How much would you pay to see an Oscar-winning actress weep in front of you? For some in New York City's Time Square, the performance barely warrants a single dollar bill.
Academy Award winner Julianne Moore took to the streets of the Big Apple alongside Billy Eichner for an episode of the self-titled improv comedy show, Billy On the Street.
While ordinary people dressed in cartoon garb typically catch the eye of tourists visiting the city's legendary Times Square, Eichner wanted to test a hypothesis—could a high-profile Hollywood actress like Moore captivate the same level of attention? Surprisingly, it turned out to be a far more challenging feat than we'd expect.
"I'm not a big fan of Spiderman, but I do like great actresses, so today I brought out one of my favorite characters—the one and only Julianne Moore," Eichner exclaimed at the start of the segment.
The deal was simple—a dollar in exchange for a short monologue performed by Moore handpicked from her lengthy filmography of cinematic hits, including The Hours, The Big Lebowski, The Kids Are All Right and The End of the Affair. We don't think a better deal has ever existed, even on Black Friday.
