Julianne Moore spoke out about a campaign in Italy to support same-sex couples who want to raise a family.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the Academy Award winner was asked by an Italian reporter for her thoughts on Italy’s “step-child adoption” while doing press for her new film “The Maggie Plan” at the Berlin Film Festival.

“Everyone having a family is a matter of human rights. Every individual should have the right to have a family,” Moore, 55, says.

Moore also offered support for same sex parenting after being informed of Italy’s “step child adoption” which would allow same-sex couples to adopt a child if one member of the couple is the biological parent.

Moore currently stars in “Freeheld” with Ellen Page, a film about a lesbian couple fighting in a legal battle over pension benefits.
