Julianne Moore recently graced the cover of the fall print issue of DuJour Magazine. In one of the photos, she is seen rocking a leggy look. During the interview, Moore became candid about her upcoming role for the biopic titled "The Glorias."

The 59-year-old actress will portray Gloria Steinem in the new Julie Taymor film after age 40, while actress Alicia Vikander, 31, will take on the character from ages 20–40.

Steinem, who has spent countless amounts of time doing political organizing and in-person activism, was on hand throughout the production of "The Glorias."

Speaking about her first meeting with Steinem, Moore confessed that it was "intimidating." The actress described the activist as a "magnificent and formidable woman."

"She'll gently correct you," Moore shared, "but she's so modest." The Oscar winner admitted that portraying Steinem was quite challenging for her as an actress due to the activist's mannerisms.

Earlier in September, the trailer for the film was released. It shows Moore in character with the iconic long blonde hair of Steinem. Her fans said they are so excited to watch the film.

Moore, who is particularly prominent for her depictions of troubled women in movies, has been living the good life in isolation with her family in The Hamptons.

Talking about her Montauk residence, Moore said that they feel fortunate to be living there. According to her, the place was so cold in the winter, but that it was "amazing."

The actress went on to share that the pandemic has been a lesson for all of them, adding that trying to go forward as if nothing has changed is a bit of a "fool's errand."

Moore's first screen role came in the mid-1980s when she was picked to star in the hit television soap opera "As the World Turns." She played the dual roles of half-sisters, Frannie and Sabrina Hughes, on the show.

Meanwhile, in August, Moore uploaded a photo on Instagram of herself with her husband, Bart Freundlich, to celebrate their 17th wedding anniversary. They exchanged their wedding vows in August 2003.

In her post, the actress pours out her feelings for Freundlich, saying, "there is no one I'd rather be with every day." Moore and Freundlich share two children, son Caleb and daughter Liv.
