Demi Moore (born Demetria Guynes on November 11, 1962 in Roswell, New Mexico) is an American actress with a trademark husky voice. She is of mixed ancestry including French, Welsh, and Cherokee (Native American) heritage.
When she was 16, Moore's then-friend, Nastassja Kinski, persuaded her to drop out of Hollywood's Fairfax High School to become an actress. After quitting school, Moore went to work as a pin-up girl, modelled in Europe, and worked at a collection agency. In 1980 Moore married rock musician Freddy Moore, whose last name she adopted; the marriage lasted only 4 years.
Moore's big break came when she played the part of Jackie Templeton on the ABC soap opera, General Hospital, a role she played from 1982 to 1983. Moore spent her General Hospital salaries on parties and drug abuse. Her cocaine habit lasted more than three years until 1985, when director Joel Schumacher fired her from the set of St. Elmo's Fire when she arrived on the set intoxicated. She received withdrawal treatment and returned clean after a week and stayed clean.
In the 1980s, she appeared in several youth oriented films, and was listed among the "Brat Pack." She was engaged to fellow Brat-Packer Emilio Estevez for three years. In November, 1987, Moore married actor Bruce Willis, after a highly publicized whirlwind romance. They had three daughters together, Rumer Glenn, Scout LaRue, and Tallulah Belle, but divorced in 1998. Moore and Kutcher were married on September 24, 2005.
In the early 1980s she posed for a series of soft-core photographs featuring full frontal nudity. In August, 1991, Moore appeared nude on the cover of Vanity Fair magazine while seven-months pregnant. Moore again appeared on the cover of Vanity Fair in August 1992, wearing only a body painted "suit".
For a time during the 1990s, Moore was the highest paid actress in Hollywood. Coming off of the heels of a string of box office hits such as Ghost, A Few Good Men, and Indecent Proposal she was the first actress to reach the USD$10 million mark for salary. After a break from her acting career, Moore returned to the screen as a former member of Charlie's Angels in the film Charlie's Angels 2: Full Throttle.
