Personal life

Freundlich has been in a relationship with actress Julianne Moore since 1996, when they met on the set of The Myth of Fingerprints. When casting Moore's character, Mia, Freundlich explains that he “was looking for someone who had a lot of complication, a lot of sadness under the surface, and betrayed very, very little of it in her face.” During filming, Freundlich recalls seeing Moore standing outside, exposed to the elements without a coat: "I came up to her and stood with my back to the wind. I didn’t want her to be cold, and I also didn’t want to put my arm around her, or smother her, because I didn’t know her that well...Even though I couldn’t have articulated it then, I understood that I could keep her warm up to a point. But then the rest was going to be for her to do. We connected in that moment on an unspoken level, where she knew I saw that flame in her, and understood it, and was willing not to suffocate it but to protect it.” They married on August 23, 2003. The couple have a son, Caleb (born December 4, 1997) and a daughter, Liv Helen (born April 11, 2002). Moore has appeared in all of Freundlich's feature films with the exception of Catch That Kid (2004), The Rebound (2009), and Wolves (2017).

Freundlich is Jewish.
