Teri Hatcher loves swimming with whales and elephants.

The 48-year-old actress has an adventurous side and loves to splashing around in water with large mammals.

She told UK radio station Magic 105.4: ''I think I am the voice of reason, I also have a lot of adventure in me ... I have this thing with water, if there's a whale in the ocean, I'll just jump in and start swimming with it. When I was in Malaysia there was this dirty river, but there were elephants in it and I just though 'I have to go be there!' Maybe I have a good balance in me!''

Teri rose to fame on US TV series 'Desperate Housewives' where she played fun-loving Susan Delfino and is hoping to revisit her bubbly character in a big screen adaptation.

She previously said: ''I love the fans of the show so much, and they don't seem to be done with those characters. I think it would be great for them. If a script ever came across my lap, I would read it hoping that it would work out, but I don't really see that happening.''

Tune in to Magic 105.4 from 2pm on Sunday 11th August to hear the full interview.
