Still Alice Oscar nominee Julianne Moore says role was rewarding

08 February 2015

Oscar nominated actress Julianne Moore has spoken about her 'rewarding' role in Still Alice where she portrays Dr. Alice Howland - a linguistics professor who is diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease.

Moore has already won 17 Awards for her hard hitting role in the film including the 2015 Critics' Choice Awards for best actress.

In an interview with the Press Association, the sought after actress who returns to her role of President Alma Coin in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 this November said "It's been nice to hear from people that their experience was represented and they felt seen, that's probably the most rewarding experience that I've had, because I think there's a tremendous amount of shame around the disease and people feel like they're not seen, they feel isolated."

Moore also commented on the awards season, hoping that it will prompt more people to see the film adding "It brings so much attention to the movie, and this is a movie we all care about, and so it's wonderful because hopefully people will see the film."

Moore’s Still Alice Directed by by Richard Glatzer and Wash Westmoreland, the film also stars Alec Baldwin, Kristen Stewart and Kate Bosworth and hits cinemas on March 6.
