Julianne Moore's husband's age meant that he was much younger than she was. But it turned out that the only thing that mattered was the love the two shared.

Before Julianne met and married Bart Freundlich, however, she was formerly married to John Gould Rubin. Julianne and John met in 1984 and they got married two years later. Their marriage eventually ended in 1993 when they separated but the divorce wasn't finalized until August 1995.

That first marriage may not have worked out but the award-winning actress has moved now.

According to Good Housekeeping, Bart opened up about falling in love with Julianne and how he initially tried to ignore their attraction.

I remember looking at myself in the mirror and thinking, 'Don't even think about doing this!'

However, this didn't work as their connection was too intense to resist.

The Crazy, Stupid Love actress also said that she considered their age difference in the beginning but as time went on, this stopped being an issue.

It was a huge difference! He was 26 and I was 35! But he seemed much older than his years, and age evaporated over time.

She told People that the relationship was unexpected but she chose to keep going.

Julianne's makeup artist Scott Barnes also commented on the couple's relationship saying that their love was strong and the age didn't matter.

Sometimes you'll see Bart just looking at her with a huge grin on his face. Age isn't an issue. She's so young and vibrant. You know that energy you see from her on-screen? She's 10 times more so at home.
