The actress believes in walking tall, and by that we mean wearing what she refers to as “stripper shoes”. When gracing the red carpet, Helen favoured a pair of heels that cost her a mere $39, she revealed later in an interview with Jay Leno. She wore them every time she was nominated for awards as they gave her 18 centimetres of extra height, which made her feel more con dent. The outcome? Back-toback Emmy awards.
