Helena Bonham Carter has said she doesn't want a stylist because she hates being told what to do.

The British actress is known for her quirky fashion sense, and has even been known to wear odd shoes to showbiz events.

But she told E! News that she is unlikely to turn to a professional for style tips.

"I've had a stylist once or twice, but it doesn't really work out because basically, I don't like being told what to wear," said Helena, 48.

"I don't like being told what to do, so there's no point.

"A lot of people suggest that I should."

Helena has found herself on a few worst-dressed lists in her time, but the Harry Potter star revealed she isn't too worried about what people think of the outfits she puts together.

"At the end of the day, whatever," she said.
