Heather Graham 'has finally got to grips with sex'

Heather Graham could be more eager to buy condoms today than at any other point in her life, as the Hollywood star has admitted she's finally started feeling good about what goes on between the sheets.

The blonde beauty, whose film credits include Boogie Nights - a movie about the porn industry - told Women's Health that she is getting to grips with intimacy.

Graham, 43, explained: "It's an aspect of my personality. Sex is a part of who I am and it took me a long time to feel good about it."

The actress, who also starred alongside Mike Myers in Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me, said she was unsure whether it was a good or bad to be a woman who finds sex very enjoyable.

It was also difficult for Graham to come to terms with being seen as a sex symbol, especially as she described herself as "just this big nerd".
