Julianne Moore reveals her daughter criticised her freckles


As we know too well, children are the most honest creatures on this earth. For Julianne Moore, this meant being told that her airbrushed face on the cover of a magazine was a big improvement to her trademark freckles.

In an interview with Redbook, Julianne spoke about her famous freckles and how some magazines choose to airbrush them out and others choose to embrace them. She also gave her daughter, Liv’s, reaction to this, saying: “Once my daughter saw me on a cover where I had no freckles and said, ‘That doesn’t look like you at all!’ And then – just like a kid- ‘I like you better without them.’ Thanks!”

Julianne also spoke about the ways in which she now embraces her freckles and trademark red hair, even releasing a children’s book Freckleface Strawberry about a little red-head freckled girl learning to love herself.
