Julianne Moore was 36 years old when the film premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival on September 11, 1997. Born on December 3, 1960, in Fort Bragg, North Carolina, she turned 37 on December 3, 1997.

Before the Hannibal actress got the part, the role of Amber Waves was first offered to Marisa Tomei. Julianne clearly does not regret starring in the movie that follows the rise and fall of a well-endowed male porn star.

“Oh my God, I think he should thank God for Boogie Nights. It made his career!” she told Andy Cohen in 2017 about Mark Wahlberg’s role as porn star Dirk Diggler in Boogie Nights. “Yeah, my God, it’s a great movie. He was great in it.”

“I just always hope that God is a movie fan and also forgiving because I’ve made some poor choices in my past,” Wahlberg said in an interview with the Chicago Tribune. “Boogie Nights is up there at the top of the list,” he added and claimed to have asked God for forgiveness.
