Julianne Moore on her thoughts on red hair and freckles
Julianne Moore didn’t always like her signature look.
the When you’re done saving the world actress, 61, spoke with The times this week and revealing how she really feels about being ginger.
“My red hair made me feel like an outsider growing up,” Moore explained. “Redheads make up 2% of the world’s population. No one wants to feel outnumbered, especially as a young child.”
As an adult, however, things have changed.
“Now I feel very identified with my hair and freckles,” she noted, “but there’s still a part of me that would rather be a tanned blonde.”
Moore also told The times that she received some not-so-helpful advice about her looks while working in the entertainment industry.
“Someone in the film industry said to me, ‘You should try to look prettier.’ I was like, ‘I don’t know if I can do this,'” he said Dear Evan Hansen star shared. “Obviously our business is a physical business, but beauty and beauty are subjective.”
Moore previously shared her insecurities about her looks The Sunday Times. In July 2022, she told the UK-based publication: “Growing up in the US, it felt like nobody had freckles. I just wanted to look like any other tanned American kid. I hated being the one who couldn’t go to the beach or had to wear long sleeves. I think that stuck with me a bit.”
She added that she is less “attached” to her appearance. as she got older.
“I think that’s because you’re interested in other things, like family, relationships, work or your community,” Moore said. “Being myopic about your looks is going back. I don’t think it’s going away completely, I don’t think there’s a person in the world who couldn’t care less, everyone cares a bit. But how interested you are in it and how fruitless it is becomes apparent as you get older.”
