Moore urges fan to avoid look-alike surgery
LONDON: Demi Moore has reached out to a terminally-ill fan who plans to have cosmetic surgery to look like the actress before she dies, urging her not to go under the knife.
Brit Lisa Connell was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumour in 2006, and as a lifelong fan of the Ghost beauty, wants to splash $60,000 on surgery to transform herself into a Moore look-alike.
Connell wants to undergo an extensive make-over before she succumbs to the disease, including liposuction, breast enhancement, an eyebrow lift and extensive dental and dermatological work.
In her blog, the 29-year-old explains, “Demi Moore is an absolutely stunning woman and it has been mentioned that I have similar features even before she had all that surgery done, back in the early days in the 1980s/90s she was just as stunning. If someone asks me who do I think is beautiful in the public eye I would have to say Demi Moore.
“People think I’m crazy for doing this, but I know it will make my last months or years happier.”
Now, Moore has reacted to Connell’s aesthetic ambitions, begging her to rethink her surgery plans.
On her Twitter page, the star writes, “Wish I could contact this woman Lisa Connell who wants to have surgery to look like me & encourage her to not to! She is a beautiful girl!”
Moore is reported to have undergone a body overhaul in 2004 — allegedly spending $308,000 on a head-to-toe surgical makeover.
