Charlie's Angels beauty Drew Barrymore has found a new way to keep herself trim - she's taken up running.

The 29-year-old actress, who is dating STROKES drummer Fabrizio Moretti, used to detest jogging but has learnt to appreciate the physical and mental benefits of the exercise.

She says, "I picked up running because I needed an outlet. Plus gravity definitely does have an affect on the body at a certain point."

Close pal Cameron Diaz adds, "She's more athletic than even she would admit. I think running brings clearness to her mind."
