Amaro? Hell, no! Julianne Moore isn’t too crazy about slapping a filter on a less-than-perfect selfie. The Hunger Games actress acknowledges that beauty nowadays can be heavily manipulated.

“What's interesting about social media — and kids are learning this very early too — is that these images are manufactured. [Kids] go, 'Oh, I put a filter on it. Oh, I stand this way. Oh, I do that,'" Moore, 55, told Refinery29 in a May 30 post. “So, in fact, there's a deeper understanding that the images that we consume daily are manufactured, and they're learning it because they're able to manufacture their images.”

The L’Oréal Paris spokeswoman still believes that beauty is important, despite its digital loopholes. “Rather than saying it's trivial and throwing beauty away, it's important to broaden our understanding of what it is we find beautiful and why we find it beautiful."

But of course, it has its painful moments. While shooting her upcoming film Wonderstruck, the Oscar winner reminisced on her time in the hair and makeup chair: “It's always fun! I call it a game of advanced Barbie,” she said. “If you're doing something with a lot of prosthetics, you like to take a break because it hurts your skin after a while. But then sometimes you think, Well, I want to wear a wig in this, and I want to do this and that."
