Helena recently sat down for a question and answer session with her PA, Donna Coulling. They chatted about Helena’s upcoming film The Young and Prodigious T.S. Spivet, read the interview below!
How and why did you become involved in this project?
Because I loved it and Jean-Pierre has always been my dream director. And frankly if he’d asked me to do a commercial for furniture polish I’d have done it. Plus he emailed and asked me, and I love him.
How much input do you prefer to have over the portrayal of a character? Is this harder to do with a character already established in a book?
No because if there is already a book there is a lot of information to draw on. If the character inspires you and the more coloured and nuanced they are the more details and ideas it gives you. …Read More
Yesterday Helena attended a private charity screening for The Young and Prodigious T.S. Spivet, which is out today in a limited number of cinemas in the UK. I have added 13 MQ pictures to the gallery but hope to have HQ versions soon.
Helena Bonham Carter talks to the Guardian about ‘witty’ David Cameron, ‘weirdo’ Lars von Trier and why Tim Burton won’t watch a rom-com. The actress talks about her friendship with the prime minister, why she turned down the Danish director and her false teeth hoard.
On a warm summer’s day Helena Bonham Carter is between jobs and between homes, supervising a move between the pair of London houses that she shares with Tim Burton. She is surrounded by photos and books, together with bizarre sets of false teeth from the roles she has played. “It’s like an archeological dig into my own past,” she explains. “I should sell tickets and open up a museum.” The souvenirs keep spinning before her eyes, like the animated props in a Harry Potter movie.
If you’re looking for an index of 30 years of high-toned British cinema, the Bonham Carter back catalogue provides as good a map as any. The route winds through her 80s breakthrough as the muse for Merchant Ivory, through Hamlet and Frankenstein, to The King’s Speech and Les Misérables. In the early years she played limpid and lovely, tottering about in bonnets and being ravished in poppy fields, although I confess that I like her better in her wilder recent incarnations. She’s perversely beautiful as raging Bellatrix LeStrange, the stentorian Red Queen, or ghoulish Mrs. Lovett, who bakes the bodies into pies in Sweeney Todd. On screen, at least, she has travelled a great deal further than the house next door. …Read More
Rufus Wainwright posted this picture of himself and Helena this evening – not entirely sure what ‘event’ they are attending, but Helena looks lovely in her Vivienne Westwood dress, Annina Vogel necklace and fascinator.
