In a new interview with The EDIT, Julianne Moore is opening up on her life on-and-off camera.
Moore, whose career spans nearly three decades and eighty roles, has had her share of “outrageous”; on-screen moments, at least according to her kids. Her children with husband Bart Freundlich, Caleb, 18, and Liv, 14, have been most unaware of their mom’s career as the Oscar-winning actress isn’t the type to bring her work home with her.
“A couple of years ago I got an award, and they did one of those film clubs. My kids came and they had seen one or two of my movies, but they hadn’t seen them all, and they were shocked! Shocked!”; Moore recalled. “First of all, they were shocked that I had done so many movies, and then, that I seemed to be doing these outrageous things.”;
Some of those more “outrageous”; things include playing a veteran porn star in “Boogie Nights”; and appearing nude below-the-belt in “Short Cuts”;.
Next up, the actress will play the demanding ex-wife of Ethan Hawke in “Maggie’s Plan”;, a role that comes complete with an icy Danish accent – all Moore’s idea – and fur vests.
“I like [acting] more the older I get, and that has surprised me, because I’ve always been waiting for the other shoe to drop, the day I’ll be like, ‘I don’t want to do this anymore!'”; she says. “But instead, it’s more compelling tome. I like the act of figuring it out, I like learning things… Like right now, I’m playing a character who is deaf, so I’m learning about deaf culture and learning some very rudimentary sign language, and that’s exciting to me.”;
