"You’re almost an honorary Canadian,” quipped Brad, to which Julianne replied, beaming, “I certainly feel that way!” adding, “I’ve been working in Canada for a long time.”
The star has been coming to Toronto to work since 1986, having shot Atom Egoyan’s 2003 film Chloe and parts of the 2008 film Blindness in Toronto, among others.
She also gushed about Canuck Ellen Page, her costar in the upcoming flick Freeheld, which also stars Steve Carell and Luke Grimes.
Those weren’t the only Canadians that had Julianne excited at the CSAs. “I’m really looking forward to seeing [Atom] tonight. I love Atom. I haven’t seen him in ages," she said of the Egyptian-Canadian director. "And Sarah Gadon, I think I’m [sitting] next to her, so I’m very excited to see her!”
