Secret Shoe Smuggler Emma Thompson

Emma Thompson has to hide new shoes from her husband.

The British actress - who is married to her 'Sense and Sensibility' co-star Greg Wise - loves buying lavish footwear and has come up with several novel ways of smuggling new pairs into her home without upsetting her spouse.

She said: "He says, '"Please don't tell me that there's another pair of shoes coming into the house?' So I have to hide them, or scuff them so that they don't look new, or pretend that they cost 75p in a charity shop."

When she does manage to bring home designer shoes, Emma is often met with amusing comments from Greg.

Discussing her latest purchase of patent Chanel boots, the 50-year-old star quipped: "He gave me a Nazi salute."

The 43-year-old actor also disliked the eyelash extensions Emma recently experimented with.

She explained: "He recoiled in horror with the words, 'Spider attack, spider attack!' "

Emma and Greg have a ten-year-old daughter Gaia together. In 2003, they informally adopted a 16-year-old Rwandan refugee named Tindyebwa Agaba, and are fighting his deportation back to the African nation.

While Greg is often critical of her fashion choices, Emma is adamant her spouse has host of redeeming characteristics.

She added to stella magazine: "He can cook, wash up, clean, entertain children, understand maths homework, put up shelves, take them down and put them up elsewhere and repair the little holes left behind, drive sensibly but fast on motorways and get on with my mother."
