Moore quit Fairfax High School in Los Angeles at age 16 to pursue her career as a model and actress. Her friend, future actress Nastassja Kinski, encouraged her to do so. Judge her for dropping out if you want to, but Demi Moore is rich and successful, and you’re definitely not.
Though Moore’s played plenty of iconic parts, there are a few famous roles on which she missed out. She was in the running for the lead in Flashdance before Jennifer Beals scored it. And Sandra Bullock replaced her as the lead in While You Were Sleeping.
Moore is considered a member of the Brat Pack, a group of young actors who appeared in a bunch of movies together in the ‘80s. Brat Pack movies with Moore in their casts include St. Elmo's Fire, About Last Night... and Wisdom.
Moore was at one time the highest-paid actress in Hollywood. She commanded $12.5 million for the 1996 movie Striptease, more than any actress had been paid for a film until that point. The movie was a critical failure and a box-office bomb.
Moore has three daughters, all of them with second husband Bruce Willis. The eldest daughter is Rumer Willis, who has gained notice for her own acting career. The other two daughters don’t matter because they’re not famous. That's true, right?
Moore made headlines in the ‘00s for her May-December third marriage to the then-popular model/actor Ashton Kutcher. When they married, she was 44 and he was 27. No one thought it would last, and indeed it didn’t. They divorced in 2013.
