Demi Gene Guynes[[note]]Sources are divided as to whether her birth name is Demetria or Demi. Moore says the latter.[[/note]] (born November 11, 1962), professionally known as Demi Moore, is an American actress, filmmaker, and model. After appearing on the soap opera ''Series/GeneralHospital'', she subsequently gained recognition for her work in ''Film/BlameItOnRio'' (1984) and ''Film/StElmosFire'' (1985) and for being part of TheEighties Creator/BratPack clique. Her first film to become both a critical and commercial hit was ''Film/AboutLastNight'' (1986), which established her as a Hollywood star.

In 1990, Moore starred in ''Film/{{Ghost}}'', the highest-grossing film of that year, for which she received a Golden Globe nomination. She had a string of additional box-office successes in the early 1990s, including ''Film/AFewGoodMen'' (1992), ''Film/IndecentProposal'' (1993), and ''Film/{{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 ''Film/{{Striptease}}'', a film that was a high-profile disappointment. Her next major role, ''Film/GIJane'' (1997), for which she famously shaved her head, was followed by a lengthy break and significant downturn in Moore's career, although she remained a subject of substantial media interest for her relationship with the actor Creator/BruceWillis, with whom she has three daughters. She married Creator/AshtonKutcher in 2005, but they separated in 2011.

!!Tropes associated with this actress' works and portrayals in media:
* ActionGirl: In ''Film/GIJane''.
* BaldWoman: Shaved her head on-screen in ''G. I. Jane''. Caused quite a stir.
* BuxomIsBetter: She had breast augmentation surgery in the mid-1990s to help her career as a Hollywood sex symbol, and her bigger bust definitely attracted the notice of the tabloids.
* FemmeFatale: Better believe it, see ''Disclosure'' in which she starred as Creator/MichaelDouglas's predatory boss.
* HollywoodHypeMachine: It ''really'' got behind her after her stretch in the early nineties -- she was appearing on every ''Series/EntertainmentTonight'', and was constantly talked-about in magazines. It eventually switched itself off for her once ''Film/{{Striptease}}'' and ''Film/TheScarletLetter'' bombed, ruining her credibility. It started again after ''Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle''; really trying to push her as the archetype of "Hot Older Woman," but it kinda sputtered again and she was much more known as "Tabloid Magnet" instead of "Actress."
* InkSuitActor: The HotGypsyWoman Esmeralda from Disney's ''Disney/TheHunchbackOfNotreDame'' is pretty much Demi Moore with wavy and full bodied hair.
* ItsPronouncedTroPAY: Her name is pronounced '''"Dmee"''' and not '''"Demmy"'''. Apparently a minor BerserkButton for her. They did an entire bit about the pronounciation on ''Series/{{Seinfeld}}'' ("I never heard of a smee-tractor trailer!")
* MsFanservice: Was one of Hollywood's "go to" girls for nudity in cinema for a good long time. It's part of what kept her from being taken seriously as an actress (well, that and the bomb that was ''Striptease'').
* PeekABangs: Her characters tended to sport these during TheEighties and the early [[TheNineties '90s]].
* ProductionPosse: [[invoked]] In her Creator/BratPack days.
* RichBitch: See ''Film/{{Disclosure}}'', ''Film/IndecentProposal''.
