Julianne Moore’s Secret To The Perfect Body

Julianne Moore, the 52-year-old Carrie star, spoke to Health Magazine about the fitness and health regime which keeps her looking youthful and in shape. She spoke about her routine and the way in which she keeps herself healthy:

I try to do Ashtanga yoga two to three times a week,” she told Health in its November issue. “I’ve also started working out with a trainer, doing light weights and a lot of jumping around. The main problem is I can’t do anything six days straight because I get hurt. That’s the thing about old age, eventually your hip starts to hurt and you have to switch and do something else.

Moore spoke in a lot of detail as she responded to the questions in the interview, as you will see below. But she also spoke about her character in Carrie. Health Magazine asked Julianne Moore:

Let’s talk about your role in Carrie. You mostly based your character on the original depiction in the book, not the movie?

Julianne responded:

Yes, absolutely. I mean, listen—nobody’s going to beat Sissy Spacek and Piper Laurie. So it wasn’t about trying to repeat that; it was just telling the story in our way. The mother is obviously psychotic and a religious fanatic, and she and Carrie are this isolated little community of two where the child is her only world. And what was so striking, to me, was the idea of social isolation and what that does to a person. This poor little girl, trapped in her mother’s crazy world.

She said that at the age of 52 maintaining a slender figure takes a lot of hard work. She was asked if she is a fan of what are referred to as “cleanses.” She replied:

I did a silly juice cleanse [before the Golden Globes] for three days, which went all over the Internet as if I was a lunatic. I was eating vegetables, not eating sugar, being really careful. And when I was in yoga that week, I was so much more flexible. My teacher said, “Wow, you’re really bendy.” I’m like, “That’s what it is. It’s the food!” Because then you realize how important diet is. Dairy, sugar, alcohol—all those things affect you. [Her wrap sandwich arrives] So here I am, having a lot of cheese on my wrap. You can see how long that lasted. [Takes bite] Party time!
