I’ve always absolutely loved Julianne Moore. She’s beautiful, she’s talented, she’s down-to-earth, she’s intelligent… you get the point. She’s one of the best actresses currently working in Hollywood at the moment (Meryl Streep and Kate Winslet completing the trifecta, of course) and she’s great. That’s why I love reading interviews with her – she always has really interesting things to say and doesn’t come off as contrived or full of shit.
In the new issue of New Beauty (whatever that is), Julianne spoke about, well, all things beauty, from how she likes to work out to what she tells her daughter about makeup.
On her favourite way to work out:
‘I don’t like noisy workouts. I tried spinning and didn’t like it, it’s just too loud for me.’
‘I do better when I am working out in quiet, which is why I like yoga. I especially like classes that don’t have mirrors. It’s a time to let go and let your body drop into itself.’
On sharing beauty advice with 12-year-old daughter Liv:
‘For my daughter, we talk about different things as they relate to beauty,’ she gushed. ‘I always tell her not overpluck her eyebrows – I remember overplucking mine in sixth grade, and I guess everyone does!’
‘She is allowed to play with makeup, but I also remind her how beautiful she looks without it. I also try to remind her she can dress modestly and still look lovely.’
On juice cleanses:
‘I did a juice cleanse for the Golden Globes one year. I think I did it for three days,’ she said. ‘To be honest, the only weight I lost was in my brain!’
