London: Demi Moore says being skinny doesn`t bring happiness and wants her three daughters to know being thin isn`t everything.

"It`s never simply about being skinny - I know because I have lived it. I was a little heavier and then got really skinny and it didn`t make me happy. I liked it but it didn`t bring happiness. I`d never want my kids to go through that. It`s starting to bring a greater awareness too - that is extremely dangerous," contactmusic.com quoted her as saying.

The 47-year-old beauty who is married to 31-year-old actor Ashton Kutcher also believes her fashion sense has got better with age.

"I had a very chubby face and my kids love to pull out pictures from before they were born. I definitely made some hideous choices and looked terrible and I think, `Ugh! Look at that hair!` But I think I`ve grown into a face that is something I like," she added.
