Julia Fox admits that getting a Hermes bag from Kanye West on her birthday gave her anxiety.

A month after the controversial couple split, the actress opens up about how it feels to be given such a grandiose gift. According to Fox, she has barely used her Birkin because it's "scary."

Last month, Ye gifted Fox and four of her best friends Hermes Birkin totes. The budget was reportedly not a concern for the rapper, who tasked his personal shopper to secure not just one but five bags - a challenging feat since Birkin bags have a long waitlist and can't be purchased in-store.

According to Page Six, Ye specifically requested an exotic skin Birkin for Julia and gave the shopper only four or five days to get the bags.

Fox and friends were over the moon when they received the gifts, posing on Instagram with their new totes on display.

In a new revelation, the Uncut Gems star spoke to the New York Times about how she really feels having an ostrich Birkin, worth about $45,000.

"I don't know if you know about owning a Birkin when you're not a rich person, but it's like the most anxiety-inducing thing ever," she said.

"You're checking on the Birkin, making sure it's still there, that it didn't magically grow wings. It's scary to have a Birkin. It's a lot of pressure."

It turns out that Fox has barely used her Birkin and it remains preserved in its orange box.

She did, however, find herself a new go-to bag - one that's not as expensive and more in line with her style.

Fox was recently photographed toting around the Alexander Wang Denim Hobo Bag, priced at $595. The actress has been spotted carrying this bag twice, pairing it with her denim pieces.

While her shortlived romance with Ye is over and done, Fox has kept her edgy street style, which West heavily influenced. She even made a tutorial on recreating her infamous "fox eye" - a look that she wore in her dates with Ye.

Fox also came to his defense recently, after being asked about the rapper's disturbing music video where he is killing Pete Davidson, his ex-wife's new boyfriend.

"No, Kanye's harmless," Fox responded. "I just think that's his artistic creative expression. I know it's aggressive, but… I think that if it really came down to it, I don't think Kanye would hurt a fly."
