A little hump day hilarity for you in which Julianne Moore fact checks InStyle magazine in the most public way possible. The lady mag tweeted out a link to an interview with the actress where she details how she gets red carpet ready. “I like a good spray tan—it’s a must,” she told the magazine. Seems like a pretty acceptable answer — except Julianne says she wasn’t being serious when she said it.
When the mag tweeted Julianne’s beauty regimen, the actress swiftly responded to set the record straight.
@InStyle oh my gosh, u know I was joking about the spray tan, right?

Oops. When we think about it, of course she was kidding. The star’s fair complexion is a dead giveaway that she probably isn’t hitting the tanning salon prior to the red carpet, but her comments could have confused the interviewer: “You have no idea how white I am because this is tan! Can you imagine what I’d look like without one? That would be horrible.” We can see how someone would have mistaken her self-deprecating joke for a real admission.
Alas, these things tend to happen when Mercury is in retrograde.
