Julianne Moore - Julianne Moore Shocked By Sarah Palin's Lack Of Control Over Image

Julianne Moore was left stunned while researching her portrayal of former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin after discovering the politician was completely controlled by her advisors.
The Oscar winner portrays the one-time Vice Presidential candidate in upcoming film Game Change, based on John Heilemann and Mark Halperin's book which chronicles John MCCain's failed bid for the White House in 2008.
Moore spent weeks perfecting her portrayal of the controversial politician, and admits she was shocked to discover Palin was told what to say and how to look throughout her campaign.
She says, "In my portrayal, I tried to be as balanced and as fair as possible using the tools that we had.
"Obviously I am never going to be her. But I need to portray her as precisely as possible. She was only allowed to talk with certain media outlets. Everything she said was prescribed. She didn't understand why they had brought her in as a vice presidential candidate for her abilities and then not let her use them.
"I was not aware that campaigns were conducted that way. And I certainly wasn't aware that people are educated, dressed, made up. That is much more like what we do in showbusiness."
