Julianne Moore: Gay Marriage Is Iimportant to Me
Gay marriage is "important" to Julianne Moore. The 52-year-old A Single Man actress is an avid human rights activist and sees herself as a "feminist" when it comes to her strong views on equality.
"Oh, yeah, absolutely [I'm a feminist]. At one point, 'feminist' became a pejorative term. How did that happen? If you're a feminist, you're basically saying you're a humanist. That's why the issue of gay marriage is so important to me. It's about everybody having the same shot at everything, at work, at marriage, at life."
Julianne - who recently took home the Best Actress in a Television Film Golden Globe for her role in Game Change - is also a mother of two to Caleb, 15, and 10-year-old Liv with husband Bart Freundlich and she loves how supportive her children are of her awards: "What's so sweet is, they're old enough now to have seen me nominated and lose a few times, but kids generally have a lot invested in people winning. They're always saying, 'Did you win?' And I'll say, 'No, but it's ok, I still had fun, it's an honor to be nominated.' The last time I lost a Globe, my daughter made me one in art class. In fact, I think she made me a Bafta as well, because I lost there that year, too."
