Julianne Moore Reveals She Was Fired From This Oscar-Nominated Movie

The actress in no uncertain terms said she was sacked from "Can You Ever Forgive Me?" the 2018 biopic about famous forger Lee Israel, after clashing with screenwriter Nicole Holofcener.

Moore revealed she actually didn't walk away from the lead role in "Can You Ever Forgive Me?" - she was sacked.

"I didn't leave that movie, I was sacked", she told Cohen, adding that the picture's former director Nicole Holofcener was the one who fired her. "And so she fired me". "Yeah, yeah, Nicole fired me".

Moore said that the reason for her firing was due to different interpretations of the character, a celebrity biographer turned literary forger, but happened before filming began and they had "just been kind of rehearsing and doing pre-production".

'We just been rehearsing and doing pre-production and stuff and her idea of where the character was was different than where my idea of where the character was, so she fired me, ' Julianne confessed.

This is surprising, because up until now, the official story was that Moore walked away of her own accord.

The film caught a break in 2014 when Friends With Money director Nicole Holofcener signed on, helping attract Julianne Moore to star and convincing Fox Searchlight to finance the $10 million film.

"It's pretty bad", she said.

As mentioned above, Holofcener left the project as well - although she retained a writing credit.

Moore was replaced before production began by Melissa McCarthy, who received huge critical acclaim and an Oscar nomination for Best Actress for her performance.

Though Moore has no hard feelings toward McCarthy, she's yet to watch the film "because it's still kind of painful". And yet, the question must be asked: who the hell fires Julianne Moore?

Holofcener, who eventually dropped out as director and handed the reins to Marielle Heller, hinted at a behind-the-scenes dustup in an interview with HuffPost's Matthew Jacobs previous year.
