* Julianne says this about her school days: "In grade school, I was a complete geek. You know, there's always the kid who's too short, the kid who wears thick glasses, the kid who's not athletic. Well, I was all three. I never went on dates and guys were afraid of me because I was smart. So I got contact lenses, started to dress a little better and tried not to talk about Plato with boys. It worked!"

This contest is fueled by the following news: Julianne Moore (born - Julie Anne Smith, December 3, 1960, Fayetteville, North Carolina) is an American actress, four-time nominee for the Academy Award, winner at the Berlin Film Festival, and three times laureate at the Venice Film Festival. Biography: Julianne Moore was born on December 3, 1960 in Fayetteville, North Carolina. The father of the future actress, Peter Moore Smith, was a military judge and her mother, Anne Love, was busy with her social work as a psychiatrist. Moore was the eldest child in the family and she has a younger sister, Valerie and a brother, Peter Moore Smith Jr. Through her childhood, the family spent relocating from one place to another. Moore attended Frankfurt American High School, Frankfurt, Germany and after she completed high school, she took attended the College of Fine Arts at Boston University in 1979. In 1983, she received a bachelor's degree and moved to New York, where Julie Anne Smith became Julianne Moore: in the Screen Actors Guild, she found her name already existing and hence, Moore had to think of another screen name. The actress was married twice: first to John Gould Rubin (1986-1995) and currently to director Bart Freundlich (the couple have been living together since 1996 but the marriage took place in August, 2003). Moore is older than her husband by 9 years. Moore & Freundlich have two children: a son called Caleb (born on December 4, 1997) and a daughter called Liv Helen (born on April 11, 2002). Career: Julianne Moore is considered as a leading American character actress, who is capable of working in mainstream cinema as well as essaying roles in low-budget stand-alone film productions. Moore has always been distinguished by her audacity in choosing her roles. In New York, Moore started working as waitress in restaurants and for quite a long time performed exclusively on Broadway and in television on the serial "As the World Turns" (where she had more than two heroines). For the serial, in which she acted from 1985 to 1988, Moore received a Daytime Emmy Award as the best actress in a daytime serial. The 1980s were typical for her career with abundant Television films, which are now forgotten. Moore debuted on the big screen in a cameo role as the victim of a mummy in the movie "Tales from the Darkside" in 1990. After that, the actress began appearing in small supporting roles in notable films such as "The Hand That Rocks the Cradle" (1992), "Short Cuts (1993)," Body of Evidence" as well as in a small role in the big production house and critical hit film "The Fugitive" with Harrison Ford. The role Moore played in "The Fugitive" impressed Steven Spielberg and after three years, the famous director signed Moore for the sequel of film "Jurassic Park". In the mid 1990's, Julianne Moore, along with the star cast of the movie "Short Cuts", directed by Robert Altman, received a special prize at the "Golden Globe" awards ceremony and a little earlier the Volpi Cup for best star cast at the Venice Film Festival. During this period, Moore performed well in roles both in high-profile Hollywood comedy films like "Nine Months" (the pregnant girlfriend of hero Hugh Grant), the thriller "Assassins" (with Sylvester Stallone in the title role) as well as in low-budget films. Among them, the thriller "Safe" by Todd Haynes tasted huge success. Moore portrayed the role of a woman in the film, who suddenly starts suffering from allergies to her entire surroundings. Also Quasi-Chekhov's screen version of, "Vanya on 42nd Street" by Louis Malle and the drama "Surviving Picasso", where Moore portrayed Dora Maar. Career take-off: One year after the box-office success of Steven Spielberg's film "The Lost World: Jurassic Park (with worldwide box office takings of over $600 million), young and little known director Paul Thomas Anderson approached Julianne Moore and offered her one of the leading roles in his film about the porn industry abroad in 1970-80's "Boogie Nights". Her first impressions after going through the script were shock due to the abundance of semi-pornographic scenes which involved her character, but Moore was so impressed by the quality of story and script, that she immediately agreed to be part of the movie. That decision proved to be right and the role of Amber Waves, porn star, drug addict and at the same time a loving mother too made Julianne Moore a real popular movie actress and fetched her a nomination for an "Oscar" and a "Golden Globe". The role of Moore in "Boogie Nights" reinforced her status as a leading actress, who is ready to do bold experiments with characters, amongst the audience and critics. Subsequently, she had repeatedly reaffirmed her glory in many more varied roles in films. The film "The Big Lebowski" by the Coen brothers was released in 1998, in the same year where she portrays the role of an artist - feminist, painting pictures using her vagina and appearing in fantasy by protagonist Jeff Bridges as Valkyrie.
