Demi Moore is sharing her perspective of being in the Brat Pack.

The Ghost actress, who will feature in Brats, the upcoming Andrew McCarthy-led Hulu documentary centered around the young group of actors who ruled Hollywood during the 80’s, revealed that she wasn’t too fond of the nickname.

“Andrew really wanted to explore the impact it had on each of us because for him, it actually had a big impact,” Moore, 61, shared on Good Morning America. “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,” she added. “But I didn’t carry it.”

McCarthy gathered some of his former costars and other actors including, Ally Sheedy and Emilio Estevez, for the documentary. Moore said he had called her to be a part of the documentary, and admitted that despite not having “seen it yet,” she enjoyed taking a walk down memory lane.

“I really enjoyed my time with him sitting down and reminiscing,” Moore said of chatting with McCarthy, whom she starred with in 1985’s St. Elmo’s Fire. “And I was only sorry [all the actors] didn’t get a chance to all be together at one time. That would be, really, a treat, actually.”

The actress also discussed how the Brat Pack nickname got famous in the 80’s and its long-lasting effect.

“It’s really interesting cause you know, the Brat Pack moniker that came about really didn’t have anything to do with us as people, as professionals,” she said. “It was just a clever headline.”

In the new documentary, McCarthy — who became an acclaimed travel writer and dabbled in television directing after his run as a Brat Pack member — even chats with David Blum, the New York Magazine writer who crafted the group’s nickname in 1985.

He previously told PEOPLE that he “wasn’t even there” when Blum spent the night with some of the actors and coined the term. “It was just like boom, there it is. And I recoiled from it. The term was cast in a very pejorative way. And the last thing you want in Hollywood is to be boxed in," he said.

In a statement about the documentary, McCarthy said, “The Brat Pack has cast a long shadow over my life and career. After all these years, I was curious to see how it had affected my fellow Brat Pack members. What I found was surprising — and liberating.”

The film will explore “how the label caused a frenzy and impacted each of [the actors], personally and professionally,” per Deadline.

Brats will stream sometime in 2024.
