Julianne Moore: Toes Are Getting Cut Off

By: Amanda Crum - May 24, 2013

Julianne Moore never realized that she was having a wardrobe malfunction while walking the red carpet at Cannes until she got home and saw the pictures online.

Due to a busy night and a long dress, Moore never noticed that her toes were popping out the sides of her heels.

“I didn’t feel a thing — not a thing,” she said in a recent interview. “I felt fine! I was just walking along, like, ‘Hiiiii, I’m at Cannes’ and my toes are hanging off [my shoes]!”

The embarrassing moment led to her declaration that she had no option for avoiding another incident in the future but to cut her toes off.

“I did what every reasonable person would do,” she told Jimmy Fallon. “I needed to prevent this from happening again, so I cut my toes off.”

So far this year, the film festival has been fairly drama-free (off-screen, that is). Other than audience members booing Ryan Gosling’s movie, “Only God Forgives”, the incident being labeled “Toemageddon” is perhaps the most talked-about happening.
