Ralph Fiennes insists he is not extravagant but appreciates the fact his success means he doesn't have to worry about money.
Ralph Fiennes is grateful he can go on nice holidays.
The 49-year-old actor - who is currently single - insists he is not extravagant with the wealth he has earned from his career, but feels lucky not to have to worry about the cost of things.
He said: "I can eat out in restaurants and go on holiday that might be on The Higher end of the price range, and not have the anxiety of 'f**k! I've got to pay this off.' "
While he has few extravagances, Ralph recently splashed out on an iPad but only uses the gadget to help with his admin.
He explained "I use it just for cross-referencing scheduling, for addresses and for the constant flow of e-mails."
Ralph is the eldest of six children and says his parents - writer Jennifer Lash and farmer-turned-photographer Mark Fiennes - were very open about their financial problems when he was younger.
He said: "My parents were very open about what worried them. And I can still hear my mother saying, 'You don't understand, your father is so overdrawn.'
"And you get that a few times and you start taking on the anxiety of the parents."
