Demi Moore : Biography
Born Demetria Guynes in Roswell, NM, on November 11, 1962, Moore led a troubled childhood. To call it tumultuous would be something of an understatement: along with her mother, half-brother and stepfather, she moved no less than 30 times before her adolescence, thanks to her stepfather's job as a newspaper ad salesman. The problems that went along with such an itinerant lifestyle were compounded by the dysfunctional, sometimes abusive relationship between Moore's mother and stepfather. The latter committed suicide when Moore was 15, around the time that she discovered that he was not her biological father. She dropped out of school a year later and did some modeling in Europe. When she was 18, Moore married rocker Freddy Moore; the union lasted four years, during which time the actress landed her first role playing Jackie Templeton on the TV daytime drama General Hospital.
Moore was married to musician Freddy Moore from 1980 to 1984 and to actor Bruce Willis from 1987 to 2000. She and Willis have three daughters, Rumer, Scout and Tallulah. The actress married her much younger actor boyfriend Ashton Kutcher at a top-secret ceremony in Los Angeles on September 25, 2005.
Demi Moore: Career
She worked in television before making her film debut in Choices (1981), but her major breakthrough came with St Elmo's Fire (1984).
Moore advanced into lightweight ingenue movie turns and then into more serious dramatic roles. Ghost (1990) made her a major star. A fitness buff with no fear of self-promotion, Moore posed nude for the cover of Vanity Fair magazine while eight months pregnant in 1991. Her $12 million payday for the 1996 movie Striptease made her, for a time, Hollywood's highest-paid actress, but after starring in the big-budget drama G. I. Jane (1997, directed by Ridley Scott) she appeared in fewer and smaller films. In 2003 she returned to the screen as the villain in Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle (starring Drew Barrymore, Cameron Diaz and Lucy Liu). Her other films include A Few Good Men (1992, with Tom Cruise and Jack Nicholson), Indecent Proposal (1993, with Robert Redford), The Scarlet Letter (1995, as Hester Prynne) and The Juror (1996, with Alec Baldwin).
