Washington (ANI): British actress Helena Bonham Carter has slammed
perceptions projecting her as ''posh'', insisting the title to be
the ''biggest lie''. The Alice In Wonderland star insisted she
should not be judged on the basis of her name or relatives, which
include a baron, a baroness and former British Prime Minister,
"Everyone thinks I'm posh but that's shallow thinking and the
biggest lie. They only think I'm posh because I've got three
names," Contactmusic quoted her as saying. The 43-year-old further
revealed she was happy to be relieved off the 'corset sex symbol'
She added: "Ageing has helped hugely. There's no question I'm a
better actor, and you leave behind a certain typecasting. I was
like the corset bimbo. Well, not quite bimbo, but you know what I
mean. The corset sex symbol, I suppose. Now I'm not going to be the
sex symbol, I''m going to be the granny."
