On Thursday morning, Julianne Moore proved she was every bit the resilient New Yorker weathering Hurricane Sandy’s wrath. In order to speak with WWD about her recent appointment as a L’Oréal Paris spokeswoman, the award-winning actress ventured uptown from her powerless 11th Street apartment to use her brother-in-law’s car as a charging station for her cell phone. “I’m sitting in a car on the Upper East Side with my phone plugged into a cigarette lighter,” laughed Moore. “Meanwhile I’m getting e-mails from Paris and Los Angeles, where it’s business as usual.”
Moore said she and her family chose to stay put during and after the storm. “We are OK,” she said. “We didn’t want to go to a hotel because we have two dogs. One is a puppy.”
