    Julianne recently explained that as a teen, she wanted to "fit in" with the other kids, most of whom didn't share her freckles or pale skin.

    And while she didn't really mess with her hair or skin, the same can't be said for her eyebrows.

    "As a teenager and as a young adult, I kept plucking them, bleaching them, doing all sorts of things to them, so they are really completely gone," Julianne revealed to The Times.

    In fact, she says that the brows that you do see are totally "drawn on now" and it's pretty difficult to "find the right kind of color too."

    Julianne isn't letting her daughter Liv make the same mistakes either, and urges her to leave her brows alone.

    "Liv has red hair and the most gorgeous dark eyebrows and I tell her, ‘Please don’t touch them. I really mean it. And don’t let anybody else touch them, either,'" Julianne said.

    Nowadays, Julianne says she cares less about her appearance and has learned to embrace her freckles and red hair more.

    "I think it’s because you have other things that you are interested in, such as family, relationships, work, or your community. Being myopic about the way you look recedes," Julianne shared, adding, "I don’t think it goes away entirely...But the degree to which you are interested in that, and the fruitlessness of that, becomes apparent as you get older."
