Julianne Moore has thrown heels out of her wardrobe during the COVID-19 quarantine.
The 60-year-old actress is ready to get back to normal following the coronavirus lockdown but after wearing cosy clothes all day, she is not willing to swap her comfy footwear for towering stilettos.
Appearing on 'Live! with Kelly and Ryan' on Wednesday (02.06.21), she announced: “I’ve ditched heels."
Guest host Ali Wentworth agreed with Julianne, pointing down at her heels and saying: “I’m like a colt learning to walk now in these.”
Julianne added: "It's challenging."
Ali then asked the Oscar-winner if she has also given up wearing make-up since leaving the house but Julianne stated: "I never wear make-up, as you know. Except for when I'm on television."
Meanwhile, The 'Still Alice' star tied the knot with Bart Freundlich in 2003 and has son Caleb, 23, and daughter Liv, 19, with him, and has said she feels thankful she was able to be “laser focused” on her career in her 20s, as she didn’t have her first child until she was 37.
Speaking about her family, she said: “I have been so lucky, I really have,” she says. “As a young person I was hard-working, laser-focused. I was persistent and consistent, always prepared for an audition, always on time. And I was working really well. But I did find my personal life wasn’t successful, and it wasn’t until I was in my early 30s that I decided, ‘I want that too.’ I wanted to have a family, to have children and to make sure I was with someone who wanted to have children too.”
Julianne also made the conscious decision to allow her children to grow up without moving home, because she didn’t think her own upbringing – which saw her regularly move to different military bases due to her father’s career – was “ideal”.
She added: “I don’t regret how I grew up - it was very interesting. I loved the exposure, but I don’t think it was ideal. I wanted my children to have a sense of identity based around being in one place.”
