Morning Brew – Sarah Paulson talks with Julianne Moore for “Interview”

Good morning!

Did you watch Big Driver this weekend? Maria Bello talked about coming out on the red carpet of her Lifetime movie’s premiere.

“You know, getting ill last summer changed my life in such a way. While I was recovering in bed, I saw so many things. Who was at my bedside and that we had this very unconventional modern family. After I wrote this article for the New York Times, I realized that there was a larger conversation to be had that nobody was having, which was that the only labels you have are the ones you give yourself and your family.”

“When I told my son I was involved with a woman romantically, who was also my best friend, he said, ‘Mom, whether you’re lesbian, gay, bi, transgender, or whatever, shout it out the world!’ That’s what he actually said, and I’m so proud of him for knowing that and being that guy. So ‘whatever’ came from asking: How do you define yourself by labels?”

Julianne Moore talked with Sarah Paulson for Interview magazine. If you’re a fan of either or both actresses (you should be!), you’ll enjoy the conversation.
