The 'Love and Friendship' star is such a huge fan of Kerrygold butter that she has to take it with her wherever she goes as she "finds it quite hard to get a hold of".

She said: "I find it quite hard to get a hold of. If I'm going from one city to another I'll put some in my suitcase to make sure I have it. I'm the crazy person traveling with butter."

And the 45-yerar-old actress likes to include butter in her diet, in moderation, as she feels it improves her skin compared to being on a low-fat diet.

She added to People magazine: "When I did 'Pearl Harbor', they had me on a very strict low-fat diet. I remember my mum coming and visiting me and going, 'You look so old.' I was 24 and I had lines on my face because I didn't have enough fat. And so now, I remember very early on meeting a great nutritionist and they said, 'One day everyone is going to say don't eat low-fat margarine or they are going to say eat butter or eat olive oil.' And it did take quite a long time, but I really noticed if I can eat coconut oil and butter and things like that, obviously in moderation, it makes almost an immediate effect on your skin. I don't think it is a myth. I think you can see the difference in a week or two."
