• Julianne Moore Receives Star on Hollywood Walk of Fame

    HOLLYWOOD (CNS) – Actress Julianne Moore received the 2,507th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame today, honoring a career that has included four Oscar nominations and Primetime and Daytime Emmys.

    Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who directed and co-starred with Moore in the romantic comedy-drama “Don Jon,” and Jay Roach, who directed Moore in her Emmy-winning performance as 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin in the 2012 made-for-television movie “Game Change,” were among those joining Moore at the ceremony next to the W Hollywood Hotel on Hollywood Boulevard.

    The ceremony came 15 days before the release of Moore’s latest movie, the re-adaptation of the Stephen King novel “Carrie.” Moore plays the mother of a shy outcast (Chloe Grace Moretz) who unleashes telekinetic terror on her small town after being pushed too far at her senior prom.

    Born Julie Anne Smith on Dec. 3, 1960, in Fayetteville, N.C., Moore spent the early years of her life in more than two dozen locations around the world following her father, a military judge.

    Moore graduated from Boston University in 1983 and moved to New York City, working extensively on stage. She was a cast member on the CBS daytime drama “As the World Turns” from 1985 to 1988, receiving an outstanding ingenue Daytime Emmy in 1988 for her portrayal of half-sisters Frannie and Sabrina Hughes.

    Moore then appeared in several made-for-television movies. She made her film debut in the 1990 release “Tales from the Darkside: The Movie.”

    Moore received the first of her Oscar nominations in 1998 as best supporting actress for her portrayal of porn star Amber Waves in “Boogie Nights.” In 2000, she received a best actress nomination for “The End of the Affair.”

    In 2003, Moore became the ninth person to receive two acting nominations in the same year, a best actress nomination for “Far From Heaven” and a best supporting actress nomination for “The Hours.”

    Moore’s extensive list of film credits include “Crazy, Stupid, Love, ” “The Kids Are All Right,” “A Single Man,” “I’m Not There,” “Magnolia,” “Vanya on 42nd Street,” “The Big Lebowski,” “Hannibal,” “Jurassic Park: The Lost World,” “The Fugitive,” “Nine Months,” and “The Hand That Rocks the Cradle.”

    Moore has four films set to be released in 2014 — the fantasy adventure, “The Seventh Son,” (Jan. 17), the action-thriller “Non-Stop” (Feb. 28), the thriller “Map to the Stars” and “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 1.”
