The Word: Julianne Moore on Hollywood’s double standard
Julianne Moore is getting tired of the double standard for women when it comes to getting older in Hollywood.
“Men aren’t asked about age. Men aren’t asked about their children,” she tells DuJour magazine. “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.’”
Still, Moore doesn’t want to sound like she’s complaining, as she’s thrilled to have had the career she’s already had: “If I saw myself sitting here at 52, talking about my career and how I’ve been doing it for the last 30 years, I’d be like, ‘Are you kidding me? It happened?’”
