Demi Moore is reportedly enjoying the "ego boost" her new relationship has given her.
The 50-year-old Hollywood star is apparently dating art dealer Vito Schnabel, who is 24 years her junior. They were apart for Thanksgiving but are planning to celebrate Christmas together, with Demi reportedly excited about her new romance.
"Demi loves younger men for two reasons - the ego boost she gets from knowing that a hot guy fancies her, but also because it makes her feel youthful. She looks amazing, and if these young guys are attracted to her - and she to them - then her view is, 'Why the hell not'" an insider laughed to Heat magazine.
The new couple met at a birthday party supermodel Naomi Campbell threw for her boyfriend Vladimir Doronin. Their romance has gone from strength to strength, although Demi is being careful that it doesn't become the most important thing in her life.
Her relationship with her daughters Rumer, Scout and Tallulah suffered after she split from her husband Ashton Kutcher - who was also younger than her - last year. Demi spent time in rehab after the break-up and her turbulent life apparently worried the girls.
Demi and her children were together over Thanksgiving, when they started to repair their bond.
"She knows how much healing needs to be done with the girls and she doesn't want to jeopardise that because of this new guy," the source claimed.
Earlier this week Vito denied he was dating Demi, although they were seen partying together and it's thought they just want to keep their relationship private.
