London, May 31 : Gorgeous Kathleen Turner has confessed that she recently hitchhiked for the first time in Wales because she needed breakfast.
The Hollywood actress is currently in the UK for an appearance at the Hay Festival and told how she wanted to get some breakfast for herself and daughter Rachel, but the fridge in the cottage she was staying in was empty. "I decided I would go down and hitchhike so I could get to a store and get things for breakfast for my daughter and myself," the Mirror quoted her, as saying.
The 53-year-old said that a man called Martin stopped, picked her up and took her to a nearby petrol station with a shop.
She also described how on the way she revealed her identity to the shocked driver.
"He said he was going to the Hay Festival and I said, 'So am I. I'm the American actress Kathleen Turner.'
"He said, 'You're not?' He then agreed to wait outside the shop and he brought me back to the cottage. It's the first time I've ever hitchhiked in my life," she revealed.
As a reward for his kindness, the star of 'War Of The Roses', gave him front row tickets to the festival - where he sat listening to the tale along with the 800-strong audience.
