Do things that scare you (like singing), walk away from anger and binge-watch decorating shows. The Oscar-winning actress tells Elizabeth Day how she makes ageing glamorously look easy
Julianne Moore, Hollywood superstar and legendary beauty, kicks off our conversation by telling me how she has spent the morning clearing up dog vomit. She and her husband, the film director Bart Freundlich, have two dogs – a ten-year-old chihuahua-mix called Milly and a labrador, Hope, whom they adopted as a puppy last November.
Usually, Julianne says, the dogs bark when they wake, but today they were suspiciously quiet. ‘Finally, I went to check on them and the little one had thrown up and pooped.’ She shakes her head, as if she can’t quite believe she’s telling me all this. ‘So I spent the whole morning taking out the dog crates, washing off the dog, cleaning up everywhere. That’s what it’s been like.’ It’s not exactly how you expect an interview with an A-lister to start, especially not one who has become a byword for a specific kind of glamour over her 36-year career. On screen, Julianne is a magnetic presence whether she’s playing a 1970s pornstar in Paul Thomas Anderson’s Boogie Nights, a struggling Alzheimer’s patient in Still Alice ‒ a part that won her a Best Actress Oscar in 2015 ‒ or, in her latest role as Heidi Hansen, the mother of a socially anxious teenager in the film adaptation of the hit musical Dear Evan Hansen.
On the red carpet, she exudes classic style. She regularly tops lists of the world’s most beautiful women and, at 60, claims to have had no work done. How does she feel about her looks? ‘I still struggle with all the freckles,’ she admits. ‘I would give anything to not have them. But you know, this is what you have. And sometimes I think that about my hair… I’m so closely identified with my red hair, it would feel weird not to have it, but then I wonder whether it might be so much easier to get dressed if I had dark or blonde hair, you know?’
It seems anathema to me that Julianne Moore, the most famous redhead since Anne of Green Gables, should say this, but it’s also revealing that even the most beautiful people have their own insecurities.
Today she’s speaking to me from her beach home in Long Island, New York State, her famous hair tousled, her face make-up free, and it’s almost shocking how good she looks. By her own admission, she’s grateful for her colouring: her fair skin means she has always kept out of the sun, and her lack of wrinkles and seemingly magical age-defying ways have led journalists to ask her what her secret is.
To be honest, she tells me, she’s getting a bit sick of being the unofficial spokesperson for getting older. ‘It’s enough!’ Julianne says. ‘Let’s all live, not talk about dying.’
