Julianne Moore Says Nailing Sarah Palin’s Accent, Mannerisms Was “Really, Really Hard”

“It was hard—really, really hard … It’s hard to play someone who is very present in people’s minds, who’s on television, who’s very idiosyncratic, I did my best. We’ll see, I hope we pulled it off … [The accent took] practice, an incredible amount of practice. I had to listen to it over and over again. My son was embarrassed because [Palin's speeches were] all that was on my iPod. He said, ‘Where’s your music?’ I erased all my music.”

Julianne Moore talks to MTV News about what it was like playing Sarah Palin in the HBO movie “Game Change.” For some reason, I am picturing her and Tina Fey at a bar, sipping gin and tonics and trading war stories about the complexities of winking correctly and finding the exact right Alaskan lilt.
