Actress Julianne More has an estimated net worth of $40 millionfrom starring in major Hollywood movies, especially for portraying emotionally troubled women. After a three-decade long journey into show business starting way back in 1983, Moore is now a respected, award-winning actress and a well-known Hollywood celebrity.
Theater, Television & Movies
After learning the theatrical arts from Boston University, Moore got into professional acting by taking on roles in television soap operas. She was a regular cast member of As the World Turns from 1985 to 1987 playing a dual role of half-sisters Frannie and Sabrina Hughes. Her theater presence was felt as Ophelia in Guthrie Theater’s rendition of Hamlet. Before breaking into mainstream cinema, she was also seen in a couple of TV movies, such as Cast a Deadly Spell (1991), The Last to Go (1991), and Money, Power, Murder (1989).
Her cinematic debut was in Tales from the Darkside: The Movie (1990), which is eventually what kicked off her acting career, although mostly just in supporting roles for films like Body Of Evidence (1993) and the 1993 Harrison Ford movie The Fugitive, in which she played a doctor.
As time and talent flourished, Moore had breakthrough success after being cast as Dr. Sarah Harding in Steven Spielberg’s epic Jurassic Park sequel, The Lost World: Jurassic Park, in 1997. Success and critical acclaim poured in after that with movies like Boogie Nights (1997), The End of the Affair (1999), and The Hours (2002)—all three roles earned her an Academy Award nomination for Best Actress in a Supporting Role. Moore’s long list of hit movies also includes Short Cuts (1993), Safe (1995), Hannibal (2001), Evolution (2001), Children of Men (2006), A Single Man (2009), Crazy, Stupid, Love (2011), Don Jon (2013), and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 and Part 2 (2014-2015). By late 2015, Moore had appeared in over 60 feature films. In addition to a lucrative career in Hollywood, Julianne Moore’s net worth also had some help from her four-year stint playing Nancy Donovan on the hit television series 30 Rock.
Awards & Nominations
Moore won her first award, a Daytime Emmy Award, for As the World Turns in 1988, adding a Primetime Emmy in 2012 for playing Sarah Palin in the TV movie Game Change. She won her first Oscar in 2015 for Best Actress in Still Alice, also winning a BAFTA Award and a Golden Globe for the role. Moore has four Academy Award nominations (one win), nine Golden Globe nominations (three wins), four BAFTA nominations (one win), and six Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Award nominations (two wins).
Friends, Family and Her West Village Home
When your net worth is as high as Julianne Moore’s, it makes sense that you rub shoulders with the rich and famous. Not surprisingly, the actress’ A-list friend circle includes the likes of Alec Baldwin, Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, and Ellen Barkin.
Moore lives with her husband, director Bart Freundlich, their five kids, and a pet dog in a three-bedroom duplex in Manhattan’s West Village (as of 2013, at least) overlooking the Hudson River. Her husband’s brother, architect Oliver Freundlich, designed this elegant revamped condo with vintage sectional couches in the living room, a vintage wall cabinet by Harvey Probber in the hallway, a custom-designed stainless steel staircase for the upper deck, and a display featuring select pieces from Moore’s own pottery collection.
Moore has listed several of her previous homes for sale, including her 1,000-square-foot three-bedroom Hampton’s cottage in Montauk, New York, which was listed for $3.5 million in September 2015.
Endorsements and Other Business Ventures
Like many other actors and actresses, Julianne Moore’s net worth has gotten a big push from her many endorsements. She’s currently a spokesperson for L’Oréal Paris and has done work in the past for Bvlgari, Talbots, and Revlon.
Julianne Moore skills lie in more than just acting—she’s also an acclaimed author of children’s books. Her first book, Freckleface Strawberry, came out in 2007 and followed a little girl who eventually learns to love the freckles she once wished would disappear. The book was reportedly inspired by her own childhood, as she was teased for having red hair and freckles. Freckleface Strawberry eventually turned into a series, with four more books as of 2015. What’s more, the story was adapted into a stage musical, first showing at New York’s off-Broadway theater, New World Stages, in 2010 and later licensed to other theaters. Moore is also the author of another children’s picture book, My Mom Is a Foreigner, But Not to Me, which was published in 2013.
