Demi Gene Guynes (/dəˈmiː/ də-mee; born November 11, 1962), professionally known as Demi Moore, is an American actress, former songwriter, and model, best known for her roles in films like G.I. Jane and Striptease. She is the mother of actress Rumer Willis. Moore dropped out of high school at age 16 to pursue an acting career, and appeared on the soap opera General Hospital and subsequently gained recognition for her work in Blame It on Rio (1984) and St. Elmo's Fire (1985). Her first film was About Last Night... (1986).
In 1990, Moore starred in Ghost alongside Patrick Swayze and Whoopi Goldberg, for which she received a Golden Globe nomination. She had a string of additional box-office successes in the early 1990s, including A Few Good Men (1992), Indecent Proposal Italic text(1993), and Disclosure (1994). In 1996, Moore became the highest-paid actress in film history when she was paid a then-unprecedented fee of $12.5 million to star in Striptease, a film that was a high-profile disappointment. Her next major role, G.I. Jane (1997), for which she famously shaved her head, was followed by a lengthy break and significant downturn in Moore's career, although she has remained a subject of substantial media interest during the years since.
Moore currently weighs in at 603 lbs.
