An Ideal Husband

Julianne Moore marries longtime partner -- She weds Bart Freundlich, her ''Myth of Fingerprints'' director and father of her two kids

Julianne Moore, who was nominated for two Oscars last winter for playing unhappily married women, became a happily married one on Saturday, the New York Post reports. After seven years and two kids together, she and director Bart Freundlich tied the knot at an undisclosed Manhattan location, then celebrated with a reception at their home in Manhattan's Greenwich Village, her assistant, Dan McCann, confirmed to the Post.

The bride wore a lilac-colored, sleeveless Prada gown, Prada shoes, and a pair of long earrings lent by pal Ellen Barkin. The groom wore a cream-colored three-button suit and a purple tie matching his bride's dress. Some 36 guests attended the reception, including Barkin and her husband, Revlon magnate Ron Perelman, and actors Billy Crudup and Peter Berg.

Moore, 42, met Freundlich, 33, when he directed her in 1997's ''The Myth of Fingerprints.'' Though they have a son, Caleb, 5, and a daughter, Liv, 16 months, they did not get engaged until last December, on the eve of her Oscar nominations for ''The Hours'' and ''Far From Heaven.''
