For the film Chloe I caught up with 3 time Oscar nominee Julianne Moore for a quick chat. In Chloe Julianne Moore plays Catherine, a successful doctor who suspects her handsome husband David (Liam Neeson Taken, Love Actually), is cheating on her. To silence or answer her suspicions once and for all Catherine hires an irresistible and alluring young woman, Chloe (Amanda Seyfried Mamma Mia, Mean Girls), to put David’s fidelity to the test. As Chloe’s seductive behaviour begins to obsess Catherine, events take an unpredictable turn with potentially fatal consequences for her family.

Julianne Moore: For me it was Atom Egoyan (director), we’d known each other since the early 90′s , I had been a great admirer of his work and I had rushed him at the Toronto Film Festival and said to him I really hope we get to work with each other some day. I was so happy Atom wanted me to do this. The idea of a women’s confidence eroded in a long term relationship interested me.

Julianne Moore: I think she doesn’t feel seen by her husband, she doesn’t feel like she exists in a sexual way, she doesn’t understand what her husband wants any more, she’s lost touch with her own sexuality and then she meets this girl who just listens to her and who’s incredibly receptive and attentive, so she starts spending time with her and then it occurs to her she might be able to feel what her husbands feeling and learn from this girl to get to her husband. One of the things she finally says to her when she sleeps with her is tell me how he touches you? What does he do? Unfortunately I don’t think she ever takes this girl as a person, I don’t think she ever sees her, I don’t think she ever wants too.
I liked the duality of the character, I liked that here’s someone who’s so lacking in confidence and who feels so unloved, who is simultaneously able to go down that path of her own relationship with her husband, then has this utter callousness of no you are for me, I’m not thinking of you. That to me is interesting cinematically and emotionally that there’s a certain duality that she’s all about her own needs and simultaneously really able to hurt someone and not understand it until the end. I think that’s the tragedy at the end, she thinks how did this happen, she uses this girl. That’s the nature of intimacy and perception. If something is happening, do we know if it’s happening or do we perceive it. Because my character perceives it, it’s actually happening, the same with Chloe as well, she’s perceiving a relationship is happening that my character is not participating in, that doesn’t make it less real. One thing I love about Atom movies is that it is about perception and what that reality means to us and then with the audience you have a another perception with a completely different experience. That’s the nature of communication and miscommunication and the mess we make of our relationships.
gra na giełdzie When you know your gonna disrobe in a film do you skip the chips?
Julianne Moore: (laughs) Yeah I have to be nice to the camera man, it’s very unnerving, the camera is pretty close and I keep swearing I’m never gonna do this again, and then I get another script I really like with me disrobing, then this time it’s with a girl (laughs). You do have a tremendous amount of trepidation around these sort of things, one of the things I admire about Atom is that he makes movies about the human condition, about who we are, what we want and how we communicate with each other. With Chloe it’s an exploration into a long term relationship and what happens to it, human sexuality all of those kind of things. That helps because your not a playboy bunny, I’m not portraying something unrealistic, it’s about this women in a particular point in time, so yes vanity does come in to play but at least you have the support of knowing that your trying to tell a story about a women who’s your own age in a relationship. But that aside I dieted (laughs). You skip the chips!

Julianne Moore: We had spent a lot of time together before we shot the scene’s, we had done a lot of heavy emotional scenes and we had established a good relationship so by the time you shoot them scene’s everything’s very prepared, Atom knew exactly how he wanted to shoot it, we knew how we were gonna do it, then we just made a lot of jokes (laughs) which you always do when it’s a love scene, whether its with a man or a women.
