London: She may be close to turning 50, but Academy award winning actress Julianne Moore proved that age is no barrier when it comes to looking good.

The `Boogie Nights` star showed off her trim figure and porcelain skin in a bondage bikini during a photoshoot for Allure magazine.

The 49-year-old had the perfect accessory for the shoot, a barely clad male model, reported Daily Mail online.

But unlike many of her Hollywood contemporaries, the actress says she is not a fan of cosmetic surgery.

"I don`t believe it makes people look better. I think it just makes them look like they had something done to their face, and I don`t think we find that instinctually appealing," said the actress.

Moore adds that she isn`t worried about getting older.

"I`m always shocked by people who talk about not being middle-aged. I`m like, `How old do you think you`re going to live? Let`s double your age and see where you get`," said the actress.

But the mother-of-two shows no signs of slowing down. She had created a buzz by posing nude for the luxury label Bvlgari and plans to continue modelling.

"I like to call myself the hundred-year-old model," she said.

Moore, who is attracting Oscar buzz for her role as a lesbian housewife in `The Kids Are All Right`, says she doesn`t understand the fuss about kissing a woman.

"I don`t really think it`s different kissing a woman versus a man. The difference is kissing someone you know versus someone you don`t," she said.
