Demi Moore seemingly has it all: A beautiful figure at 47, a successful career, a glamorous Hollywood life, and a leading younger man (heard of Ashton Kutcher?). What more could she want? Believe it or not, she’s bananas about monkeys. The adorable stuffed animal kind, which she began collecting as a child growing up in Roswell, New Mexico.
In January, Moore shared her doll obsession with Twitter followers (she posts as @mrskutcher) just after finding a vintage Curious George monkey while shopping with her youngest daughter Tallulah Belle Willis at the world famous Rose Bowl Flea Market in Pasadena. Pressed by her nearly 3 million followers to reveal more about her collection, Moore posted this photo of herself holding a black and white picture of a three-year-old Moore cuddling with a toy. She titled it: “Me and my first monkey.”
This wasn’t the last time the “Ghost” and “Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle” star, whose latest film called “The Joneses” costarring David Duchovny, publicly acknowledged her unique passion. While chatting about monkey business on “The Ellen Show” in March, Moore received a very large simian surprise. Watch her reaction in this video.
In addition to monkeys, she also has a penchant for life-like figurines, including one so big that it supposedly has its own house in Hailey, Idaho, according to the book What Celebrities Collect by Michele Karl. Her husband, Kutcher, admitted in one tweet on his own Twitter page that his wife should open a museum with her collection of 3,000 contemporary art dolls, featuring hundreds of Barbies and GI Joes. Funny how she owns the latter considering that she famously shaved off her lucious black locks in 1997 to play a female attempting to pass the notorious Navy SEALs test in “GI Jane.” Wonder if she owns a GI Jane doll, too?
