Demi Moore, 61, admits she 'didn't love' being part of the 'Brat Pack' as the label 'diminished' her early work… ahead of documentary about the 80s collective of up-and-coming actors SuperNayr

Demi Moore has confessed she ‘didn’t love’ being part of the ‘Brat Pack’. 

The Ghost star, 61, appeared on Wednesday night’s The Late Show With Stephen Colbert to discuss the upcoming Andrew McCarthy-led Hulu documentary about The Brat Pack and her feelings about the collective. 

The Brat Pack refers to a group of actors who appeared together in coming-of-age films in the 1980s and most of its members notably appeared in the 1985 John Hughes film The Breakfast Club and the 1985 Joel Schumacher film St. Elmo’s Fire. 

The documentary is based on the 2021 book Brat: An ’80s Story by the Brat Pack’s Andrew McCarthy, 61, who starred with Demi in St. Elmo’s Fire along with Rob Lowe, Emilio Estevez, Ally Sheedy, Judd Nelson, Mare Winningham and Andie MacDowell.

When asked how she felt about the group, she said: ‘I mean, It was very new to be doing stories about young people. I don’t think any of us really loved the moniker of being called brats. Because it kind of diminished our sense of being professionals.’

During an appearance of Good Morning America, Demi further discussed the film: ‘Andrew really wanted to explore the impact it had on each of us because for him, it actually had a big impact. For Rob [Lowe], it kind of just slid off his back…

‘For me, I didn’t love it, being thought of as a brat because I thought it kind of diminished us as professionals. But I didn’t carry it’. 

Demi referred to documentarian Andrew as ‘Andy’ on the talk show while talking about the documentary, but quickly corrected herself.

She said: ‘Andrew McCarthy! He’s gonna kill me. This doc is an exploration of what and how that affected each of us. Like, Rob, it just rolled off his back. He’s good that way. But for Andrew, it really affected him and things and choices he made’. 

Demi said she has not yet seen the documentary and was excited to see the show. She said: ‘I’m sorry that we didn’t get a chance to all be in the same room together after all this time’.

Back in May, Andrew posted a throwback image showing him and Demi side in St. Elmo’s Fire and a current day shot. 

He penned a caption reading: ‘So great to see (for the first time in years and years) my St. Elmo’s Fire co-star, the wondrous Demi Moore, and catch up for my Brat Pack documentary’. 

St Elmo’s Fire came out in 1985 and became an instant cult classic. It starred Demi’s boyfriend at the time, Emilio, as well as Ally, Judd and Rob.

Also in the cast was model turned actress Andie and acclaimed stage actress Mare. Demi played the privileged young woman who became distracted by drugs and heartbreak. The film is co-written and directed by Joel Schumacher.

Demi was on the CBS talk show to promote Feud: Capote vs. The Swans, which is the second season of the Feud anthology series.

She portrays showgirl and socialite Ann Woodward, who clashed with Capote after his unfinished novel Answered Prayers about New York society offended her.

She detailed: ‘He changes the names, but not enough that they don’t know. So the feud is essentially that they let him into the inner circle even though he was a bit of a court jester for their entertainment. And betrays them…

‘And so they set out to crush him. Now my character, Ann Woodward, was never accepted into society. She married into it. I am kind of his first target. Because I accidentally killed my husband’.

Stephen asked how she ‘accidentally’ killed her husband and Demi said it was an accidental shooting, but Capote called her ‘Bang Bang the Murderess’ in his excerpt.

Demi was shown in a clip confronting the writer who said the story was true and told her it would be an ‘interesting’ chapter. 

Feud: Capote vs. The Swans premiered on Wednesday on FX with its first two episodes with each being made available the next day on Hulu.

The eight-episode series is based on the book Capote’s Women: A True Story of Love, Betrayal, and a Swan Song for an Era by Laurence Leamer.

The series also stars Naomi Watts, Diane Lane, Chloë Sevigny, Treat Williams, fellow Brat Pack member Molly Ringwald and Tom Hollander as Capote.
