Demi Moore to play Gloria Steinem in 'Lovelace'
Demi Moore had a rough 2011, so it's cool to see she's back in the news today for agreeing to portray Gloria Steinem in the upcoming Linda Lovelace bio-flick. Playing a feminist icon should be old hat to Demi, who scored some major coin for playing similar free-spirited roles in the '80s.
Top 5 list you say? Oh, Demi, it's the least we can do for you.
TOP 5 DEMI MOORE ROLES OF THE '80s:
5. ABBY QUINN (The Seventh Sign, 1988): Oh, this is a dark one. If you haven't seen it, I'm not giving anything away. Let's just say that long before all the 2012 paranoia, the earth faced an almost certain apocalypse in 1988 until Demi Moore stepped in.
4. MOLLY (We're No Angels, 1989): A nearly unwatchable movie, but only Demi shines as the hard-talking single mom/prostitute who needs a new start on life.
3. CASSANDRA (One Crazy Summer, 1986): Not exactly a classic movie, but Demi is great as the indie singer forced to raise money to save her grandfather's house. I don't buy any romantic chemistry between her and John Cusack though. Sorry.
2. DEBBIE (About Last Night, 1986): You can literally see her heart break in two when Rob Lowe delivers the haymaker: "I don't ... love you ... anymore." (I hope Ashton didn't hit her again with that one. Jerk.)
1. JULES (St. Elmo's Fire, 1985): She was a coke-snorting banker who enjoyed setting up her gay neighbor, sleeping her way to the top and teasing Andrew McCarthy. In other words, she was the '80s!
