Very busy day today, so here’s a equally brief story about the incomparable Julianne Moore. She’s never hesitated to take on gay roles like The Kids Are Alright because she knows how important portrayals of LGBT characters be done justice. Always a stanch supporter of gay rights, Moore gave a short but sweet explanation on why LGBT rights like same sex marriage are important:
“Oh, yeah, absolutely [I’m a feminist],” she said. “At one point, ‘feminist’ became a pejorative term. How did that happen?”
“If you’re a feminist, you’re basically saying you’re a humanist.”
“That’s why the issue of gay marriage is so important to me. It’s about everybody having the same shot at everything at work, at marriage, at life.”
Isn’t she incredible? And she has legs for days. Always a great advocate.
