Julianne Moore has had a strong dislike of her freckles for most of her life.
The Still Alice actress is instantly recognisable for her porcelain skin and striking red hair, and in addition to her Hollywood career, has acted as a brand ambassador for L’Oreal Paris since 2012.
But in spite of her success, Julianne has now shared that she still battles insecurities over her appearance, especially her freckles.
“I still don’t like them,” she told Tatler magazine. “I’d prefer not to have them, but I do have them and so, so what? It’s OK to have something you don’t love. It’s really alright.”
For the cover of the July 2019 issue, Julianne sports a dramatic Prada dress and custom-made feather eyelashes created for her by make-up artist Hung Vanngo. She also appears in a number of other dramatic ensembles in the accompanying photoshoot, including the gold sequin Valentino ruffle dress she wore to the 2019 camp-themed Met Gala earlier this month.
Accordingly, Julianne explained that she holds a deep passion for fashion, and is still shocked by the death of her friend and Chanel creative director Karl Lagerfeld at the age of 85 in February.
“Losing Karl was a shock to everybody, because he was one of those people who we all believed would live forever. He was so vital, so present, he did everything himself. Whenever you went to the atelier he was right there, working,” the 58-year-old commented.
Elsewhere in the interview, Julianne spoke about her support for the #MeToo movement, opened up about journalist Gloria Steinem, who she is playing in the upcoming film The Glorias: A Life on the Road, and also chatted about the moment she discovered she needed to take control of her own life.
“It wasn’t until I was in my early thirties and I was really unhappy that I realised I hadn’t made my personal life a priority. I realised: ‘I really want this. I want to be married. I want to have children,'” the mother-of-two added.
