Early Life

Julianne Moore was born on December 3, 1960, in Fort Bragg, North Carolina. She grew up in a military family, the oldest of three siblings and daughter of Peter Moore Smith, a paratrooper in the U.S. Army, and Anne Love, a psychologist and social worker from Greenock, Scotland, who immigrated to the U.S. in 1951. Due to her father's occupation, Moore moved around frequently, including stays in Alabama, Texas, Georgia, Panama, Nebraska, Alaska, and many other places. Julianne attended nine different schools and has said the constant relocation made her an insecure child who struggled to make friends.

When Moore was 16, the family moved from Virginia to Frankfurt, West Germany, where she attended Frankfurt American High School. She planned to become a doctor and had never even considered acting. Her reading hobby eventually led to her interest in plays, and she appeared in several productions at her high school, including "Tartuffe" and "Medea."
