Julianne Moore Talks Sarah Palin Role with 'Capitol File'

Julianne Moore graces the cover of Capitol File‘s latest issue, on newsstands later this month.

Here’s what the 51-year-old Game Change actress had to share:

On taking on the role of Sarah Palin: “I basically had two months to prepare, so I cleared my schedule of everything, literally. I cleared everything that didn’t involve my family—I just let go of it and spent all my time doing research. It was total immersion. The trickiest thing is to take all these physical and vocal characteristics and somehow filter the character’s essence through them. And then you personally have to meet them somewhere, too. There’s this melding that has to happen.”

On her personal views of Sarah: “She was not qualified to be vice president. She wasn’t qualified to be vice president. She wasn’t a qualified candidate. I think that became quite evident during the campaign. It was so shocking to me when she resigned the governorship of Alaska when the presidential election was over. I was stunned. I just think that shows such an unbelievable lack of interest in the actual governing.”
