Helena Bonham Carter – Money is not Everything for Aristocrats

Thursday, 06 January 2011

Helena Bonham Carter We know there is a special stratum of actors in this world and we know the part of the high society with the evidenced genealogy to be aristocrats throughout centuries, really nobles not those who acquired titles of nobility in various «societies». As for actors who come from real aristocratic families with old history, there are some of them who we are aware of. Helena Bonham Carter is the actress who is in the group of this exceptional people who can boast with the noble blood. Her great grandfather, Lord Asquith, was titled the Prime-Minister for Great Britain who headed the government of His Majesty within 1908 and 1916, and her grandmother was the Baroness Bonham Carter.

Helena is one of the eccentric actresses ever met in this sphere. She was born on May 26, 1966 to the family of a banker Raymond Bonham Carter, in London. And this is rather startling why a woman from high society with the excellent genealogy opts for the profession of an actress. The folks found her liking for acting a brief passion and they were quite indulgent to even such questionable occupation she chose. As a legitimate lady, she was educated in the elite prestigious Westminster School, and then at the department of the Theater of Drama at the Cambridge University. Since half of the 80s she was employed to feature noble ladies of the Victorian epoch in almost all movies she was invited, like Maurice, Lady Jane, Howards End and many others. Moreover, from the end of 80s she featured in screen Shakespeare works as Hamlet, Twelfth Night, or What You Will. Moreover, she had a tender affair with one of the reputed Shakespeare specialists, actor and the director Kenneth Charles Branagh.

Helena was displeased with her achievements as an actress and she did not enjoy the reputation of the actress who can only feature noble ladies only thanks to her looks. As any high-flying creative person, she longed to prove that she was a genuine actress but not a woman who corresponded to the particular performances of particular genre. First of all, she protested personally when in 1997 Bonham Carter was nominated for Oscar Award for her role in drama The Wings of the dove. She appeared at the ceremony wearing an old dress of her grandmother baroness which looked quite provocative against designer attires other celebrities wore. Helena was acknowledged in America after she starred in Fight Club, the sensational blockbuster from 1999. The movie was the breakthrough of the year, with the excellent box-office receipts, nominated for Oscar several times, though unsuccessfully, and introduced Helena Carter to the world.

That period was the breakthrough in her personal life, either. In 2000 when shooting the fantasy movie Planet of the Apes she got to know with the legendary director, a reputed story teller of the modern cinematography, Timothy Burton. And since then she has been the true helpmeet and partner in life, though unofficial, and a muse to create. Tim shoots her in lots of his projects in the startling image of a woman-freak. Helen and Tim have two kids, a boy and a girl, in their unofficial marriage, though they live separately in the neighborhood with houses connected with underground passage.

Helena’s position to money, fees and income has always been too noble. People born and brought-up in wealth, treat the financial aspect of their life at ease. They have everything to make sure that money provides and ensures lots but not everything. And this is the life position Helena takes today – she was provided with everything from the early childhood, she lived with her parents till she was thirty and she did not rush to shock the population with the scale and flippancy of financial spendthrifts. She invested the funds she earned personally to promote her acting career and her first twenty five pounds earned as the award at the poetic contest of readers, she spent for the professional portfolio for acting agencies for future. When she achieved success in this sphere, she never got anxious with financial matters giving the complete control over the money to her civil husband and father to her two kids, Tim Burton. She was never caught buying something crazy for an incredible amount of money, and yet, Burton acts the same. So, in 2007 Tim presented Helena several pairs of boots for motorcycling to the birth of their daughter, neglecting a ring bought at a fabulous price or an island in the Caribbean Sea. Helena Bonham Carter once came to the idea to launch her own line of trendy wear several years ago. Though, that was not the line for upper wear but the lingerie. The Pantaloonies brand managed by her is specialized in exclusive lingerie a-la retro, and presents women’s panties ladies from high society used to wear some time back. This is the way her high blood was revealed and this is not surprising, though it seems to be too peculiar.
