Helena Bonham Carter has some words of advice for all the single ladies during lockdown — get a vibrator.

“The Crown” star offered her pearls of wisdom while appearing in a campaign for the dating app Bumble.

“Get a vibrator,” she said. “And a weighted blanket for hugs.”

She added, “Also, do nothing. When the world is going crazy, when you are in shock from something, these are times to do nothing, be still. Forget progress. Just be. Aim for tea in the afternoon and nothing more ambitious.”

The Oscar nominee revealed that this year of lockdown has been “incredibly difficult” for her single pals.

“Women can often blame themselves but the fact is, it’s been an impossible year,” she said. “But impossibility is still the mother of creativity and there are still ways to meet people online.”

Bonham Carter, 54, has been dating writer Rye Dag Holmboe, 32, for two years. She had a long relationship with director Tim Burton with whom she shares son Billy, 17, and daughter Nell, 12. The two split in 2014.
