Helena Bonham Carter cuts a lonely figure as she sports messy bunches to grab coffee after a shopping spree 

She recently admitted that she felt 'massive grief' after splitting from long-term partner Tim Burton in 2014. 

But Helena Bonham Carter seemed content in her own company as she grabbed coffee in Hampstead Heath on Friday. 

Taking a break from her shopping spree, the 50-year-old actress seemed to be enjoying some time out as she soaked up the sights on London.

Looking uncharacteristically low-key, the Fight Club star donned a ditsy print dress that she wore beneath an oversized black hoodie. 

Opting for comfort, but still looking chic, Helena slipped her feet into platform sandals, whilst she slung a large brown handbag over her shoulder. 

She finished off the look with her curly chestnut coloured locks styled in messy bunches, resting her glasses on top of her head.

Helena has been single since since splitting from Tim, her partner of 13 years and father of her two children, in December 2014.   

The pair famously didn't marry during their relationship and unconventionally lived in two adjoining houses in London.   

Speaking to Harper's Bazaar magazine earlier this year, she admitted wanted to put 'handle with care' tape across her forehead because she felt so fragile and described the process as going through 'massive grief'.

But Helena will be kept busy with her work in Ocean's Eight, the all-female spinoff of the Ocean's Eleven crime caper franchise.

Whilst production on the film has not yet started, Helena joins a stellar line-up that includes Cate Blanchett, Sandra Bullock, Anne Hathaway and Rihanna. 

The film will focus on the plans of a female crime ring planning to met the iconic Met Ball, but a release date has yet to be announced.
