Hawes' Assistant Stole From Her
British actress KEELEY HAWES was left stunned after discovering a former aide stole thousands of pounds from her bank account.
The Death at a Funeral star lost $10,500 (£7,000) after an ex-employee siphoned it off to spend in U.K. supermarket chain Tesco.
The funds were taken from one of Hawes' rarely-used savings accounts - and she admits she might not have realised the money was missing if authorities hadn't alerted her to the crime.
She explains, "It was very clever. I was actually quite impressed when it all came out, for managing to spend £7,000 in Tesco. I mean, how do you do that?"
