Career

Moore moved to New York City in 1983, working as a waitress before being cast in the dual roles of Frannie Hughes and Sabrina Hughes on the soap opera "As the World Turns", for which she won a Daytime Emmy Award; she played the roles from 1985 to 1988. In 1987 she was part of the junior company in the New York premiere of Caryl Churchill's "Serous Money" at the Public Theater. Because of Screen Actors Guild rules, she had to change her name, since there were already actresses named "Julie Smith" and "Julianne Smith". She chose her father's middle name, "Moore", but because there was already another actress named "Julie Moore", she finally settled on "Julianne Moore."

Moore began starring in feature films in the early 1990s, mostly appearing in supporting roles in films like "The Hand That Rocks the Cradle," "Benny and Joon," and "The Fugitive." Her part in 1993's "Short Cuts" gained her critical acclaim and recognition, and she was cast in several high-profile Hollywood films, including 1995's romantic comedy "Nine Months," and 1997's summer blockbuster "." Her role in the well-reviewed independent film "Safe" also attracted critical attention.

During the late 1990s and early 2000s, Moore appeared in a series of films that received Oscar recognition, including her roles in "Boogie Nights" (Best Supporting Actress nomination), "The End of the Affair" (Best Actress nomination) and her two 2002 films, "Far From Heaven" (Best Actress nomination) and "The Hours" (Best Supporting Actress nomination). During this period, she also appeared in the commercial successes "Hannibal" (replacing Jodie Foster as Clarice Starling) and "The Forgotten", in Paul Thomas Anderson's follow-up to "Boogie Nights", "Magnolia", and in the Coen Brothers cult hit, "The Big Lebowski".

Her film "Freedomland" opened in February 2006 to mixed reviews. [ [http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/freedomland/ Freedomland Movie Reviews, Pictures - Rotten Tomatoes ] ] Another film, "Trust the Man," is directed by her husband, Bart Freundlich, and also features her son, Caleb. In March 2006, it was announced Moore would make her Broadway debut in the world premiere of David Hare's new play "The Vertical Hour". The play opened in November 2006 and was directed by Sam Mendes. [cite news|title= Julianne Moore to Star in Hare's The Vertical Hour on Broadway in Fall|author=Robert Simonson|work=Playbill News|date=March 22, 2006|url=http://www.playbill.com/news/article/98620.html|accessdate=2006-03-27] Also in 2006, Moore appeared as Julian Taylor in the film "Children of Men". She most recently appeared opposite Nicolas Cage and Jessica Biel in "Next," a science fiction action film based on "The Golden Man," a short story by Philip K. Dick; and the controversial incest film "Savage Grace". 2008 saw the premiere at Cannes and the Toronto Film Festival of "Blindness", a thriller from director Fernando Meirelles, starring Moore and Mark Ruffalo.

In October 2007, she published her first children's picture book, entitled "Julianne More: All About Me". [ [http://www.amazon.com/Freckleface-Strawberry-Julianne-Moore/dp/1599901072 Amazon.com: Freckleface Strawberry: Julianne Moore,LeUyen Pham: Books ] ]
