Thank you, Julianne Moore.
In one of many frank moments during an interview with DuJour magazine, the actress drew attention to a line of questioning female celebs field regularly.
"Men aren't asked about age," Moore told the interviewer. "Men aren't asked about their children. Not that these things aren't important, but I do feel like it becomes reductive, when a woman's life becomes, 'Talk to me about your kids and how you feel about plastic surgery.' "
Furthermore the 52-year-old actress finds all the talk around aging to be "boring," she went on.
"Our fear of aging is really a fear of dying; aging is a physical manifestation of decay, and I think that is what's so upsetting to most people."
Moore must be a little bit fearless then, foregoing the Hollywood party line of aging being something to keep at bay by any means necessary. When talking about her L'Oreal partnership, she says: "It's not about being beautiful for your age. It's about being beautiful at your age."
So we have to say it again: Thank you, Julianne Moore, for telling it like it is.
