Actors Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher have been happily married for five years, but the actress has still not been able to shake of the label of being cougar because of the 15 year age difference between her and Ashton.

“Cougar has become so distasteful,” Moore told Harper’s Bazaar in an interview. The actress said she found out that the phrase (cougar) is used to describe women in their ‘thirties’ who dates a younger man. Demi expressed that she would preferred to be called a puma (used only for people in their 30s). “Puma has a sweeter quality, more elegant,” said Moore.

Apart from dealing with the names people are giving her, the 47-year-old actress is still angry over the claims that her hips were retouched on the cover of W magazine.

She has often refuted that she underwent plastic surgery to retain her stunning looks, but the airbrushing scandal that was sparked after her cover shoot for the magazine refuses to die down.

“What really bothered me wasn’t that people were saying it was retouched, it was that they were saying my hip was badly botched because a hunk of it was taken out,” she said.
