Julianne Moore gets star on Hollywood 'Walk of Fame'
LOS ANGELES, USA - American actress Julianne Moore received the 2,507th star on Hollywood Boulevard's "Walk of Fame" Thursday, October 3, during a ceremony surrounded by colleagues from her film career.
Wearing a yellow dress and white heels, Moore unveiled her star, located opposite Hollywood's historic Pantages Theatre, one week before the release of her latest film "Carrie," a remake of the classic 1976 horror by Brian de Palma (adapted from Stephen King's novel).
"Growing up, it never even occurred to me that it was possible to be an actor for a living," said the 52-year-old critically-acclaimed actress.
"But I did it because my favorite thing to do was read and it was a way for me to imagine that I was in the book and I loved it," Moore said.
Jay Roach, director of the HBO television movie "Game Change," was among those present on Hollywood Boulevard to honor the star.
Moore's performance as US vice-presidential hopeful Sarah Palin in the 2012 film won her an Emmy Award for best TV movie actress.
Roach said that, working alongside Moore, "everybody has to step it up. Everyone has to work much harder And she's not pushing people or trying to control everything. She's just collaborative and patient and generous."
"The only downside to working with Julianne Moore is that you become addicted to working with Julianne Moore," Roach said.
Actor-director Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who stars with Moore in "Don Jon," said, "She's not faking it when she's performing. She's feeling what the character is feeling. It's a very difficult thing to do."
Nominated 4 times for an Oscar, Moore has nearly 60 films under her belt, including "Boogie Nights," "The Big Lebowski," "Magnolia," "Hannibal," "The Hours," "Far from Heaven," "Son of Man," and "Crazy, Stupid, Love." - Rappler.com
