Maggie Gyllenhaal's Shopping Therapy

Maggie Gyllenhaal finds shopping therapeutic.

The 'Crazy Heart' actress says indulging in some retail therapy when she's stressed calms her down and really enjoys going to one-off boutiques.

She told Britain's InStyle magazine: "Shopping calms me down. I really love Portobello Road in London and there's a beautiful store there called Aime on Ledbury Road. Little boutiques that carry small designers are best for finding hidden gems. There's a New York brand called No 6 that I love and also Dries Van Noten, Lanvin and Isabel Marant."

Maggie is nominated for Best Supporting Actress at this Sunday's (07.03.10) Oscars and admits she will be using a stylist to help get her ready for the prestigious event.

She said: "I use a stylist for events. She gets a bunch of clothes and I try things on to see what feels like me and what feels right for the event. Sometimes things click into place, like the Lanvin dress I wore to the Golden Globes last year. It didn't need an alteration or some funny bra to make it work at all. I was like, 'This is the one!' "
