Actress Julianne Moore has given up on her dream of achieving the perfect body - quitting her lengthy gym workouts so she can spend more time with her friends.
The Hours star resents the Hollywood obsession with super-skinny figures and admits she gets lonely when she dedicates hours of her time to exercise.
Moore, who recently broke down on TV over the death of her mother in April (09), admits she could look better if she wanted to but has decided to live her life to the full instead.
She says, "I don't think I look particularly fantastic. I know you're not supposed to drink caffeine and I know you're not supposed to drink wine but I do both.
"I could be much thinner if I really worked at it. But there was a time when I was exercising a lot and then I realised that the person I was spending the most time with was my trainer. I thought: 'I don't have time to see my friends!"
