Demi Moore is struggling and allegedly cutting herself off from friends in the entertainment industry.
She was one of Hollywood’s hottest A-list actresses who commanded the highest salary for films, but things are far from what they were. Radar Online reports that after three divorces, multiple rehab stints, and a waning movie career, Demi is worrying those closest to her.
According to the report, Demi is even having to slash the price of her NYC residence that she paid $15 million for in 1990. Last week, she lowered the price from $75 million to $59 million. A source said she decided to sell the property after divorcing Ashton Kutcher, who’s now married to Mila Kunis and expecting their second baby together.
Demi Moore recently completed two films and is currently shooting the independent film, Love Sonja, but Radar’s insider claims that the 53-year-old actress isn’t as driven to find big roles anymore.
“She is not even really trying that hard to land big deals in Hollywood anymore because she is just over all of it lately,” the source said.
The insider reveals that Demi has also “cut herself off from most of her contacts and friends in the industry.”
When Demi appeared at a Vogue 100 Gala event in May, some thought she lost even more weight and sparked rumors. The source said that Demi has been “going through a rough patch lately.”
It’s believed that a tragic drowning that happened at Demi’s Los Angeles estate last year spawned her “downward spiral.” The actress wasn’t home at the time of the incident.
Refinery 29 highlights Demi Moore’s famous salary in 1996 for the role she played in Striptease. In calculating inflation rates and which actresses today earn the highest salaries in major film roles, Demi’s $12.5 million salary 20 years ago would be $19 million today. Only a few actresses today command that kind of money, with one of them being Jennifer Lawrence, who earned $20 million for her upcoming movie Passengers. Other actresses who recently brought in a lot of money for 2016 were Scarlett Johansson and Melissa McCarthy.
Demi has relaxed on chasing her youth. When she was married to Ashton, a sense of desperation took hold of her to stay young and skinny. It was as if she was fighting the aging process with everything she had to keep a much younger husband. Now, Demi seems more at peace and has accepted her maturity. The Mirror recently published photos of the star out and about with wisps of silver hair.
The actress still maintains an incredible body and youthful look overall. The Daily Mail posted photos of Demi on the red carpet attending the Vogue dinner last month. The report was titled “Bleary-eyed Demi Moore, 53, look worse for wear after wowing in cleavage-flashing paneled gothic gown at Vogue 100 bash.”
The British paper wrote that Demi wore “large black-rimmed glasses and seemed somewhat bleary-eyed as she called it a night.” The rest of the report raved about her appearance, however. The actress looked stunning with perfect makeup, a dress that showed off her killer body, and shiny black hair. There were no hints of silver hairs at that event. In the image above, Demi removed her glasses for the red carpet photos.
Demi Moore isn’t as prevalent in the spotlight as she once was. The actress’ hunger for publicity has greatly diminished, perhaps favoring a more laid back lifestyle after the whirlwind of scandals that followed around the time she and Ashton split.
