This Is Demi Moore's Advice For Young Actresses Today

For years, Demi Moore was one of the most sought-after actresses in Hollywood. Just a teen at the time, Moore got her big break after joining the cast of General Hospital in 1982. By 1990, the actress had solidified her status as a household name with the film Ghost, opposite Patrick Swayze and Whoopi Goldberg. Following the hit film, Moore took over the '90s with movies like Indecent Proposal and Disclosure. These days, the actress has a hand in a little bit of everything. From appearing in Rihanna's 2020 Savage X Fenty show to executive producing the erotic podcast Dirty Diana, Moore is still a major presence in and out of Hollywood. 

"A big part of doing this is really removing the fear attached to [sex], sharing and opening up the discussion to normalize it" the actress told Harper's Bazaar about the podcast. "[Women] feel pleasure and that's not a broken part of us. That's a natural, God-given part of us and how we work. It's not a mistake, but we haven't had enough comfort to explore that." On top of working to normalize women openly discussing their sex lives, Moore is also revealing her best advice for young actresses in Hollywood.

Demi Moore tells actresses not to look for validation

Speaking on a virtual panel as part of the 2020 Venice Film Festival, actress Demi Moore stressed the importance of female representation in Hollywood. "It's one of the strongest ways in which we can support women," the Ghost actress said (via Variety)"Knowing there are others, taking on roles that have been predominantly male, is what makes the difference."

Moore continued, giving her advice to young actresses today. "It's a different time, but the common denominator is that you really have to want this," she said during the virtual event. "And be willing to put in the effort, knowing you are going to face a lot of rejection. Don't take anything personal. And don't look for someone to validate you."

The Striptease actress has decades worth of acting credentials to justify her advice, and continues to break barriers for women in Hollywood.
