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."
Julianne Moore has had $125,000 worth of jewelry stolen from her home.
The Single Man actress - who recently won an Emmy for her portrayal of Republican vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin in TV movie Game Change - lost items including a $33,000 Cartier bracelet and four Cartier watches from her house in New York's West Village during the summer. The items disappeared between early June and late August, but were not noticed as Julianne and her husband Bart Freundlich were away from the property while it was being renovated.
Bob Gibson, a resident on Julianne's block, said he was sad to hear of what happened. "It's sad to hear something like this happened to one of your neighbors. She's a very good neighbor. That's how I see her," he told The New York Daily News.
The items were not secured, and the theft was reported on October 1 by one of Julianne's assistants. Police are believed to be questioning workers who were hired to do the maintenance in the five-story house, which included decorating and plumbing. However, no arrests have as yet been made.

Next week, eBay will feature hand-me-down items from a list of Hollywood celebrities. The gently-used pieces (at least, I hope they’re gently-used) are being donated in hopes of raising money for several children’s charities. Organizations benefitting from the proceeds will include the March of Dimes and Save the Children.
Come April 29, interested parties can bid on one of Matt Damon‘s former messenger-style baby bags, a high chair of Julianne Moore’s and an Adidas track suit worn by Mariska Hargitay’s son. Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Jeri Ryan are several of the other stars contributing to the cause.
Those wanting to participate can find more information here.
