There are few individuals in Hollywood who can compare to Helena Bonham Carter. Love her or hate her, there’s no denying that she’s carved out a unique niche all of her own. Whether it’s starring in now-ex hubby Tim Burton’s dark and quirky films like Corpse Bride, Sleepy Hollow, and Sweeney Todd or flexing her muscles in more traditional dramas such as The King’s SpeechSuffragette, and Great Expectations, Helena is always sure to dominate the screen.
In 2012 she was made a Commander of the Order of the British Empire for her service to drama.
