Award-winning actress Julianne Moore may be used to the glitz and glamor of Hollywood, but she can still appreciate life’s little joys.
“My son made his bed this morning and I couldn’t believe it,” the shocked star tells The Times Online in a recent interview. “Every day I’m like, ‘Make-your-bed, make-your-bed.’”
Mom to son Cal, 12, and daughter Liv, 7, Julianne says that she and her husband Bart Freundlich try hard to keep their kids grounded.
“The kids go to a Quaker school and their father and I believe a lot in community and making sure you give to people less fortunate than you. We talk about responsibility a lot.”
Though they’re aware of mom’s celebrity status, Julianne explains, “I think they see it as separate from me. I always say, ‘I’m not on the cover because I’m famous. It’s because it’s my job, I’m in a movie.’ I stress work and accomplishment and not celebrity.”
The 49-year-old star of A Single Man says that she never doubted that she would one day be a mom.
“That was the one thing I knew I would do, that I would have children. And it was a pretty acute desire. The funny thing is I was determined to have a baby by the time I was 36. My son was born the day after my 37th birthday. He was three weeks late. It was like the universe was laughing, saying, ‘You see, you can’t control things.’”
Next up for Julianne is the thriller Chloe, co-starring Liam Neeson and Amanda Seyfried.
