Julianne Moore talks ‘Hunger Games Mockingjay,’ Alma Coin and Phillip Seymour Hoffman

On film and television, Julianne Moore has made a name for herself playing wound-up, emotionally intricate women—but in real life, Moore is a no-frills Greenwich Village wife and mother of two who’s not afraid to take charge.

The Hunger Games mockingjay-posterIn the November issue of More magazine, on newsstands October 28, Moore talks about how “knowing your own desires” has empowered her to not be shy about going after what she wants, including her kick-ass role in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay—Part 1 and Part 2. She also shares her take on her five most memorable characters and why Alec Baldwin, her co-star in the upcoming indie film Still Alice, calls her “unstoppable.”

On how her kids influenced her signing on for Mockingjay:“For a child moving into adolescence, the big question is, Do I have free will? Can I determine my own future?” she says. “[At that age] you’re still with your parents. But you’re asking yourself, Who am I?” Most of the films I make are not for kids. My son was in line for the midnight show when The Hunger Games first came out. They both loved the books. For them, my being in Mockingjay was fairly meaningful.”

She spoke briefly on her most popular roles before talking about Coin: ALMA COIN, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay (2014). “She is about political power— how you wield it and what you are trying to gain.”

On Phillip Seymour Hoffman: When asked about her old friend—Moore worked with Hoffman on three other films, Magnolia, Boogie Nights and The Big Lebowski—her face becomes flushed with emotion. “What is there to say? It was a terrible, ridiculous, untimely loss. It’s difficult,” she says, her voice tightening, “because I’m not sure how his family wants to deal with all this. It’s not my place. But I can talk about him as a colleague: He was an extraordinary talent and a lovely human being.”
