We love when there's nothing but love in the air!!
And Julianne Moore is shooting ray beams of love into the world all for her future onscreen lover Ellen Page.
After Ellen made an AH-Mazing speech and publicly came out, Julianne couldn't help but feel all the feels for her co-star in Freeheld, where the ladies will play a same-sex couple.
The redheaded lovely said:
"It was really wonderful. I was very happy for her."
As are we!!
We were so proud of Ellen for taking this big step with the public.
And we are also totally excited to see this movie based on the true story of a police detective who wasn't able to assign pension benefits to her same-sex partner after she was diagnosed with terminal cancer.
We know these ladies will move fans!

The world was delighted when X-Men starlet Ellen Page came out on Valentine's Day, but she wasn't the franchise's first openly gay cast member! Not even close!
Ian McKellen, a.k.a. present day Magneto, has been openly gay since 1988!
In the X-Men films, Ian's character fights on behalf of an unjustly disenfranchised group of "mutants." Well, that's no coincidence!
As it turns out, when director Bryan Singer approached the legendary actor and begged him to accept the role, he suggested that Ian view the mutants' plight as a metaphor for what the LGBT community endures in real life!
We still haven't stopped applauding Ellen Page for coming out, and now that we have even more reason to praise her, we'll just keep clapping if Juno what we're sayin'!
Michael Cole-Schwartz, the director of communications for the Human Rights Campaign, which organized the Time to THRIVE conference where Ellen publicly announced that she was gay, claimed that idea was all hers:
Living life FREELY! And OPENLY! Just being her amazing self!
Something tells us Ellen Page's dance card is going to be full for quite some time!
Ever since she came out, the Juno star has been inundated with support - and unfortunately hate - from all around the world!
But in the eye of the storm is a girl who's gotta get to work!
Ellen has been busy filming some reshoots on X-Men: Days Of Future Past, and on Tuesday she was spotted arriving back at LAX - probably to get started on her next project!
Ch-ch-check out the pics (below) to see Ellen keeping her head down, her hat on, and her eyes on the prize!

– Patrick Stewart on finding out that The Guardian said he was gay in their article about Ellen Page coming out!
Ellen Page bravely came out as gay on Valentine’s Day, becoming the latest celebrity to say “no more” when it came to hiding her sexuality!
But along with the countless messages of support Ellen got following her announcement, there were others who were far less congratulatory!
Anne Rice knows first-hand how ugly the internet can get after someone famous comes out as gay. Miz Rice has a gay son herself (writer Christopher Rice) so she DOES NOT tolerate hate speech! The author offered her support to Ellen on her Facebook page over the weekend but was then berated by anti-gay commenters!
So she sounded off against those spouting Christian conservatism on her wall in what can only be described as an epic Anne Rice throw down!
She slammed any and all who discredited Ellen Page’s courage, saying:
Ellen Page is celebrating coming out by having her first public lesbian relationship- with Julianne Moore!
OK, it's just for a movie, but still! Nice!
Ellen and Julianne have signed on to play lovers in Freeheld, an upcoming indie drama about a policewoman kept from leaving her pension to her domestic partner.
If that sounds familiar, that may be because it's based on the moving documentary short of the same name that won the Oscar in 2007.
Sounds like a real tearjerker, but also an important story of gay rights!
And Ellen is the perfect person for the part!
