Demi Guynes Kutcher , known professionally as Demi Moore, is an American actress.

After minor roles in film and a role in the soap opera General Hospital, Moore established her career in films such as St. Elmo's Fire , and in the early 1990s, became one of the highest paid actresses in Hollywood with her successes in Ghost , A Few Good Men , Indecent Proposal , and Disclosure .

  Biography  

 early life
Moore was born in Roswell, New Mexico. As a child, she had a difficult and unstable home life. Her biological father, Charles Harmon, left her mother, Virginia King (November 27, 1943 – July 2, 1998), after a two-month marriage, before Moore was born. As a result, Moore had the surname of her stepfather, Danny Guynes (March 9, 1943 – October 1980 by suicide), on her birth certificate. Danny Guynes frequently changed jobs; as a result, the family moved a total of forty times. Moore has two younger half-brothers: James Craig Harmon and Morgan Guynes . Although disputed by Moore, many sources give her birth name as Demetria or Demitria. Her parents were alcoholics who often fought and beat each other. Moore was cross-eyed as a child and wore an eye patch in an attempt to correct the problem until it was ultimately corrected by two surgeries. She also suffered from kidney dysfunction.

Moore's family settled in Los Angeles in 1976. She attended Fairfax High School in Hollywood, where her schoolmates included Red Hot Chili Peppers frontman Anthony Kiedis, bassist Michael Balzary and actor Timothy Hutton. When Moore was 16, her friend Nastassja Kinski persuaded her to drop out of school to become an actress.

 career
After training with John Casablancas, the founder of Elite Model Management and posing as a cover model for Oui magazine, Moore made her film debut with a small supporting role in the 1981 deaf-teen drama Choices, directed by Silvio Narizzano. She joined the ensemble of the 1982 3-D science fiction/horror film Parasite after director Charles Band instructed casting director Johanna Ray to "find me the next Karen Allen." However, Moore was not widely known until she played the part of Jackie Templeton on the ABC soap opera General Hospital from 1982 to 1983.

In the mid-1980s, Moore appeared in the youth-oriented films St. Elmo's Fire, Blame It on Rio and About Last Night..., and she was often listed as one of the Brat Pack, a name the media dubbed a certain group of top young actors at the time. In 1988, she starred in The Seventh Sign directed by Carl Schultz. After the commercial success of Ghost, Moore was given more prominent roles in A Few Good Men, Indecent Proposal, Disclosure, and The Hunchback of Notre Dame for which she was the first actress to reach the $10 million salary mark.

During the early 1990s, she was the highest paid actress in Hollywood. She never surpassed the success of Ghost, and had a string of less successful films like Nothing but Trouble, The Scarlet Letter, The Juror, Striptease, and G.I. Jane. Moore's Passion of Mind co-star Joss Ackland lambasted her by describing her as being "not very bright or talented", although he worked with her again on Flawless in 2008. At the same time, she produced and starred in a TV miniseries called If These Walls Could Talk, written by Nancy Savoca. A three-part series on abortion, Savoca directed two segments, including the one in which Moore played a single woman in the 1950s seeking a back-alley abortion. She was nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Actress for that role.

Moore was a founding "celebrity investor" in the Planet Hollywood chain of international theme restaurants along with Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and then-husband Bruce Willis.

After a break from her acting career, Moore returned to the screen as the villain of the 2003 film Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle. In 2006, she appeared in Bobby which featured an all-star cast, including her husband Ashton Kutcher, although they did not appear in any scenes together. She later starred in the thriller film Mr. Brooks, which was released on June 1, 2007. She appeared in Jon Bon Jovi's longform video "Destination Anywhere" as Janie.

In 2006, Moore became the new face for the Helena Rubinstein brand of cosmetics.

 personal life
 Marriages and children

In 1980, at the age of 18, she married singer Freddy Moore, adopting his surname. The marriage ended in 1984.

In 1987, Moore met and married her second husband, actor Bruce Willis. They had three daughters together: Rumer Glenn Willis , Scout LaRue Willis , and Tallulah Belle Willis . Moore and Willis divorced in 2000.

After two years of dating, Moore wed actor Ashton Kutcher on September 24, 2005. On November 17, 2011, Moore released a statement announcing her intention to divorce Kutcher. The announcement followed weeks of media speculation about the state of the couple's marriage due to his alleged cheating.

  Charity work

In April 2011, Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher launched their "Demi and Ashton Foundation", a non-profit, non-governmental organization directed towards fighting child sexual slavery. Its first campaign was "Real Men Don't Buy Girls".

 Interests

Moore's primary residence is in Hailey, Idaho, near the Sun Valley resort, although she spent much time in the Los Angeles area during her marriage to Kutcher. She also owns a waterfront mansion on Sebago Lake, Maine. She is a practicing follower of Philip Berg's Kabbalah Centre religion, and initiated Kutcher into the faith, having said that she "didn't grow up Jewish, but ... would say that friends that did". Contrary to popular belief, Moore claims she has never been a raw foodist and dispelled the vegan rumors by eating a hamburger in a recent Mario Testino photo shoot.

According to The New York Times, Moore is "the world's most high-profile doll collector", and among her favorites is the Gene Marshall fashion doll.
