Hundreds of thousands of people went to the Woodstock music festival in 1969, but how many people can say they met their significant other while they were there? Judy and Jerry Griffin met when Jerry’s friends stopped to pick up Judy while she was hitchhiking after her car broke down. Judy was unsure about riding with Jerry’s friends, but after she hopped in the VW Beetle she and Jerry made fast friends. Judy told People

I was just thinking, ‘Damn, now we can’t go,’ and we were dying to. Then Jerry and his friends pulled up. I stuck my head in and I saw that there was a woman in the car. I’d never hitchhiked before, but I figured, ‘Well, since there was a woman, it was fairly safe, and I probably should just get in the car.’

That ride culminated in a 50 year marriage, two sons, and five grandchildren. However it wasn’t until 2019 when the two found this photo that was taken of them at the festival. They’d known each other for less than 48 hours when the photo was taken.

Before she was setting hearts on fire and stunning audiences in films like Ghost and A Few Good Men, Demi Moore worked for the Elite Modeling Agency in Europe. Most of her work consisted of pin-up shoots, but one spread for Oui magazine may have been a little too risqué. She claims that the photo shoot where she bares all was taken after she lied about her age, and that she was 16 at the time of the shoot.

At the time, Moore was desperate to get into the business and did whatever she had to in order to get her face out there. The photos were mostly forgotten until they showed up in Celebrity Sleuth in the late ‘80s. Moore didn’t let the creepy members of the press stop her momentum.
