LOS ANGELES, April 17 (UPI) -- Demi Moore says she does not try to keep up with the Joneses like the supporting cast in her new movie, "The Joneses."
Moore and David Duchovny play a new couple in town, a stylish and seemingly successful pair with two gorgeous children who set off a spending spree among their suburban neighbors. Moore told Parade magazine she does not believe consumption should be an end in itself.
"There's nothing wrong with wanting things. It's just making sure that the stuff we acquire doesn't define us," she said. "I think we are born with that drive to want. It's when that becomes a measure of the value of ourselves that it goes askew, that's where we get confused. Having things is OK. It just can't become the end game."
Moore also said she finds sex scenes "very trying." She said filming them combines the practical side of all acting with the awkwardness of starting a relationship with someone new.
