Claire Danes is a ''sales slut''.

The 'Homeland' actress - who has previously been the spokesperson for Gucci accessories - admits she cannot stop herself from purchasing a bargain as soon as she sees one.

She said: ''I'm a sales slut. I'm just very seduced by a sale.''

The 32-year-old beauty - who is married to actor Hugh Dancy - admits she is also a big fan of high-end fashion, and counts Narciso Rodriquez and Miuccia Prada among her friends.

She said: ''Naciso Rodriguez was my first fashion Big Brother. He's made my wedding dress, which was wonderful. And we're friends with VALENTINO, I mean, we are friends with him! I adore him. Christopher Bailey made Hugh's wedding outfit and Miuccia Prada I'm friends with.''

Despite her friends in high places, blonde Claire admits she is much more comfortable in ''sweatpants'' than anything else.

She told ASOS magazine: ''It's funny with jeans now, because if they don't feel like a pair of sweatpants, I don't have patience for them anymore! I think I'm becoming increasingly lazy.''
