Julianne Moore may be fond of playing 1950s characters on screen, but the actress has revealed she hates wearing the clothes of the era.

The actress, who has starred in period films like Far From Heaven and The Hours, revealed the nipped in dresses and demure costumes she donned for the roles just didn't appeal to her.

'I don't like Fifties clothes. I wear them in movies, or they appear on the runway, ladylike waists and all that. I'm like, 'No!' I hate them on me, because I have no waist. I go straight up and down," she told the May issue of InStyle.

The Boogie Nights star, who was being interviewed for the magazine by fashion designer Tom Ford, said the 1970s were her favourite fashion decade and gave her top tip for maintaining her youthful looks.

"Stay out of the sun! I have very fair skin and it would have been super-damaged. I always wear sunscreen and I walk on the shady side of the street," she said.

The trim Julianne, who is next set to star as US politician Sarah Palin in the upcoming film Game Change, also revealed her favourite comfort food was an upmarket take on fish and chips.

"Dover sole and French fries," she said. "It's really boring, but I'll be in hotels where I'll eat that every night. And ice cream."
