Washington, Jan 8 (ANI): Filmmaker Tim Burton was so desperate to help his wife Helena Bonham Carter get out of the image of a period actress that he made her do bizarre film roles.

However, Burton now insists that the 41-year-old’s acting remit has changed drastically.

“Yes, I do put Helena in some strange roles considering she’s my partner and the mother of my children, Contactmusic quoted him, as saying.

I started off putting her in a monkey suit (in Planet Of The Apes). In Sweeney Todd, her character ends up thrown into an oven. And in The Corpse Bride, I had her as a decomposing corpse with maggots in her head.

“That’s a problem you’re going to have if you’re around me. ‘Forget those period costumes in Florence or those Elizabethan wardrobes,’ I told her, ‘It’s not going to be like that anymore, he added. (ANI)
