Tilda Swinton talks Simple Scottish life. The British actress, and Beach actress explains to fans just how she lives her life, no makeup, no television and cooks “peasant” food at home. She as won and Oscar, and spends most of her free time at her Scottish Highlands home saying she is quite far from the Hollywood glamour. She wants to just live as simple as a life that she can,even even dresses in her son’s clothes and makes homemade simple meals. She tells Britain’s Mail on Sunday,
“When I’m at home I’m not into material things. I don’t even own a television. Money goes a long way in Scotland.
“I’m not much of one for looking in the mirror. If I look good, it’s to do with good genes, living in the Highlands of Scotland, not wearing make-up when I don’t have to, and just the luck of the draw.
“I wear what I want to wear, and am lucky to have friends who are designers who make me beautiful clothes to wear in public.
“But I turn into a pumpkin when I go home. These days I wear a lot of my son’s cast-offs – I can do this because he’s taller than me.
“And when I cook it’s with vegetables I grow and eggs from my hens. I’m a really Scottish peasant cook. I could cook you a fine Thai curry but really I prefer nursery food – shepherd’s pie and milk puddings and soups.”
