Hollywood actress Julianne Moore admits she stalks/keeps tabs on her children on social media.

Julianne, star of Boogie Nights and The Lost World: Jurassic Park, said she has the same anxieties as any other parent when it comes to keeping her kids safe on the internet.

She admitted: "'It's a scary world out there. I'm all over it with my kids."

In an interview with The Mail on Sunday, Julianne, who has two children – Caleb, 16, and Liv, 12, with her film director husband Bart Freundlich – said she regularly 'stalks' them on Facebook and Instagram.

She said: "My son has a Facebook page which he uses but he also knows that his father and I – what they call, lurk – on it so that if we see something untoward we can talk to him about it.


In my opinion you don't get to have privacy when you're only 16!


"My daughter has an Instagram account on my phone, which is quite boring at the moment because I keep having to look at her pictures, which are all of kittens and cupcakes, but it's what you do."

Julianne also admitted that she followed Caleb on the New York underground to check he is safe.

She said: "When my son first started to take the subway, my husband and I used to follow him to make sure he was all right, and then we had to stop following him and let him do it by himself."

Julianne has just finished filming a thriller called Non-Stop in which she co-stars with Michelle Dockery, best known for playing Lady Mary in Downton Abbey.
