Of distant Cherokee ancestry, the real name of Demi Moore is Demetria Gene Guynes. She was born on 11 novembre 1962 in Roswell. Among her best known interpretations can remember Ghost (1990), A Few Good Men (1992), Indecent Proposal (1993), Revelations (1994) and GI Jane (1997). Moore is also known for the past marriage with another Hollywood superstar Bruce Willis, with whom she was founder of the renowned local international chain Planet Hollywood.
Demi Moore was born in a difficult family situation: her father Charles Harmon abandoned her mother, Virginia, shortly before she was born, forcing her to include the surname of her stepfather, Danny Guynes, instead of the father. Guynes frequently changed jobs, which forced her to move as many as 40 times in her childhood: in one of these frequent trips, Moore lost some vision in her left eye and was forced to wear a special contact lens.
She spent most of her childhood and adolescence in the suburbs of Pittsburgh. The parents have since become alcoholics, and in a moment of madness her father committed suicide by inhaling carbon monoxide from the exhaust pipe of his car.
Nastassja Kinski, her childhood friend, persuaded Moore to sign up to Fairfax High School in Hollywood, an institute where she studied acting. At sixteen she became an actress in all respects and in the early eighties she began working in television in the series General Hospital. However, she continued to have an unstable and difficult character.
At 18 she married musician Freddy Moore, from whom she divorced in 1985, keeping its name to business purposes. From 1987 to 2000 she was married to actor Bruce Willis, with whom she had three daughters: Rumer (1988), Scout LaRue (1991) and Tallulah Belle (1994). In September 2005 she married actor Ashton Kutcher, 16 years younger. After the announced separation in November 2011, the couple divorced in 2013. She also had a relationship with actor Emilio Estevez.
After overcoming the crisis, she later remarked in film roles more and more significant way in No Small Affair (1984) by Jerry Schatzberg, St. Elmo’s Fire (1985) by Joel Schumacher, About Last Night … (1986) by Edward Zwick, We’re No angels (1989) by Neil Jordan, and finally emerging as a romantic star in Ghost by Jerry Zucker.
In 1991, during her second pregnancy, she put naked for Vanity Fair magazine. Nicknamed Gimme Moore (pun on gimme more, “give me more”) due to the money requests that placed before attending a movie, had a significant part in Rob Reiner’s A Few Good Men. From then on there was a turning point in her film: it began to accept sexy and very erotic roles that made her even earn a new nickname, Demi goddess ( “semi-Goddess”). Particularly successful were Indecent Proposal (1993) directed by Adrian Lyne; Revelations (1994) by Barry Levinson, the film that caused a sensation for some explicit sex scenes with Moore protagonist, and Striptease (1996) by Andrew Bergman, a film for which the US diva got $ 12 million. In 1995 she plays also in The Scarlet Letter by Roland Joffé.
In 1996 and 1997 won the Razzie Awards as worst actress of the year for The Juror, Striptease and GI Jane, and always in the 1996 Razzie Awards for the worst pair of Burt Reynolds company for Striptease, in 2003 as worst supporting actress for Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle.
