Dame Helen Mirren has revealed that she buys her holiday clothes from charity shops.
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.
“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 pounds,” the Daily Star quoted her as saying.
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.”
