Here's why we don't see Demi Moore anymore

Three decades and three husbands later, Tinseltown seems to have gotten over the Demi fixation it had before. But what went wrong for this dark-haired beauty?


Demi Moore started off as a Hollywood Princess, running with the Brat Pack. The girl that came to Hollywood and shook off the dust of a New Mexico trailer park has definitely done well for herself over the years.

But the most sought-after woman in eighties and nineties Hollywood is now making brief appearances on the series "Empire," leaving us to wonder why we don't see Demi Moore in anything big that's worth watching anymore.

Moore's career has been on a downward spiral for years, let's follow the path of her nose dive.



The gorgeous starlet starred in some iconic classics like "St. Elmo's Fire" and "About Last Night," which is when she first broke into the big time.

Unlike many young actors, her career bubble only got bigger and she went on to star in several big-budget movies, opposite mega-stars, and legends.



Her performance opposite Patrick Swayze in "Ghost," a movie that raked in over $500 million, threw her onto the list of biggest stars in the world.

Moore would negotiate a deal of $12.5 million for her next movie after "Ghost."



"The Scarlet Letter" did not do as well and only made a fifth of its budget. "Striptease" and "G.I. Jane" would also go down as box office bombs.

When "The Joneses" racked up $1,355 per screen average in its second weekend of screening, Moore's demands for 8 digit paydays were long behind her.



Moore blamed ageism in Hollywood for her lack of quality roles and seemingly getting relegated from the A-list. She bemoaned the fact that there were no good roles for a woman of her age, except as the wife or mother of the lead.



A 2009 poll on PETA's website voted Moore "Worst Dressed Celeb in Tinsel Town" because of her inordinate amount of animal fur products, and they reportedly said:

"She may be a cougar, but that's not helping fur-loving Demi Moore in the eyes of animal lovers."

Ashton Kutcher, Moore's then much younger husband came in at a close second after he was spotted wearing a coat made out of coyote fur.



Moore did her first stint in a rehabilitation facility in 1996 when Joel Schumacher threatened to fire her from "St. Elmo's Fire" if she didn't clean up.

Rumors about drug taking have surrounded her ever since and were only reinforced when she reportedly had a seizure while high in 2012.

A 21-year-old man who drowned in her pool in 2015 was found to be intoxicated. Although Moore was not at home at the time, it left a sour taste in people's mouths and she was sued for the man's death.



Moore moved in with daughter Rumer after getting a part on "Empire." Rumer is on the same show as a smart-mouthed musician. Moore was only in the series for six episodes.



Moore recently made a sizable investment in Andie Swim, a company that makes swimsuits designed solely by women for women.

The woman is no stranger to the bikini, as anyone who followed "Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle" would know.



A passion she shared with Kutcher and is vocal about is the abolition of modern-day slavery and human trafficking, and she was honored this year for all her efforts to keep young girls safe from such horrors.


A video that came to light of a 19-year-old Demi Moore kissing a 15-year-old boy multiple times has seen her being accused of indecent behavior.

Some have even demanded her name be added to the growing list of sexual predators in Hollywood, alongside the likes of Harvey Weinstein in the #MeToo movement.
