London: 'The King's Speech' star Helena Bonham Carter feels upset when she reads negative comments about her personal style because she loves dressing-up so much.
The 47-year-old British actress regularly pulls off the most eccentric of red carpet looks with an air of confidence, but says she takes it personally when she reads hurtful comments about her gothic-inspired style, reported
"I'm not indelibly confident. I love clothes and I love dressing-up, and I love the way that it makes me feel. So I'm always disillusioned when I see a photo of myself - which I try not to - because I think, 'No! That's not what I meant at
all," she said.
"Any insult is hurtful, though, because you always think you look OK. Otherwise you wouldn't leave the house looking like you do, would you?"
