Playing Julianne Moore Reveals Her Natural, Uncontrollable Hair to Ellen DeGeneres

Julianne Moore is known for her striking red hair, but she definitely didn't wake up like this!

The Oscar-winning actress revealed her hair in its natural state during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, airing Wednesday, which is sure to take plenty of her fans by surprise.

Moore, 54, called this 'do her "summer hair."

"Somebody did this to my hair -- I can't do this to my hair," she admitted, referring to her current silky strands. "I can't blow dry my hair. I can't straighten it out."

"My hair is wavy as I like to say, but really, it's frizzy," she further explained. "So in the summertime, I just let it go. I just let it be and I try not to go anywhere because I can't control my hair."

But Moore got serious when talking about her new film, Freeheld, which stars her and Ellen Page as real-life lesbian couple Laurel Hester (Moore) and Stacie Andree (Page). Hester, a New Jersey police lieutenant, and her registered domestic partner, Stacie, battle to secure Hester's pension benefits in the film, when she's diagnosed with terminal cancer.

Moore acknowledged that the film is especially meaningful given that Page actually filmed her role shortly after coming out.

"I think it was a meaningful project because she had been attached to it as a producer for so long that it meant so much to her personally," Moore said. "And it was meaningful for me to talk to Ellen about her experiences, and for her to talk about what it means to be closeted and to then come out, and the repercussions in your personal life and in your professional life. Ellen and I got very close."

ET caught up with Page, 28, late last month at the Freeheld premiere in New York City, when she talked about what it meant for her to be able to openly love her girlfriend, surfer/artist Samantha Thomas.

"So far, that's not something I've experienced in my life," Page said. "And to love someone openly, to hold someone's hand walking down the street, it's a beautiful, beautiful, beautiful thing, and I'm just lucky enough to have someone in my life as special as her."
