"What's beautiful about stars is that they are who we want to be, but great characters actors dare to be who we can't admit we are. Julianne reveals things about herself and women in general that most actresses don't have the desire, or the daring, to do. In a way she's both Beauty and the Beast." – director Andre Gregory quoted in The New York Times, Dec. 4, 1994
"The longer you're in this business the more you realize everyone's just regular people. 'Short Cuts' really threw me into the fray. It was a cavalcade of stars. Things got a little easier after that." – Moore quoted in GQ, May 1995
About her role in "Safe," Moore told USA Today (June 6, 1997): "For me, the film was always about identity. All of us struggle with our personal identity and how we are defined by the world. If you're going to have a satisfying life, it's imperative to struggle with it."
"I can't think of anything where she has played herself. She likes things risky." – Jeff Bridges quoted in USA Today, March 18, 1998
"Julianne can do the hardest thing any actor can do, which is bad acting, porno acting. By the end of the shoot the entire cast was gathered around her, fascinated with just how she was doing it." – "Boogie Nights" director Paul Thomas Anderson quoted in Talk, November 1999
On her role in Anderson's "Magnolia", Moore told Talk (November 1999): "Paul pushed me really far. I would do a take wher I thought it was okay, It was high enough emotionally. And he would say, 'Do it again. I want it higher.' If I fail I'm going to fail in a really big way, let me tell you."
"I just want to work. The notion that anyone can plan a career is a fallacy unless you're making $20 million a picture." – Moore in Time, Nov. 29, 1999
"In 1996, she read a script called 'The Myth of Fingerprints,' written by a 26-year-old aspiring filmmaker named Bart Freundlich; during their meeting Moore says she asked Freundlich, "Why do you want me to do this part?' And Bart said, 'Because there's a duality to your personality that I really like. When you smile, your face completely transforms.' I was completely staggered that he knew that." – from Time Out New York, Dec. 9-16, 1999
"What makes Michael Jordan better than Scottie Pippen? I don't know, but Julianne's a Michael Jordan, she IS the person that she's playing. It's all inside her." – Robert Altman quoted in Time Out New York, Dec. 9-16, 1999
"A long time ago somebody had read this script for me and they thought I should pass. I was like 'Whatever'. But the script had also been been delivered to my house. I picked it up and it was [by] Paddy Chayefsky. I was like, 'Okay, that's the last time I ever let somebody say no to something for me." – Moore on reading scripts on her own, quoted in Entertainment Weekly Dec. 13, 2002
"The kind of roles which move me are those where people's lives are difficult, but they keep going. Nothing is guaranteed in life, not marriage, not relationships – the basic potential for disaster is always there – and yet people keep falling in love and having children and trying and trying. That to me is extraordinary." – Moore to Empire magazine, April 2003
