Julianne Moore on Aging Gracefully, Freckles and Looking 'Not So Sexy'
Despite being one of the most beautiful and sought after leading ladies in Hollywood, Julianne Moore insists that she is over the hill. “I like to call myself the hundred-year-old model,” she jokes in the November issue of Allure. Stunning in a slit-to-there Lanvin dress, the actress, Bulgari model, and new face of Talbots tackles topics ranging from nudity, plastic surgery (for the record, she doesn’t think it makes people look better) to girl-on-girl action. And though often spotted in designer looks on the red carpet, she happily forgoes fashion for sun protection. “I have what I call ‘my outfit’, I wear a long-sleeved rash guard and a pair of board shorts. It’s not so sexy, but I keep myself covered.” Looking radiant on the cover in a barely-there halter top, Moore appears as if she hasn’t aged a day since The Big Lebowski. But the alabaster beauty, who counts Oil of Olay among her beauty must-haves, still has moments of self-loathing: “I don’t love my freckles—I’d really rather not have them, but there’s nothing I can do.” For a behind-the-scenes look and more about Julianne’s self-deprecating life philosophy, fashion follies and beauty blunders, visit allure.com or pick up the November issue, on newsstands Oct. 26. –Justine Harman
