Los Angeles— “It’s interesting because somebody just brought that up the other day,” Julianne Moore replied when I recently asked her in London about her experience working with the two most popular young actresses today in Hollywood—Jennifer Lawrence and Kristen Stewart. “This person said, ‘My gosh, you’ve worked with two of two young female leads in enormous worldwide franchises.’ What’s been interesting to me is that they’re both beautiful and talented. They’ve worn the mantle of their success very well.”
Julianne and Kristen Stewart play mother and daughter in Richard Glatzer and Wash Westmoreland’s drama, “Still Alice.” Julianne’s portrayal of a woman fighting the early onset of Alzheimer’s disease is generating buzz that she’s the Best Actress frontrunner in this awards season.
In “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay-Part 1,” Jennifer’s Katniss Everdeen finds herself in District 13 of Panem and obliged to align with Julianne’s President Alma Coin.
“They’re incredibly talented young women and have been great partners,” Julianne added about Jennifer and Kristen who are coincidentally both 24. “I don’t remember that happening (to me) when I was younger. We didn’t have these big franchises. So, I’ve been impressed by both of them, by the depth of their talent and ability to navigate these really difficult waters. I feel lucky to have worked with both of them.”
