Donning the trademark eyeglasses and up 'do, Julianne Moore is proving she’s more than all right as former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin.

The The Kids Are All Right actress, 50, has transformed herself into the politician, 47, for the new HBO film, Game Change, which begins production Wednesday.

Costarring Ed Harris as John McCain, the film follows the Arizona U.S. Senator's 2008 presidential campaign from his selection of Palin as a running mate to their defeat in the general election. Woody Harrelson portrays Steve Schmidt, McCain's senior advisor. Lost's Melissa Farman has also been cast as Bristol Palin.

The film, directed by Jay Roach and written by Danny Strong, is based on the bestselling book of the same name. Tom Hanks and Gary Goetzman are executive producers.

Balancing motherhood and a sex life is no simple task for Julianne Moore.

"I think [to feel sexy,] you need to be away from your children," the actress, 50, told Tom Ford when he interviewed her for March's InStyle cover story. "Doing the mommy stuff does sort of squash that area of your life.

Julianne Moore: I Got Married for My Kids

Getting married to Bart Freundlich was never a priority for Julianne Moore, until she thought about how their kids would feel about it.

"The only reason I got married in 2003 was for my children," the actress, 50, tells the British newspaper the Guardian. "I had a therapist who said marriage is really a container for a family, and that made sense to me."

Moore and Freundlich had already been together for years and had two young kids – Caleb, now 13, and Liv, 8 – by the time they wed.

Who Was Snubbed Most by the Oscars?

Originally posted 01/25/2011 11:15AM

It's the downside of the Oscar nominations – the disappointment felt by those who were overlooked despite critically acclaimed performances.

This year is no different, with five actors and actresses in particular notably missing from the list of nominees – Andrew Garfield (The Social Network); Ryan Gosling (Blue Valentine); Mila Kunis (Black Swan); Julianne Moore (The Kids Are All Right); and Mark Wahlberg (The Fighter).

Interestingly, all five saw a costar (or in Wahlberg's case, three costars) earn a nomination: Michelle Williams (Blue Valentine); Natalie Portman (Black Swan); Jesse Eisenberg (The Social Network); Annette Bening (The Kids Are All Right); and Amy Adams, Christian Bale and Melissa Leo (all for The Fighter).

So, tell us who was most overlooked?

Like many couples, Julianne Moore doesn't always have time for a weekly date night with her husband, Bart Freundlich.

"That's kind of impossible," the actress and children's book author told PEOPLE at the opening night of Freckleface Strawberry – the musical based on her book of the same name – on Friday in New York City.

"I admire people who manage that. We try to get out when we can," Moore, 49, adds. "We're like any other couple. It’s always difficult."

"I think at the end of the day, the most important thing really is your family," she continues.

Amanda Seyfried: Love Scene with Julianne Moore Was Risky

Originally posted 03/17/2010 07:00AM

In Chloe, Julianne Moore's character hires a prostitute played by Amanda Seyfried to tempt her possibly cheating husband (Liam Neeson). What ensues is a much-buzzed-about sex scene between the two women. So how did the actors prepare to lose their inhibitions? Tequila shots? Group therapy? Turns out it was all pretty technical.

"Was it different because it was [with] a girl? No," Moore told reporters in New York Monday about her onscreen tryst with Seyfried. "Whenever you have an intimate scene with somebody, you're very prepared. Everyone knows exactly what's happening and it's usually very choreographed ... Amanda and I were comfortable with each other."

Moore, 49, went on to call her 24-year-old costar "lovely" and "quite impressive." But it wasn't such a clear-cut call for Seyfried, who admits to being so "intimidated" she tried to back out of the movie.

Dennis Quaid, Julianne Moore Aim for White House

Originally posted 03/25/2009 10:05AM

They both walked the red carpet in the 1990s, so maybe Dennis Quaid and Julianne Moore will have an easier time acting as if they're at the Clinton White House.

The actors will portray Bill and Hillary Clinton in an HBO movie titled Special Relationship, Variety reports. The film, featuring Michael Sheen in yet another turn as former British prime minister Tony Blair – as he did in the 2006 movie The Queen – will focus on the political relationship between president and prime minister.

The film is to be directed by Peter Morgan, who also wrote The Queen. No start to filming or proposed airdate has been determined as yet.
