Julianne Moore: Botox Doesn't Make Women Look Younger

Julianne Moore doesn't know why women get Botox, she told Britain's Observer Magazine in a recent interview.

The redheaded star, known for her roles in "The End of the Affair" and "Short Cuts," said that "it doesn't make them look younger, it just makes them look like they had work done.

"You are not going to look the same as you did at 25. What are you going to do about it?"

Moore does admit, however, that "it's hard for actresses. Our faces get to be blown up 50 feet wide, and you see stuff that otherwise you wouldn't. People freak out."

The actress, 47, is married to writer/director Bart Freundlich, 38. They met at the Sundance Film Festival in 1995, when Freundlich approached her about appearing in one of his films. Though she had just gone through a messy divorce from actor John Gould Rubin, Moore connected with the director.

"It wasn't instant. It built up when we were working together and we didn't want it to end. We opted to continue."

As for their nine-year age difference, Moore says "it's about the connection with the person. It's not about cultural references, it's about who you are."

She is currently starring in "Savage Grace," a movie about Barbara Daly, who married the heir to the Bakelite fortune, seduced her own son and was eventually stabbed by him in 1972.
