Subscribe to Helena Bonham Carter

Helena Bonham Carter received her Cbe from the Queen today (February 22, 2012). The King's Speech actress was awarded the honour for her services to drama and according to the Daily Mail, described the day as "very, very special." Helena wore a tartan Vivienne Westwood outfit for the occasion, topped off with a miniature top hat. She attended the ceremony with her husband, the director Tim Burton.
Helena Bonham Carter made her name as an actress initially by starring in a number of Merchant Ivory films and became known as something of an 'English Rose.' In later years, she has starred in a number of her husband's films, often alongside another of Burton's favourite actors, Johnny Depp, such as Alice in Wonderland, Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street and Big Fish. Bonham-Carter has twice been nominated for an Oscar in her career, once last year for her role in The King's Speech and in in 1998 for her role in The Wings of a Dove. When it was announced that she would receive the Cbe, the actress commented "I am wondering does it mean I get to command, because at the moment it's my four-year-old daughter who does the commanding in our household. Must inform her of the change in situation."
This year, Helena Bonham Carter is scheduled to appear in Dark Shadows. Due for release in May 2012, the film is directed by her husband Tim Burton and will see her sharing screen time once more with Johnny Depp, as well as Michelle Pfeiffer and EVA GREEN.
