Yet another tumultuous Hollywood marriage- Demi Moore and Bruce Willis. The couple met in 1987 at a screening of the movie “Stakeout” – a film that starred Emilio Estevez (her fiance at the time). The two hit it off instantly and just four months later tied the knot – Vegas-style. The couple ended up having three kids together; Rumer, Scout, and Tallulah.
By 1998, the couple had separated and by 2000 they had officially filed for divorce. While they may not be together anymore, these two have demonstrated some very fine co-parenting skills. This is no easy feat, especially in Hollywood.
Humphrey Bogart Dies
Humphrey Bogart was known for many iconic roles throughout the 30s and 40s, such as "The Maltese Falcon" and "Casablanca." As one of the most beloved and respected leading men of his time, one might even call him the Leonardo DiCaprio of his generation. This made the day he died all the more painful.
The ceremony was attended by some of Hollywood's biggest stars, including Hepburn, Tracy, Judy Garland, David Niven, Ronald Reagan, James Mason, Bette Davis, Danny Kaye, Joan Fontaine, Marlene Dietrich, James Cagney, Errol Flynn, Gregory Peck, Gary Cooper, Billy Wilder and studio head Jack L. Warner.
Elvis Presley Enlists
The King of Rock and Roll was at the peak of his career when he decided to drop everything and enlist in the U.S. military. Between 1958 and 1960, Presley joined his fellow Americans on the ground and even turned down a position in the special forces as an entertainer for the troops.
In this picture, Presley is pictured on a German military base between 1958 and 1960. Those were two pivotal years for the singer. Not only did military life affect him directly, but he also hugely impacted his career. Suddenly the older generations gained a lot more respect for him, securing a very prosperous but different career after his release. During this time he also, unfortunately, got hooked on stimulants and barbiturates. This eventually led to his overdose.
Nicole Kidman and Tom Cruise at the 1991 Academy Awards
Hollywood's golden couple of the 90s restored many fans' belief in forever-lasting love in Tinsletown. At least for a while of course. The two met in 1990 on the set of "Days of Thunder," a film in which they both starred. It was love at first sight and by the end of the year on December 24, the love birds were married.
The couple adopted two children, Isabella Jane (born 1992) and Connor Antony (born 1995) but sadly, by 2000, after a decade together, the two began the process of divorce. Since that heartbreaking end, the two have found love again. Kidman with Keith Urban and Cruise with Katie Holmes. Unfortunately for the "Jerry Maguire" actor, that too eventually ended in divorce.
Easy Rider at Cannes
The year 1969 was a year full of change that was sweeping America and even the rest of the world. It was the time of hippies, Woodstock, tie-dye shirts, and long and wild hair. It was also the year that the iconic cult film "Easy Rider" transported America. The film tells the tale of two bikers on a road trip, pursuing the American dream, while at the same time getting caught up in a whirlwind of substances, promiscuity, and violence.
The film received such high praise that the creators Peter Fonda, Dennis Hopper, and Terry Southern got their spot at the Cannes Film Festival, the most prestigious film festival in cinema that takes place. The crew of hippie filmmakers arrived in traditional attire from the American Civil War. Needless to say, the bunch definitely shook things up at the fancy black-tie affair.
