The 42-year-old actress has admitted she "loves the art of fashion" but has hinted her height inhibits her from wearing certain garments because they are not designed to fit her body shape, which has forced her to opt for practicality.

Speaking to the Metro newspaper about her style and wardrobe choices, the flame-haired beauty said: "I'm not attracted to specific designers, but specific dresses and fabrics.

"I've never worn Pucci but I love it.

"I love the art of fashion but I'm five foot four, so it's not designed to be perfect on my body. My fashion is more practical because, alas, I'm not five foot ten and aged 16.

"It's one of the comments I get: 'Oh gosh, you're so small!' Ben Affleck said that."

And the 'American Hustle' star has revealed because of her "small feet" she doesn't get sent footwear from designer brands, which she calls "loan-ers".

She explained: "I have really small feet so it's hard to get 'loan-ers' [pairs loaned by designers]. But I love them."

However, the star has revealed she isn't "precious" about her belongings and regularly throws out a large number of her wardrobe staples.

She said: "I trash shoes, so I have to not be precious about it."

Meanwhile Amy has revealed her dramatic hair colour change influenced her acting career.

Speaking previously about the beauty overhaul, Amy - who first coloured her hair from strawberry blonde to dark red in 2004 for her role in TV show 'Dr. Vegas' - said: "Based on roles that I was getting, called in for, people were responding to certain types of characters with me as a blonde and the minute I went red, it was quirky and fun instead of flirtatious and dumb".
