The British actress revealed that her other half rarely buys new underwear and dislikes her going on spending sprees.
The Daily Telegraph quotes her as saying: "When I whimper as I watch him pulling his ancient, baggy and fake Calvin Klein pants up over his perfectly formed six-pack to his chin, he snaps, 'Oh, stop it. These'll be perfect for the next five years'.
"If I buy anything, I lie about it, hide it, or stain/chip it slightly and claim it was 75p in the Scope [charity] shop. I have successfully managed to introduce three pairs of shoes, a handbag and a Fedora, all by Donna Karan, using this deception."
