The latest news about Demi Moore, born Demi Guynes in 1962, is her new boyfriend, the celebrity chef Daniel Humm, 13 years her junior. For the longtime movie star, such things still become fodder for the Hollywood and world media. The new couple attended the 2022 French Open tennis tournament together and were seen being affectionate in the stands. Demi Moore, however, has been famous and interesting to many for many reasons for a long time. Among the points of interest, it turns out, is Moore’s fondness for fine cigars.

Demi Moore Is Famous

Moore, who began her movie career in 1981 in a small film called Choices, is accustomed to media scrutiny. Moore’s big career breakthrough came with the 1985 movie St. Elmo’s Fire and a year later she received high marks from top critics for her role in About Last Night, co-starring Rob Lowe. Perhaps her most notable role, or scene, came in the 1990 film Ghost. Moore and the late Patrick Swayze, playing the ghost of Moore’s husband, spiritually reunite in a scene that gives pottery-making a new place in romantic lore. Moore went on to even greater success with her roles in A Few Good Men, Indecent Proposal, and Disclosure. In 1996, Moore became, at the time, the highest-paid female actor in a movie, receiving $12.5 million to star in Striptease.

Star Marriages

Moore has been married three times, in each case to entertainers. Her first marriage, at 18, was to the singer Freddy Moore, who was 30. She had already begun using the surname “Moore” as a stage name. After the pair split, Moore was linked romantically to the actors Timothy Hutton, then Emilio Estevez. In 1987, Moore married Bruce Willis, a cigar aficionado himself, and had three daughters. The marriage lasted 13 years. In 2003, Moore began dating actor Ashton Kutcher, who is 15 years younger. The two married in 2005 and separated in 2012, divorcing a year later.

Demi Moore Smokes Cigars

Moore’s fame made it easy to take notice that, in 1989, she began smoking cigars. Seven years later, Moore graced the cover of Cigar Aficionado. In the article, Moore notes, “There’s something about smoking a cigar that feels like a celebration. It’s like a fine wine. There’s a quality, a workmanship, a passion that goes into the smoking of a fine cigar.”

Moore explained, "I started just really for the fun of it. I saw people smoking, usually just men because back then you didn't see very many women smoking cigars. And of course my husband [Willis] smokes them. And I wanted to find out what it was about it that they found so appealing."

Demi Moore’s Favorite Cigar Brand

Moore, a former cigarette smoker, said her first serious cigar was “a large, strong Montecristo, and I thought it was way too much for me. But then I discovered the smaller cigars, and I began to have my romance with them."

Moore’s friends, “Tom [Cruise] and Nicole [Kidman]” gave Moore a traveling humidor. That’s when she knew she had reached a new level with cigars.

"It's my work humidor,” Moore explained. I keep it in my trailer. I keep it stocked with a variety of cigars, ones I like and ones I have available for other people."

After that first big cigar, Moore downsized a bit.

"I switch between the small Cohiba Panatela and the little Montecristo Joyitas. But now I've graduated to where I sometimes have a Cohiba No. 2 or a Montecristo No. 2. I like a mild cigar. And I like it not to be too large. I have small hands and a small head, and I don't want a cigar that's bigger than both of those parts of my body. I like the flavor. I like the taste. I enjoy the smell of a good cigar. It relaxes me. It's a great social activity.”
