Julianne Moore is a star who believes in aging gracefully.

The "Non-Stop" actress, 53, opened up to The Edit about why she has avoided plastic surgery.

"I'd like to think that I can age as naturally as possible," she said. "I don't want to come out condemning anything anybody does, because I think that all of these things can contribute to making people feel better about themselves, and that's great. But I also want to look like myself.

"I mean, we're not going to live forever," she continued. "You could be dead at 45, and guess what? Then you don't have to worry about aging. I feel like I'd like to be 90. I'd like to be 100. I may not be lucky enough to have that happen. But, boy, I'm going to try."

The mother of two has talked about the importance of eating vegetables, though also splurging from time to time. But her style habits are a little more rigid.

"After a certain age, you can't wear anything with words on it," she said. "Also, I don't wear a lot of color because, having red hair, I carry a lot of color with me.

"I read a quote from an actress who said, 'Only wearing black is like not taking chances,' and I was like, 'I guess I don't take chances then! I wear a lot of black!'"
