The taste of others

Julianne Moore acquired this passion for human beings in the world early on, while her family moved with her military father’s deployment; As a child I loved books and fiction. This, combined with my fascination with the way people live, led me to acting. »

For him, the most beautiful stories are not necessarily extraordinary destinies. “Of course we make movies about astronauts or queens. But our life is not always a story. Even when they are ordinary, they are incredibly exciting. Our relationships with others, with our children, walking with our dog… All this is interesting.

Elevate the routine

A double hat admired by his senior. “The world is changing, women’s expectations are changing. There are more things they feel weak to do. Today, they no longer hesitate to take advantage of certain opportunities. It’s great to see these talents emerging who can tell their stories the way they want to. »

Another progressive revolution that Julianne Moore welcomes. the place of women in the film industry. “Everything has changed a lot since I started. Especially in terms of durability. we’re finally starting to see women, on screen, in all stages of their lives. Meryl Streep said this in her speech (at the opening of the Cannes Film Festival. Editor’s noteHe thought his career would be over at age 40. There are more female directors, cinematographers and women in technical groups.
