Oscar-winning actress Julianne Moore has admitted she grew up accepting that life is all about change
Julianne Moore grew up accepting that life is all about change.
The Oscar-winning actress lived in 18 places during her childhood and has, from a very early age, always accepted that life is about change and overcoming uncertainties.
She explained: "When I was younger, I think I had a sense of direction, but I don't know that I ever had a plan. We moved so much that I never knew where I was going to be. People said, 'See you next summer' and I'd be, like, 'I don't know...'
"It was always interesting to me that people did have a plan in their lives. I mean, I try to structure my life in some ways: I'll make yoga appointments and arrange to see people for lunch.
"But if they say, 'Hey, there's this thing in August...' I have no idea where I'm going to be. So I tend to make short-term plans. And I'm aware that, no matter what you think, they often have to change. The only constant in life is change."
Julianne has Scottish roots and in 2011, took up dual citizenship. The actress partially decided to do it in recognition of her mother, who died seven years ago - although she admitted there are some practical benefits to having a British passport, too.
The American-born actress told the Mail on Sunday newspaper: "I have a British passport and I use it to get into London. I wave that sucker [her passport] and get right in!"
She also said that her new-found status led to a memorably humorous exchange with a fellow passenger.
Julianna recalled: "I love this - it was the very first time I came to London with my British passport. I was standing in the line at immigration and someone said [she adopts a posh English accent], 'Darling, you're in the wrong queue.' And I went, 'No, I'm not!'"
