This Girl Was Traded to an Older Man for Money as a Child — Now She’s a Famous Actress who Managed to Reconcile with Her 3 Daughters

This woman is one of the world’s most famous actresses.

She was a pillar of 1990s cinema as an icon of beauty and sensuality.

However, her fame and recognition were preceded by difficult tests of fate.

Growing up, this future celebrity didn’t have an easy childhood, as it was marked by a mother who constantly drank and even traded her for a few hundred dollars. She rose above it all, achieved great success in her career, and is now a mother of three girls.

Some Background Information about the Actress

Her birth name is Demi Gene Guynes, and she was born on November 11, 1962. Her birth father, Air Force Airman Charles Harmon Sr., left her mother, Virginia King, after a marriage of only two months.

By the time this future star was born, her parents were no longer together. When she was three months old, her mother remarried a newspaper advertising salesman, Dan Guynes. Her stepfather changed jobs a lot, and this meant they had to move houses several times.

At 12, she underwent two eye surgeries to correct severe strabismus. She also suffered from kidney dysfunctions, and at 13, she discovered the truth about her birth father. While still a teenager, she left her mother to live with her grandmother.

Demi Moore enrolled at Fairfax High School, which she left in her junior year, and signed with the Elite Modeling Agency before enrolling in drama classes. In 1981, she married musician Freddy Moore and took his last name for the rest of her artistic career, which, fortunately for her, took off that same year.

In 1981, she landed a role in “General Hospital” before making her film debut in “Choices.” She then starred in movies like the 1984 “Blame It on Rio” and “No Small Affair.” In 1985 she started getting public recognition when she starred in “St. Elmo’s Fire.”

The following year, Demi had a positive turning point in her career with “About Last Night.” However, her most successful movie is “Ghost” — a 1990 romantic fantasy thriller directed by Jerry Zucker. The actress attained her A-list status with roles in “A Few Good Men,” “Indecent Proposal,” and “Disclosure.”

By 1995, she had become the highest-paid actress in Hollywood for her role in “Striptease.” On one hand, her career took off; however, on the other, her marriage with Freddy only lasted just five years.

In 1987, she married Bruce Willis, and the two became one of the most famous couples until 2000 when they divorced. The couple had three daughters: Rumer Glenn, Scout LaRue, and Tallulah Belle. After her divorce from Bruce, she remarried for the third time in 2005.
