The beautiful actor Julianne Moore was not "perceived as pretty" until she replaced her glasses with contact lenses.

The Still Alice actor still doesn't understand why her classmates didn't think she was "terribly pretty" until she ditched her specs when she was 16-years-old, reports

"That's the thing about beauty, it's perceptual, not about what you look like,” she said.

"I had glasses and no-one thought I was terribly attractive. Then suddenly, I wore contacts and everyone thought I was pretty. But I was the same person perceived as pretty,” she added.

The 54-year-old actor, who has children Cal, 17, and Liv, 12, with husband Bart Freundlich, has also ruled out undergoing cosmetic surgery.

"I don't know why people have work done. It doesn't make them look younger, it just makes them look like they've had work done,” she said.

Added Moore: "You're never going to look like you did at 25. What are you going to do about it?"
