Turkish people think Julianne Moore’s acting sucks

Julianne Moore is one of the best actresses of her generation, I’d say – and I feel like most people agree with that, considering she’s got Oscars, Golden Globes and a shit ton of other awards. She’s also smart, strikingly beautiful, kind and seems to be an all-around lovely person. But not according to the people of Turkey, since they fired Julianne from a tourism campaign for her “poor acting”.

The movie star has been dropped as the face of Turkey’s tourism campaign due to her “poor acting” skills, according to the Turkish media outlet Hürriyet Daily News (via New York Daily News).

Moore reportedly filmed a promotional video titled “Home Of,” which showed her traveling in an airplane while recalling childhood memories of her visits to Turkey. Shot in Los Angeles last year, the film was supposed to air in Turkey beginning in February 2014.

But the Hürriyet Daily News reports that the country’s Culture and Tourism Ministry were unhappy with the actress’ performance and wanted her to reshoot the film. When Moore rejected their request, the project was canceled, with ministry sources citing her “poor acting” as the reason.

Damn, that’s pretty harsh! However, it’s also pretty harsh that Julianne Moore is schilling for Turkish tourism. Is money seriously that tight? Say it ain’t so! I want so much more for you! You have a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, for God’s sake!

Juliannne Moore is the queen of everything

I’ve always absolutely loved Julianne Moore. She’s beautiful, she’s talented, she’s down-to-earth, she’s intelligent… you get the point. She’s one of the best actresses currently working in Hollywood at the moment (Meryl Streep and Kate Winslet completing the trifecta, of course) and she’s great. That’s why I love reading interviews with her – she always has really interesting things to say and doesn’t come off as contrived or full of shit.

In the new issue of New Beauty (whatever that is), Julianne spoke about, well, all things beauty, from how she likes to work out to what she tells her daughter about makeup.

On her favourite way to work out:

‘I don’t like noisy workouts. I tried spinning and didn’t like it, it’s just too loud for me.’

‘I do better when I am working out in quiet, which is why I like yoga. I especially like classes that don’t have mirrors. It’s a time to let go and let your body drop into itself.’

On sharing beauty advice with 12-year-old daughter Liv:

‘For my daughter, we talk about different things as they relate to beauty,’ she gushed. ‘I always tell her not overpluck her eyebrows – I remember overplucking mine in sixth grade, and I guess everyone does!’

‘She is allowed to play with makeup, but I also remind her how beautiful she looks without it. I also try to remind her she can dress modestly and still look lovely.’

On juice cleanses:

‘I did a juice cleanse for the Golden Globes one year. I think I did it for three days,’ she said. ‘To be honest, the only weight I lost was in my brain!’

Love her!

Julianne Moore’s Finally Getting a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame

I feel like we don’t talk about Julianne Moore enough. I mean, what’s not to love? She’s gorgeous, she’s a fantastic actress, she has a daughter, Liv, who LOOKS EXACTLY LIKE HER… Don’t believe me on the daughter thing? Here, look for yourself:

Seriously, have you ever been jealous of a child’s hair before? BECAUSE I AM. Anyway, that’s all neither here nor there – this is about the fact that Julianne finally got her long overdue star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Thursday, as you can see above. Well-deserved, obviously – I’m not really sure what took The Powers That Be so long on this one.

Chloe Moretz – Julianne’s Carrie co-star – and Joseph Gordon-Levitt were on hand for the big event, which was nice of them. If you want to go see the star (on the ground, not the woman), it’s at 6250 Hollywood Boulevard.

The New ‘Carrie’ Trailer Is Here, And It’s Not Totally Shit

I’ve never hard a lady boner for the original Carrie like so many horror fans seem to, but the remake due out later this year starring Chloe Moretz and Julianne Moore actually looks alright. I wouldn’t go see it, but I’d at least torrent a decent cam version or something, and that’s high praise in my world.

Julianne Moore is a totally underrated actress and manages to tap into that peculiar creepiness of Carrie’s mother really well. Chloe Moretz is alright, as well, but when Julianne Moore is in something, you can pretty much guarantee she’s going to steal the show even if she’s not the lead.

Carrie is due out on October 18. What do you think – will you see it, or is this another unnecessary and totally shitty remake?

Quotables: Bristol Palin Disses Julianne Moore

“I don’t think she’s a good interpreter of my mom. I think my mom is way hotter than that.”

- Bristol Palin discusses Julianne Moore‘s portrayal of Sarah Palin in that HBO movie, Game Change. Bristol went on to say that “I think she doesn’t have that accent. It’s kind of silly, but my mom’s awesome.”

Are we really doing this, Bristol? Is this seriously going to happen?

Double boom:

I didn’t see the movie, so I can’t really comment on Julianne’s acting (though she is a good actor, so, you know, there’s that), but as for the comment that Sarah Palin is “way hotter” than that? Girl. Bristol, honey. No. Just no.

New Couple Alert: Julianne Moore and … Joseph Gordon-Levitt??

No, haha, not at all. But wouldn’t that be something?

JGL and Julianne were photographed yesterday in New York City, presumably talking about their new movie, Gordon-Levitt’s directorial debut, Don Jon’s Addiction. The film is about a porn-addicted character (portrayed by Joseph) who embarks on a quest to better himself and his circumstances. Scarlett Johansson was cast in one of the film’s leading roles, Julianne in another.

If the theme and the A-list movie stars don’t get you to see the movie, there is a caveat here that might change your mind—Tony Danza’s in it, and no, I have no f-cking clue why either. Maybe he’ll be JGL’s porn sponsor or something. I could see that.

Anyway, the new film is said to be taking up so much of Joseph’s valuable time that he ultimately dropped out of Quentin Tarantino’s new project, Django Unchained, a slave-era drama:

A rep for Joseph Gordon-Levitt has confirmed to EW that the actor has dropped out of Django Unchained, Tarantino’s upcoming slave-era drama starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Christoph Waltz and Jamie Foxx, due to a scheduling conflict with his feature directorial debut.

Gordon-Levitt was set to play a small supporting role in Django but knew that shooting might conflict with Don Jon’s Addiction, which he’ll be directing and starring in with Scarlett Johansson, according to a Deadline report from February. As it turns out, scheduling does in fact conflict, and Gordon-Levitt recently confirmed to MTV News, “No, I’m not going to get to do [Django]. I’d love to, but it just doesn’t work.”

Gordon-Levitt sadly won’t get to join the all-star cast, which includes DiCaprio, Waltz, Foxx, Kerry Washington, Sacha Baron Cohen, Kurt Russell and Samuel L. Jackson. The movie, set for a December 2012 release, tells the story of a slave turned bounty hunter (Foxx) who sets out to rescue his wife (Washington) from a ruthless plantation owner (DiCaprio).

So I guess that sounds pretty serious, then, right? Joseph has got some pretty high hopes riding on this new Scarlett Johansson-led movie that he’s directing, so much so that he’s willing to drop out of a lucrative film project (featuring people like Leonardo DiCaprio! Samuel L. Jackson! Jamie Foxx!) that probably would have assured his shaky place as an A-list actor. Hope you’re making the right decision, boyfriend. I’ll love you one way or the other, but the critics aren’t so friendly, you know.
