ANNA FRIEL DUMPED MOSS TO SAVE REPUTATION British actress ANNA FRIEL ditched former friend KATE MOSS after British tabloids published pictures of the supermodel taking cocaine - in a bid to avoid tarnishing her own career. The LAND GIRLS star quickly realised her reputation was too important to risk continuing their friendship and immediately severed all ties with the supermodel. Friel says, "When I moved to New York for a year my priorities changed. "I lost touch with a lot of people in London. "When I came back things were different and the tabloids were full of tales of drinks, drugs and partying. I didn't want to be guilty by association. I just thought, 'I don't know if I want to do that anymore.' "I started to focus on my career. I love my job so much I don't want to ruin it by having a reputation."Meanwhile ANNA FRIEL's husband DAVID THEWLIS is so determined not to miss seeing his three-month-old daughter GRACIE's early days, he's bought a camera phone so he can see and speak to her every day.

Work commitments mean HARRY POTTER star THEWLIS is filming in America, and Friel credits modern technology with making the split bearable.

She says, "I miss him so much and I know he misses us.
"Babies change so much every day when they're little so the camera is a life-saver. It means David sees Gracie every day, making being apart that little bit easier to bear."
