Julianne Moore says her children, Caleb, 12, and eight-year-old Liv Helen, are only interested in her parenting skills and don't care about her career accomplishments
Julianne Moore's children are "disinterested" in her career.
The 'Chloe' actress - who is married to director Bart Freundlich - insists her 12-year-old son Caleb and eight-year-old daughter Liv Helen thinks it is "great" they are only concerned with her parenting and haven't even expressed any desire to read her 'Freckleface Strawberry' children's book series.
Julianne said: "My book is never requested at home. They're very disinterested in what I do for a living.
"Children are interested in you being their parent, and that's really what they want. It's a great thing."
However, though the children are not interested in the 49-year-old star's career, Julianne is teaching them to take an interest and care about other people.
She added to People magazine: "They go to a Quaker school, and one of the things in the Quaker community is about community service and what you can do to help others.
"We've been given a lot in our lives, and so we talk about that. What do you do to help out? Simple things like cleaning up a park, but just the idea that it's your responsibility as a member of a community to help out other people."
