Demi Moore: Temptress To The Nth Degree

When I think about Demi Moore, my mind goes to a lot of different places. If you research Demi Moore, then it adds quite a few other dimensions as well as to where your mind goes. I’m quite sure that if you had to describe Demi Moore that the word controversial will have to be a part of that description. Despite all of the above though, I think there’s one absolute indisputable fact about Demi Moore. What’s that? It’s quite simple in fact – Demi more is without of shred of doubt one of the hottest women in the entire universe. I developed a huge crush on her from the first time I laid eyes on her. That crush still lasts up to today and it’s not going anywhere. She'll be 48 years old in November and this woman is hotter than ever and still turn heads wherever she makes an appearance. Hell, she can stop traffic if she wanted to! And the raspy voice adds so much to her sex appeal as well. Her life hasn’t taken any well laid out path; it zigzagged, it took wrong turns here and there, it swerved to the left then the right and it even got real messy at some points. But you know what? Through it all she has prevailed. Ok, I admit, that’s a bit of an understatement. Demi Moore has triumphed. Yeah, that’s right. She has conquered the elements that she has had to deal with. She is at an awesome place in her life and I know, based on the resilience that she has become known for, that it’s not about to change any time soon if at all. She has had her brush with drug abuse at an early age, she’s a divorcee, she’s the mother of three, she’s now happily married once more, she’s an actress, an entrepreneur, she’s a producer, she’s gorgeous, beautiful, talented, hot, super sexy, funny, witty and so much more. She had a troubled childhood. Her father left her mom while she was till pregnant with her. Her stepfather and her mom were alcoholics. Her family was known to move some 40 times because her stepfather changed jobs a lot. He committed suicide in 1980 and her mom died of cancer at the age of 54. It’s hard to believe that as a child she was cross-eyed. She had two surgeries to correct this problem. On the advice and encouragement of a friend she dropped out of school at the tender age of 16 to pursue and acting career. She made her debut in 1982 in the horror film Parasite. The film was a hit. She went on to have minor film roles and landed the part of Jackie Templeton on General Hospital began to sort roles that would establish and solidify her status and was successful in doing so with her roles in St. Elmo’s Fire, Ghost, A Few Good Men, Indecent Proposal, Disclosure and Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle. My favorite Moore movie of all time is hands down A Few Good Men! The plot, the characters, the storyline, Demi Moore in uniform *mmm, mmm, mmm, mmm… sighs*... Lt. Cdr. JoAnne Galloway made me weak in the knees, she made my palms sweaty and I won’t mention anything about drooling; no I won’t. Demi took that role and made it her own. It was her peak performance for me; the role where she exhibited her best in my humble opinion. Did I mention Demi in uniform? Listen, not just any uniform either – marine uniform… OMG! *more sighs*. Breathe Slym, breathe. The entire cast of that movie gave sterling performances; one of the best movies ever made. Okay, so where were we? Where was I? What was I saying again? Oh yeah, Demi Moore… movies… roles…. career *sighs with face resting in hands*. Her career skyrocketed in the early 90s and with the success of this movie she became the first actress to reach 10 million dollar salary making her the highest paid actresses in Hollywood. Moore took a break from acting. A part of the reason was to raise her family. She wanted to be sure that her kids were well grounded and prepared for the world. She returned to the big screen in 2003 in the role of Madison Lee in Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle. All I can say about Madison is OMG! Yep, that just about sums it up, OMG!!! She had the bod’ of a hotrod…lol, I can’t find other words. You just have to see it for yourself. Personally, I would have preferred some more meat on her bones but still, wow…. OMG! Demi Moore + Hot Rocking Body + Stilettos (minus Fur coat) + Gun = THUD! Moore is set to play the lead role of Alexandra (a femme fatale) in a Guy Moshe’s film, Bunraku. The film is categorized as action/Drama/fantasy and is set for release some time this year; there is no specific release date. Other cast members include Ron Perlman, Woody Harrelson and Josh Hartnett. Her award wins include: Saturn Award - Best Actress for Ghost (1990), Hollywood Film Award - Ensemble of the Year for Bobby (2006 - shared with other cast), MTV Movie Award - Best Kiss for Indecent Proposal (1993 - shared with Woody Harrelson), MTV Movie Award - Sexiest She-Villain Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle (2003), People's Choice Award - Favorite Actress in a Dramatic Motion Picture (1996) and People's Choice Award - Favorite Dramatic Motion Picture Actress (1993).

Listed as one of twelve "Promising New Actors of 1986" in John Willis's Screen World, Vol. 38. Was one of three finalists for the lead in Flashdance (1983).

Auditioned for the role of Luisa Contini in Nine (2009), but Marion Cotillard (go Cotillard!!) was cast in the part instead. Was in consideration for the role of Katherine Clifton in The English Patient (1996) but Kristin Scott Thomas (yay Kristin!! Ok, I’ll stop), who went on to receive a Best Actress Oscar nomination for her performance, was cast instead. Personal Quotes
"I didn't want to work and drag my kids with me while they were trying to cross this huge transition. I wanted them to become as stable and as confident as possible. There are people who go through this and don't have the financial means, but I did. It wasn't a risk; it was the right thing to do."
"Once you've tasted a bit of success, it's more challenging. We have to continue to be willing to take a risk so that we don't get too safe. Unwillingness to risk failure is always there, but it gets harder when you feel you have more to lose. So the better place to keep yourself in is out of your comfort zone, willing to try even at the risk of failing. And that's not natural to me at all. In fact, it's completely unnatural."
