All about Demi Moore
Demi Moore was born on November 11, 1962 in Roswell, New Mexico.
Moore is an American actress and film producer. After appearing in a number of television series throughout the early 1980s, Moore came to prominence in 1989 with her role in the hit comedy film Ghost.
Moore has been married to actor Bruce Willis since November 21, 1987
Moore and Willis separated in 1998, but later reconciled.Moore and Willis have three daughters: Rumer Glenn (born August 1988), Scout LaRue (born July 1991), and Tallulah Belle (born February 1994). Moore has said that she named her first daughter after the poet Rumi.
After Moore and Willis separated in 1998, Moore had a brief relationship with actor Ashton Kutcher. In 2003, she married Kutcher, but they divorced in November 2005.
Since her divorce from Kutcher, Moore has been in a relationship with English artist Marc Silber. The two live together in Greenwich Village, New York City.
Her later film credits include G.I. Jane (1997), for which she won a Golden Globe Award, and Ghost Writer (2010). In addition to acting, Moore has been a fashion model and producer since the 2000s.
Moore is a carrier of the hepatitis C virus (HCV). She first learned of her infection in 1995, during the filming of The Scarlet Letter. In 2005, she became a spokeswoman for the Abbot Laboratories drug company’s campaign to educate the public about the disease and how it is spread.
Moore and her husband had always practiced safe sex (including condom use), but Moore was floored when Willis told her he might have contracted HCV from using cocaine with other partners. “I felt betrayed, lied to, and angry,” Moore later wrote about the experience. “I couldn’t believe that he could do something like that and then come home and be so loving.”
Moore has since teamed up with the American Foundation for AIDS Research (amfAR) to help promote awareness of HCV and funds for research into new treatments for the disease.
“I want to do whatever I can to help eradicate this virus,” Moore said in a 2005 interview with Health magazine. “It’s not just about me; it’s about my friends, my family, and everyone who is affected by it.”
Moore has also worked with the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation. In 2005, she hosted a benefit with Elizabeth Taylor in Washington DC to promote HIV/AIDS awareness and prevention.
In 2009, Moore voiced concern for the more than one million children around the world who had been orphaned by AIDS. She urged people to consider adopting from countries such as Haiti and Ethiopia, which have large AIDS-orphan populations.
In 2005, Moore and her husband donated $2 million to endow an academic chair at the University of Southern California (USC) School of Cinema-Television. It is one of several endowments that Moore has established with a total of more than $7 million she has given to her alma mater over the years.
Moore is also a longtime supporter of the Democratic Party, and has donated to several political candidates, including Barack Obama in 2007.
