Hollywood redheads are absolutely mesmerizing, with leading ladies like Julia Roberts and Nicole Kidman burning up the competition with their great looks and fantastic talent. Red-hot redhead Julianne Moore is no exception. Her saintly figure and graceful film presence have been making fans drool for years, but the over-40 actress has continued to look great with the best era of her career just sparking over the past few years.
Julianne graduated from from the Boston University School of the Performing Arts in 1983 and moved to New York to seek work. She soon began to appear in a number of off-Broadway theater productions that led to her first role on the TV series, "The Edge of Night." Her success continued when she accepted a regular role on the daytime soap "As the World Turns," winning a Daytime Emmy for her work in 1988. Julianne later broke into film in a number of small roles in mainstream films like "The Hand That Rocks the Cradle" and "The Fugitive," before becoming a starring actress of her own. Julianne has received plenty of critical acclaim over the past years, including the National Board of Review Best Supporting Actress Award and the LA Film Critics Association Best Supporting Actress Award. She has also received four Academy Award nominations for her roles in "Boogie Nights," "The End of the Affair" and last year's "The Hours" and "Far From Heaven," though she has never had the honor of receiving an Oscar to date.

Julianne on the Screen
Julianne is one of the hardest working actresses in the industry today, appearing in over twenty films alone just in the past decade, starring in a number of eclectic films throughout her career. Julianne has starred in cult classics like "The Big Lebowski," "Boogie Nights" and "Magnolia," and has also appeared in award-nominated films like "Far From Heaven" and "The Hours." She has also starred in the comedies "Nine Months" and "Evolution," as well as the remake to Alfred Hitchcock's "Psycho" and the sequel to "Jurassic Park." Julianne took a huge risk with her career when she chose to replace Jodie Foster as the highly-admired Clarice in "Hannibal," the sequel to "Silence of the Lambs," for which she received mixed reviews. Julianne also appeared in the thriller "Freedomland" with Samuel L. Jackson.
On sex in the movies:
"You never have sex the way people do in the movies. You don't do it on the floor, you don't do it standing up, you don't always have all your clothes off, you don't happen to have on all the sexy lingerie. You know, if anybody ever ripped my clothes, I'd kill them."
On her childhood:
"In grade school, I was a complete geek. You know, there's always the kid who's too short, the kid who wears glasses, the kid who's not athletic. Well, I was all three."
"Fear has always been a great motivator for me. There are a lot of things I've done because I was afraid to do them, so I thought I should."
On being an actress:
"The most important thing you can do for yourself as an actor is have a real life."
