It's your weekly reminder that Julianne Moore won an Oscar! And also a news story that sounds like sketch comedy. Thanks to Benji for this heads up that the universe is keeping Juli humble. Seems she filmed a commercial - part of a series of commercials using celebrities to promote tourism in Turkey.
Unfortunately the powers that be in The Culture and Tourism Ministry of Turkey have rejected the commercial she filmed for "poor acting" and cited her "depressive persona" as a concern. They offered her a chance to reshoot but she declined and they scrapped the commercial.
Someone somewhere leak this commercial. We beg you! You all know we love Julianne far Moore than is healthy but this story is so weird it's funny, don't you think? Especially since she surely got paid regardless and she just won an Oscar. (In case you hadn't heard.)
