Muses

Helena Bonham Carter & Tim Burton

The British actress stars in Tim Burton's Planet of the Apes, in 2001 and begins a fruitful professional and personal relationship with the director: she becomes his muse and seems the ideal performer of his fantasy, gothic-like creations such as Big Fish, in 2003, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, in 2005 and Sweeney Todd, in 2007. Ideal as the antiquated leading lady or the eccentric bizarre character of her husband’s absurd environment, Helena Bonham Carter diffuses a somewhat out of time extravagant aura with her Edwardian beauty and curious outfits that resonate with the lifestyle they both lead. Thus despite having had two children, Helena Bonham Carter and Tim Burton live in London, in separate houses joined by a door - officially because of the director’s snoring and insomnies but maybe more because such outstanding eccentrics need their very own space.
