|Demi Moore, the American film actress, was born on November 1, 1962, in the universally known city of Roswell, New Mexico. The real name of the film star is Demetria Gynes.
It is odd but a fact that despite no especially famous role in Demi Moore's list of movies, she evaluated her participation in various films to be worth big bucks. A clear example of this is that, although in 1996 when she was offered to act in the film "Striptease," she asked for a then-unprecedented $12.5 million! Not a single actress had ever dared to demand such an unthinkable salary. The actress had plastic surgery to remove excess fat from her back, stomach, and thighs specially for shooting in this momentous film for her movie career. As befits a person disposed toward scandalous behavior, Demi Moore didn't try to carefully conceal this—on the contrary, a large-scale ad campaign was launched for her, the purpose of which was to present her new look to the public throughout the world.
Demi Moore became the living embodiment of the idea of feminism, thanks to which women in the modern world practically obtained the same rights as men. The stunning world success of the movie "G.I. Jane" became clear confirmation of this: according to the plot, the heroine actress equally endures all hardships and difficulties of military service in a special operations force.
The spirit of feminism makes itself felt clearly in those films in which Demi Moore is the producer. In 1991, she organized her own production company "Moving Pictures." The film "Now and Then" was her first experience as a producer: it showed the history of four childhood girlfriends who change into adult ladies imperceptibly from the people around. Demi Moore played the role here of clever and independent Samantha, who derives vitality from one's own childhood memories. Thanks to the actress's financial support, the movie "If These Walls Could Talk" was made: on the screen she portrayed, so unlike her real self, a woman dying due to a public ban on abortion.
During the long years of her movie career, the press got used to the actress's shocking behavior — constant experiments with her image and appearance evidently are by the same token the secret of the undying interest in her personality on the part of the public worldwide. |
