When Julianne Moore won the Best Actress Oscar on Feb. 22 for Still Alice, she dedicated the award to her husband of 11 years, Bart Freundlich. But the ageless actress wasn’t always so lucky in love.
Star has learned that Julianne’s first marriage to aspiring actor John Gould Rubin turned sour, leading to a bitter divorce. John reportedly admitted during the divorce that “my career as an actor has not gone well” and said he had only earned $2,600 that year — but he also claimed that Julianne’s growing career was “marital property.”
Julianne, in turn, reportedly called John “lazy” and claimed he had “made a conscious decision not to go out and work.” At one point, the judge ordered Julianne to pay John $650 in temporary weekly alimony — plus $17,500 for his legal fees!
