Her marriage and divorce to fellow superstar Bruce Willis, their three daughters, her nude Vanity Fair pregnancy portrait, her groundbreaking $12.5 million payday for "Striptease" (1996) - all of it left Moore the most talked-about actress of the 1990s.

But it was her May-December to the considerably younger Ashton Kutcher that kept her a constant tabloid topic, though in the end such media fascination led to her personal embarrassment due to Kutcher's alleged infidelities and their eventual separation.

While she found many detractors and critics throughout her career, Moore was a dependable performer who remained a savvy media presence and viable pop culture personality.
