11 November 1962
Roswell, New Mexico
Demi Moore was born in New Mexico to teenage parents. An itinerant life-style left Demi
with a chameleon-like personality as she attempted to adjust to growing up surrounded by
alcoholism, abuse, two divorces, some 48 different towns before she was 13 and ultimately
her father's suicide a month before her eighteenth birthday.
Not surprisingly, at 15 she decided to become an actress and soon after, she quit school,
moved out of home and supported herself with modeling jobs, including a stint as Qui magazine's
covergirl. By 19 she had turned her modeling and commercial work into fleeting appearances in
such B-movies as "Choices" and "Parasites". She married the first time at 20, to musician
Freddie Moore. The marriage lasted a year and a half.
Demi's big break came in 1982 when she landed a role on the soap opera "General Hospital". This
was followed by the feature film "Blame It On Rio" starring opposite Michael Caine. But the
hit "St. Elmo's Fire" helped to move her several rungs up the Hollywood ladder and one step
closer to her other ambition...producing. But it wasn't until starring in the supernatural
romantic thriller, "Ghost" that the 5' 5", hazel eyed beauty finally realized her goal. She went on to produce
"Mortal Thoughts", "The Butcher's Wife", and the highly successful, "Austin Powers" franchise.
Publicity also seems to follow Demi around. From her controversial cover on the Vanity Fair
magazine when a very pregnant Demi posed nude, to her breaking the wage record for an actress
when she received a reported 12 million dollars for her role in "Striptease"; something unheard
of at the time.
For a time Demi was engaged to Emilio Estevez, though they never married. It was while at a
screening of the movie "Stakeout" that she met Bruce Willis. Four months later they were
married and 10 years after that they announced their plans to divorce. Together they have had
three daugthers, Rumer, Scout and Tallulah.
