Helena Bonham Carter still auditions for beauJanuary 9th, 2008 - 4:30 pm ICT by admin
Washington, Jan 9 (ANI): English actress Helena Bonham Carter may be romantically involved with director Tim Burton but that doesnt mean she is automatically considered for the roles in his movies.
In fact, she still has to audition for a part in one of his films.
The 41-year-old star has been going around with Burton for six years and the couple has two children together.
However the actress insists that just because she is his girlfriend, it does not necessarily mean that she would be handed a role in any of Burtons movies without trying for it, and that she has to work just as hard to get the role.
Carter had recently landed the coveted role of Nellie Lovett opposite Johnny Depp in Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street and she is convinced she won the job fairly.
“I did sleep with him (Burton) obviously. It wasn’t gaining me any favours, Contactmusic quoted her as saying.
“It looked like giving me the role was the easy choice. It was actually really hard and probably risky too because, for one, I definitely had to audition. I’d never want to be cast just because I was his girlfriend, she said.
“I also didn’t want to have the pressure of being cast and not being qualified to do it - that would’ve been a disaster for the movie and for him,” she added. (ANI)
