Julianne Moore may have an enviable actor’s resume, but the 56-year-old starlet admits to InStyle that she’s still learning more about trying to get into her roles.

The Oscar-winning actress tells the magazine, “I thought when I was younger that I was prepared. But it pales in comparison to the amount I do now.” Moore laughs adding, “Maybe being young, you think, ‘Well, I know how to do this!’ and the older you get, the more you realize that you don’t know anything.”

But when it comes to age, Moore urges her fans not to take it so seriously, “It’s a privilege to age! Even in scripts, they’ll refer to a character as ‘aging.’ Well… everyone is aging…when people try to stop the process, it always ends in disaster. I think it’s really important to be where you are.”

Moore is starring in three movies these upcoming monthsincluding George Clooney’s dark satire “Suburbicon”, which will have its North American premiere this year in the Toronto International Film Festival, and the much anticipated “Kingsman: The Golden Circle”, the follow-up sequel to Matthew Vaughn’s British Spy movie released in 2014.


“I wanted Poppy to be someone who made you think that she’s strange and reasonable,” Moore describes her character Poppy, the villainous entrepreneur.”… A lot of what she does is really presentational. She wants to be seen.”

The October issue of InStyle will be out September 15.
