Do Freckles Make Julia Roberts’ Face Look Dirty?

Well, one unnamed director apparently thought so! That’s right, someone told Julia Roberts to go somewhere and have two freckles (TWO!) removed permanently because they made her face look dirty. That’s a serious thing someone said. Now, I know some people have hangups about freckles – I personally love them and think they’re great, but whatever. If they’re not your thing, I can think of a super easy option to make them less visible: wear makeup! Actresses wear makeup in films all the time in general, so if that particular film calls for a freckle-free face (which… why does that matter?), then throw on a few extra layers of foundation and get on with it.

Tell us all about it, Julia from The Independent):

“One director wanted me to have two freckles taken off because he said it made my face look dirty,” she said.

The actress declined to mention which film she was asked to have her freckles removed for, insisting that ageing is unrelated to acting. She added she was not preoccupied with her appearance.

“I don’t spend a lot of time in the mirror,” she said. “I’m pretty efficient in terms of looking at myself and, to be honest, I don’t think what you’re talking about is a business demand – it’s a cultural obsession.”

“I definitely think some of my older female peer group are deeply beautiful women,” she continued. “They have this thing that radiates from them. It’s coming from this deep place of understanding who they are and what their purpose is. It creates a light.”

Too right in regards to the cultural obsession. A few weeks ago I was at a private conference for August: Osage County and while, yes, most of my attention was given to fawning over the absolute genius that is Meryl Streep, Julia was so charming and interesting and yes, beautiful in a way that was totally unassuming and natural. Sure, one might say it’s easy for me to say this as a 30-year-old woman who isn’t trying to make a living in Hollywood, but I don’t get the obsession with trying to look younger. If you’re 45 and you’ve got 45 years of experience in life, why would you want to make yourself look 25? Why not embrace that? The idea that old = bad is just so misguided.

Here’s a photo from that press conference, by the way:

Julia Roberts Likes a Good Old Fashioned Fist Fight

Well, now, wait a minute. Julia Roberts isn’t some secret lover of violence – she was just taking liberties when talking about how people feel brave when they can be anonymous on the Internet and talk shit without having to back it up. You see, Julia doesn’t really Google herself or go online because people are assholes and she wishes they’d just say it to her face.

From Marie Claire:

Then she gets serious when asked if an actress can have a career like hers anymore. “It’s not the same business,” she replies. “It’s really different. And the Internet has so much to do with that.” No surprise she’s not on social media—”It’s kind of like cotton candy: It looks so appealing and you just can’t resist getting in there, and then you just end up with sticky fingers and it lasted an instant”—or that she never Googles herself: “I have too much potential for collapse.” She elaborates: “There’s an anonymity that makes people feel safe to participate in hatefulness. I like a good old-fashioned fistfight if people are pissed off at each other. I just feel like if you’re really mad and want to have a fight, then put your dukes up.”

Obviously as someone who talks shit about celebrities on a daily basis, it’s hilarious for me to be commenting on this, I suppose. Of course, my name is attached to it and I also don’t take it too seriously – I don’t ACTUALLY care what people I don’t know and never will do with their lives and I certainly don’t wish AIDS, cancer or death on anyone who might disagree with me – so maybe it’s slightly different. I would generally say everything I say here to all of the respective stars’ faces, anyway, even if I were to get spit on or punched in the face repeatedly.

In any case, Julia Roberts is great. I’m going to a press day for August: Osage County in a couple weeks and the whole cast will be there and I’m gonna dieeee!
