The stars are just like us, you guys. OK, maybe they’re not. But when Julianne Moore tried a juice cleanse, she hated it as much as we hate juice cleanses, so that’s something, right?
“I did a juice cleanse for the Golden Globes one year,” she tells New Beauty in the latest issue. “I think I did it for three days. To be honest, the only weight I lost was in my brain!”
The gorgeous Hunger Games actress is rocking the cover of the mag, and inside, she gets candid about all things beauty.
Take her hair color, for example. When the stunning, ivory-skinned redhead went blonde last summer, we mourned the loss of her bright crimson locks. It turns out, so did she.
“My grandmother always said my red hair was my calling card! And I never realized how much I identified with it until I had to dye it blond years ago for a role,” she says. “It felt so weird, and I couldn’t wait to go back to my regular shade.”
Even though she’s playing a blonde in the upcoming Hunger Games: Catching Fire, she’s wearing a wig this time, which she says is “pretty fun.”
Moore dishes about her favorite workout styles, too — without those juice cleanses, a girl’s gotta stay in shape.
“I don’t like noisy workouts,” she says. “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 also work out at my house, do interval running and lift light weights.”
And Moore is just as down-to-earth when it comes to aging — and giving growing-up advice to her 12-year-old daughter.
“I can remember being 12 and everyone was talking about the year 2000 and it seemed so far away,” she tells New Beauty. “I remember thinking, ‘I will be 40 then,’ and it just seemed so old — I couldn’t even think about it; it was utterly shocking. But when you get there, it’s so much less serious than you anticipated. The changes aren’t as vast and it all happens very gradually. Getting older is not as bad as you think.”
She adds, “For my daughter, we talk about different things as they relate to beauty. I always tell her not to 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.”
