More is definitely Moore with Demi Moore. This age-defying beauty is in a class all by herself. She is recognized for creating trends and pushing the boundaries, then toppling them over and starting anew.
Known for her husky voice and dark raven hair, Demi Moore has been the stuff of dreams for men of all ages.
While married to her then husband, actor Bruce Willis, Moore single-handedly redefined a woman’s feeling of “sexiness” during pregnancy with her August 1991 Vanity Fair magazine cover where she was captured naked by acclaimed photographer Annie Leibovitz when she was 7 months pregnant. Looking beautifully radiant, healthy and even sexy, Moore helped women around the world view their pregnancy physiques differently and more positively.
Moore’s professional life has been transformational as well. From her initial role on ABC’s “General Hospital” to her breakout role in St. Elmo’s Fire in 1985, Moore’s career morphed into roles in blockbusters like Blame It on Rio and About Last Night, Ghost, Indecent Proposal, A Few Good Men and Disclosure to name a few. Always moving to the beat of her own drum, Demi pressed pause on her soaring movie career and chose to move to Idaho to raise her family with Bruce Willis. Not down for long, Moore made a triumphant return to the big screen in with her role in the 2003 Charlie’s Angels 2: Full Throttle.
Outside of her film interests, Moore’s savvy business acumen led her to become a founding celebrity partner in the popular Planet Hollywood chain restaurants. Star-studded openings and pop culture appeal made for a winning combination as the chain grew and prospered around the world.
Demi Moore and Bruce Willis divorced in 2000, after 13 years of marriage, becoming role models for how to handle the unfortunate circumstances of divorce maturely, responsibly, with love and self-respect. The pair went on to live next door to each other and successfully integrated new love interests into the family fold. Perhaps one of her most talked about moves was her decision to date a budding fellow actor by the name of Ashton Kutcher – the shocking part being the 15 year age gap between the two, giving Demi the title of the ultimate cougar. Proving more than just a midlife crisis, Demi and Ashton wed in 2005 in a private Kabbalah wedding. Unfortunately, perhaps because of the strain of the spotlight, or the temptation of greener pastures, Demi and Ashton announced that they were splitting up in November of 2011 after 6 years of marriage.
Feeling the consuming responsibilities of “fame,” Demi Moore sought refuge in Kabbalah, where she is able to fulfill her spirituality, connect with the larger universe and focus her humanitarian efforts. She has put her teachings to good use with her involvement in many charitable organizations such as American Foundation for AIDS Research, Artists for Peace and Justice, Coalition to Abolish Slavery and Trafficking, Healthy Child Healthy World. Her connection with her faith also led to her deep connection with Israel, which became a “go-to” retreat for she and Ashton when they felt the need to relax and center themselves, gain perspective and find focus.
A very rare combination of every man’s fantasy and every woman’s dream, Demi’s appeal is widespread. She is the down to earth girl next door all glammed up. But more importantly, Demi Moore is a fighter, and proof that longevity in Hollywood can coexist comfortably with a strong family life and a commitment to leaving the world a better place. Demi, you are a Diva We Love.
