Julianne Moore was born Julie Anne Smith on December 3, 1960, at the Fort Bragg army installation in North Carolina. Her father, Peter Moore Smith, was a paratrooper in the United States Army during the Vietnam War, who later attained the rank of colonel and became a military judge. Her mother, Anne, was a psychologist and social worker from Greenock, Scotland, who emigrated to the United States in 1951 with her family. Moore frequently moved around the United States as a child, due to her father's occupation. She was close to her family as a result, but said that she never had the feeling of coming from one particular place. The family lived in multiple locations, including Alabama, Georgia, Texas, Panama, Nebraska, Alaska, New York, and Virginia, and Moore attended nine different schools. The constant relocating made her an insecure child, and she struggled to establish friendships. Despite these difficulties, Moore later remarked that an itinerant lifestyle was beneficial to her future career: "When you move around a lot, you learn that behavior is mutable. I would change, depending on where I was ... It teaches you to watch, to reinvent, that character can change." When Moore was 16, the family moved to Frankfurt, Germany, where she attended Frankfurt American High School. (Photo by Charles Sykes/Invision/AP)
