* AdaptationalAttractiveness: Quite a few of the characters she's played have been described/portrayed as hideous in the original book/play, and then ''she'' gets cast as them in the film versions. See ''HarryPotter'', ''SweeneyTodd'', and ''LesMiserables''.

* TakeThat: She was on the receiving end of a pretty big one which she found hard to live down. Helena compained in an interview that people found her hard to take seriously because [[SoBeautifulItsACurse she was both pretty and upper middle-class]]. This incensed her peer [[Series/GimmeGimmeGimme Kathy Burke]] who came back with this immortal riposte:
-->“As a lifelong member of the non-pretty working classes, I would like to say to Helena Bonham Carter (wholly pledged member of the very pretty upper-middle classes): shut up, you stupid cunt.”

* FakeAmerican: In ''Film/FightClub'', ''Film/BigFish'', ''Film/DarkShadows'' and ''Film/TheLoneRanger.''
* HideYourPregnancy: She was pregnant during ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheHalfBloodPrince'' and ''Film/SweeneyToddTheDemonBarberOfFleetStreet''. This is why she spends parts of those movies hiding behind the furniture, and her costume seems to change size and shape.


Added DiffLines:

* MeanCharacterNiceActor: Some of her roles have her playing very nasty, cruel and unlikeable characters (''Film/FightClub'' and ''Film/HarryPotter'' stand out). In real life, she seems to be none of those things.


Added DiffLines:

* TypeCasting: Once upon a time, she was most famous for playing rosy-cheeked ingénues?[[note]]Well, not so much [[{{Hamlet}} Ophelia...]][[/note]] [[PlayingAgainstType Breaking out of one type]] (read: ''Film/FightClub'') led to it becoming her new type!
** With hindsight, her performance as the scheming Kate Croy in 1997's ''The Wings of the Dove'' -- complete with a healthy dose of {{Fanservice}} -- was the moment that critics noticed that she was starting to rise above typecasting. ''Fight Club'', two years later, merely sealed the deal, albeit with a resounding slam.
** Her role in the live action version of ''Cinderella'' seems to be this. She's playing the FairyGodmother, without a touch of irony.
** PlayingWithCharacterType: Her portrayal of Elizabeth in ''Film/MaryShelleysFrankenstein'' is sort of a merger of her two well-known types (before her second one had been established).
* WhatCouldHaveBeen:
** Was nearly cast as Sarah in Creator/JimHenson's ''Film/{{Labyrinth}}''.
** Was also the first choice for Bess in ''Film/BreakingTheWaves'' but dropped out due to personal problems with the film's ending.
** She was one of the actresses considered for the lead role in ''[[Literature/BridgetJones Bridget Jones's Diary]]'', so if she had that role she could've starred in two movies with Creator/ColinFirth as her paramour.
