anonymous asked:

What in the world happened w/ Helena Bonham Carter and Tim Burton? Why did they break up? Wait, do even like Tim?

So someone asked me this not long ago and I did explain the whole story with the tabloids/rumours flying around about the pair of them. A lot of people online jumped on the band wagon saying Tim cheated, he had a mid-life crisis, Helena cheated, she got with someone a year before it was announced publicly that they were over. To be honest, no one actually 100% knows. I can give my opinion on it. My opinion is that no, I don’t think they cheated on each other (HBC actually denied the rumours that Tim cheated were true) but I do think Tim is partially to blame whether he was having a mid-life crisis or not. That’s just how I feel. I feel like he hurt her, I mean you seen the Harper’s Bazaar interview right? That was pretty heartbreaking to read. 

A more detailed description to the fake/true story of what the tabloids said had happened is just here (x)

The only people who know the full story of what happened in that relationship is the two people that went through it. I think it should stay private, it’s been years now and they are both happy. If it’s meant to be it will be and if we ever get to know the ins and outs of what happened then so be it. It’s there decision. 

Also, I do like Tim darling. I have to admit I don’t like the way he treated HBC because well, she was devastated that they broke up but I like him. I liked them both individually, before they got together, when they got together (so so much) and even now that they are apart. He is a truly talented man. Just enjoy his films and let’s leave him and his feelings be. 

Hey, but Helena Bonham Carter is my queen. She does deserve to be happy and I hope she finds that happiness, whether it’s with Tim or without♡

“The other day, I was getting changed at the gym and this woman, a stranger, looked me up and down and said, ‘Do you have a broomstick at home?’ I thought, ‘Honestly, I’m just trying to do some exercise here.’ Another time I was doing yoga, and someone tweeted ‘Bonham Carter’s wearing bloomers to the yoga!’ I was going to tweet back saying they’re not bloomers, but then I realised that actually they were. Hahahahaha!”

“I always wanted to be a character actor, even when I was stuck inside a corset playing innocent girls. I always thought that they were so passive, which I now see as unfair. They weren’t passive; they were these amazing, dynamic women from the novels. But I’m afraid that’s how I saw it.”

Happy 49th birthday to the remarkable Helena Bonham Carter (May 26th,1966)

I think everything in life is art. What you do. How you dress. The way you love someone, and how you talk. Your smile and your personality. What you believe in, and all your dreams. The way you drink your tea. How you decorate your home. Or party. Your grocery list. The food you make. How your writing looks. And the way you feel. Life is art.

Happy 50th Birthday, HBC! (May 26th, 1966)
