I remember what it’s like to be hungry, says Olga Kurylenko

London: Olga Kurylenko has revealed that being born poor is what keeps her grounded as a movie star.

“Growing up, I was extremely poor. I lived in a tiny Soviet communal apartment with four small rooms shared by six adults from my extended family and several children,” the Daily Mail quoted her as saying.

“My mother had no money to buy me clothes so everything I wore had to be patched up and then patched up again. I’ll never forget what it’s like to go without. It means that I have very few extravagances. I squirrel my earnings away.

“The only thing I like to splash out on is food. I remember what it’s like to be hungry and to dream of beautiful meals,” she said.
