Washington, Mar 24 (ANI): Bond girl Olga Kurylenko has admitted that her poverty-stricken upbringing has made her very cash conscious.

The Quantum of Solace star said that the hardships she endured as a child have taught her the value of money.

Kurylenko said that she would always be careful with her finances - and refuses to waste money on frivolous items she doesn”t need.

This means that there’’s one celebrity trend the former Ukranian model would never follow - collecting shoes.

“I refused to go to school because my shoes had no soles. My mother insisted that I go, so I took a needle and thread and stitched the shoes so that my toes wouldn”t poke out at the end, Contactmusic quoted her, as saying.

“By the time I got to school the stitches had come out and my feet were on show. It was very upsetting. But those experiences taught me a lot about money. It’’s not important in my life. I don”t really think about it at all. Because I grew up with nothing I have no extravagances. I don”t want hundreds of shoes - just a few pairs that don”t need stitching up,” she added. (ANI)
