Cross' Concerns Over Bree Part

DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES star MARCIA CROSS believed she was "jumping off a cliff" when she accepted the part of BREE VAN DE KAMP in the hit TV show.

The 42-year-old actress was concerned the obsessive-compulsive character in the hit American drama was too different from her own disorganised personality for her to give a convincing performance.

Cross says, "When I took this part, I felt I was jumping off a cliff because the character was so different from me.

"But since the show started I've had so many people come up to me and say, 'I was looking at cushions just like those', or 'I've bought a food basket just like yours', and I'm thinking, 'Uh... you would?'

"I love that people are loving the show, but judging by the reactions of people who meet me, I don't think there's any danger of confusing the real me with the character.

"I'm not obsessive-compulsive and I'm not even particularly neat - in fact, I'm quite messy.

"And cooking? If you saw me in the local grocery cart filled with pre-cooked food to heat up at home, you'd know I'm not Bree."
