How Demi Moore’s net worth was built
Born Demetria Guynes, actress Demi Moore may be best known for her film role in “Ghost” (1990) and also for her tumultuous love life. She began her acting career playing a journalist in the soap opera “General Hospital” and performed some bit parts in other films, but her big break came with her leading role in “St. Elmo’s Fire” in 1985. She went on to appear in a number of successful films, including “A Few Good Men” (1992), “Indecent Proposal” (1993) and “Disclosure” (1994). In 1996, Moore was reported as one of the highest-paid actresses with a $12.5 million paycheck for the film “Striptease,” which was a semi-flop.
Moore married musician Freddie Moore in 1981, divorcing him in 1984. In 1987 she married actor Bruce Willis, splitting up in 1998 and divorcing in 2000. She went on to marry Aston Kutcher in 2005, divorcing in 2013. However, during much of the late 1990s and early 2000s, she lived in Idaho with her three daughters by ex-husband Willis. She came out of her semi-retirement in 2003 with “Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle,” “Bobby” in 2006, and then in 2009 with her roles in “Happy Tears” and “The Joneses.”
