"I'm an incurable optimist and a go-getter — it's in my nature to focus much more on what makes me happy than what makes me nervous."

Demi Gene Guynesnote  (born November 11, 1962), professionally known as Demi Moore, is an American actress, filmmaker, and model. After appearing on the soap opera General Hospital, she subsequently gained recognition for her work in Blame It On Rio (1984) and St. Elmo's Fire (1985) and for being part of The '80s Brat Pack clique. Her first film to become both a critical and commercial hit was About Last Night... (1986), which established her as a Hollywood star.

In 1990, Moore starred in 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 A Few Good Men (1992), Indecent Proposal (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 remained a subject of substantial media interest for her relationship with the actor Bruce Willis, with whom she has three daughters. She married Ashton Kutcher in 2005, but they separated in 2011.
