There isn't a romantic note she isn't required to play in this movie, and she plays them all flawlessly."
Again playing the love interest, Moore co-starred with John Cusack in the popular comedy One Crazy Summer (1986). She was working steadily, but had yet to score a big, box-office hit. In 1987, she and Estevez broke up, and Moore later met actor Bruce Willis, who was then on the popular television show Moonlighting with Cybill Shepherd. The two began dating and got married in November of 1987 in Las Vegas. They welcomed their first child together, a daughter named Rumer, in 1988. She was named after the British writer Rumer Godden.
That same year, Moore returned to the big screen with The Seventh Sign, an apocalyptic thriller. She played a pregnant woman trying to stop the end of the world. Despite a few positive reviews for her performance in it, the film only earned about $16 million at the box office. Moore took on lighter fare with her next effort, 1989's We're No Angels, which starred Robert De Niro and Sean Penn. Despite its impressive cast, the film did not fare well with audiences.
Moore's biggest career breakthrough came in 1990 with the romantic drama Ghost. She played Molly, a young woman whose husband Sam (played by Patrick Swayze) was murdered. His spirit works with a psychic (played by Whoopi Goldberg) to avenge his death and to protect Molly from those involved. Showing an impressive amount of vulnerability on screen, Moore earned praise for her work on the film, which became a huge hit. Ghost brought in approximately $218 million at the box office and earned five Academy Award nominations.
Her next two films, Nothing But Trouble (1991) and The Butcher's Wife (1991), showed off Moore's comedic side. They both, however, failed to attract much of an audience. That same year, Moore became the talk of the nation with her controversial Vanity Fair cover. She was in the midst of her second pregnancy when she posed in the nude for the magazine's cover. While surprised by the dramatic response to the image, Moore also saw the cover as a chance to challenge perceptions about women and pregnancy. "People in this country don't want to embrace motherhood and sensuality. . . . You're either sexy, or you're a mother. I didn't want to have to choose," she told Interview magazine. Not too long after that issue appeared on newsstands, Moore and Willis celebrated the birth of their second daughter Scout.
Co-starring with Tom Cruise, Moore played a tough navy lawyer in the smash hit A Few Good Men (1992). She continued to prosper commercially with Indecent Proposal (1993). In the film, she and Woody Harrelson play a married couple in financial trouble who travel to Las Vegas to gamble their way back to solvency. They, however, end up losing their money and befriending a lonely billionaire (played by Robert Redford). He offers the desperate couple $1 million for the opportunity to sleep with Moore's character.
