Julianne Moore Hates the "Mani-Cam"

Listen up, E!: Julianne Moore is throwing down the gauntlet over the mani-cam.

The newly-minted Oscar winner took a moment in her “Harper’s Bazaar” cover story to talk about how heinous she finds certain parts of the red carpet machine (as “Harper’s” puts it, she’ll twirl but “she ain’t doing no mani-cam).

“I’m 54 years old. I can’t make my fingers walk; it’s humiliating!” she tells the publication. “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.”

As Moore explains, looking good during awards season is hard enough without the added pressure of putting your hands inches away from an HD camera.

“We’d all be lying if we said we aren’t watching what we eat. Of course we are! I think we’re also really stressed,” she tells “Harper’s.” “I’m not a stress eater. I get nervous and I don’t eat.”

As Moore warns, “It’s not all glamorous at all, by the way.” Maybe not all, but Julianne’s Oscar look was as glam as it gets. Weigh in on her comments down below!
