Ugh! In case you haven’t heard, Julianne Moore isn’t the least bit enthused with E! News’ red carpet mani cam. After the Oscar winner famously turned down the invite to show off her freshly painted nails at the SAG Awards 2015 in January, Moore discussed the reason behind her cold rejection of the now-retired mini red carpet camera.
“I’m 54 years old,” the Still Alice star said in the April 2015 issue of Harper’s Bazaar. “I can’t make my fingers walk; it’s humiliating!”
Moore went into great detail about why she refuses certain requests on the red carpet. “And a guy asked me to lift up my skirt to show them my shoes, and I said, ‘I don’t need to do that. Let’s keep some dignity,'” she explained. Other stars including Jennifer Aniston and Elisabeth Moss (who flipped off the mani cam at the 2014 Golden Globes) have made their dislike for the red carpet stunt known.
Even though the Oscar winner slayed on the 2015 red carpet in fabulous custom designs from Chanel Haute Couture to Givenchy, it took her awhile to hit her fashion stride. “There was one year when my kids were little, and every time I was photographed, I was wearing a pair of cargo shorts, a T-shirt, and a bandanna,” she said. “It was so bad, my publicist was like, ‘Get it together!'”
Moore spoke candidly about the stress that comes along with fitting into a one-of-a-kind gown. “We’d all be lying if we said we aren’t watching what we eat. Of course we are!” she said. “But, you know, I had a dress on the other day, and I said to my manager, ‘When you see my back fat sticking out, tuck it back in!'” she explained with a chuckle. “Be a friend.”
