It's a milestone birthday for actress Demi Moore. The star, who rose to fame from her days as part of the 1980s acting group known as the Brat Pack, turned 50 years old on November 11. The celebration is a bit of welcome news for Demi, who has had a difficult year since her last birthday. The "St. Elmo's Fire" star split from husband Ashton Kutcher last November, and also had a brief stint in rehab earlier this year. Demi has looked good in recent appearances, so hopefully that is a sign that her struggles are behind her. With stories of a Monte Carlo getaway with some pals, it's easy to guess that Demi had a wonderful birthday. She is just the latest star to celebrate a 50th birthday in 2012. Stars like Tom Cruise and Jim Carrey have already joined the club, and several more stars will do so later this month. Here are a few other celebs that will turn 50 in November.
With two Oscars to her name, Jodie has bucked the trend of child stars struggling to find fame as adults. Jodie will turn 50 on November 19, and it might be surprising to some to know that she is that young. Maybe that's because she appeared in dozens of roles before she attended Yale, and her career has flourished ever since. Though she has cut back on her workload, Jodie continues to work in movies both in front of and behind the cameras.
The comedian will turn 50 on November 28, about three months after friend and former "Daily Show" colleague Steve Carell reached the milestone. The funnyman, who has become a major voice in media politics, has plenty to keep him busy. In addition to his award-winning show on Comedy Central, Jon is also happily married with two young children. On top of that, you never know when he might pop up in another movie role.
Demi isn't the only Brat Pack star to turn 50 this month. On November 29, her "St. Elmo's Fire" co-star will celebrate the big birthday. The actor, whose other notable credits include "Weekend at Bernie's" and "Mannequin," hasn't been able to recapture the fame he had in the 1980s. However, he has appeared in a number of TV shows and movies over the years. In addition, Andrew had some big personal news when he married his second wife Dolores Rice in 2011.
