Bruce Willis and Demi Moore were one of the biggest couples during the late ‘80s and the ‘90s. They were young, attractive and successful, and they really seemed to love each other, which became especially evident during their interviews when they would constantly gush about each other. It’s now been almost 20 years since the couple called it quits, so let’s take a trip down memory lane with these 9 things you didn’t know about Hollywood’s former power couple:
They met at the screening for Stakeout in August 1987, which featured Demi’s ex fiancé Emilio Estevez, who she had recently broken up with. Bruce had a reputation for being a drinker and a womanizer, but Moore, who had already been to rehab for her own drug and alcohol use, didn’t seem to care. She told People magazine that she found the actor “just so ready to embrace and give [her] love.” Within a couple weeks they were an item and soon after his boozing stopped.
The movie stars met in August 1987 and were married just three months later on November 21, 1987 in Las Vegas at the Golden Nugget hotel with only a handful of guests present. The reverend who married them had no idea who they were until one of her coworkers pointed it out. A month later, the couple renewed their vows at a lavish L.A. bash with a select group of friends and family.
