See how Demi Moore has changed over time
Demi Moore overshadowed everyone at the London Fashion Awards Gala, the event where the most influential creatives are honored every year.
At age 59, the actress is still one of the most beautiful faces in Hollywood, though her appearance shows some signs of life's transformations.
She no longer looks like the young woman who achieved worldwide fame with 'Ghost,' back in 1990. Let's see how Demi Moore has changed over time and which challenges the celebrity actress had to face in her life.
The actress has had a long career in the spotlights of Hollywood. From early dramas like 'No Small Affair' (1984, on this picture) to 'Songbird' in 2020, she's been known for her fabulous looks and her husky voice. Behind the success, though, she lived through several hardships.
Yes, the girl with the glasses in the picture is Demi Moore. The appearance of the famous protagonist of blockbusters like 'Ghost' and 'Indecent Proposal' has changed (a lot) over the years.
Demetria Gene Guynes was born in 1962 in New Mexico and her childhood was a tragic one. As she revealed in her book 'Inside Out', her mother had a drinking problem and forced her at age 15 to go to bed with a stranger in exchange for $500.
Her biological father abandoned the family, and then her stepfather took his own life when she was a child. All of these elements forged a fragile and unstable woman who, in the 1990s, would become Hollywood's best paid actress.
Demi Moore managed to come out of her complicated situation and began to make her way in the difficult world or acting when she was 16. She also took modelling jobs, even in magazines like 'Oui' or 'Penthouse.' She used the pseudonym of Vivianne Pollentier.
At the beginning of the '80s, she participated in films such as 'Choices', 'Parasite' and 'No Small Affair' before getting her first big role with the TV series 'General Hospital' (ABC). There, she played the character of Jackie Templeton, a young reporter who appeared in dozens of episodes.
Demi Guynes changed her name to Demi Moore when she married Freddy Moore in 1980. They would split up in 1985. In the meantime, she continued to make a name for herself in the world of acting. Moore followed the style of the '80s and '90s: shoulder pads, denim suits, and big hair.
But what was the big role that got Demi Moore's name written in gold letters in Hollywood?
'Ghost' was Hollywood's highest ranking blockbuster film in 1990, earning Demi a Golden Globe nomination. In this love story, with Patrick Swayze and Whoopi Goldberg, Demi Moore appeared stupendous with her short hair.
Then came 'The Butcher's Wife', in which Moore radically changed her look to blond.
Or the successful 'Indecent Proposal' in which she returned to her dark hair and became the queen of the cinema box office.
In November 1987, she married actor Bruce Willis. He would be the father of her three daughters: Rummer, Scout LaRue, and Tallulah Belle.
One of the most famous marriages of the 1990s, it ended in 2000. Over the course of the '90s, Demi Moore's star was beginning to fade in the cinemas.
Still, she had some interesting roles up her sleeves. What about 'G.I. Jane' ('Lieutenant O'Neil'), a role for which she shaved her hair? It was one of the few professional joys for Moore at the end of the '90s.
Apparently, as she herself revealed in the book 'Inside Out', Moore was not happy. Her addictions and personal problems made her life a living hell.
She appeared to recover in 2003 when she began a relationship with the actor Ashton Kutcher. They got married and lived together until 2011.
According to Demi Moore in her book 'Inside Out', the actor cheated on her. For that reason, they broke up.
In those years, Demi Moore had one of her worst life experiences. "When I split up in 2011," she says in Inside Out, "I started to fall apart. I didn't have a career or a love affair; it all started to become blurry."
According to her book, she became pregnant with a child from Ashton Kutcher and lost her baby when she was six months pregnant. She blamed herself because she had started to drink again during her pregnancy.
Demi Moore promised to change her habits but overdosed in 2012. "It was like seeing myself from the outside," she says the book, "so I decided it was time to leave behind the pain and shame I felt."
That was the moment a new Demi Moore entered the scene. The actress monopolized all the spotlights once again and became the protagonist of thousands of parties. Her style, more sophisticated but equally youthful, made each of her appearances worth highlighting.
Her long dark hair, a moulded face (perhaps with extra help?) and beautiful outfits reminded of the golden age of the 1990s.
A renewed Demi Moore moved into the professional arena. 'LOL' with Miley Cyrus, 'Margin Call,' and the series 'Empire' confirmed the return of the actress.
In 2019, she published her autobiographical book 'Inside Out' and got more than one headline...
Not only was she news for her private life, but also for her style. Like this look, with multiple colors and her natural hair with some gray as the result of aging. On November 11, 2021, Demi Moore turned 59.
Demi Moore has not stopped filming. In 2020, she appeared in the movie 'Songbird' by director Michael Bay, and in the near future the film 'Please Baby Please' by director Amanda Kramer will be released. So we haven't seen the last of Demi Moore yet.
