The Heart and the Bottle

Posted by: Filed under: Helena News Leave a Comment (0)

With the news that Apple has app-arrently sold over 10 billion apps, The Sun has checked out the greatest children’s books on offer at the touch of a button.

These apps have all the charm of the real thing but have animation, “read-to-me” features and even let your tots play interactive games. That’s if you let their grubby mitts all over your smartphone.

1. The Heart and the Bottle
The characters and scenes are brought to life through detailed animations, so young readers can follow the story while discovering surprises in the illustrations. Users can grow flowers with a touch of a fingertip or add a flurry of snow to a scene by shaking the device. Narrated by actress Helena Bonham Carter.

‘Childcare guru helped me handle Tim’

Posted by: Filed under: Helena News Leave a Comment (0)

She is the woman who taught Helena Bonham Carter to “parent” her partner. Childcare guru Noël Janis-Norton, 66, was employed by the actress to improve relations with her children, after the star found family life was “much harder than acting”.

But the Oscar nominee says the “Calmer, Easier, Happier Parenting” plan worked just as well on her film director partner Tim Burton.

Bonham Carter, 44, said her life has been transformed after she, Burton and their children’s nanny attended a seven-week course and private sessions with Ms Janis-Norton – while Burton is “a changed man”.

Son Billy Ray, seven, and two-year-old daughter Nell are also enjoying the change, according to their mother. “Tim used to say ‘Where’s such and such?’ and I would scurry around looking for it,” she said. “Now, I make him do it – and the same with the kiddies. It just stops you running around doing every single thing for them.”

Bonham Carter, nominated for a best supporting actress Oscar for her role as the future Queen Mother in The King’s Speech, said the course “has changed my life.

“I think because it has taken the stress out of parenting, or some of it at least, I’ll probably live 10 years longer. It makes people think for themselves instead of me, the mother, doing everything for them.”

Ms Janis-Norton said: “Helena came by herself to group class and I’ve had private sessions with her and Tim and the nanny. So it’s a united front they’re surrounding their children with. She’s extremely easy to work with because she’s very open and has a great sense of humour. It’s lovely, but the fact that she’s famous is not what makes it lovely. It’s so heart-warming to know that we’re contributing, making the world a better place.”

“She’s absolutely delightful to work with, very open, lots of fun and her children are very sweet.”

Tom Hooper’s Filming Experience

Posted by: Filed under: Helena News, The King's Speech Leave a Comment (0)

The King’s Speech director recently did an interview with The Telegraph newspaper and had all of this to say about filming Helena:

Some of my most special shooting experiences have been at weekends. Take the first time I shot with Helena Bonham Carter on The King’s Speech. That was a Sunday. We were shooting in Portland Place, a five-minute drive from my home near Regent’s Park. I got up at 5.30am and was on set 20 minutes later, which was positively luxurious considering I usually end up in the car for more than an hour to get to location.

It was the first scene in the film; the one where Helena, playing the late Queen Elizabeth – or the Duchess of York as she was then – visits speech therapist Lionel Logue (played by Geoffrey Rush), at his surgery on Harley Street. She wants to ask if he can rid her husband, Bertie (later King George VI) of his terrible stutter.

After all the research we’d done, it was amazing to see Helena’s interpretation. She had some extraordinary ability to make me feel that she actually was the Queen Mother, which is quite illogical as she doesn’t look that much like her. But she had this idea that the Queen Mother was like a “marshmallow, but a marshmallow made with a welding machine”, and she captured that mixture of sweetness and toughness brilliantly.

We shot most of The King’s Speech in London at weekends because Helena was shooting Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 during the week. But there was something particularly satisfying about that first Sunday, because it so nearly didn’t happen. After we’d scheduled our whole shoot to work Saturdays and Sundays, Harry Potter came back and said that if it rained during the week, they’d still need Helena at weekends. I went to my producers and asked if we should risk going with Helena when there was a good chance we would lose her. It was a really small-budget film and we would be taking a very expensive bet against the English weather in late November.

Amazingly my producers backed me and we were lucky; it didn’t rain on Harry Potter and we got Helena on that Sunday. I’ll never forget the sense of relief and the incredible joy I felt that I was filming with her. You see, despite my persistence, she’d never actually said yes to the part – I’d just made it impossible for her to say no. Finally, at the British Independent Film Awards in London in November, when she was accepting the best supporting actress award, she said: “Tom, I do owe you a formal ‘yes’.”

New York Times Interview

Posted by: Filed under: Helena News, The King's Speech Leave a Comment (0)

Helena Bonham Carter, nominated for her role in The King’s Speech as the pitch-perfect would-be Queen of England to the stuttering would-be King, was in London with her two young children watching the nominations on television. “I have a cold,” she said. “An Oscar nomination makes you feel a lot better.”

Ms. Bonham Carter, who described herself as “happy” and “excited” about the nod from the Academy, also said she was aware that the alchemy of the awards is complicated. “I’ve been in the business a long time, long enough to know that a lot of things have to work in the right way at the right time,” she said.

Playing the loving but tough Elizabeth was a wonderful challenge because “she was really complex,” Ms. Bonham Carter said. ‘I couldn’t play the whole of her. I had to play what suited the story. Where he was lacking confidence, she did have this public construct, this public image, and hid her real self inside. She was expert at being gracious. She had these two layers — inside there was steel.”

Colin Firth’s role, as the reluctant king with a stutter and a war on his hands, is pretty serious business, but Ms. Bonham Carter said she, Mr. Firth (King George VI) and Geoffrey Rush (the speech therapist Lionel Logue) took spoonfuls of mirth with their sober portrayals. “They’re funny people, Colin and Geoffrey,” Ms. Bonham Carter said. “They’re great raconteurs. They also took their parts seriously because there was so much depth, so much responsibility,” to playing real men.

The King’s Speech generated plenty of Oscar buzz from the beginning, but Ms. Bonham Carter said she resisted making the rounds to promote the film in order to spend more time with her children (with the director Tim Burton), who are 7 and 3 years old. “I’ve got a choice in life,” she said. “I can only do so much. We don’t want a Mommy Dearest situation.”

So although the children were clapping away with joy when they heard of her nomination, Ms. Bonham Carter joked that they did not realize it meant another trip (to the awards ceremony) in the very near future. Would the whole family attend? “I can’t take them away, unless they’re on holiday,” she said. “They’re not really that portable anymore. I take it one day at a time.”

‘I am very available for hire’

Posted by: Filed under: Helena News Leave a Comment (0)

Yes, Helena Bonham Carter was duly honored with a supporting Oscar nomination for role as Queen Elizabeth in The King’s Speech.

And, yes, it is her second time at bat after previously being recognized for her lead in 1997′s The Wings of the Dove.

But what we really want to tell her is how fab it was she wore that Jackson Pollack crashed into the Black Swan frock at the Golden Globes. Along with her mismatched shoes.

“Oh, I got your vote,” she told USA TODAY’s Susan Wloszczyna, speaking from her London home. Apparently not everyone was as impressed with her Vivienne Westwood ensemble. “Andrew Garfield walked by me on the red carpet and said, ‘Oh my God, you look ridiculous … I mean, ridiculously good.’ I told him, ‘Great. I don’t mind.’”

The actress, 44, was with her children — son Billy, 7, and daughter Nell, 3 — while watching the nomination announcement. “They saw my name come up and went, ‘Yay!’”

Does this nomination feel different than the one 13 years ago?
“As grateful as I am, it can be quite intimidating,” she said.

Back then, “I was a bit more obedient. I took the fashion thing much more seriously. It was more stressful. Now, I have a sense proportion as I’ve gotten older. It is more enjoyable. It is really helpful for a career, a menopausal nomination. I felt sick earlier today but I am much better now.”

What will she work on next?
“I’m not working on anything. I am very available for hire. What I really want is another good job. Maybe I will wear a dress that says ‘For Hire’ with my availability dates.”
