Helena’s FishLove portrait has finally been released – looks like they tired of us Helena fans pestering them because Helena’s is the only one to be released from the John Swannell collection so far ha ha. Helena poses with a Big Eye Tuna fish. Edit: well, you know what they say about buses! We now have three portraits of Helena! There’s also a great interview with the Evening Standard. An interesting piece of trivia for you – the ‘tattoo’ Helena is seen sporting was drawn on by Tim Burton.
I’m actually very phobic about fish so when Greta asked me to be photographed naked with a 27kg tuna I was more worried about touching it than getting my kit off. Having said that, I conquered my fears and by the end of the morning we’d truly bonded. He will be my Valentine. Source
Note: tweets would suggest that the delay in releasing the portraits was a publicity issues. But good things come to those who wait, and it was certainly worth the wait! If I am not mistaken, three portraits of one celebrity is the most to be released as part of the campaign.
Here’s a little bit of home movie from when we invited Helena Bonham Carter backstage to muck around with the Snowshow clowns. We’re trying to get her to join the troupe – a natural fit! – Blue Canary Films
I have managed to replace the odd photo from a selection of old shoots with HQ versions. Check them out!
Helena returned to her old school, South Hampstead High School, to officially open their new building.
Yesterday, Helena and her mother, Elena attended a service to mark 70 years since the liberation of Auschwitz, and to honour all those who were killed in the Holocaust. The Holocaust Memorial Day service was held at the Methodist Central Hall in Westminster.
Sorry I haven’t posted much lately, I’ve been very busy with university work. I have uploaded 7 HQ portraits taken by David Sandison for The Independent in 1999.
With 2014 drawing to an end, it is time to take a look back at the year! While it was a busy year for Helena in terms of filming, it was fairly quiet for us fans – not much in the way of news!
Favourite Photoshoot of 2014
Well, there were only three photoshoots/portrait sessions to choose from this year! The gorgeous portrait by Mario Testino for Vanity Fair magazine definitely wins this year. Helena looked gorgeous wearing Rosie Red Corsetry and Couture. My only wish would be that we could have seen more from this lovely shoot.
With great sadness, I must report that Helena and Tim have confirmed that they split up earlier this year:
“Tim Burton and Helena Bonham Carter separated amicably earlier this year and have continued to be friends and co-parent their children,” Burton’s rep tells E! News in a joint statement. “We would ask that you respect their privacy and that of their children during this time.”
Edit: Neither Helena nor Tim have specified a reason for their separation. Sites claiming to have ‘sources’ who provide speculation about the couple’s relationship and personal lives are deliberately spreading rumours and false information in order to create more drama. These rumours are unfounded and highly likely to be false.
