WOULD YOU PAY $1 MILLION TO SLEEP WITH THIS WOMAN? WOULD YOU BE upset if she threatened to ruin your career if you didn't sleep with her? Would you pay her $12 million just to take her clothes off? From Indecent Proposal
to her latest project, Striptease
, Demi Moore
, 32, has cornered the Hollywood market on the irresistible triangle of sex, power and money. The $1 million in Indecent Proposal
was part of the plot line, but the $12 million in Striptease is Moore's fee for the role—the highest ever for an actress. What kind of figure merits those kinds of figures—apart from the one that's unveiled so often on magazine covers and movie screens? "She seems to have the personality of someone who doesn't understand she's attractive," says Barry Levinson, her Disclosure director. "She's got that blues-singer quality in her voice that suggests she has lived. And she's got that vulnerability in her eyes which allows us to embrace her." Allow us to embrace her. Please.
