Hollywood actor Will Smith tries his hardest to get out of paying for his clothes - despite his millions in the bank.

The 35-year-old rapper-turned-actor, whose latest movie I, ROBOT has just raked in $52.25 million (GBP29 million) at the American box office, is reluctant to spend big cash on clothing.

He says, "A $600 shirt? No! A $400 pair of shoes? That's crazy!

"Very, very rarely do I pay for anything I have on. I try to work stuff - if I'm wearing it to a premiere, I'll make sure it's in a magazine. Then they give it to me for free.

"Clothes are ridiculously expensive."
