She may have won an Emmy, but Julianne Moore’s portrayal of Sarah Palin gets a big thumbs down from one critic.
“I don’t think she’s a good interpreter of my mom. I think my mom is way hotter than that,” Sarah’s daughter Bristol Palin, 21, tells E! News about Moore, who channeled the former Alaska governor in HBO’s Game Change. “I think she doesn’t have that accent. It’s kind of silly, but my mom’s awesome.”
Bristol, who stars on Lifetime’s reality show Life’s a Tripp (so named for her 3-year-old son Tripp), is back in the ballroom for the all-star Dancing with the Stars season, partnering with pro Mark Ballas. Palin, who came in third in her first time on the show.
She says she’s not this season’s best dancer but called herself its “most improved.”
“I am just out there to do better each week,” she says.
Does she think her political star mother, now a Fox News contributor, would ever take to the TV stage to hoof it up for fan votes?
Not likely, says Bristol: “I don’t think she’d ever have time to do the show.”
