Helena Bonham Carter Vanity Fair (Spain) - July 2013
Edit - Translation by the lovely my-darling-dr-hoffman
Look at her. Helena Bonham Carter seems to have found the balance between her two lives. The first one turned her into one of the corset queens during the late 80s, when she showed the romantic and melancholic side like no one else has in Lady Jane or Howards End. Her boyfriend back then,actor and director Kenneth Branagh seemed to have fitted into the heroes that went after her. The second one began when the shy girl turned into a goth, Tim Burton entered her life and she entered in Burton’s universe.
"Your father fell in love with me while I was wearing an ape suit", said Helena to her son Billy Ray to explain him how she and Burton met during the filming of Planet of the apes in 2001. Since then, the actress has starred in many movies of the director and has taken her crazy character looks into real life. Still, she has received great reviews and awards (From the bafta to the CBE)
This explosive mixture of talent and personality was the one that seduced Director Gore Verbinski into giving her the role of Red Harrington,the peculiar madame in the wild west brothel in the lone ranger. “Red has a shotgun as a leg and I’ve never had a leg as good as that one, it’s beautiful” jokes Bonham Carter. Next to Tonto, she’ll help the lone ranger catch a band of delinquents.
