'now, go and wash your teeth!'
Julianne Moore isn't so good with her onscreen children. She ignores them, kills them, abandons them... even seduces them. Even when the famous redhead loves them (Children of Men, A Map of the World, The Forgotten) terrible fates await the poor tykes. If Moore didn't exude such warmth as a star onscreen she'd have a full-fledged Joan Crawford rep.
<--- Julianne is a much better mommy offscreen. She'd have to be! Pictured here with her two ginger kids: Cal (11... his birthday is the day after Julie's) and Liv (6).
Still if you had to choose one MooreMommy to be yours: coked up sexual Amber Waves in Boogie Nights? pharmaceutically enhanced foul-mothed step-mom Linda Partridge in Magnolia? cake-hating lesbian Laura Brown in The Hours? inappropriate and domineering Barbara Baekeland in Savage Grace? or any of her distracted housewives from Far From Heaven, [safe] to The Prize Winner of Defiance, Ohio ... none of whom have any time for their children / step children what with their heavy marital problems and poisonous environments? Which would it be? Or maybe you'd like to take your chances with one of her childless screen characters: Clarice Starling in Hannibal. Lila Crane in Psycho, etcetera...
It's your choice, just make one.
