Demi Moore's Obsession With Staying 'Young & Skinny'

I don't think Red Bull helps with either of those things.

Before this whole Ashton Kutcher divorce/mini-meltdown business, Demi Moore's reputation centered around how age-defiantly young she was. And you can't deny that the woman doesn’t look her age. At 49, Demi Moore makes Dakota Fanning look like a grandma.

But anyway, it turns out she was "dangerously desperate" to remain young, thin and attractive, according to PEOPLE.

"As Demi got older, she convinced herself that she needed to stay young and skinny to remain attractive to her husband," says a source who knows the former couple.

Doesn’t sound too abnormal for any woman, especially one whose husband is sixteen years her junior. But the source continued: "She needed reassurance all the time that she was hot and sexy."

Another source says that Demi "was always fixated on being young. And the only thing that tied her to that, as she got older, was her marriage to a younger guy and hanging around young people."

Well that explains the embarrassing dancing at a Snoop Dogg concert.

Meanwhile, another source close to Demi revealed that her mini-meltdown has been a huge blow : "Ego-wise, this is the worst thing that could happen to Demi, because she's such a private person. She's embarrassed."

Another insider said: "[Her problems] can be an opportunity, a blessing, and not a curse. The right intervention happened in her life. From a spiritual sense, it is a gift. She has a real opportunity to grow from it. She has to take responsibility for her life."
