Demi Moore is a true Hollywood gem. The critically acclaimed rose to fame in the 1980s. In 1981, Moore made her acting debut as "Corri" in "Choices." Following her film debut, Moore landed a recruiting role in the soap opera "General Hospital." Moore began building her movie career in 1984 when she starred in "Blame It On Rio" where she played "Nicole (Nikki) Hollis."
According to Biography.com, Moore's breakout role came in 1985, when she portrayed "Jules" in "St. Elmo's Fire." Moore became a core member of the "Brat Pack." According to Insider, the term "Brat Pack" was coined by New York Magazine journalist David Blum to describe Hollywood's rising young movie stars. The Brat Pack consisted of Emilio Estevez, Anthony Michael Hall, Rob Lowe, Andrew McCarthy, Judd Nelson, Molly Ringwald and Ally Sheedy.
Moore made her leading lady debut in "Ghost," where she starred alongside Patrick Swayze. Her performance earned her a Golden Globe nomination. Goldberg ranked "Ghost" as one of Moore's most outstanding performances, while her roles in "A Few Good Men" and "About Last Night" were ranked second and third.
In 2019, the "G.I. Jane" actress released a memoir titled "Inside Out." The book is a detailed narrative of the unique elements of Moore's life, some of which played out in the public eye, such as her multiple marriages to famed Hollywood actors Bruce Willis and Ashton Kutcher.
She also described her childhood and battle with substance abuse, which almost destroyed her career and tore apart her family. Moore battled with many things during her years in the spotlight, but now with the release of her recent memoir Moore is self-reflecting and becoming more vulnerable than ever before.
The year 1987 is when Moore and Willis' former love story began. According to Us Weekly, the pair tied the knot in November that year after previously meeting at the premiere of the film "Stakeout" just a few months earlier. Afterward, they started a beautiful family together and welcomed three daughters into the world: Rumer, born in 1988, Scout, born in 1991 and Tallulah, born in 1994.
While Moore and Willis appeared happy in the public eye, there were some complications behind the scenes. They shocked the world in June 1998 when they announced their separation and filed for divorce two years later. According to Us Weekly, their divorce was finalized the same day they submitted their paperwork in October 2000.
However, Willis admitted that he didn't know why their marriage failed. He said:
"I still love Demi. We're very close. We have three children whom we will continue to raise together, and we're probably as close now as we ever were. We realize we have a lifelong commitment to our kids. Our friendship continues. The institution has been set aside… It's difficult to live your life and marriage under a magnifying glass, which is what happens to movie star couples."
Moore later opened up about the issues within her marriage to Willis in her memoir "Inside Out." As per Showbiz CheatSheet, she wrote, "We had a whirlwind, truncated infatuation that morphed into a full-on family, all in our very first year. When reality set in, I don't know if we really knew each other."
Despite their problems within their romantic relationship, Moore and Willis have shown that they work well together in other aspects and have been there for each other during difficult times.
Years later, the former couple proved that even though they weren't great romantic partners, they were great co-parenting partners. In 2019, Moore said, "It's a funny thing to say, but I'm very proud of our divorce." She added, "I think that we did a magnificent job of making sure that our children knew they were loved."
Over the years, Moore and Willis each engaged in other relationships. Moore was married to Kutcher for eight years, and he became a step-father to her three children. Moore became pregnant at 42 but lost the baby six months into the pregnancy. At the time, she felt "lost, empty, desperate – confused," and Moore and Kutcher's relationship later ended.
Willis also remarried once and is still married to Emma Heming. The two have since welcomed two daughters of their own. Fortunately, this blended family seems to get along extremely well. Back in March 2021, Moore celebrated International Women's Day by uploading a picture of Heming to her Instagram with a heartfelt caption.
"I #SeeHer as family who I am honored to call a friend. Our children are sisters and yet there is no name for what our family connection is to one another. We are mothers united, sisters bonded on this crazy adventure of life." Moore also called her "an absolutely gorgeous woman" and "absolutely inspiring."
Today, Moore and Willis are still great friends and have proven that it's possible to remain on good terms with your ex. Moore even surprised the action star at the "Comedy Central Roast of Bruce Willis," making fun of his bald head and career path but ultimately praising his fathering skills. In addition, Moore and Willis have successfully blended their families, proving that while they weren't inspiring as lovers, they are inspiring as parents.Demi Moore (circa 1990), (Paramount Pictures/Getty Images)
In an interview with The Talk, Rumer Willis, Moore's eldest daughter with Bruce Willis, praised her mother for her book.
"I think so many women have watched her, and just as her daughter, I've watched her, as this beacon of strength and this kind of leader," Willis said. "What I really respect about her is that she is never the victim in her stories. She takes accountability. She takes responsibility, and mind you, this is her perspective, her story, and she's the first one to say that."
By relieving some of the hardest moments of her life, Moore was able to self-reflect and rediscover who she is.
In the interview with New York Times, Moore blamed her mid-career slump on Hollywood's view of equal pay. In 1996, the award-winning actress made headlines when it was revealed that she made $12.5million for her starring in the film "Striptease." According to Landscape Insight, Moore became the highest-paid actress in film history at the time.
Gwyneth Paltrow praised Moore for her success and how it changed Hollywood.
"She became a movie star in this time where women didn't naturally fit into the system," Paltrow told the outlet. "She was really the first person who fought for pay equality and got it and really suffered a backlash from it. We all certainly benefited from her."
Although many view Moore as a trailblazer for women's rights, the actress believed it put a target on her back. She told the outlet it "was an honor, and with that came a lot of negativity and a lot of judgment towards me, which I'm happy to have held if it made a difference."

On top of being a person with beautiful intentions, Moore is also an extremely beautiful woman. However, her looks have changed a bit over the years, leaving fans to wonder if the actress has ever had any work done.
Speaking with The Guardian back in 2007, Moore addressed the rumors that she'd spent $3 million on plastic surgery to get the body that she has. She told the news outlet:
"It's irritating. And it isn't true. To fight it feels futile because I feel it perpetuates the myth. But really, the culmination for me was when there were multiple reports I had my knees done. When I read that, I thought: wow, should I have been worried about my knees?"
"It's not just my knees. They say I've had multiple face surgeries. I was in getting a facial recently and there were reports that I'd been in there for countless hours, saying I'd had surgical procedures. Am I going to sue? Do I really care?"
A few years later, in 2010, Moore admitted to getting some work done, but it wasn't on her face. Instead, she told British Elle, as reported by the Daily Mail:
"I have had something done but it's not on my face. You know what? Maybe one day I'll go under the knife. It just irritates me that people are constantly saying how much I've spent on plastic surgery."
She went on to liken the constant accusations of plastic surgery to "school-yard name-calling." Certainly, it's difficult to be a successful woman, let alone one that's often judged by her looks, but it seems that Moore gets more than her share of accusations from the press and fans alike. Unfortunately, the criticism didn't let up for some time.Demi Moore (2013), (Donato Sardella/Getty Images for Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts)
After walking the runway at the Fendi show in 2021, Moore was thrilled with the experience and even spoke about it with iconic supermodel Naomi Campbell, who also walked in the same show. She told Campbell during an episode of her "No Filter with Naomi" YouTube series:
"It really was a teenage fantasy fulfilled. I took a moment and I thought, 'Oh my God, I just walked a runway show with some of the biggest models ever.' I literally felt like a little kid."
Moore added that "it was very powerful" and that it felt "special" to her, not necessarily about all the clothes, but rather "the full story." She stated:
"It felt very magical and moving. It was extremely memorable."
But her appearance on the runway got fans talking about how different her face was and that she didn't look like herself at all. As reported by In Touch Weekly, one user on Twitter wrote:
"Have you seen Demi Moore has had more plastic surgery?"
Another stated how unrealistic it looked, writing, "It doesn't look natural at all." Meanwhile, a third simply asked why she did it in the first place, commenting, "Why, Demi, why?"
Although the public loves to speculate, Moore hasn't commented on whether she's had anything done. However, a plastic surgeon Dr. Corey L. Hartman told the Daily Mail that while he believes some of the changes can be attributed to lighting and makeup, he thinks Moore may have had some work done. He speculated that the actress-turned-model underwent removal of her buccal fat pads, which might have left any dermal filler in her face to take on an augmented appearance.Rumer Willis, Demi Moore (2020), (David Crotty/Patrick McMullan via Getty Images)
Nowadays, fans are eager to learn more about Moore and her beauty routine. Along with her vulnerable memoir, Moore has used her social media and platform to show her fans her day-to-day life, from sharing sweet family photos to makeup-free selfies.
Fans have become obsessed with Moore's natural beauty and are begging for her skincare routine.
For Moore, beauty is more than just skin deep. While speaking on a panel for Gwyneth Paltrow's Goop, the "Brave New World" actress sat down with W magazine and explained that her beauty secret is healthy eating.
"Look, I don't have any super big secret," she says. "But I definitely think beauty starts on the inside. You can do anything you want to the outside, but if the inside isn't looking or feeling good, then I don't know if anything you do on the outside is going to be good enough." One of the ways Moore keeps her body is by abstaining from drinking alcohol.
Moore pairs her clean diet with a great facialist to keep her youthful appearance. "The Hunchback of Notre Dame" actress referred to her treatments with the L.A.-based facialist and energy healer Terri Lawton as a "whole mind-body experience."
"I also really respect her opinion on products," Moore said. "because I know it's very aligned with my view that they have to be active, but really clean."
Moore encourages fans to keep their skin care regimen simple and easy but effective. Another piece of advice she received from her mother is to keep her skin moisturized. In a video for Harper's Bazaar, Moore explained how skincare was enforced by my mother at an early age.
"My mother always drilled in me no matter what that you should wash, cleanse and moisturize your skin," she said.Demi Moore (2022), (Pascal Le Segretain/Getty Images)
