One look at several top entertainment women today and you might think the road has been smooth from the day one. Definitely some were born with huge silver spoons and life handed fame and wealth to them on a platter of gold but some others had to work their way painfully to the top; one of such is St. Elmo’s fire (1985) star, Demi Moore. The famous Hollywood actress had very humble, poverty stricken beginnings and she once worked as a pin-up girl after dropping out of high school. Her family was unstable so she had to quickly become responsible for herself and this led her to an appearance on the cover of an adult magazine.
Date of Birth: November 11, 1962
Zodiac Sign: Scorpio
Her determination grew more and more despite the hardships she was facing and nothing was going to stop her from succeeding in the world of entertainment. Moore took on several odd jobs until she finally made her film debut and things pretty much took on from there with her rising to the top of the pack, cementing her spot among the finest in the Hollywood business. The Ghost (1990) actress is now one of the highest paid in the movie industry. Moore was one of the actresses of the Brat Pack generation and is the only one of those actors to still be in the limelight.

Charles Harmon Sr. (biological father)
Date of Birth: November 27, 1943
Zodiac Sign: Sagittarius
He was an air force serviceman who left his wife after just two months of marriage. He never stayed around for the arrival of Demi and they never had any bond whatsoever between them after she became much older.
Virginia Guynes (nee King) (mother)
Year of Birth: 1944
Date of Death: July 2, 1998 (aged 54)
Demetria’s early years were full of one trouble or the other leading to a disturbed childhood. Her father left Virginia after two months of marriage before their daughter was even born so she never got to know her real father. The man who was her stepfather then committed suicide when the beautiful actress was only 16. After this death of Virginia’s husband, her life took a negative toll and she was always making records for drunk driving crimes and arson.
As expected, Moore was never happy with her mother’s lifestyle and she did all she could to help her battle her addictions. Mother and daughter eventually severed contact after Virginia walked out of a rehab facility Demi had been paying for. King went ahead to publicly humiliate her daughter by posing naked for a low-end magazine in 1993 and even parodied Moore’s controversial pregnant Vanity Fair cover.
They remained out of touch for years until Virginia’s failing health brought them back. The star actress eventually reunited with her mother after she was diagnosed with brain cancer in 1997 but they did not stay in touch for so long as within a few months, Virginia succumbed to her disease. This was a devastating time for the Blame It on Rio (1984) actress as she had just divorced her husband Willis a few days before losing her mum.
Danny Gene Guynes (step-father)
Date of Birth: March 9, 1943
Month of Death: October 1980 (aged 37)
Zodiac Sign: Pisces
When Demi was a few months old, her mother married Guynes and later had a child with him. He raised her as his own but was a cruel alcoholic who never had a stable job. Their home was filled with physical violence and they moved over 30 times before the young actress was even 14. Despite his many shortcomings, Danny was the only father Demi ever knew but he ended his life two years after separating from Virginia. Guynes committed suicide by inhaling carbon monoxide from the exhaust of his car.
Morgan Guynes (younger half brother from mother’s relationship with Dan Guynes)
Date of Birth: July 26, 1967
Zodiac Sign: Leo
Morgan also works in the film business but as a special effects technician. He once served in the Marine Corps and was even stationed in Kuwait during operation Desert Shield/Storm.
James Craig Harmon Jr. (younger half brother from father’s remarriage)
Date of Birth: August 30, 1974
Zodiac Sign: Virgo
Between 2005 and 2006, James was on a number of tabloids as the troubled half-brother convicted for aggravated assault after beating his fiancée with a telephone. This was not James’ first crime as back in 1991, he was charged with theft and in June 1994 was arrested for cocaine possession; years after in September 2003, he was in possession of a firearm felon. It is not recorded how close Moore is with her half siblings but we doubt she is seeing the negative records he has.
Charles Harmon Jr. (younger half brother from father’s remarriage)
He is another half-brother to the About Last Night… (1986) star from Charles’ Sr. remarriage.
Charlotte Harmon Eggar (younger half sister from father’s remarriage)
Charlotte says she first met the Indecent proposal (1993) actress about three decades ago when she came visiting with her mum Virginia. She was so driven at the time and Charlotte remembers falling in love with her sister. They never really got to be close anyways as both half-sisters hardly kept in touch.

Date of Birth: July 19, 1950
Zodiac Sign: Cancer
In August 1979, 29 year old Freddy met Demi when she was a teenager and was married to Lucy at the time but they both moved in together as a couple. Within a year, he had divorced his first wife and got married to the 17 year old Demetria but their obsession lasted only five years as they were divorced before any child was born. She had started using his name professionally and even after they separated, she continued with it.
Moore had clearly been forced to grow up at the speed of lightning and marriage was meant to bring some form of stability for her but unfortunately their union lasted just about five years. While she was with the singer, she worked as a debt collector and fast became a pro at nude modelling.
Demi was inspired to move into acting by Nastassja Kinski, her next-door neighbour while she was with Freddy. Moore is an American rock singer best known for the song he co-wrote his then wife Demi. After their divorce, he pretty much fell out of the limelight and we never really heard about him or his career. We later heard that he quit the music business and remarried.

Duration of Marriage: September 24, 2005 – November 27, 2013 (8 years)
Date of Birth: February 7, 1978
Zodiac Sign: Aquarius
Ashton is one actor who needs no introduction as he is big time player in the Hollywood business. After taking a self-imposed hiatus to raise her daughters, Moore returned to the movie scene with the role as Madison Lee in Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle (2003) and that same year, she began dating the 15-years younger actor. They made so many tabloid headlines with people claiming their relationship was only a publicity stunt but to our amazement, the pair got married in 2005.
For all the years they were together, there was always one news or the other about them each year. Moore managed to keep things together for 8 years but the talk about their age difference and Kutcher’s infidelity kept rising and she had to make a decision. It was hard enough for the actress to split with her third husband but the tabloids ‘I told you so’ attitude hit her so hard that she was depressed and went back to drugs to soothe her pain. In a short while, she had a public nervous breakdown and was hospitalized after a grave health scare from inhaling nitrous oxide.

The months that followed were indeed hard for the actress as her erratic behavior led to problems with her family and her daughters began to maintain a distance until she sought intensive help. Moore is gladly back on her feet now and is quite content with the single life. While Demi’s drama was playing, Kutcher was busy finding loving on co actress Mila Kunis. They became engaged in February 2014 and are now married with two kids.

Thankfully, she sought for help and it is paying off now.
