This is an extract from the December issue of InStyle Australia, available from Thursday November 16, 2017.
Julianne Moore is on holiday. And when she greets me outside her Montauk, N.Y., house, she’s the epitome of weekend chic in a white T-shirt and denim cutoffs—the only character Moore is playing is herself: blissfully unguarded.
Outside her front door is a towel covered with a family’s worth of sandy shoes, including her own black-on-black Birkenstocks. She’s midway through preparing tea and breakfast for her daughter, Liv, 15, who’s home sick from her summer camp counselor job.
It’s early, so son Cal, 19, is still sleeping and husband Bart Freundlich is out with their two dogs, Cherry and Milly. The Moore-Freundlich cottage, originally a two-room fisherman’s shack built in the ’40s that’s been gently teased out to a small three-bedroom space, is totally quiet.
She delivers Liv her breakfast and asks me what we should do first: interview or paddleboard?
