Los Angeles - Halle Berry's husband Olivier Martinez "calls her out'' on her clothing if he doesn't like what she's wearing.

The 48-year-old actress has admitted she has become a lot more careful about what she wears since tying the knot with the French actor in July 2013 because she insists women in his homeland don't dress as casually as she is used to.

She said: "I have definitely changed as a result of being married to a French husband.

"French women would not put their sweats on and run out to the market. So I care more about what I wear out of the house, because if not, he calls me out on it."

Halle - who has 12-month-old son Maceo with Olivier - also hinted she feels the need to wear matching underwear because she believes French women think long and hard about what briefs to wear on a daily basis.

Speaking to Yahoo Style, she added: "They put a lot of energy into their outerwear, but also their underwear.

"They're not going to get caught in an emergency room without being prepared."

However, this has inspired the star - who also has six-year-old daughter Nahla from her five-year relationship with model Gabriel Aubry - to recently re-launch lingerie brand Scandale at affordable prices.

Speaking about the organisation, she said: "I thought, 'Who can really afford expensive underwear?' "
