Demi Moore's disappointing do

Demi Moore’s disappointing do — Is the actress’ tresses in ”The Scarlet Letter” responsible for the film’s flop?

Posted on

Conventional wisdom says Demi Moore’s The Scarlet Letter failed at the box office because it’s a strange adaptation of a literary classic. But we have another theory: The key to Demi’s success is the length of her locks. Look at the facts: She wore a stylish pixie in Ghost (1990), and the grosses went out of this world; she flaunted messy long tresses in Scarlet, and Letter was canceled at the box office. ”I don’t buy it,” says a spokesman for the actress. ”Moviegoers love Demi Moore whether her hair is long or short.” Still, perhaps Moore should take a look at the evidence before deciding on a coif for the upcoming Striptease.
