Julianne Moore - Julianne Moore Learning To Dive

Actress Julianne Moore has big summer plans - she's conquering her lifelong fear of water and learning how to dive.
The Kids Are All Right star admits she was never brave enough to take lessons as a child, but she's determined to master the art of a graceful plunge - even if it's taken her 15 years.
During an appearance on U.S. show Late Night with Jimmy Fallon on Thursday (28Jul11), she explained, "I've been learning how to dive for 15 years... I came to swimming kind of late so I figured, once I mastered that, that was enough, right? I didn't have to learn how to dive too. (I could) just step in. Or cannon ball in... I mean why go in head first? Because that seems kind of ridiculous to me... you don't want to hurt yourself.
"But people say things to me like, 'You can't dive?' Like, 'You can't open a door with a key?' But, I had to learn the (same) way... they teach kids. Where you sit on the side of the pool, with one knee up and one leg bent, and you know they (the coaches) say, 'Just fall in the pool.' So I spent a few years like that."
