Despite the controversy that the upcoming movie, “Game Change,” has generated, lead actress Julianne Moore has apparently found much to admire about Sarah Palin, after preparing for the HBO made for television movie role.

“I do think the situation that she was put in was a completely untenable one,” Moore told the New York Post.

The film, which co-stars Ed Harris as the 2008 GOP presidential candidate John McCain, deals with the choice of Palin as McCain’s running mate and her influential entry onto the national political stage.

According to Moore, the former Alaska governor and GOP vice-presidential candidate went from having an “open relationship” with the Alaska media to being manhandled by McCain’s people.

Moore explains that Palin “was suddenly almost in lockdown, where [she] wasn’t allowed to speak to anybody unless it went through the proper channels. They were telling her what to do and how to dress. And how to behave.”

“So they take a candidate for what she is and what she represents, and they want to make her into something else,” Moore added.

Unlike many of her colleagues, the actress has also developed a respect for Palin’s intellect.

“I think she’s very canny,” Moore said. “And she’s extremely hardworking and ambitious, and would not have reached the place that she reached without ability. You don’t get to be a vice-presidential candidate by accident.”

In order to master Palin’s unique Alaskan speech patterns, Moore listened to the audio recording of Palin’s book, “Going Rogue.”

“It’s not just her accent,” Moore surmised. “It’s almost her syntax, sometimes her phraseology. Instead of saying ‘to go out,’ she’ll say, ‘TO go out.’ There’s a musicality to her speech that’s very idiosyncratic.”
