"Is there anyone you'd rather ask to ride a white horse bareback in a Ferragamo gown than Julianne Moore?"

That was the question that Out's editors posed in 2010, when the actress (yet to receive all the acting awards many deemed her due) got on the back of a steed as an LGBT ally for the annual Out100 issue. She explained that roles have always been personal. "I choose a part because I'm interested in the role, the director, the script. I don't go looking for something that seems political, but by virtue of the roles being intensely personal, it becomes that way." And the same could be said for her role in Still Alice, which earned her the first Oscar of her career this past weekend.

She'd just starred in the film The Kids Are All Right and told the magazine:

"I don't think that films predict what's happening in culture,' she says. 'I think that they reflect it. I don't think that a movie like The Kids Are All Right could be made if this wasn't the way that families are living today all over the United States."

What a classy lady.
