Actress Helen Bonham-Carter insists she would have “divorced” boyfriend Tim Burton if he hadn’t cast her in his latest movie.
The Sixty Sixty star battled against 40 other actresses to land a part in the Burton-directed film Sweeney Todd which also stars Sacha Baron Cohen, but admits merging her work and personal life has taken its toll.
“I auditioned for my role – although I’d have divorced Tim if I hadn’t got it. In fact, we’re not even married, but I’d have still divorced him,” she said. “We had no talk of it at home, because until he’d seen every other actress, Tim wouldn’t say anything. And then when I knew I had the part, I thought, ‘Oh my God we’ve got to work together’, which is also stressful. It’s complicated leaving your personal life at home when you’ve got to work.”
