“She’s dying to see it. She’s very excited. [Director Sam Raimi] really welcomed her on set and he made a very kid-friendly space. She witnessed so much of it being made so she’s really excited to see it come together.” – mama Michelle on her daughter’s enthusiasm over seeing her mother’s movie Oz The Great and Powerful.
“What situations optimize my parenting? Which really is the most important thing in my world. That’s the question that I’m asking. How do I live my life and work in a way that makes me the best parent I can be? I think it’s the ultimate creative act. If this doesn’t turn out well then there is no success or awards in the world that can make up for it. So I’m always wondering what that balance is, and where it is.” – Michelle, musing about motherhood.
“I’m falling more and more in love with [Matilda], and I think she deserves the bulk of my attention. We’re lucky. I can work. She can go to a good school. There’s a lot there for her. And she can know her dad in so many ways, and so many of his friends who will be able to tell her so many stories. His friends, his family—they were a big part of his life, and they were a big part of his life, and they will be a big part of her life.” – Michelle, on her beautiful daughter.

“Any note that James Wilke writes me is an incomparable gift. He writes such lovely, sweet, touching notes that are sometimes quite funny and my daughters draw me pictures all the time, and if I’m away, they mail me wonderful, wonderful pictures of themselves, self portraits.”- mama Sarah on her talented tots.
“I don’t want him to do it until after he goes to college: But part of me thinks maybe it’s better if he knows the truth now about how hard it is to be a working actor. I don’t know that he grasps what it took to get us here.” – Sarah on her sweet son.
“Having children makes it harder now. When you involve other people who are reliant on you, the stakes are monumentally higher. I don’t mean to be dramatic, it’s also beautiful and filled with meaning.” – Sarah, on how motherhood has changed her life.

Actress Julianne Moore covers the November issue of More and talks about how her children – son Cal, nearly 17, and daughter Liv, 12 – influenced her Hunger Games: Mockingjay role, the “terrible” loss of friend and colleague Phillip Seymour Hoffman, and how getting older has made her feel more powerful in her career.
On how her kids influenced her signing on for Mockingjay: “For a child moving into adolescence, the big question is, Do I have free will? Can I determine my own future?[At that age] you’re still with your parents. But you’re asking yourself, Who am I? Most of the films I make are not for kids. My son was in line for the midnight show when The Hunger Games first came out. They both loved the books. For them, my being in Mockingjay was fairly meaningful.”
