Julianne Moore - Julianne Moore Loves 'Humble' Carell
Julianne Moore enjoyed her time with Steve Carell on 'Crazy, Stupid, Love' because he still ''humble'' despite his ability to connect with an audience.
Julianne Moore loves working with "humble" Steve Carell.
The four-time Oscar nominated actress - who is well known for her film roles as a struggling mother in movies including 'The Kids Are All Right' and 'The Hours' - plays Steve's wife Emily in romantic comedy 'Crazy, Stupid, Love', and she admits she enjoyed the chance to work with him because of his "soulfulness".
She said: "It's so easy working with him. He's got a real soulfulness and the ability to connect with an audience. And he's so humble about it. That's what's funny about him."
In the film the 50-year-old star plays a parent who is going through a marital crisis and the mother-of-two felt that having her own family helped her connect with her on-screen husband.
She added: "We have a lot in common and were able to talk a lot about our families and other regular stuff. In this movie, I don't think my character wants out of the marriage or out of motherhood. She just wants something different in her life. It's the woman who goes through a midlife crisis this time.
"I've realised over the years - from my own marriage and what I've heard from others - that a successful marriage can really survive a lot. And I agree that every child deserves parents that have a sense of responsibility to them and to that family. You have to allow a marriage to withstand a lot if it's going to be a part of a family unit."
'Crazy, Stupid, Love' is out on September 23.
