FAVORITE JULIANNE MOORE PERFORMANCES (ON HER 54TH BIRTHDAY)

"That's the beauty of what actors do, that you only have yourself as a resource. And so the trick is to find something in them that you connect to somewhere. And with every single one of my characters, I have to find something that I really understand and ultimately believe." -Julianne Moore
