British actress Tilda Swinton enjoys gambling so much, she once lived off her winnings from one horse race bet for a whole year.

The YOUNG ADAM star admits gambling has long been a passion of hers - and she still indulges herself despite being a successful actress.

She says, "I am a certified gambler. I used to put money on horses. I'm very proud of the fact that I once kept myself alive for a year on my winnings from one race."
