Julianne Moore is the November covergirl of HEALTH magazine.
In this issue, Moore talks about everything from her mother’s death, to her workout regimen.
On her workout regime:
“I try to do Ashtanga yoga two to three times a week. 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 to do something else.”
On her mother’s death:
“I also had a period after my mother died where I couldn’t sleep. I mean, I was just in shock for the longest time and didn’t sleep for, like, a year. I was just a wreck. And I had some really intense acupuncture treatments, and it kind of reset my nervous system. So I think it’s very helpful.”
On her family’s diet:
“[They are pretty good eaters. They eat a lot of fruit- fruit’s easy – and certain vegetables. But my kids have always been allowed to have dessert. My husband thinks I’m too free and easy about that kind of stuff, but my kids will throw out a half-eaten ice cream cone if they’ve had enough, which I’ve never in my life been able to do.”
On her acting career:
“I can’t complain. I’ve been pretty lucky. And I think the more we talk about it, the more we make it real. I hate being asked this stuff! Let’s appreciate where we are. Let’s not wish our lives away.”
