Here's a woman who has three children — she goes toe-to-toe with Cameron Diaz in a bikini. She's awesome. I just enjoy her performances and her gutsiness," said the film's director.
Around this time, Moore was also attracting a lot of media attention for her off-screen life as well. She began dating 25-year-old actor Ashton Kutcher,
who is 15 years her junior. Tabloid press could not seem to get enough of this May-December romance, with some speculating whether their relationship was merely a publicity stunt. Moore and Kutcher proved their critics wrong when they married in September 2005 at their Beverly Hills home. Kutcher has become very close with Moore's daughters, who sometimes call him "MOD," which stands for "My Other Dad."
In recent years, Moore has worked on several films. She had a small, but dramatic role playing an alcoholic lounge singer in Emilio Estevez's Bobby (2006), which imagined the final hours of Robert Kennedy through the eyes of different people at the Los Angeles Ambassador Hotel. Her strong performance earned her a lot of critical praise. Moore followed up this success with the thriller Mr. Brooks (2007) with Kevin Costner. She played a detective pursuing a serial killer (Costner) in the film. She co-starred in the heist caper Flawless in 2008, which co-starred Michael Caine.
Moore continued to tackle an interesting mix of projects. She had a role in the independent family drama Happy Tears with Parker Posey, Rip Torn, and Ellen Barkin, which was screened at the Berlin Film Festival in February 2009. In the 2010 noir action film, Bunraku, Moore appeared with Josh Hartnett and Ron Perlman. She also co-starred with David Duchovny in the offbeat drama The Joneses.
In 2011, Moore gave another impressive performance in the drama Margin Call, which starred Jeremy Irons, Kevin Spacey and Paul Bettany. She also expanded her work behind the camera that same year, signing a deal with the Lifetime cable network for several new projects.
In her personal life, Moore has recently had to cope with some difficult problems. In November 2011, she filed for divorce from husband Aston Kutcher in the wake of numerous reports that he had been unfaithful to her. At the time, she released a statement, saying "As a woman, a mother and a wife there are certain values and vows that I hold sacred, and it is in this spirit that I have chosen to move forward with my life."
In January 2012, Moore seemed to experiencing a personal crisis. She was taken to a Los Angeles hospital early in the year after suffering a seizure from inhaling nitrous oxide, according to TMZ. Moore herself has not publicly acknowledged the incident, but she did decide to seek help for some health issues. A spokesperson for the actress said that Moore planned to get "professional assistance to treat her exhaustion and improve her overall health." She also dropped out of the upcoming film Lovelace, about the famed porn star Linda Lovelace. Moore had signed on to play feminist Gloria Steinem.
