London: Hollywood actress Mandy Moore thinks she is a `boring homebody` and cites her stable family background as the reason behind it.

The 26-year-old star, who shot to fame as a singer at the age of 15 credits her family with helping her stay grounded and avoid the trappings of fame.

"I am boring first and foremost. I`m a boring homebody. You know what? I always like to think that I owe so much to my family.

"I love my parents - I have a really great, strong support system in my family and always have, and my parents sacrificed so much for me to be able to realise this dream that I had at a real young age," Moore said.

The `A Walk to Remember` star, who is married to musician Ryan Adams, loves to stay busy with work, but likes to hang out to avoid getting trapped into the showbiz lifestyle, Femalefirst reported.

"Being busy with work certainly keeps me grounded but then also realising the lineation between working and still having a private life, a personal life for yourself. Finding that balance I think is essential in having some semblance of groundedness in your life," she added.
