Demi Moore curses at audience member while introducing Cher at Cannes gala: 'I f---ing don't think so'

Demi Moore curses at audience member while introducing Cher at Cannes gala: 'I f---ing don't think so'

"Are YOU an Emmy winner?" she asked before the festival's tribute to the icon.

Do you believe in life after being publicly cursed out by Demi Moore?  

The actress, who stars in the upcoming buzzy Cannes film The Substance, was in the middle of introducing Cher at the amfAR Cinema Against AIDS Cannes Gala on Thursday evening when she suddenly paused her speech to call out at an unknown audience member.

In video footage from the event posted on social media, Moore seems to be trying to rally the crowd while standing on stage at the Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc in Cap d’Antibes, France. 

“I’m gonna see if this is the moment we’ve all been waiting for,” she says. “I’m just making sure that you’re really, really with me, because this incredible woman that I’m about to introduce, she’s a Grammy winner, an Oscar winner, an Emmy winner.”

Dressed in a sparkling silver gown, Moore then halts her introduction to address what seems to be an audience member she thinks isn't paying enough attention.

“Are you an Emmy winner — over there in the back of the room?” she asks, before shaking her head and answering, “I f---ing don’t think so."

After scattered applause from the rest of the crowd, Moore went on to describe Cher as both a “style icon” and her “personal hair inspiration” (she sported long straight hair that recalled Cher's in the 1970s). However, she ended up having to pause her tribute for a second time just moments later.

"The bottom line is, she’s just one of the most talented, successful, and best-loved performers of all time. So please…” Moore said, before stopping and giving a lingering, pointed stare into the audience. “Please give a warm welcome to the incredible, one and only Cher!”
