Helena Bonham Carter is delighted with her raunchy new look in men's magazine Maxim and admits she would never have gone so far had it not been for the months she spent in an ape outfit. The actress underwent hours in the make-up chair every day for her role as Ari in Planet Of The Apes and she was keen to show the world she was a real woman underneath the fur. She says, "I spent the last six months being an ape and I actually started thinking that people preferred me as an ape. But the Maxim spread is as far as I go - there's no way I'd ever strip off completely." Bonham Carter's sexy Maxim spread features the actress posing in an assortment of classy lingerie.
