HELENA BONHAM CARTER KNOWS HOW TO HAVE FUN ON A RED CARPET

You can always count on Helena Bonham Carter to liven up a stuffy red carpet event. We met her on the red carpet at the Oscars back in the 90’s and immediately loved her – she was wearing an outrageous Vivienne Westwood dress and stuck out like a sore thumb among the couture gowns. Versatile Helena is most famous for playing turn of the century women in corsets, but did you know she also appeared on Miami Vice as Don Johnson’s girlfriend? Helena, 51, wore black to the BAFTA awards for the #Me Too movement (Looks like Westwood) but she couldn’t resist that sassy handbag. Watch for her next in the female version of Oceans Eleven, and Netflix’s The Crown.

CAN YOU IMAGINE HELENA BONHAM CARTER WITH DON JOHNSON?

It’s always fun to see Helena Bonham Carter out shopping in New York with her mother because they are obviously so much alike. Both her parents (her father is deceased) are from prominent UK families. Elena Propper de Callejon is a psychotherapist and Helena has her mom read her scripts and they discuss characters and motives. Certainly a LOT of Helena’s off-beat style runs in the family, although she credits Marie Antoinette and Vivienne Westwood as her fashion influences. Believe it or not, the versatile Helena once played Don Johnson’s love interest in episodes of Miami Vice!

CATE BLANCHETT: LEADER OF THE OCEANS 8 RAT PACK?

We never paid much attention to George Clooney’s Oceans Eleven series of movies – just the same old stuff – self-indulgent and unoriginal. Now the same people are filming Oceans 8 with an all-female cast and we’re puzzled. It’s kinda sad that women have to remake roles written for men because there are so few original parts for women. Of course it’s better than NOTHING – but don’t blame the women if the worn-out casino heist concept seems tired. The cast is stellar- Cate Blanchett, Sandra Bullock, Sarah Paulson, Anne Hathaway, Rihanna, Helena Bonham Carter, Mindy Kaling, and Asian American rapper Awkwafina (Nora Lum.) That’s a powerful and varied group. Hopefully, the script was written by women. Cate Blanchett started filming scenes in New York and she looks formidable in her green velvet suit. The movie isn’t coming out until 2018, however.

ANNE HATHAWAY ALMOST HAD A NICE MOMENT THERE…

As you may know, Anne Hathaway recently posted this rather charming and innocent looking photo of Helena Bonham Carter captioned “IN A WORLD OF KARDASHIANS, Be a Helena Bonham Carter “ Helena is her usual slightly eccentric tousled self in the pic. It’s a nice and inoffensive message to young girls that EVERYONE doesn’t have to be overtly sexy and heavily made up like the you-know-whos. Looking off-beat or nerdy is just fine. Believe it or not, Anne was criticized by internet trolls (Kardashian fans?) who claimed to be OFFENDED by the post and unfortunately she caved, and took it down and apologized. How could ANYONE be turned off by this message? Anne is trying too hard to be politically correct…

HELENA BONHAM CARTER AND TIM BURTON: NO SEPARATION ANXIETY HERE

Tim Burton and Helena Bonham Carter go for a stroll with their daughter Nell Burton

We never get tired of looking at Harry Potter actress Helena Bonham Carter because she is a true English eccentric. Even on an ordinary walk with her daughter Nell and Nell’s father – director Tim Burton – Helena doesn’t look like everyone else. We can only IMAGINE what’s under that unique coat that she paired up with orthopedic looking shoes. It’s interesting that Tim, 57, and Helena, 49, split up in 2014, but since then they seem to get along better than ever. Helena is currently filming “Five Seconds of Silence” with Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard.

HELENA BONHAM CARTER THIRTY YEARS LATER

AG082554_06helena

Ya gotta love Helena Bonham Carter, 49, and her idiosyncratic sense of fashion. The British Museum held a special 30th anniversary screening of the movie that made Helena famous, “A Room with a View.” She was photographed in her own clothes holding the original parasol used in the movie. Helena’s own Vivienne Westwood inspired bustle skirt and jacket seemed right at home with the parasol, but her clunky shoes were a jarring reminder of modern times.

TIM BURTON AND HELENA BONHAM CARTER- THE SMOOTHEST SPLIT EVER

91530PCN_Academy21cut

It’s kind of sad to hear that Tim Burton, 56, and Helena Bonham-Carter, 48, are no longer a couple, but it’s an INCREDIBLY easy break-up for them. They never MARRIED, and Tim doesn’t have to pack up and move out because he never lived with Helena and their two kids, Billy, 11, and Nell, 7. Tim lived in the house next door, which was connected, but they both slept in their own houses. (Now THERE’S a man who doesn’t want to COMMIT.) Nobody really knows exactly WHEN they split because they continue to go on family outings with the kids. The only hint arose when Tim was photographed kissing a blonde woman last year, and Helena mentioned that she might never do another movie with Tim. Too bad – they seem like such a good eccentric match.

HELENA BONHAM CARTER’S KIDS CAN ACTUALLY SEE HER NEXT MOVIE

129407PCN_HydePark3cut

Filmmaker Tim Burton is as eccentric as they come, but he and his equally idiosyncratic wife Helena Bonham Carter do lots of normal family things with their kids Billy and Nell. Helena is starring as the Fairy Godmother in Disney’s live-action version of Cinderella coming out next year. Click HERE to watch the video. Last night the family went to the opening of the Hyde Park Winter Wonderland which is open throughout the holidays for six weeks. It features lots of rides, Santa Land, a Magical Ice Kingdom, ice skating, and all kinds of entertainment.

HELENA BONHAM CARTER AND TIM BURTON: TWO OF A KIND

AG034518_01helcut

Still together after 13 years and happily unmarried, Helena Bonham Carter, 48, and Tim Burton, 55, took their kids for a walk in London. If Billy, 10 , and Nell, 7, are lucky they will inherit their mother’s looks and their father’s imagination. Actually both of their parents are creative and eccentric. Note that Helena is wearing two pairs of glasses on her head. Tim Burton is finishing up his movie called Big Eyes – it’s about that 50’s painter Margaret Keane who painted those children with huge eyes. At one time the paintings were easy to find in thrift shops – now they’re collectable.

HELENA BONHAM CARTER WILL PLAY A BOOZY ELIZABETH TAYLOR TWENTY YEARS LATER

The delightfully eccentric Helena Bonham Carter (featured above with her mother at a flower show) is probably the LAST person you’d imagine playing movie queen Elizabeth Taylor in a film. But Helena is an accomplished actress – and happens to be blessed with a beautiful face, so she was cast to play Liz in the BBC production of “Burton and Taylor.” The script details the movie couple (Richard Burton and Elizabeth) in 1983 when they were costarring in the play “Private Lives” and probably drinking up a storm. English actor Dominic West plays Richard Burton, and it will be fun to compare this portrayal of Liz to Lindsay Lohan’s “Liz & Dick” Lifetime movie because it takes place 20 years later.
