Demi Moore - The Most Powerful Woman in Hollywood

Demi was a workhorse for several years. She had many projects on her plate during the mid nineties. Striptease and G.I. Jane among them (also her most high profile roles) where she put a lot of effort in, from training in pre production reshaping her body to promotion...but in the end the reward wasn't there.

Her performances were panned, the box office did not see successful returns according to Hollywood standards. When you think you are doing good work, but ultimately being criticized from audiences while producers are raising eyebrows and worst of all this, amidst a divorce, Demi Moore chose to walk away.

Not one film "ended" Demi's career. It was a combination of things. While she was "retired" to Idaho with her daughters, she was turning down roles and not until offered "Charlie's Angels" and when, according to Demi her daughters asked "Are you ever going to work again?" did she decide to make a comeback. Had Demi not been married to Ashton Kutcher, she would have barreled through and worked more during the years they were together, but she was content to see him through his endeavors while taking on a role or two a year.

Although Demi More has had some great albeit small roles the past 10 years, her films didn't see wide releases and it still seems that she has never been able to fully breakthrough again.

She'll never be the star she was in the 90's, mainly because Hollywood (and audiences) can be ageist, but her screen presence is definitely missed and her career certainly is not over.
