POLISHED EDGE: Celebrity Q&A
Julianne Moore of ‘Game Change’ on HBO
Q: Was it difficult to capture Governor Palin’s accent?
A: I lived in Alaska in 1971, for a year. My dad was working for a law firm in Juneau. She sounds a little like her father from Idaho. It’s her rhythm, not her accent. She will emphasize a different thing in her speech.
Q: You look so much like her in the movie, but was your hair still red?
A: It was a brown wig, with highlights. I’ve had brown hair, and I’ve had blond. In “Far From Heaven” I wore a blond wig. My makeup artist is nothing short of amazing. I had on makeup everywhere. They had to wipe out every inch of my copious freckles. (Shows freckled arms and legs.)
Q: How did you adopt her way of moving?
A: Her shoulders are always back. I have a tendency to hunch. She’s an athlete. She has an athletic style of moving.
Q: Did you feel sorry for her?
A: I don’t know if I was feeling sorry, but I have sympathy for anyone put in that situation and is so unprepared for it. John McCain said he never had seen a better campaigner. I think it is ridiculous what we ask of our politicians. They have to provide guidance and be attractive and relatable. Why do we need that? You have somebody like Walter Mondale, and everybody was, “Can you show us some charisma?” Please! Why do we expect so much from people in our government? And this elucidates that very conundrum in the political process.
