Julianne Moore, star of the newly released film Still Alice, walked the red carpet at an event in her honor at the Museum of the Moving Image, flanked by her husband and children. Moore plays a professor in the new film–one who is losing her memory to early Alzheimer’s. Julianne Moore lost nothing during this event, however, instead gaining the gratitude of those privileged to not only meet the actress, but her beautiful family, too.
Moore was joined on the red carpet on New York City’s Upper East Side on Tuesday by her husband, director Bart Freundlich, as well as son Caleb, who is 17, and daughter Liv, who is 12.
As anyone in attendance at the event could see, Caleb and Liv’s fair coloring and red tresses are hand-me-downs from Julianne Moore. Both children bear striking resemblances to their mother.
In addition to posing for pictures on the carpet, Julianne Moore and her family also snuggled together inside—at both the dinner table and around the ballroom, too. One photographer even captured a sweet moment between Liv and her father, where she rested her head on his shoulder.
Moore was lauded at the event by Ethan Hawke and Sarah Paulson.

Of course Julianne Moore was asked about her Oscar nomination for Best Actress for Still Alice while at the event. That’s the number one topic on everyone’s mind when they hear her name, after all. Her comments on the topic were humble. Moore also received an Oscar nod for her role in Maps to the Stars.
“You know what? I think you have to be grateful for everything that comes your way. It’s never a guarantee—you never even know if people are going to see your movie. So the fact that we’ve got this much attention, it’s really incredible,” she said.
It seems like family life is front and center for Julianne Moore. Many actors claim they can have a career and a family life, too, but don’t always practice what they preach. It was plain to see from the love exuded on behalf of all of Julianne Moore’s family members that it’s the real deal with them.
