Featured Article: Julianne Moore for Town & Country October 2018


Academy Award winner Julianne Moore (in Chanel Couture and Chanel Fine Jewellery) stars in this month’s release of Bel Canto (in theaters September 14), based on Ann Patchett’s best-selling 2001 novel of the same name. Moore plays Roxane, a world class opera singer taken hostage while performing at a politician’s party in South America. In the film, Roxane’s singing voice is provided by the opera star Renée Fleming, whose own soprano is the voice Patchett had in mind when she wrote the character.

The October cover of Town & Country is photographed by Tom Munro with styling by Nicoletta Santoro.

On how she related to Roxane in Bel Canto: “A character who had been in Paris by herself, that was something I could relate to, because before I had a family I would find myself in a location all by myself and think, ‘This isn’t the kind of life I want to have. She lives without any kind of community.’”

On opera in the modern day: “I think that’s the tragedy of opera in the modern day, that most people’s access to it comes through TV, and it sounds, unfortunately, the same. But being so close to these musical masters, you hear the different qualities of their voices unamplified.”

On what her daughter thinks of the roles she chooses: “…Oddly, a lot of my roles get lumped together. There was a series of 1950s housewives that were all thrown at me at the same time. Or you do a bunch of funny things all at once. MY daughter recently asked me about a project, ‘Do you die again, Mom? I feel you like you always die.’

On the most important element to her acting method: “For me the most important thing is research. If I’m playing an opera singer, I better learn what it is to be an opera singer or be able to approximate it. I’m going to know my lines. I’m going to know the music. I’m going to know all of that stuff. But then that preparation allows you to drop it on camera.” (source)

Cruz on Donatella Versace: “To me she [Donatella Versace] is like a heroine. She has demonstrated in so many ways in her life how to be an incredible woman.”

Ramírez on his admiration for Gianni Versace: “He [Gianni Versace] was a visionary and a disrupter, and we’re experiencing an era that he helped create aesthetically. There were no designers expressing that rock ‘n’ roll approach to couture before Gianni – this mix of sexuality and celebrity. The current obsession with fame started with Gianni.” (source)
