By  |  0 Comments

Julianne Moore graces Harper’s BAZAAR’s April cover (on newsstands March 24), and in the interview, the Oscar winner talks about her career, personal style, family, and more.

On her career: “Some people say, ‘You play happy people,’ and I’m like, ‘No.’ Or ‘You play people who have affairs,’ and I’m like, ‘No.’ Or ‘You play lesbians,’ and I’m like, ‘No!’ I’ve made 50-something movies, so there’s a lot of different people. I like really human stories.”

On her style: “My style has gotten better, hopefully,” she says, laughing. “It’s like everything—practice makes perfect. There was one year when my kids were little, and every time I was photographed, I was wearing a pair of cargo shorts, a T-shirt, and a bandanna. It was so bad, my publicist was like, ‘Get it together!’ ”

Moore will twirl as much as you like, but she ain’t doing no mani-cam. “I’m 54 years old,” she explains. “I can’t make my fingers walk; it’s humiliating! And a guy asked me to lift up my skirt to show them my shoes, and I said, ‘I don’t need to do that. Let’s keep some dignity.’ ”

Awards season also means fitting into your dress. “We’d all be lying if we said we aren’t watching what we eat,” Moore says. “Of course we are! I think we’re also really stressed. I’m not a stress eater. I get nervous and I don’t eat. But, you know, I had a dress on the other day, and I said to my manager, ‘When you see my back fat sticking out, tuck it back in!’ ” Chuckle. “Be a friend.”

Ask who she admires, younger and older, and Moore replies, “Ellen Page [who stars as Moore’s girlfriend in the upcoming Freeheld]. Kristen Stewart, I just love her. Emma Stone is fabulous. I love Catherine Deneuve. I love Tilda Swinton.”

“But,” she adds, “women are fabulous. I like our camaraderie, our similarities, how we collaborate. When my daughter was born, I looked at her in the bassinet and I said, ‘You’re one of us.’ ” She mists up. “I’m going to cry if I think about it too much. I had this little girl and was like, ‘Yup. You’re one of us. ’”
