Washington, Dec 5 (ANI): Filmmaker Tim Burton likes to celebrate Christmas in an unusual way - by decorating the Christmas tree with fake dead babies and slime balls, reveals his partner/actress Helena Bonham Carter.
Carter, in an interview with Playboy magazine, admitted that Christmas in their home is a macabre experience.
“He decorates it with dead babies and slime balls and things. It looks lovely and glittery from afar, and then as you get closer, you realize it’s rather gory,” People quoted Carter, as saying.
The actress, who is pregnant with the couple’s second child, also revealed what she likes about the moviemaker.
“We’re not that dark. What I love about Tim is that he retains certain innocence and a childlike quality. He sort of forgot to grow up. I think I’ve definitely forgotten to grow up, which is great,” she said.
“At some point, [Billy] will probably want parents. He’ll have to look elsewhere,” she added. (ANI)
