Stretching: The truth

By now everyone's heard about Demi Moore using Twitter to announce to the world that she has "excess skin & stretch marks!" WB can only add this:


Not why would she do this (she's a self-obsessed celeb, after all), but why the hell would anyone care?

Okay, maybe Ashton cares — and then again, maybe he doesn't. But the rest of us, we have quite a few other, much more important things to pay attention to, and "mrskutcher" is not one of them.

So why did even the Huffington Post make Demi's battered baby belly a headline on its main page? Why hasn't this been relegated to, like, page 83 of every entertainment rag, and the last 15 seconds of every show? Demi claims that she's standing up for women everywhere who are held up to impossible standards. But she's also claiming — vehemently — that she has never had any kind of cosmetic surgery:

"I’ve never had it done. I would never judge those who have—if it's the best thing for them then I don't see a problem. But I don't like the idea of having an operation to hold up the aging process—it's a way to combat your neurosis."

Umm... okaaaaay — but she'd better hope that no one ever goes to Metacafe to compare nude scenes from her early films, like About Last Night, to her later work like Striptease. Because if they do, the Twitter wars are gonna start all over again about the particular work she, er, "hasn't" had done.

Not that we care. Just saying.
