He was born with a clubfoot and a shorter left leg.

Was part owner (with Tony Bill and Liza Minnelli) of 72 Sarket Street Club in Venice, California. Opened in 1984. Closed in November 2000.

With Tony Bill, part owner of the restaurant Maple Drive in Beverly Hills, California.

Moore's fourth wife Nicole Rothschild filed suit in June 1997, suing Moore on nine counts of domestic violence, assault, battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress, and other claims asking for $10 million in damages.

Moore was fired from his role in "The Mirror Has Two Faces" because he was having problems recalling his lines. Rumors swirled that it was because he had a substance abuse problem (fueled in part by his signature role of "Arthur"). In reality, he was suffering from the early stages of progressive supranuclear palsy which results in impaired balance and slurred speech. Commenting on his condition, Moore was quoted, "It's so frustrating. My thoughts aren't always able to be amplified - they disappear into a blank space, a blank connection. ..."

Made a Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) in June 2001.
