Demi Moore - Quotes
The truth is you can have a great marriage, but there are still no guarantees.
Emilio Estevez was definitely my first love.
I don't like to take my clothes off.
Marriage was a goal. A family, for me as a young girl, was my image of what I hoped for. It was part of the big picture.
I had an essence in my life that I was nothing.
I said I would get better with each baby, and I have.
I want things to be the best they can be. I want greatness.
I'm sure there are a lot of people who think I'm a bitch.
It really isn't anybody's business how many people we have working for us. What's offensive is that I'm portrayed as this prima donna with these sycophants telling me how great I am all the time. Yes, they do work for me, but we're working together for a higher good.
Look, when people came after me for doing 'Indecent Proposal' or 'Disclosure,' I thought, 'Ridiculous.' These people are trying to limit me as an actor. Are they saying I can't play these roles? Well, I've proved I can.
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.
