Demi Moore and her three daughters, Rumer, 19, Scout 16, and Tallulah, 14, sat for their first magazine family portrait in the April issue of Bazaar, and all four women had much to say about their family. Although the girls’ parents (dad is actor Bruce Willis) are divorced, and Ashton Kutcher is their stepdad, and just 11 years older than Rumer, the situation has overall been healthy, and happy, for all involved. Demi says she has always put her relationship with her girls first before her ties to Ashton, or any other love interest in her life. “I didn’t bring somebody into their lives lightly. … Being with me isn’t about just being in a relationship with me; it’s about someone stepping into a situation where there is already a huge level of responsibility,” she said.
Her youngest, Tallulah, says that having a young, and some say sexy, stepfather was an adjustment. “I was in fourth grade, so it didn’t hit me as much as it did Scout and Rumer. But it still hit me a little, and it still does now. I find it weird that people think my step dad is hot.” However, Aston has stepped up into his dad role responsibly, going to great measures to care for his three stepdaughters. “I am eternally grateful for having them in my life. That makes me want to cry and hug them and cry a little bit more,” he said to the magazine.
Though the conversation focused a great deal on their family, Demi weighed in on aging as well (this month is Bazaar’s “At Every Age” issue). “Look, I would be lying if I said I don’t have moments of panic when I look in the mirror and see things creeping in that weren’t there before,” Demi said to the magazine. “But now I stop, and instead of focusing on my flaws, I think about all that I have in my life.” She said that her loving family keeps her self-consciousness in check. “I have a wonderful marriage, I have three wonderful daughters, I have an incredible extended family, and I have loving, wonderful friends.” As a result, she says, “when I look back in the mirror, the reflection I see isn’t so bad, because I’m seeing the beauty of my whole being and my whole life.”
