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, Herbert Asquith.
"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' tag.
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."
