Julianne Moore: ‘I’m really happy with my body’

Julianne Moore is “terrible” at handling her thick, wavy hair.

Julianne Moore credits her slim figure to doing Ashtanga yoga three times a week.

The 55-year-old actress remains one of the most beautiful women in Hollywood, and frequently flaunts her petite frame in slinky, sexy dresses. While interval training is the exercise buzz word of the moment, Julianne prefers a more relaxed way of staying in shape.

"I do Ashtanga yoga at least three times a week, and I've started doing Iyengar at least once a week; it's just a different way of moving,” she told of her exercise regime.

As well as keeping her trim, yoga has the added benefit of helping if Julianne suffers any illnesses. It also keeps her mind clear and ensures she maintains a positive outlook on life.

"I love acupuncture and if my back hurts I'll go to a chiropractor, but I think yoga is really important to me in terms of how I feel,” she said. “I had an emergency appendectomy last fall and it took me so long to recover from it. I realised how important it was to be able to move around and to move quickly.

“It was a very eye-opening experience. I realised as long as I am pain-free and able to move well then I'm really happy with my body."

With her flame-red hair and porcelain skin, Julianne is certainly a unique and eye-catching beauty. But her work life means that when she has time off, she prefers to steer clear of make-up, and goes for a very simple routine on her down days.

"I tend not to use a tremendous amount of make-up when I'm not working because I have to wear so much when I do work,” she added. “I like YSL's Touche Eclat, which I'll use instead of a foundation, under my eyes and on any red spots.”
