  • Quotes

    • Demi Moore: (on making her directorial debut with the film "Streak", starring daughter Rumer) The great thing is I'm seeing her [Rumer] mature and operate as a complete professional. And it's giving us, I think, another opportunity to connect in a totally different way.

    • Demi Moore: (On dealing with the paparazzi) When I first moved back to L.A., I had a very difficult time and found that I didn't want to leave the house so much. And then I started to feel, well, I don't want to be isolated and worried that if they're getting a photograph then I'm not going to go and do something. It's difficult when they hang out at the bottom of your street waiting for you to drive by.

    • Demi Moore: (When asked if she and Bruce Willis have trouble being friends) It's far more exhausting to be angry and blaming. You can dig deep within yourself and really have a desire for someone else's happiness, which I feel I do have for Bruce and he has for me. He has a joy and appreciation for what Ashton and I share, and for how Ashton is with the girls.

    • Demi Moore: The truth is you can have a great marriage, but there are still no guarantees.

    • Demi Moore: I want greatness.

    • Demi Moore: I'm sure there are a lot of people who think I'm a bitch.


    • Demi Moore: Emilio Estevez was definitely my first love.

    • Demi Moore: I'm not twenty. Not thirty. But I'm certainly different from what most people feel someone in her forties should be.

    • Demi Moore: Time is an amazing equalizer. I think if you stay true to yourself and keep moving forward, things come around.

    • Demi Moore: (on plastic surgery) I have no problems with enhancing one's looks or fixing something that's changed. I don't see me getting oodles of stuff done, but for some things it's a godsend. After three kids, gravity takes its toll and everything heads south, so it's an option.

    • Demi Moore: (on having another child) I still might. Geena Davis had her first when she was forty-six. I'm not saying I will, but I don't rule out anything in my life. I view my life as being able to have and do everything and anything.

    • Demi Moore: There's this idea that if you take your clothes off, somehow you must have loose morals. There's still a negative attitude in our society towards women who use a strength that's inherent - their femininity - in any way that might be considered seductive.
