Julianne Moore talks aging and “letting go of your vanity”

Julianne Moore has proven to be a better Sarah Palin than the politician herself.  Moore has received an Emmy nomination for her portrayal of the potential VP in HBO’s Game Change.  It was an impersonation Moore worked hard on.

“I definitely positioned my mouth in her specific way,” she told The Hollywood Reporter.  “It’s funny when people tell me I look just like her.  No, I don’t.  I wore contact lenses with big irises to make my eyes look bigger, like hers, and they did all kinds of shading and contouring on my face.  Sarah Palin’s real quality is that she is her own best creation.”

Moore’s next role will leave her decidedly less time in the makeup chair.  The actress will be seen next in the upcoming remake of Carrie, in which she plays the less than glamorous mother.  When asked if she was nervous to go for a more stripped down look, she said, “I think in our business, you’re likely to feel that way.  Letting go of your vanity is not easy.  But if that character wore makeup, you’d never believe her.  Anyway, with actors, all our ages are out there for all to see—you can’t hide anything, really.  And it’s kind of a relief.  This is my age, this is what I look like without makeup on—who cares?  That youth culture—that lying about your age—it’s all denial of death anyway.”

In the future, the 51-year-old might switch to cable, instead of doing strictly films.  “I have a 10-year-old and a 14-year-old at home, so I’m not sure this is the right time,” Moore said.  “But I would for the right material.  Movie studios aren’t making too many dramas anymore; they’re in the superhero business.  Material for television is much, much stronger for actors now.”
