluten allergy and stay away from those foods. I eat everything else. I do not starve myself, I drink beer, eat chocolate and icecream. I don’t have a regular exercise program either. I also do not come from a “thin” family. So, one can stay thin and not starve themselves.

    That said, I do think she binge/starves herself, but I don’t think one has to cover up because of their age. Helen Mirren looks great at 60 – come on people!!!!!!!

  33. Mizz Tickles says:

    Well said Mslewis and Rita thanks for the giggle to start the day.

    Ashton should be grateful to his wife for keeping him relevant.

  34. Honey B says:

    C’mon ladies? Why? She looks fantastic and I’m going to go out on a limb and say that many of the women who post on this thread about Paltrow and Moore secretly harbour resentment at the lives these women have been able to build for themselves.

    Men have been trading older women for younger females forever. I salute any sister who breaks the mould if only to balance the scale. She does not look two years away from 50, heck at this point she’s defying the laws of aging. He’s keeping her young, as I’m sure Bruce, Tom, heck even Hefner’s youngins’ seemingly do for them. I don’t see men lining up to berate them. Many will sneer, but I say go Vivica, Demi, Maddona, Susan and any other women who defy the roles men have dictated for women and that we steadfastly uphold. SMH.

  35. sara says:

    She doesn’t look younger, but she looks good for 48. I know women her age who look like her without any plastic surgery.

  36. S_____ says:

    The same thing is slowly happening to my knees. :( Aaaaaaging is a b*tch.

    not that she’s aging!!!

  37. Nikster says:

    Not that I’m hating on older women, but she’s getting saggy knees. There’s no hiding that. She is beautiful, though.

  38. Crash2GO2 says:

    She probably does go hungry. But that’s not necessarily a bad thing, as long as when you do eat, you eat smart.

  39. D says:

    She looks good, but her husband is 10+ years younger than her…I’m sure she does it for him.

  40. original kate says:

    “Hard to believe her son, Ashton is almost full grown.”

    oh SNAP!

  41. whatyousay?! says:

    Do you see her awesome muscle definition? you don’t get that from starving–you get that from exercising hard! most ladies her age who don’t eat get that grandma egg stomach no matter how thin they are–you have to work really hard to get a flat chiseled stomach like demi’s. as for the knees, i thought it was a known fact that she had plastic surgery on them just prior to her charlie’s angels comeback? maybe shes due for another knee-lift but i think she looks fantastic and she definitely is working respectfully hard to look that way.

  42. TeeTee says:

    Demi as a whole still looks old, her jaw structure mouth area is going older.

    she tries too hard-she doesn’t look bad but her knees and hands..

    she is too desperate AND Ibeleive she is older, if the public knows 48, then you can ALWAYS tack on a few more yrs.
    since she is obsessed w/age, I highly doubt she’s telling the truth..

    not bad, but not attractive to me, Raquel Welch/Sophie Loren lk better.

  43. Yscho says:

    @rita love your comment, so funny lol

  44. mimi says:

    @ ms lewis: you hit it right on the head!!! I agree!!

  45. whitedaisy says:

    There is nothing as unattractive as desperation.

  46. Belle Epoch says:

    But she already had her knees “done” awhile ago! I remember, because I couldn’t imagine what could be “done” to her knees at that point. But they “did” something, because she didn’t like the way they looked.

    If only I had the time and money to worry about what my knees looked like.

  47. MrsOdie2 says:

    She looks great. I’ll bet that she spends HOURS working out every day. But that’s her job: to look good. If that were my job, I’d put in 40 hours a week doing it too!

    I think she’d look younger if she’d quit smoking ten years ago. And like others have pointed out, when it comes to true age, the knees don’t lie.

  48. Str8Shooter says:

    @Rita: that was hysterical!

  49. OfficialB*tch says:

    People…c*caine is a helluva drug.
    You can eat – and you can’t gain weight.
    Sad but true.

  50. Shapoonia says:

    Folks, I am 50 years old and pretty thin, but I sure don’t look like Demi – AND if I did, I would wear a bikini until I was unable, just like Helen Mirren (love!). I think Demi looks AWESOME – even without the phrase “for her age” tacked on. I am sure she’s had a ton of plastic surgery, works out constantly, and starves herself, but who can argue with those results? The woman is gorgeous. I would bet that even w/o her younger husband, she would do it to make herself happier. Kudos to her!

  51. OtherChris says:

    There are women at my gym who look as good as her at the same age. Some of it’s genetics, such of its plastic surgery and a lot of it is 2 hours a day at the gym.

  52. Jeri says:

    She got brand new tits for Strip Tease. I think she had those taken out & replaced w/smaller ones.

    Time to get her knees lifted again.

    She does look good but she tries too hard at everything.

  53. hairball says:

    “There is nothing as unattractive as desperation.” – AGREE!

    Why should she cover up because *gasp* she’s almost 50??

    I think she has a sad life. I think she goes to great lengths to stay that thin through going hungry, extreme diets, and excessive exercise.

    I used to think people who were thin just magically were that way, with no effort and no discipline. I resented almost that I had to eat sensibly and exercise to stay thin. But I’ve come to realize no one has some magic engine that burns every calorie no matter what.

    I used to jog 6 miles almost every day to stay thin. But it was not sustainable long-term, so now I do balance of food and exercise.

    Feel sorry for Demi’s life actually.

  54. fizXgirl314 says:

    What’s up with that first picture? I thought she was supposed to be all toned and shit…

  55. moops says:

    Skinny + young = sexy or waifish. Skinny + old = gristly or frail. Time for Demi to think about putting on a few pounds. No, she won’t look as good as she used to, JUST LIKE THE REST OF US! Ya’ gotta make due with what ya’ got.

  56. Kim says:

    To bad we dont all have the money to buy her body like she did.

    Ill give her credit although she has had alot of work/lipo sculpting done she still has to maintain her body and she looks good.

    I just wish it didnt scream IM SO AFRAID OF AGING! like everything does with Demi.

  57. Ruffian9 says:

    “There is nothing as unattractive as desperation.”



  58. whatyousay?? says:

    howdy, you crazy man. anorexia looks like skin and bones..not muscle tone. if she were anorexic shed be waay skinnier. just face it she looks awesome. deal with it.

  59. Jazz says:

    Looks like it’s time for another knee lift.

  60. sara says:

    @hairball’I used to think people who were thin just magically were that way, with no effort and no discipline. But I’ve come to realize no one has some magic engine that burns every calorie no matter what.’

    Ppl who are naturally fat have to diet and exercise to become and stay thin, ppl who are naturally thin don’t have to do any of that, they don’t gain weight no matter what. Naturally thin ppl really are magically thin with no effort and no discipline like you said.

  61. Toe says:

    She looks good. I totally agree with Honey B. No one complained Bruce girlfriend half his age. Looks like we still have a long we to go.

  62. Blowfish says:

    To all you haters out there you’re just jealous that you could never be that hot, plastic surgery or otherwise. She puts most women to shame in the looks dept. Any man would jump at the chance to be with her, yours included!

  63. eternalcanadian says:

    So that’s what years and numerous plastic surgery can do for an almost 50 year old woman whose teenager husband has a wandering eye.

    Funny how in the midst of all that surgery and stuff Demi forgot to do her knees and hands. :P
