Julianne Moore doesn't think her children will ever watch her films.
Julianne - who has two children Caleb, 10, and Liv, six, with husband Bart Freundlich - revealed her brood have never seen her movies and she doesn't expect them to want to see them when they grow up.
The 47-year-old actress, who has starred in several nude scenes, said: 'I want them to be interested in their own lives and their own accomplishments. I don't want them to be interested in mine. Mine are of no consequence to them. I am their mother. That's all I want to be to them - not some artist who discusses her work with them. I don't care if they appreciate my artistry. I just want them to appreciate my unconditional love.'
Julianne also says that quitting smoking 15 years ago was one of the major turning points in her life as it enabled her to focus on her career.
She added to Parade.com: 'The time when I began to see the most clearly was after I turned 30. I was 31 or 32, and I quit smoking. I was so emotional. I mean, everybody is emotional when they quit smoking. But I had been so unhappy, and I realised that I had just been - I don't know - literally stuffing it back with those cigarettes in my mouth. I felt like I woke up suddenly.'
Julianne can next be seen in 'Blindness', where she plays the only person who can see after an epidemic leaves an entire city blind.
