What the Hell Happened to Demi Moore?

Demi Moore

Demi Moore

Demi Moore  was launched to stardom along with the rest of the Brat Pack.  But while her colleagues’ careers were cooling in the 90’s, Moore’s star kept rising.  By the middle of the decade, Moore was the highest-paid actress in Hollywood.  But soon after her career peaked, Moore walked away from it all to focus on her personal life.

So, what the hell happened?

moore - cross eyed

As a child, Demi was cross-eyed. She underwent two surgeries to correct her vision.

Demi Moore came from humble beginnings.  Her parents separated before she was born – a fact she did not discover until she was 13.  She was cross-eyed as a child and also suffered from a kidney dysfunction.  When Moore was 15, her mother left her husband and moved to Hollywood to work for a magazine-distribution company.  Two years later, Moore’s adopted father took his life.

At the age of 16, Moore moved out on her own.  She dropped out of high school during her junior year to pursue a career in entertainment.  Three weeks before her 17th birthday, she met rock musician, Freddy Moore who was married to another woman.  Six months later, at the age of 17, Demi Moore married the recently divorced rock star.

Freddy Moore was the lead singer for a band called the Nu-Kats.  Moore and her husband co-wrote three songs together.  The band is best known for one of those songs, It’s Not a Rumor.  Demi appeared in the video.

The song was not a hit, but it received a lot of play on MTV in the early 80s.

In 1981, Moore lied about her age in order to pose for the cover of the adult magazine, Oui.  According to Moore, “only posed for the cover of Oui—I was 16; I told them I was 18.”  There were pictures of Moore inside the magazine, but Moore claimed they were re-purposed from a European fashion shoot.

From 1982-1983, Moore appeared on the daytime soap opera, General Hospital.  Moore played investigative reporter, Jackie Templeton.

All of this was pre-Brat Pack.

    Moore, whose last regular TV role was on General Hospital in the ‘80s, is set to play a mom whose 5-year-old daughter is kidnapped in the drama 10 Days in The Valley, from the co-creator of Rookie Blue. The project is currently being shopped to networks.

  3. Demi Moore.

    Back around 1992, my family and I were on vacation in Vegas.

    My mom, being a huge Robert Redford fan heard that he was making a movie at the adjacent hotel. Well, we had some time to spare and she wanted to see if she could get a glimpse of him, possibly an autograph.

    If you haven’t guessed yet, the movie being filmed was “Indecent Proposal.” The scene that we watched being filmed was where she is going to the hotel dress store, notices a dress she likes and R.R. ends up buying it for her.

    We hung around the hallway for longer than we should have (in my opinion at least, while you would think it would be interesting to see a movie being shot, it’s boring as shit). My mom spotted Demi, and suggested I ask for her autograph. I don’t know who this broad is or did I give a shit, but hey, I could get my mom an autograph since she knows who she is.
    Cut to 10 year old little girl me, waiting with a paper and pen in my hand as Demi went on her break and her bodyguard was escorting her to the elevator. I politely ask, “Ms. Moore, do you mind if I have an autograph?” She couldn’t be bothered to stop or even give me a response. Her bodyguard said, “She’ll give you one when she gets back” and they continued walking.

    Here I am, again, not really giving a shit if I got an autograph in the first place but whatever. We hung around some more, talking to the crew and getting some pics and she finally came back. Keep in mind, we were the only “fans” in the hallway and I was the only one asking for an autograph.

    I saw her exit the elevator and anxiously held out my paper and pen. “Ms. Moore, can I..?” Before I even finished she breezed past me, no eye contact, nothing. Bitch couldn’t stop for a goddamned second to give a kid an autograph. Now, I know it’s not like she spit in my face, but coming from a 10 year old, I didn’t really understand why she straight up ignored my ass. Again, we were the only people in the hallway aside from anyone directly working on the movie or various hotel staff.

    I was more upset because I wanted to get that autograph for my mom, not for myself. She damn well knew what she was doing and maybe I’m still looking at it through the eyes of a 10 year old, but for fucks sake you cunt. I’m glad she got fucked over by douchebag Ashton Kutcher, overdosed on whip-it’s while pushing 50 years old and her daughter looks like a f***ing potato.

    On the bright side, she’s been the only offending celebrity I have ever had the displeasure of meeting.

    To name a few, Keanu Reeves, Ron Jeremy, Cher, Debbie Reynolds are some really great and gracious celebs. People like them make up for the Demi Moore’s of the Hollywood world.

  12. Actors almost cast in video game movie disasters

    http://www.looper.com/31804/actors-almost-cast-video-game-movie-disasters-2/

    Demi Moore (Lara Croft in Tomb Raider)

    Lara Croft is one of the most beloved video game characters of all time, having recently set the record for highest number of magazine cover photos—1,230—in history. “Lara Croft is one of the most vital and iconic characters in gaming, with a powerful legacy and a string of great games under her belt,” said editor of Guinness World Records Gamer’s Edition Stephen Daultrey.

    The aforementioned number of magazine covers includes those from movies, culture, and lifestyle magazines, not just from video game magazines—and we bet Angelina Jolie was on the cover of a lot of them leading up to her debut as the big-screen version of the character in Simon West’s Lara Croft: Tomb Raider. But before Jolie was cast as the English archaeologist, Paramount Pictures reportedly looked into casting Demi Moore.

    It’s unclear if Moore chose not to move forward with the role or if the studio simply lost interest. All we know is that Jolie eventually joined the film and became the face of Lara Croft for many years. Now Warner Bros. is looking to change that with their 2018 Tomb Raider movie, starring Alicia Vikander as Lara Croft.

    She used to look like this.

    She has aged very badly because she’s too thin. There used to be a saying, when you get older, you have to chose between your ass or your face (figure or face), because older women need a little plumpness on the face to look more youthful. She’s stayed thin, so her face looks far too haggard for her age.

    She was beautiful. Especially when she had her makeover and showed up looking very glamorous with the short hair. Plus she had something different. She had great instincts on what to scripts to pick. Then, what I think happened, is she got older and her confidence and instincts got rattled. She tried to hard to remain 29. She turned herself into a joke and it didn’t go well. She want from being an A list actress to being a publicity stunt. Foisting her ugly kids on us didn’t help any. She was a perfectly fine actress. To say she wasn’t beautiful is ridiculous. I like her a lot better than Julia Roberts.

    Very true, [R14]. As soon as she got together with Kutcher, her descent was unavoidable.

    She also started getting f***ed up on drugs again. She was known for being one of the actresses who would not touch them, and almost overnight, she started using heavily. From what I understand, she nearly died during one incident. I recall seeing her often after that. She was very frail and thin. Tiny. The break up with Kutcher did a huge number on her.

    She has straightened out since, and has gained some weight. Hopefully she’ll remain healthy. She’s actually a very nice woman. I wish her all the best.

    She was very beautiful in that rare way that appeals to men and to women. The Audrey Hepburn kind of beauty, but filtered through an 80’s sensibility.

    And she was once the highest paid actress in Hollywood, which means she was the highest paid actress in the world. And yet, she couldn’t much act. She was photogenic. It starts and finishes there.

    What [R1] said. She was just a soap opera actress — and, as several critics noted, not a very good one — who struck pay dirt when she married Bruce Willis. His being a movie star (because of the “Die Hard” films) basically made it possible for her to become one herself. I’m sure if Willis had stayed in television after “Moonlighting,” she likely would have done the same.

    In fairness, Demi hasn’t been the only TV actress to score a film career because she married a movie star. Please see Jennifer Aniston and Garner.

    [R15], Demi had a drug problem almost from the beginning of her career. When she was in St. Elmo’s Fire, she had a hard time making it to set, due to drugs. She stopped after that, for the most part, and went downhill after her breakup with Ashton Kutcher. In the 80’s/90’s she was known as “Gimme Moore”, because she had an overly inflated ego, and made outrageous demands upon movie sets, which didn’t help her standing in the business. In the end, she pushed her weight around too much, her acting was never all that amazing, and her chickens came home to roost. She got what she deserved.

    When Moore married Willis his star was on the rise, but she was already a movie star. He was just breaking out of TV. By the time she married Kutcher she’d been out of the spotlight for years.

    As she grown older her desperation to cling to her youth and to be seen as sexy meant that her movie choices became based on trying to show off how hot she was rather than choosing anything with substance. Her poor choices, not her fading youth, put the nail in her career while she was still in her 30s.

When she went off she went OFF. Her kids 911 calls, the dead man at her house, Ashton, her coolwhip or whatever you call that. Then she got that long MILF hair and MILF skinny. Showing up on the carpet with the younger set making her look even older. But when she was hot she was hot. Career and looks. I always thought her edge of abrasiveness was what gave her a lot of her appeal. For a brief time she exuded a lot of class and composure. Then it was fucking look out.

    Demi Moore was not a hit on GH. She was brought on to pair with Tony Geary after Genie Francis left. She couldn’t act to save her life, and they tried to force her on the audience with mega publicity. They ultimately shoved her onto Scorpio’s character (This was before Emma Samms/Holly was on the show.). Even though she sucked on GH, she did have a great look. I didn’t like her character, but I thought she was great looking. She was also married at the time, to this young rocker guy. While her character was in limbo, Demi booked a movie called “Blame it on Rio.” It starred Michael Caine, Joe Bologna, Valerie Harper, and a newcomer with huge tits named Michelle Johnson. The plot was that Demi was Joe Bologna’s daughter and went on a family vacation with him, her friend Michelle, and Michael Caine. Michelle and Michael Caine ended up hooking up, with Michelle’s gigantic boobs swinging in his face most of the movie. Demi came out of the film unscathed. It was before she had her boob job. As you can probably imagine, the movie was a bomb, and Demi looked all the better as the one person in the film who wasn’t trashy, and she didn’t carry the storyline. She also looked great.

    I think around this time she split with her husband and started dating Emilio Estevez. That’s what really got her into the “Young Hollywood” crowd and out of the soap world. I recall an interview with her at the time, and she was also extremely driven. Very meticulous about following through on all her voice messages (it was before mobile phones). She kind of had the professionalism and focus I read Jennifer Aniston had when Aniston started booking things.

    She was in St. Elmo’s Fire and a others as a fifth lead, but what put her over was Ghost and the pixie cut she had in Ghost. I don’t know how she booked that job.

    Somewhere, along with the boob job, she did something terrible to her teeth. Made them long and skinny. Her mouth was always one of the most distinctive things about her, but after she had her teeth done the teeth made her look extra thin lipped, and ruined the shape of her mouth, which had been kind of lopsided or curvy in a distinctive way. However bad an actress she is, believe me she’s Cate Blanchett compared to her time on General Hospital. I do remember when she was married to Bruce Willis, Bruce said in an interview that the way Hollywood worked, they were already looking for a “young Demi Moore.” That Demi didn’t believe it because she was younger than him, but he knew that HW was already looking for younger and fresher meat.

She became pretty domesticated there for a while during their marriage and I believe was mostly happy, at least until the end.

    I think she and Bruce did love each other; they married something like two months after the met and had a baby right away, and were married for more than a decade I think? Agree that the thing with Kutcher and their split screwed her up. She got too wrapped up in trying to stay younger than her age and that also hurt. Work opportunities of course slowed down but if she’d stayed reliable she would’ve still gotten parts.

    She made a ton of money at her peak too, she could have used that to move into producing her own projects. At one point she was the highest paid actress in Hollywood.

    [R73] She did successfully move into more adult roles. You might not have liked her 90s movies, but she got paid well for them.

    I think she made a mistake by emphasizing her body so much. She did that with G.I. Jane and Striptease. She was always talking about her workouts and dancing in a bikini on a talk show. It became kind of cheesy.

    Older women mocked her when she married Ashton [R78]. If they worshipped her it might have helped her career, but it didn’t. They thought she was ridiculous. I remember the women in my office discussing how delusional you’d have to be to think an attractive much younger man is still going to be around in a decade. Unless he’s painfully ugly no 34year old man is going to spring out of bed on his wife’s 50 birthday and not feel slightly embarrassed. They said that it might not be fair but it was true.

    And they were right, rumors of him cheating with college girls were rife before they split. And he’s since married Mila Kunis who is 20 years younger than Demi.

    Once she became a movie star post-Ghost she lost almost all vulnerability and her persona (which hardened along with her body interestingly enough) was all attitude and ambition. She was never much of an actress but in her Brat Pack years at least she exuded a softness that was at least somewhat relatable to women. By the early 90s she had lost all of that and was all about the publicity stunts and morphing her body into something sort of super human.

    Moore, Stone and Madonna often got lumped in together during this decade due to their overall “hardness” and naked ambition. But at least Stone proved herself to have talent (even if she’s totally cuckoo) – not to mention classically beautiful, which Moore never was.

    Honestly it’s a feat that Moore got as far as she did, had as long a run as she did, and even in her mid 50s, is still somewhat relevant (she’s certainly still a big name virtually everyone of all ages has heard of). And the friend who got disgusted with Moore’s ambition was Ally Sheedy not Cates.

    She admitted she got her voice to sound more raspy by spending hours screaming into pillows. I can’t remember where I once read that, but it was somewhere fairly reputable, like Vanity Fair.

    She wanted to be a star rather than an actress, but that only lasts so long for women, and when it was over, she panicked. Sheedy and Mare Winningham (the other two major women stars in St. Elmo’s Fire) really wanted to be actresses more than they wanted to be stars. Winningham still gets work; I’m not sure what happened to Sheedy. Not sure what happened to Judd Nelson and Emilio Estevez, either. Andrew McCarthy gets more work now as a travel writer than an actor.

    She was just a late eighties B Movie hottie who married the biggest and best-liked action film star of the nineties and leveraged her publicity to land some big roles. She stank in all of them. ‘Indecent Proposal’ was the one that made her a global star, Thierry Mugler designed the dress she wore in the big scenes.

    Well, she was 20 at the time so there’s that. Gotta start somewhere. I watched GH then and my first impression of her was “Where the hell did they find this one?” but I quickly started to like her for her make it happen fortitude. Jackie Templeton was this hot babe savvy newspaper reporter who seemed like she mainly just coasted on her looks and pluck I guess . IRL, she shared an apartment with Nastassja Kinski around this point in time which must have been interesting.

    I went to a Gen. Hospital fan event in early January ’83 in Chicago and Demi was there along with Stuart Damon, Tristian Rogers, and the lovely Sharon Wyatt. I’d say about 200 or more showed up and it was fun because the host of AM Chicago emceed the thing. I heard a murmur from some frau as we filed out saying that she noticed Demi was acting coked out but I couldn’t tell. My mom’s friend Nancy, a former neighbor friend came over that day and shlepped me and my family (I was 20 and still lived at home) downtown impromptu to see this GH promo event hosted by Rob Weller of AM Chicago at 5 pm on a Sunday. It was just like a TV show but wasn’t taped to air even though it would have made for a decent AM Chicago showing. Demi was cute. She didn’t talk much but seemed like she was trying to enjoy being there at least. She wore a turquoise miniskirt with a snug fitted white and turquoise striped top and white stockings and she jumped onto Stuart Damon wrapping her arms and legs around his bod at the end of the Q&A session which was kind of a kooky thing to do but so what.

    I used to read (subscribe to) Premiere Magazine in the 90s and I think an article said Demi was getting 20 mil a pic during mid 90s; Butcher’s Wife/Scarlet Letter era. I thought it outrageous but also felt that since male actors were commanding that price so why not her. She doesn’t need to work. Her production company financed the Austin Powers movies and a few other blockbusters. She’s been pretty rich for a long time. Not bad for some poor white trash gal from KY. I admire her. She was cute and amusing in that Wild Oats movie I thought.

    She’s really good in it, and its one of the few parts of the time you can’t picture any of her peers doing. Could Julia Roberts have pulled it off? Nicole Kidman? Jodie Foster? None of them had the toughness or the sheer physicality required.

    As twisted as she became later in life, there are some stories of her niceness. GH’s Nancy Lee Grahn says that she was also up for Jackie Templeton, had gotten the wrong sides or something, and Demi, who was also there reading, ran the lines with her and helped her prep. Couldn’t have been nicer.

    I think she was a real party girl AND probably a nice, accessible person early on, but then as soon as she got major celebrity her life became about being a celebrity, which always happens.

    I believe she reconciled with her mother before her mother died. Demi was one of three actresses with major stage mother issues – Meg Ryan and Jennifer Aniston being the other two. I think all three moms wrote books, and all three moms made money off their daughters in the trashiest ways they could think of. Jennifer Aniston did speak to her mother before she died, but I think it was still pretty strained, and I’ve read Meg Ryan never spoke to hers. What I read was Demi Moore reached out to her mother after her mother got cancer, and took care of her through the end. She said something about there comes a point where you are the adult and act like it. She also said she realized all her life her mother just wanted to be taken care of, and that’s what Moore did for her mother, that unconditional caretaking, with the roles reversed. I’ve read enough stories about her niceness in her early days to believe it has to be a real part of her.

    That old story about women having to choose between their face and their ass is wrong. No, if you are a super waif in your teens and twenties, you probably need ten pounds when you’re in your thirties. But a woman certainly doesn’t have to choose between the face and body. First of all, if you’re getting old, there’ s choice. Both face and body will age. But fat does nothing for a woman’s face but eliminate her bone structure and make her look bloated.

    Haven’t paid much attention to Moore’s career since the Willis marriage, but the other night I saw her in a small but affecting role in “Bobby,” where she gave a great performance as a cabaret torch singer whose act was out of touch with the late 1960s, even if she was trying not to be.

    Demi Moore was never really that good an actress. She was very driven and ambitious, her marriage to Freddy Moore helped her get started to a certain extent. Then she banged a series of photographers and agents, who got her exposure, magazine covers etc. Dating Emilio Estevez introduced her to the brat pack scene, that helped her get better film roles and more visibility. Marrying Bruce Willis was the next step, he was the new “hot” star back then. She was also either lucky or shrewd in the early projects she chose, as quite a few were very successful, and the ones that weren’t, she managed to walk away from.

    [R14] is right that back in the day, she showed some good instincts when choosing scripts. She sure picked a lot of hits. Ghost was not considered to be that much of a property even by the studio, then it became a huge hit. I remember an interview with Demi where she said she really believed in Ghost and thought it would be a good role for her. Obviously she was right.

    She had quite the string of hits in the 90s until Striptease flopped big time. GI Jane was considered a disappointment, too, at least financially. It wasn’t an outright flop but it didn’t do as well as expected either. She did get some good reviews for GI Jane, though. [R37] is right that when she came back after a hiatus, she seemed to lose her instinct for picking good scripts, although roles for women in their 40s or older are notoriously hard to come by.

    I remember her as Jackie Templeton on General Hospital. The producers did try to pair her character with Luke, but it was clear they had no chemistry, so they put her with Robert Scorpio. Not much chemistry there either. I remember, though, that there was something unique about her. She had a screen presence even back then. The girls in school would talk about how pretty she was, how she did her hair, her clothes, her make-up, etc., much more than the other actresses on the show. You noticed her. She stood out.

Robert Scorpio dumped her to marry Holly, who was pregnant with Luke’s baby but everyone thought Luke died in an avalanche or something like that. Holly was going to be deported, so Robert, who was no police commissioner, married Holly. Eventually, Holly and Robert fell in love. Jackie Templeton did everything she could to write stories portraying Robert as inept. Her character became so awful and vengeful, no one was sad to see her go.

If you take a look at a lot of her most successful movies, she was never the main focus of the film, any time she carried a project solo it bombed. Simply put, she wasn’t that good an actress.

And trading in Emilio Estevez (who was arguably, the unofficial “leader” of the Brat Pack) for Bruce Willis at the height of “Moonlighting’s” success and just before “Die Hard” took him to the next level, of course helped. And then, she was fortunate enough to land a huge blockbuster in “Ghost”.

      It’s difficult to propose a middle-aged actresses retirement without sounding pretty chauvinistic—especially in an age where interesting roles for older actresses are becoming more prevalent. That being said, there’s not really much in Demi Moore’s more recent filmography to suggest she’s headed for Big Little Lies territory.

      Despite her talent and taste for interesting roles in her early years, Moore’s output has been lackluster for quite a while now. An early retirement would have suited her reputation just fine, and it probably still would. Otherwise, she may just be resigned to play moms in tween dramas and villains in action B-movies for another 10 to 15 years. But hey, there’s always the possibility of a really subversive G.I. Jane 2, right?

      STRIPTEASE – DEMI MOORE

      Nominated for two Golden Globes, Demi Moore has had her fair share of box office hits and disasters through the years. She rose to fame with 1990’s Ghost, a paranormal love story starring opposite Patrick Swayze that was a hit with audiences and critics.

      She went on to star in the hits A Few Good Men and Indecent Proposal in the next few years, but things started going south when the actress took a role in the film Striptease in 1996.

      Although the book by author Carl Hiassen was extremely funny and full of satire, Striptease, a movie about a single stripper mother caught up in a murder plot, plays it too straight to come off as satirical. Instead, the movie comes off laughably bad, with one gratuitous topless dance scene on top a stripper pole after another.

      After Striptease, Moore was still able to get work in movies like G.I. Jane and Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle, but her career definitely took a hit that it never really recovered from.

  17. Remember That Moment When Jules Freaks Out in St. Elmo’s Fire?

    http://thatmomentin.com/2017/01/29/st-elmos-fire/

    That said, I want to talk about Jules. She’s played by Moore, and is arguably the real heart of the story. Jules works as an international banker but is having trouble letting go of her youthful escapes and as such, remains the group’s “party girl.” On top of that, she’s having an affair with her very married boss. At the bar where the friends all meet, St. Elmo’s Fire, she confesses this to Leslie (Sheedy), her best friend an aspiring architect, who expresses great disappointment and tries to dissuade Jules from the whole scene, including her lavish lifestyle of spending and partying. Further complicate things, later that night, Jules gives Billy (Lowe), the team’s man-child-type, who is a newly reluctant husband and father, a ride home, where, unsurprisingly, he makes a pass at her. This only infuriates her and she kicks him out of the car. But it’s about to get worse for poor Jules.

    Eventually, she runs out of control. First, she gets axed from her job and is so far in debt, she loses all of her possessions, seized by creditors. The affair over as well, humiliated by her choices and overwhelmed with the sudden collapse, she has a significant turning point. Numb and crashing hard, she strips down to only a loose t-shirt, locks the door to her apartment, opens the windows of her spacious apartment and sits on the floor, inviting the winter freeze to embrace and kill her. Talk about a slow doom.

    As her friends arrive and unable to get inside, other issues between them create problems as they work to try and save Jules, namely Alec’s (Judd Nelson) attempted murder of his best friend Kevin (Andrew McCarthy) over the railing of a fire escape outside Jules’ window. Why is Alec trying to leave Kevin a pile of mush on the pavement below? Hey, watch the movie. This isn’t Wikipedia. I’m talking about Jules right now. Either way, the whole gang shows up, and it’s finally Billy that busts his way in, and we come to the best part.

    I won’t spoil what happens, but when you do watch it, and watch it you will, pay attention to this sequence because it’s some of the best work both Moore and Lowe have done, and serve as a rehearsal of sorts for their next film, About Last Night, in which they play a couple in and out of love. Moore is especially convincing here and their seriously compelling dynamic is obvious, with Lowe at the peak of his charm-boy status and Moore going against type and portraying some truly painful vulnerabilities. While the film itself is tonally all over the place and the direction lacks any real momentum, it’s the characters that keep St. Elmo’s Fire burning, and Jule’s freakout is the very best in the show. Go back in time and catch some fire.

  18. Episode 198 – The Juror

    http://www.whmpodcast.com/2015/04/episode-198-juror.html

    On this week’s episode, the gang goes to court with Demi Moore and Alec Baldwin in the ridiculous legal thriller, The Juror! Why does Alec Baldwin’s mafia fixer character have a Jackal-esque nickname? Could Anne Heche be a bigger Dead Meat side character? And what is with all the box puns? PLUS: That. Dragon. Video game.

    The Juror stars Demi Moore, Alec Baldwin, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Anne Heche, Tony Lo Bianco, Lindsay Crouse, Michael Rispoli and the legendary James Gandolfini; directed by Brian Gibson.

    • Anne Heche’s small role in The Juror was useless and disgusting. I’m surprised Demi didn’t insist the part be written out. That scene where Heche’s character is murdered in bed was so unsavory it ruined an otherwise decent film.

      Tom Cruise, VERY A.D.D. and jumpy and talkative, and Ashton Kutcher, a nice guy, kinda quiet believe it or not, were both CAA clients when I left 2 years ago, not sure if they still are.

      Demi Moore wasn’t but she had a couple of meetings with CAA during and oddly enough AFTER her breakup with Kutcher, Kutcher pushed her to sign with CAA to no avail when they were together and then she kept on scheduling meetings and NEVER SIGNING with CAA. Time after time. A VERY strange woman and sometimes not the nicest person. OK MOST of the time.

      Basically she’d come into these meetings and make demands and treat people like crap and TALK nonstop and never sign because SOMETHING would always come up.

      Boy does she love to hear herself talk…

  20. The real reason we don’t hear from Demi Moore anymore

    http://www.nickiswift.com/51376/real-reason-dont-hear-demi-moore-anymore/

    After a difficult childhood marred by cases of alcoholism and suicide in the family, Demi Moore left behind her life in a New Mexico trailer park in pursuit of the bright lights of Tinsel Town. Three decades and three husbands later, Moore’s name is known the world over, but her face is rarely seen anymore. So what happened?

    She became a teen icon in the ’80s, and by the ’90s was the most sought after woman in Hollywood, though a series of unfortunate career moves and personal dramas in the years that followed sent her into a downward spiral. Here’s why we don’t hear from her anymore.

Anyway, our actress is mum on her love life because she is dating one of the exes of her kids who wasn’t really an ex when they started hooking up. Not the first or third time mom has done this.

      • Some issues with that video-

        Very imbalanced. Too much negativity and not enough focus on her accomplishments as an actress. Her crying scenes in About Last Night, Ghost and If These Walls Could Talk were Oscar worthy.

        Shows TERRIBLE photos. Admittedly, she hasn’t been looking great lately, but are people already forgetting how great she looked in her 40s? Or late 30s? It wasn’t that long ago.

        Nearly all the comments reference that GH cast party footage or the bush layout, from when she was literally a teenager, that were dug up and made viral decades after the fact. (She really needs to hire an image consultant to fix her internet presence, because it’s garbage.)

    In 1998, Bruce Willis and Demi Moore’s divorce was the break-up event of Hollywood. Despite living a lavish lifestyle thanks to their superstar careers and putting on the facade of a happy family hidden away in Idaho, behind the scenes, the couple had been slowly buckling from the strain of filming Hollywood blockbusters and, if rumors are to be believed, infidelities on both sides of the fence. By the end, their marriage had become a recipe for disaster.

    Demi Moore bares her thoughts on Striptease

    After starring in a string of hits including Ghost and Indecent Proposal, Demi Moore scored a $12.5 million salary to appear in Striptease, which in 1996, made her the highest paid actress in Hollywood history. However, things immediately went south when Striptease bombed at the box-office and was destroyed by critics. “Who told Demi Moore she can act? She can’t. End of discussion,” wrote the Washington Post. “Moore’s body is in better shape than her acting,” said USA Today. “Striptease has the inert, cruddy-looking ambiance of a straight-to-tape thriller,” added Entertainment Weekly.

    With reviews like that, it’s no wonder that Striptease rests on Rotten Tomatoes with a low 12 percent and is considered by many as the death of Moore’s career. However, if you ask Moore, she believes she was targeted because of her paycheck instead of the questionable quality of the film. While looking back at Striptease and G.I. Jane, she told The Guardian, “I took a lot of criticism, a lot of heat, got hit really hard for both of these films, I think because there was a lot of money attached to it.”

    G.I. Jane, which arrived in theaters barely a year after Striptease, also failed at the box office to the point where the studio remarked to Newsweek, “People just don’t want to see her. We would have to drag them kicking and screaming to see this movie.” Was that because of Moore’s salary, too? We’re not so sure.

    The one-time Hollywood power couple also kept things friendly after they divorced in 2000 and moved onto new partners. In Moore’s case, she picked up with 16-years-younger actor Ashton Kutcher, who was her husband for eight years. As if to show their bonus family solidarity, Moore, Kutcher and Willis often turned up together at red carpet events, with all three girls in tow, everyone looking happy and accepting. Still, it can’t have been easy for the Willis girls growing up in the fish bowl of Hollywood celebrity, even if they had money and privilege. That lifestyle apparently took its toll on the sisters as all three have gone public in the past 10 days with their various battles with obsessive,

Comes close to being a great movie but there was 1 vulgar line that really stood out to me. If the box office were better it might have a chance at getting nominated for Golden Globes.

  28. Who Was The Worst Charlie’s Angels Replacement Actress?

    https://www.datalounge.com/thread/19354681-who-was-the-worst-charlie-s-angels-replacement-actress-

    Bringing it back to OP’s question: I actually think Demi Moore’s angel was rather weak. I am OK with the idea of an angel going rogue. But she just wasn’t right for it in my opinion. Maybe it was the writing that turned me off. Madison had a lot of anger that wasn’t plausible to me. And in a way she did way too much “mustache twirling”. For that I guess I can blame the director.
