Mirren Buys Charity Clothes For Holidays
DAME HELEN MIRREN loves to bag a bargain - the Oscar winner buys her holiday clothes from charity shops while she's on her travels.
The Queen star admits she never takes her own garments away with her, instead choosing to pick up outfits from second-hand stores as soon as she arrives at her destination.
She says, "I love a good charity shop, especially when I'm travelling. When I'm going to cold places, I take nothing - just underwear. On my way from the airport, I ask the driver to take me to a good charity shop, and I buy boots, socks, trousers, jumpers, sweaters, hats and scarves - usually for £30."
But the actress never keeps the items: "On the way back to the airport, I have it all in a big bag and drop it off at another charity shop."
