Helena wore her hair in a messy updo and perch her glasses on top of her head while choosing to go makeup free. 

She picked up some shopping during her trip before stopping to speak with a friend, who also wrapped up warm in a padded coat. 

It comes as claimed there would be ‘millions’ of people who could be cancelled if you ‘looked closely enough’ at their personal life.

When asked about the topic during a new interview with the Sunday Times, Helena said: ‘Do you ban a genius for their sexual practices? There would be millions of people who if you looked closely enough at their personal life you would disqualify them.

‘You can’t ban people. I hate cancel culture. It has become quite hysterical and there’s a kind of witch-hunt and a lack of understanding.’

Helena, who has worked alongside a host of the stars at the centre of the #MeToo movement including Harvey Weinstein and Woody Allen, declared that there is ‘no way back’ for some high profile celebrities, as she name checked Kevin Spacey.

Kevin continues to face legal issues involving sexual misconduct, and is currently facing four counts of sexual assault against three complainants in the United Kingdom, with a trial date set for June 2023.

However Helena claimed that her Sweeney Todd co-star Johnny Depp, 59, has been ‘completely vindicated’, since he was first accused of domestic abuse by his ex-wife Amber Heard. 

Helena said that Johnny ‘certainly went through it’, as she referred to the highly-publicised libel trial with Heard, as he accused her of defaming him by labelling him a domestic abuser in a 2018 op-ed.

Johnny is the godfather to her children Billy Ray, 18, and Nell, 14, who she shares with her ex Tim Burton – the director of a series of films which star both Helena and Johnny.

Claiming that the allegations against Johnny didn’t quite ring true, she said: ‘There’s something quite old-fashioned about Johnny, with these manners.’

Helena also discussed the ‘hounding’ of JK Rowling, who has also been an influential star at the eye of a ‘cancel culture’ storm due to her views on female-only spaces.

Discussing the treatment of JK, which has ranged from trolling online to burning her books, Helena branded it: ‘horrendous and a load of b****cks.’
