"Bad Mamma Jamma": Julianne Moore
Known for being one of the most versatile actresses going Julianne Moore is this weeks Bad Mamma Jamma! Can you believe she is 52 and looks better than most actresses in their 20’s? Don’t even get me started on talent levels. I’d wreck it. And by it I mean her…ironing board. What did you think I was talking about? Really? Wow. Just when you think you know someone. Born Julie Anne Smith to a paratrooper father and psychiatrist and social worker mother, she bounced around the country not staying at one place for long. Except my bed. What?
Moore got her start on As The World Turns for which she won multiple awards before moving on to films like The Hand That Rocks The Cradle, The Gun In Betty Lou’s Handbag, The Fugitive, Nine Months, and of course Boogie Nights where she was nominated for a shit ton of awards. That same year she starred in The Lost World: Jurassic Park where she helped prove that dinosaurs are fucked up. The next year she was in one of my favorite films of all time The Big Lebowski.
She continued to star in the most random set of films. She isn’t one of those actresses that just do drama or just do comedy or romance films. She played the most depressed woman ever in Magnolia, replaced Jodie Foster as Clarice Starling in Hannibal, the sci-fi suspense film The Forgotten, and the revolutionary in Children Of Men. At this point in time she was knocking out at least two films a year.
She recently starred in The Kids Are All Right, played Sarah Palin in Game Change, and has six films coming out this year, one of which, Carrie, is Dante tested and Munky approved. Can you imagine how awesome she’s gonna be as Carrie’s mother?! “Say it! Eve was weak!” Oh, I cant wait. I think she may be the whitest White woman I have liked and for that alone she deserves recognition.
