Julianne Moore Talks Freeheld: Equality, Working With Ellen Page & More

In a recent interview on Good Morning America, Julianne Moore spoke in a fair amount of detail about her upcoming film, Freeheld.

Freeheld, as I’m sure most of you are aware of by now, tells the true story of┬áStacie Andree and Laurel Hester, who fought for the right to pass Laurel’s pension onto her partner Stacey after she passed. Their fight is noted to be a major force toward’s this year’s huge success with marriage equality.

Julianne said: “She [Laurel Hester] just wanted to be treated like everybody else. I mean, that’s what’s so moving about Laurel Hester and Stacie Andree’s story, is that they truly were partners. They had legally registered for domestic partnership.”

“[…]It’s a love story, yeah. And that was my favourite part of it, too. I love love stories, I think all actors do, and to get to one with an actor the caliber of Ellen Page[…]we had a great time together.”

And then, when speaking once more about Stacie and Laure’s fight for equal rights, Julianne finished up by saying: “They just want what everybody wants.”
