PHANTOM OF THE OPERA star Emmy Rossum has a simple method of watching what she eats - she won't touch anything that isn't natural.

The 18-year-old beauty refuses to sample delights including hamburgers and chocolate because they don't come from what she perceives to be an organic source.

She explains, "I don't eat junk food, sweets or chocolate, just because they don't make me feel good.

"It's funny, but my philosophy is that I try to eat foods that look as close as possible to the way they were in nature, like fruits and vegetables and fish.

"Because, really, have you ever seen a muffin growing on a tree."
