Too Moorevelous for Words!

Happy Birthday to Sassy Sag, Julianne Moore! What a gorgeous goddess and she's my favorite contemporary actress! I loved her as Cathy Whitaker in Todd Haynes' "Far From Heaven"--a Douglas Sirk-ian technicolor stew of repressed desire:

And who can forget our lady as Amber Waves, tragic porn diva, in "Boogie Nights"?

I think Cathy and Amber have a lot in common...but then the 1950s sure weren't the 1970s! Some days I could be either of them-sigh!

Julianne remains an inspiration: beauty and brains! Bellissima!

AND a redhead goddess - viva Julianne.

She is fantastic. She's beautiful and talented.

I'll redhead gawk with the best of 'em, but I must say that "SAFE" is the best of her work. Thanks, Todd Haynes.
