Jennifer Connelly Recycles Clothes

Green queen Jennifer Connelly sporting Balmain at a premiereA true green woman, Jennifer Connelly still wears shoes she bought when she was fifteen.

The 38-year-old actress hates throwing away clothes as she thinks that it is wasteful, but admits she sometimes keeps items for too long.

“I tend to recycle. I have Doc Martens I’ve had since I was 15 that I still wear. I have to retire them soon because they are falling apart!”

Although Jennifer has become known for her show-stopping red-carpet looks—she wore a green jewel-encrusted Balmain minidress to the premiere of He’s Just Not That Into You earlier this year—she insists that her favorite outfit is comfortable jeans teamed with a T-shirt and boots.

She also finds shopping stressful, admitting her determination to find the perfect piece sometimes ruins trips to stores: “I like nice things, and I’m quite considered in my taste and thorough in my decisions. I have little patience for shopping because I get overwhelmed. There is too much stimulus and choice.”

Jennifer is not the only star who likes to recycle her clothes— doesn’t agree with throwing pieces away just because they are old and prefers to wear clothes from several seasons ago. “I get upset when designers won’t lend me something from three seasons ago because I’m like, ‘That was your better season. This season sucks,’” the “I Kissed a Girl” singer said.
