Julianne Moore reflected on some of the "Kids are All Right" backlash 10 years later



The film has attracted backlash for featuring two straight actresses portraying LGBTQ people.
Moore’s character Jules, in fact, also engages in an extramarital affair with Ruffalo’s character.

Moore fully comprehends why the film sparked outcry.
“I can see why people took issue with a lesbian character having an affair with her sperm donor. On the other hand, I think that Jules’ character was someone described as being very fluid, sexually and personally. She was floating, in the sense of her entire identity — as a woman, as a person, in her career.”

“I’ve thought about that a lot. Here we were, in this movie about a queer family, and all of the principal actors were straight. I look back and go, ‘Ouch. Wow.’”

Moore is unsure whether heterosexual identifying actresses would have been cast in the leads today, but she’s still “grateful” for the experiences she’s had throughout her career.
