For most Hollywood actresses, a retinue of domestic staff is de rigeur. But Julianne Moore has disclosed that she likes nothing better than doing her own housework.
“I’m tremendously domestic. Shockingly domestic, in fact,” said the four-times Oscar-nominated actress. “Some people think that actresses tend not to be practical or domestic. That we’re very flighty and emotionally vulnerable. Trust me, I’m not like that.
“My house is very clean and organised. I’m not a great cook - my husband does most of the cooking. But I make a hot breakfast for my children every day, and I always put out place mats and napkins.”
Moore, 53, also refuses to take roles that will take her away from her children, Caleb, 16, and Liv, 11.
“If someone says to me, 'Will you do this film in Hungary?’ I just go, 'Sorry. If you can move it to New Jersey, then maybe it will work.”
Moore’s latest film is Non-Stop, a thriller set aboard a transatlantic jumbo jet and co-starring Liam Neeson. She is also appearing in the new Hunger Games film, after her children pleaded with her to take a role in the franchise based on the best-selling teen books.
