Los Angeles— “It’s interesting because somebody just brought that up the other day,” Julianne Moore replied when I recently asked her in London about her experience working with the two most popular young actresses today in Hollywood—Jennifer Lawrence and Kristen Stewart. “This person said, ‘My gosh, you’ve worked with two of two young female leads in enormous worldwide franchises.’ What’s been interesting to me is that they’re both beautiful and talented. They’ve worn the mantle of their success very well.”
Julianne and Kristen Stewart play mother and daughter in Richard Glatzer and Wash Westmoreland’s drama, “Still Alice.” Julianne’s portrayal of a woman fighting the early onset of Alzheimer’s disease is generating buzz that she’s the Best Actress frontrunner in this awards season.
In “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay-Part 1,” Jennifer’s Katniss Everdeen finds herself in District 13 of Panem and obliged to align with Julianne’s President Alma Coin.
“They’re incredibly talented young women and have been great partners,” Julianne added about Jennifer and Kristen who are coincidentally both 24. “I don’t remember that happening (to me) when I was younger. We didn’t have these big franchises. So, I’ve been impressed by both of them, by the depth of their talent and ability to navigate these really difficult waters. I feel lucky to have worked with both of them.”

(Reporter: "Do you Google yourself, do you Google your co-stars?")
Stewart: "Yeah, I mean I like to know what's going on. It's a very different thing though. If you, like, it doesn't ever touch you. If you're asking it affects me, like why do I do it? Literally I'm somebody who is kind of a control freak. I'm like obsessively... like I want to be self aware. I don't want to walk in to a room and ever think that there's something that these people know or think and I don't know it. But, at the same time, it literally is as easy as turning around and it's not there any more, do you know what I mean? It's like it doesn't touch you. It never is actually able to affect me in anyway. But yeah, hell yeah, I know what's going on. Google everyone, totally. I want to know what people are doing."
(Reporter: "What about yourself? Are you afraid of doing that?")
Stewart: "No, not really. That's the thing. I don't sit obsessively Googling myself, but I really think it's awkward when actors sit and say 'oh no, no I've never done that.' It's like 'you don't want to know? You don't want to know what's going on?' So yeah of course. And also this movie would be much more... it would be irrelevant if I didn't. Of course I do. This is a huge commentary on that world itself, so yeah."

Bill Condon: Kristen Stewart is “someone I really admire,” he says. “She had all the pressure of people in the spotlight and was unbelievably rigorous about keeping it real.”
