Born in the famous and controversial town of Roswell, New Mexico, Demi Moore did not have the most auspicious start in life: her father left her mother just two months after their wedding and before Demi was even born. However, a new father figure stepped into her life when she was still a baby. Just 3 moths old, Demi had a step father, Dan Guynes, who married Demi’s mother, adopted the little girl and gave her his name.

Given her step father’s job – a newspaper advertising salesman – Demi moved a lot during her childhood and early teens. As a child, she had various health problems: she was cross-eyed, a condition corrected by two surgeries, and suffered from kidney dysfunction. Despite these deficiencies, Demi Guynes would grow up to become the highest paid actress of the 90’s decade and one of the top Hollyood A-list stars and sex symbols.
Coquetting With The Fashion World: When she was 15, Demi Guynes moved with her family to West Hollywood, in California. One year later, she dropped out of high school, moved out of her family’s home and signed a contract with the prestigious Elite Model Agency. She traveled across Europe on various modeling engagements as a pin-up girl and even lived next door to German actress Nastassja Kinski. But it was not modeling that amassed the sizable Demi Moore net worth of $150 million.
First Marriage and First Roles: In August 1979, barely 17 years old, Demi Guynes marries musician Freddie Moore. The marriage lasted for 5 years and gave the aspiring actress the professional name she continued to use throughout her life and career: Demi Moore.
Her first role was a short supporting part in the movie Choices, in 1981. A few months later, she joined the cast of General Hospital soap opera on ABC network. Demi played the part of investigative journalist Jackie Templeton for 3 years and, in 1984, she landed her breakthrough role in the sexy comedy Blame It On the Rio.
However, the first commercial success with Demi Moore playing the leading part was St. Elmo’s Fire, although the movie received negative criticism. There were negative reviews in 1990, when Demi Moore starred alongside Patrick Swayze in the blockbuster Ghost. The romantic drama brought Demi her first Golden Globe nomination.
In 1996, Demi Moore became the highest paid actress of the decade - $12.5 million for her role in the movie Striptease. The Hollywood star has three daughters – Rummer, Scout LaRue and Tallulah Belle – and has been married three times so far: to Freddie Moore, Bruce Willis and Ashton Kutcher.
