Helena Bonham Carter's Quotes

  • I hate this image of me as a prim Edwardian. I want to shock everyone.
  • I should get a few ribs taken out, because I'll be in a corset for the rest of my life.
  • [on breast-feeding her baby]: People say, "You're still breast-feeding, that's so generous". Generous, no! It gives me boobs and it takes my thighs away! It's sort of like natural liposuction. I'd carry on breast-feeding for the rest of my life if I could.
  • He's very cool. Whatever Johnny does, there's something cool about it. He's very hip. It's emotional and vulnerable, too, which makes it touching. [on her friend and colleague Johnny Depp]
  • I'm drawn to emotionally damaged characters because there is more to unlock.

Discovering Helena Bonham Carter: Biography of One of the UK’s Biggest Movie Star

If you’ve ever watched Tim Burton’s 2005 adaptation of Roald Dahl’s classic novel β€˜Charlie and the Chocolate Factory,’ it’s easy to remember the eccentric Miss Havisham of β€˜Great Expectations’ or the hair-raising Bellatrix Lestrange of the β€˜Harry Potter’ franchise. These characters come to vivid life thanks to an incredibly talented performer: Helena Bonham Carter.

Early Life and Education

Bonham Carter was born in London on May 26, 1966, in Islington. Growing up, she lived with her parents Elena and Raymond Bonham Carter, a brilliant couple from very distinguished backgrounds.

However, tragedy strickened early in her family with both her mother and father falling ill. Her mother suffered a nervous breakdown when Helena was just five years old, taking around three years to recover. Five years later, her father had a stroke and was left half-paralyzed, needing a wheelchair to move.

Through all of these experiences, Bonham Carter kept moving ahead with her education. She attended South Hampstead High School, Westminster School, and then decided to pursue further studies at the University of Cambridge at age 18.


Much like any struggling artist, Bonham Carter used various creative methods to find work, including entering her photo into a casting database called β€˜Spotlight’ and winning a writing competition at age thirteen which helped fund her acting auditions expenses. She landed her first role in 1983 when she appeared in the television movie β€˜A Pattern of Roses.’

Bonham Carter’s big break came when she starred in the movie β€˜A Room with A View (1985).’ Critically acclaimed, the film undoubtedly helped her establish herself as a force in the film industry. Bonham Carter’s incredible ability to immerse herself in characters and convey their emotions has resulted in dozens of other iconic roles throughout her career, including β€˜Ophelia’ in 199’s β€˜Hamlet,’ for which she was nominated for a Golden Globe, and β€˜Lady Jane Grey’ in the 1986 film β€˜Lady Jane.’

As noted earlier, Helena Bonham Carter is hugely recognized for her work beside the master of horror dark comedy, Tim Burton. When the two started working together, grossed an average of almost $800 Million every movie. These movies included β€œCharlie and the Chocolate Factory,” β€œCorpse Bride,” β€œSweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street,” and β€œAlice in Wonderland.” Helena strolled into Hollywood in fine form; over the course of her career, she has appeared in more than a hundred movies and television shows, constantly exploring her range.


People had high expectations when β€œThe King’s Speech” movie was released in 201, expecting an Academy Award-winning enterprise. They were not disappointed. Bonham Carter portrayed Queen Elizabeth, the wife of King George VI, and amassed critical adulation and nominations. She was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress and won a Screen Actors Guild and Critic’s Choice Award.

Helena Bonham Carter is also an award-winning versatile actress, having earned multiple BAFTA and Golden Globes nominations for her incredible craft and renowned flexibility for switching between terrifyingly evil and empathetically heartwarming characters. In 2012 Helena was appointed a Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (CBE). She was honored at Buckingham Palace for her services to drama by the queen.

Personal Life

Drifting away from movies to a bit more personal life, Helena has had two high profile and popular relationships. Firstly, with β€˜Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein’ director Kenneth Branagh, who she worked with in 1994 – who was married to actress Emma Thompson at the time. The pair went public with their romance several months before Branagh’s affair with Bonham Carter became public knowledge, and Thompson and Branagh ultimately divorced in 1995. The affair ended four years later when Helena met director Tim Burton when they crossed paths while filming the movie β€œPlanet of the Apes.”

Helena and Tim were together from 2001 until they split in December 2014 amicably and have two children together, Billy Ray and Nell Burton. Although being asked to move on in interviews, Bonham Carter and her ex-partner Burton have worked in films ever since the end of their relationship, especially since that is where they became friends and started their relationship. In fact, both Helena and Burton juggled their professional and personal lives during their relationship as they figured out when one persona opens and the other needs time off.

Net Worth Details

Bonham Carter has become a respected figure in Hollywood, having made a fortune worth over $60 million. While she has definitely played her part in a few box office hits in her career, it was not only from Hollywood screens that she made bank.

Also, considered an entrepreneur, Helena uses up her earnings for investments over hotel chains with six-figure deals. In fact, she stepped into the fashion world herself with cashmere yarn collaborations that she developed, although the books do not document the same. Regardless, her investments continue to grow alongside her substantial net worth despite the overall ups and downs of a celebrity-driven business.

In a Nutshell

Helena Bonham Carter is an incredible artist and an all-around brilliant performer. By devoting herself to trade, having unique choices of creativity, delivering something special in every role, whether as mainstream in Harry Potter or legendary characters such as Miss Havisham.

With no near pronouncements of retirement from acting, it is pretty safe to say that the world will expect an auteur’s next combination of quirky cinema gold and Bonham Carter’s acting magic.
