#AceHistoryNews says Julianne Moore (born 1960) is a British–American actress and children’s author. A prolific cinema actress for more than 20 years, Moore’s career has involved both art house and Hollywood films, and she is known for her emotional portrayals of ordinary women. She began on television in the 1980s, as a regular in As the World Turns, and then played supporting roles in films throughout the early 1990’s. Critically acclaimed performances in Short Cuts (1993) and Safe (1995), followed by starring roles in Nine Months (1995) and The Lost World: Jurassic Park (1997), established her as a leading Hollywood actress. In the late 1990’s and early 2000’s, Moore earned four Academy Award nominations, for Boogie Nights (1997), The End of the Affair (1999), Far from Heaven (2002), and The Hours (2002). Other notable appearances include The Big Lebowski (1998), Magnolia (1999), Hannibal (2001), and Children of Men (2006). She has continued to work regularly in the 2010’s, including acclaimed performances in The Kids Are All Right (2010) and the television film Game Change (2012), where she portrayed Sarah Palin.

Moore has also written a successful series of children’s books.

Julianne Moore is a four-time Academy Award-nominated actress and the New York Times best-selling author of three books about Freckleface Strawberry, a character inspired by her own childhood experiences. She is also an avid reader, a literacy advocate and the mother of two young readers.
