Julianne Moore's daughter thinks she looks better air-brushed.

The 53-year-old actress admits Liv, 11, prefers her photographs when they've been professionally touched up as it erases the freckles she has on face and body.

Julianne told the March issue of Redbook magazine: ''Sometimes a magazine wants to see my actual skin, and other times they'll airbrush [the freckles] out. I don't care either way.

''[But] once my daughter [Liv] saw me on a cover where I had no freckles and said, 'That doesn't look like you at all!' And then - just like a kid - 'I like you better without them.' Thanks!''

The flame-haired beauty published a children's book in 2007 based on her childhood nickname, Freckleface Strawberry in a bid to tackle the stigma attached to freckles and red hair.

She previously said: ''When I read to children's groups, I warm up to them by asking, 'Have you ever seen anybody with as many freckles as I have?' And they all say, 'Nooo!' ''

Julianne - who also has 16-year-old son Calab - admitted recently she's learnt to love her freckles as she's grown older and it doesn't let them bother her like they did when she was in her teens.
