Marcia Cross has recently revealed she’s been trying hard to remain thin.
The actress, who plays neurotic Bree Van De Kamp in the ABC hit show Desperate Housewives, confessed that staying in shape is quite a living nightmare.
"Staying thin is torture. I try and eat healthily, but there's no secret to being thin - I wish there was. I exercise when I can, but some days when I'm working I just don't have the time. But I try not to obsess about it", Marcia said.
The 43-year-old star wishes that the young starlets will plump up and fight back the Hollywood pressure of remaining thin.
"The younger girls in Hollywood are emaciated and I think it is so sad. Why can't we be women? I want curves, so I have treats I still eat all the brownies I want”, Marcia added to Britain's Grazia magazine.
The actress is also concerned that she might soon turn into Bree Van De Kamp…
Marcia Cross has also confessed she has become obsessed with cleaning and cooking just like her character since getting engaged to stockbroker Tom Mahoney.
"I was getting anxious because Tom would come home and I would feel like there should be food on the table. But Tom sat me down and said, "Honey, it's not the 1950s. I'm a grown man we can work this out." But I still worry about it, I want to cook better so I'm working on it", Marcia revealed.
"When you love somebody you really want them to eat well. So I'm always thinking about that. I can't believe I sit their going, "Eat your vegetables," but I do it", the actress added.
