‘American’ Julianne Moore now a UK citizen

Washington, Aug 30: Julianne Moore, who was born in the U.S., has revealed her excitement of becoming a UK citizen, and feels the move will please her late mother, who was a Scottish.

The 50-year-old’s mother had to renounce her British citizenship when she married Peter, an American who was an army colonel and later a military judge, who was not allowed to have a foreign national as a wife.

“I’ve just become a UK citizen. Isn’t that something? I’m really thrilled and it would have meant the world to her (mom),” Contactmusic quoted her as saying.

“Her parents emigrated when she was 10, so she didn’t have a choice about moving to the United States,” she said.

“My sister and I both remember her coming home in tears carrying the American flag,” she added. (ANI)
