In the Gloria Bell movie, she plays a divorcee and mom-of-two children who fall in love with John Turturro's character Arnold, who is also a divorced parent.

For the sex scenes of this new movie, Moore had asked the director, Sebastian Lelio, to make them more realistic.

She explained to the publication,

I do think that sex is challenging especially with someone brand new. It’s easy to have sex with someone you’ve known for a really long time. What we wanted to depict in 'Gloria Bell' was the reality of that. We wanted it to be real and not fake.

The actress said that appearing topless was just "part of it" because they "wanted to add a level of reality to the situation. She added, "It’s part of the storytelling. It adds a level of reality."
