Holliday Grainger hates shopping so much, she only tends to do it at airports when waiting for a flight.

Actress Holliday Grainger still can’t believe she has a stylist.

The 27-year-old star found early success playing various characters on British TV shows, before hitting the Hollywood big time with period films like Jane Eyre, Anna Karenina and Great Expectations.

She’s now a fully fledged A-lister, which means she has a stylist on hand to help her dress for red carpet events.

“If you would have told me two years ago that I’d have a stylist I would have been like, ‘shut the f**k up. Who do you think you are?’” she laughed to Britain’s Marie Claire magazine. “But Rebecca Corbin-Murray offered to sort out clothes for me for BAFTA this year for free and it was so lovely and easy. You can literally say, ‘This is the kind of look I want’, and someone will do your shopping for you. And I hate shopping!”

Her dislike of shopping means Holliday only ever picks things up when she needs to kill time, including when she’s waiting for a flight. In fact at one stage the Cinderella actress’ wardrobe was completely dominated by airport purchases.

“I tend to only shop at airports when there’s that hour before your flight,” she explained. “There was a period of my life where my entire wardrobe was from Mango, because I was flying from Manchester airport a lot and at the time I was the only shop there I liked. Now if it’s from Heathrow it’s Zara or Fat Face - I have so many Fat Face swimming costumes.”
