Helena Bonham Carter has revealed that she longed to be a Charlie's Angel as a child.

The actress, who was 10 when Charlie's Angels first aired in 1976, admitted that she fantasised about being a woman that fought crime.

She told OK: "I dreamed of being one of Charlie's Angels."

Bonham Carter also explained that when she was nominated for the 'Best Actress' Oscar for 1997's The Wings of the Dove, she was relieved that she did not win.

She said: "It felt like my name never came… then it was my turn, and it was so quick, and Helen Hunt won. I felt relieved I didn't have to go up and give this big speech. I just wanted to get a drink.

"I suddenly became more mainstream, more attractive to Hollywood. I became a name. It certainly did [change my life]… you get all this intensive exposure and become very marketable - yet it only lasts about two months."
