Hollywood may not be clamoring to make films geared toward women over the age of 40, but Julianne Moore is doing her best to convince those Tinseltown executives of their folly.
Two weeks ago, she won a Golden Globe for her performance in “Still Alice” as a woman diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer’s. On stage, she said that Cape Cod author Lisa Genova, whose book the film is based on, told her no one in Hollywood wanted to make a movie about a middle-age woman, much less one suffering from a degenerative disease.
Less than 48 hours after her victory, Moore is nestled on a plush sofa at the Crosby Street Hotel in SoHo, cracking wise and elaborating on what she hinted at in her speech.
“I do think that there is a section of the market that’s being neglected. Because I think that there are plenty of women who want to go to the movies, and there are plenty of women who want to see movies about other women. I know I do!” said the actress, her freckled alabaster skin looking as luminous as ever.
While the current state of the movie business means a dearth of plum parts for actresses over the age of 40, Moore has continued to work steadily — and her career is hitting yet another peak.
In the spring, she wowed Cannes Film Festival audiences (and pocketed the best actress prize) as toxic gorgon Havana Segrand, a neurotic fading actress, in David Cronenberg’s pitiless Hollywood satire “Maps to the Stars,” due out next month. She recently starred as President Alma Coin in “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay.” And she continues to earn raves for her heartbreaking turn in “Still Alice,” written and directed by Richard Glatzer and Wash Westmoreland, which just opened in Boston. Last week, she picked up her fifth Academy Award nomination and is the clear frontrunner to take home the gold on Oscar night, with pundits remarking she is long overdue (she was nominated twice in 2002 alone, for “Far From Heaven” and “The Hours”).
She now boasts five Academy Award nominations, recent Golden Globe andCritics’ Choice Award wins and another SAG nod. But for Julianne Moore, family still outweighs it all.
The Oscar nominee, 54, shared sweet remarks about her director husband Bart Freundlich and children Caleb, 17, and Liv, 12, after being honored by the Museum of the Moving Image in New York City on Tuesday.
“When I read the script for [The Myth of Fingerprints], I met Bart Freundlich. I loved it, and I loved his story,” she said, glowing at the podium in a gold sequin dress. “But I never, ever, ever in my life imagined that making that movie would give me the personal life that I always dreamed of.”
And Freundlich, who sat with arms around his daughter and son while listening to Moore’s speech, wasn’t shy when he shared his mutual feelings.
“I’ve known her for 20 years, been married to her for 11, had kids with her for 17, directed her 3 times. We have two dogs,” he began.
“I’ve been with her through numerous sunburns, four Oscar ceremonies – five to come – a colonoscopy and her Broadway debut,” he continued. “The last two were equally as uncomfortable for her!”
After a good laugh and speeches from famous friends including Ellen Barkin,Chloë Grace Moretz and Sarah Paulson, Moore thanked the room and her family once more.
“When I received the star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame last year, I made a lot of jokes to my family about how I don’t need a tombstone now. Now I feel like I don’t need a memorial service either,” she said.
Moore has chosen her roles in order to stay present in her family life, she recently told PEOPLE.
“My family makes me most happy,” she said. “It would be miserable without them.”

Julianne Moore isn’t just the frontrunner for best actress at this year’s Oscars, she’s also helping design the backstage green room.
Architectural Digest announced Tuesday that the”Still Alice” star will consult on the room’s look and help choose furniture and decor for the celebrity enclave.
Moore, 54, says she “knows what it’s like to be backstage on Oscar night” and is thrilled to help decorate the stars-only hangout. The garden of her New York home appeared in a 2012 issue of the magazine.
The actress — a five-time Oscar nominee — will collaborate with Los Angeles-based design collective Commune, tapped to create Architectural Digest’s annual namesake green room at the Academy Awards.
The Oscars will be presented at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood on Feb. 22 and broadcast live on ABC.
The gallery was updated with loads of production stills and one poster from Still Alice. Enjoy them!
