Julianne Moore

If you were an As the World Turns fan when Julianne Moore played Frannie Hughes (and half-sister Sabrina) from 1985-88, you probably weren't surprised to see the talented beauty go on to earn three Oscar nods. As the Yale flunkee with more than her fair share of man troubles, Moore (pictured with ATWT costar Bill Shanks) won a Daytime Emmy, and the Crazy, Stupid, Love. star has never forgotten her soap roots: On April 5, 2010, CBS aired a highly-anticipated episode with Moore reprising her role as Frannie. Sadly, As the World Turns aired its final episode in September 2010. Her most recent films came out this year, Don Jon and Carrie.
