CinemaCon interview

Interview0 Comments

Moore criticizes releasing films simultaneously in cinemas and to on-demand services.

A movie never looks the same on television…We work very hard as creators in creating a theatrical experience.

Moore also says making independent films has boosted her career.

Working in the indie space has helped my career longevity. All of my successes – including my Oscar – sprung from these teeny tiny movies…The great parts are not going to come to you on a silver platter. You need a commercial profile so that investors will invest in something smaller that I’m in. [But] You can’t make a living doing just indie films. Hollywood isn’t in the business of creating parts for actors. They’re in the business of creating product. It’s about making a package.

o-JULIANNE-MOORE-570Moore appears on the cover of April 2014 issue of Harper’s Bazaar. She talks about her style sense, parenting her children and aging.

The older you get, you have a clearer understanding about what you care about, what you value, and you begin to think laterally and not vertically. Who are these people around me; let me try to experience this. That’s what makes everything more valuable and more interesting.

Wins best actress

Oscar0 Comments

Moore wins the Oscar for best actress for her portrayal of an Alzheimer’s sufferer in Still Alice.

I’m so happy, I’m thrilled that we were able to shine a light on Alzheimer’s disease. So many people who have this disease feel marginalized. People who have Alzheimer’s disease deserve to be seen so we can find a cure.

Still Alice

Film Appearance0 Comments

Moore plays Alice Howland, a professor of linguistics who is diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer’s disease in this drama written and directed by Richard Glatzer and Wash Westmoreland. The film is based upon Lisa Genova’s novel of the same name. Co-starring Alec Baldwin, Kristen Stewart, Kate Bosworth, and Hunter Par. Sandly Oltz, who had been diagnosed with Early Onset Alzheimer’s at age 47, gave tips from her own life about how to cope with the disease:

[Moore] would just ask questions like, ‘What does it feel like to have Alzheimer’s?’ I would say, ‘Well, it’s like all these words [are here] and you can’t find the right one.’

One of the most important things I tell my children is that content matters. Who you are, what you think, who you are going to become, how you behave, all of those things really add up to being a valuable person. The outside is great, obviously, but it all really does come from within.

Swank, Moore, Dern, Arquette, Witherspoon, Adams, and Jones appear on the cover of a November 2014 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine. They talk about their bravest moments as an actress and if their children became actors. Witherspoon:

It’s a wonderful business. I feel like I’ve seen the world. I’ve met amazing people. I used to have all these regrets; I didn’t finish college. And about a year ago it was like, “Why would I regret not finishing college?” I’ve had a wonderful life and I’ve been everywhere and I’ve gotten to work with creative people and tell stories. That’s all I ever wanted to do. So if [my kids] wanted to do it, I’d be very encouraging. I do think it’s hard. I would definitely illuminate all the difficulties. But my kids don’t seem to gravitate toward it anyway. So we’ll see.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1


Moore plays President Alma Coin in this sci-fi drama from the book by Suzanne Collins, directed by Francis Lawrence. Initially the leader of District 13, Coin becomes President of Panem after the Capital takeover. Co-starring Jennifer Lawrence, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Josh Hutcherson, and Liam Hemsworth. Moore speaks of her impression of Alma Coin after reading the books:

…she’s only spoken about from Katniss’s point of view, and Katniss immediately distrusts her in the way that sometimes a younger person will distrust an older person who’s not familiar to them or is in a position of authority.

Maps to the Stars


Moore plays Havana Segrand, a fading actress, in this drama directed by David Cronenberg. Havana, bitter and isolated, lives in anger and denial at her legendary movie star mother. Co-starring John Cusack, Mia Wasikowska, and Robert Pattinson. On her character:

I wouldn’t say she’s a monster, although it’s true she does behave monstrously at times. She’s one of these creatures that are very common in our industry, in that all of her self-worth and affirmation is projected from outside as opposed to inside. And the longer you live that kind of lifestyle, the more empty you become, until there comes a point when you just implode.

I never

this, I really didn’t. I’m thrilled and shocked to be included in this community on the Walk of Fame. And I am even more gratified that my pursuit of the imaginary has led to so much real life for me. So many people here today have been my partners, collaborators, supporters, and friends, and I have gained so much from my relationships with you.

What Maisie Knew


Moore plays Susanna, a rock star, in this drama directed by Scott McGehee and David Siegel and adapted for the screen by Nancy Doyne and Carroll Cartwright from the 1897 Henry James novel of the same name.  Susanna lives with Beale, an art dealer, but as middle age ennui begins setting in, they separate and spark a tug-of-war over their daughter, Maisie. Co-starring Steve Coogan and Alexander Skarsgard. Moore speaks on Susanna:

What’s interesting to me about Susanna as a mother, particularly, is how inconsistent she is. You see how much she loves this child, and how much she would like to be able to parent this child — and then her own inability to do it.

Game Change

Film Appearance0 Comments

Moore plays Sarah Palin, Republican nominee for Vice President of the United States in the 2008 Presidential election, in this drama written for the screen by Danny Strong and directed by Jay Roach.  Palin, the Governor of Alaska, is tapped by John McCain’s campaign to join him as his Vice President candidate. Co-starring Woody Harrelson, Sarah Paulson, and Ed Harris.

To play a historical figure is one thing. To play a living historical figure deepens the challenge. But to play a culturally significant, very prominent, living figure, that kind of put it over the top.
