According to Yahoo News, Helena Bonham Carter is “addicted” to Candy Crush Saga.
The Young and Prodigious T.S. Spivet actress tries to limit the access her children Billy, 10, and Nell, 6, have to gaming devices, but feels a bit hypocritical because she plays the sweet-swapping game whenever she can.
She said: “The challenge is to find something we all like doing and to get the children away from the screens, like iPads. Although I can’t be too strict as I’m a bit addicted to Candy Crush.”
When they’re not playing computer games, Helena says her family love to get creative together, with her partner Tim Burton being a gifted artist.
She added: “Like anyone else we need to eat, run a household, but we’re good at games and making things. Tim is good at drawing and painting, that’s the one thing we like to do together, drawing and painting and making things.”
And the brunette beauty is fascinated by her kids’ imaginations.
She added to Britain’s HELLO! magazine: “Pretty much every child is born with imagination. I love my children and their unique perspective. A kid’s take on things is totally original, until it gets stamped out of them by school and the rest of us. The need to conform is pretty endemic in society.”
Helena Bonham Carter is worried she’s doing “badly” at parenting, says Contact Music.
The 48-year-old actress admits finds it difficult juggling her career with caring for Billy, 10, and Nell, six – her children with partner Tim Burton – and she is often left feeling she isn’t doing anything as well as she could.
She told HELLO! magazine: “Juggling motherhood with acting is hard and I’m always dropping balls all the time. You always feel you’re doing everything badly.”
“Tim’s taking time out now and I think I’ll do the same. We’re trying to be parents, which is harder than anything else.”
Helena knows she is in a ‘lucky’ position with her career, but admits her busy schedule leaves her exhausted. She explained: “The multi-tasking is tiring. I’m not saying it’s a big deal, not if you enjoy your work, and I’m lucky enough to make a living from something I love, but there’s always something.”
Despite the actress’ mother Elena suffering a breakdown when Helena was five, and her father Raymond left paralysed and partially-blind after surgery for a brain tumour seven years later, the Alice in Wonderland star insists she had a perfect childhood and hopes to be as good a parent as her own.
She said: “I had a very, very happy upbringing. I hope I can be half as good a parent to my children as they have been to me. And I know Tim is a great father.”
Helena recently visited The Museum of Jewish Heritage in New York and the recently-opened 9/11 Memorial Museum as part of a two-day trip organised by David Cameron for the Holocaust Commission. I have added 18 MQ pictures to the gallery – apologies for delay!
Helena Bonham Carter is at the opening of Universal Orlando’s The Wizarding World of Harry Potter — Diagon Alley to talk MTV about being bad. But for her upcoming role as The Fairy Godmother in Disney’s live-action re-imagining of Cinderella, she’s channeling something completely different than the Harry Potter movie’s evil second-in-command, Bellatrix Lestrange.
“Yeah, she’s good!” Carter said, laughing, as she told MTV News about the Cinderella role. “She has a wand, she has teeth, but they’re perfect.”
Carter is well known for her out there — and in recent years, evil — characters like Lestrange, which she played over four Harry Potter movies, as well for scenes filmed for the new ride Harry Potter and the Escape From Gringotts, which opens on July 8. But when she graces screens in 2015, it’s for a part about as far from Lestrange as you can get.
Still, according to Carter, being pure good doesn’t mean there aren’t challenges.
“It’s an icon, it’s a tricky one because a fairy godmother, everyone has an idea of a fairy godmother,” Carter continued, as she sat right outside a replica of the Harry Potter films’ evil Knockturn Alley. “And also it’s kind of difficult to believe yourself as a fairy godmother, because it’s like a myth. You try and reinvent it, try to really believe having the thought of turning a pumpkin [into a carriage].” …Read More
E! News presenter Kristin Dos Santos recently caught up with Helena at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter and received a little tour around Harry Potter‘s wizarding bank, Gringotts. Helena touches upon some of her favourite moments in the films, her children’s opinions on the films and whether she’s open to appearing in the upcoming prequel films.
Goodness, there are an awful lot of pictures of Helena at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter event! I have been collecting pictures from various social media sites and adding them to the gallery – there are far too many people to credit individually, but under each image you can find the original poster. I have added 58 pictures so far, and still have lots more to add!
As per usual, if any of the photos are yours and you would like them removed or amended, please contact us and we’ll happily comply!
