Everybody with eyes and a brain can recognize Julianne Moore as a beautiful, talented actress — and for 51, she looks better than most of us do now (in our 20s, 30s, and a little beyond). So obviously L’Oreal Paris fetted her for a campaign.
However, while news of celebrities joining forces with brands is hardly newsworthy, Julianne’s refreshing approach to aging is.
“I think it’s a privilege to age, and we have to remember that not all of us are lucky enough to experience that,” she said at a party on Thursday. “When we’re children, we all want to grow up, and our parents tell us, take your time, take your time. And often as older women, you hear people say that they wish they were younger. To which I say, enjoy where you are.”
“Because by wishing that you are younger, you really only end up missing the year in which you are living,” she continued. “So enjoy that year and every year that you have as long as you are able.”
Yes, Julianne Moore! You go, girl. Now let’s all take her advice seriously.
