Actress and BAFTA winner, Helena Bonham Carter, met her husband Tim Burton when she starred in his film Planet of the Apes in 2001. But according to Bonham-Carter, she may not be working with him again!
The 47-year-old actress joked, “He’s getting sick of me,” at the Hamptons International Film Festival in New York state. Bonham Carter has made 6 other films with Burton, including Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Big Fish. The couple live in two adjoining, interconnected houses in Belsize Park, with their 10-year-old son, Billy, and daughter, Nell, aged five. Whether or not this is true, remains to be seen – but the gothic pair certainly make great films together!
It made me think of all the other famous couples who got together, either when they worked together on a movie, or shortly after the film came out! Check out the slideshow below…
The question is, which romances endured, and which ones fizzled out the moment the director yelled, “That’s a wrap!”
