Demi Moore. Why?

Demi Moore.

You're sure? It's not a lesser brunette celebrity who resembles her at this angle?

I saved this picture without identifying who it was. My assumption was that it was some supporting actress on one of the less distinguished 80s network action series.

I've done image searches for Demi Moore and never come across this in that context.

2nding Demi, look at the eyes.

If anyone can link to a page that labels it as such, that would settle the matter for me. Thanks in advance.

One thing I do with photos of people I sorta recognize, but who have different hairstyles or facial hair (not you, Demi) is to close one eye, make an O with my thumb and forefinger, and look through the O to the face, blocking out all the rest.

People can change the extras, but apart from major cosmetic surgery, the eyes and nose can give away a lot.

This is Demi Moore. I don't think your picture is.

apart from major cosmetic surgery

Demi Moore has had major cosmetic surgery.

The fact that TinEye has nothing implies that it probably isn't Demi Moore. It's pretty easy to find most publicity shots of major international celebrities who've been famous for decades. Some fan site would have it, at least.

In fact, the fact that TinEye returns nothing implies that it probably isn't anyone who is famous as of the internet age, at all.

You can contact this person, who appears to be the source of that image.

Kim Delaney circa All My Children days?

Based on the style of the workout clothes and the makeup I would put this pic at mid 80s - and Demi was much more cherubic at the time, but in the early 90s she was a bit slimmer. I vote not Demi, but anything is possible.

That being said - the watermark on the image shows up as an eBay seller. Why not contact him/her and see if he/she knows anything more. (on preview - what vidur said)

For whatever it's worth as anecdotal evidence, my attention was drawn to the picture by the aerobics wear. Had I seen it identified as a picture of Demi Moore, I think I would have found that memorably surprising.

Friends, do not waste your time poring over movieheaven1968's inventory. Just trust me on that.

(Meanwhile, I thought it might be Jessica Lange, but now that I've spent a lot of time looking at Jessica Lange photos... I don't really quite think so anymore.)

The seller says it is Terry Jones. I don't see it in his current listings, or in previous listings, but he says he has some copies with her in that outfit.

Not Demi Moore.

Umm ... How can I say this and not sound like a sexist dork?

At the time those fashions were in style, Demi's tits were not that big. Check out "About Last Night" to see what I mean.

There, I said it.
