Helena Bonham Carter & Tim Burton's Relationship, 'Still Special'

By Jason Marshall


With so many divorces in the news just this past weekend, it's refreshing to see at least one former couple who are making things work post-marriage. 

Helena Bonham Carter opens up about her 13 years with director Tim Burton in the latest edition of Red Magazine and the Terminator: Salvation actress says things could not be better with her ex.

"I could write a thesis on what's happened and it is all-absorbing when a relationship breaks down, but I think we're coming through it," explains Carter. "I think we'll have something very precious still." 



The two, who were never married and separated in December, have two children together - Billy, 12, and Nell, 7.

"Our relationship was always somewhat special, and I think it'll always remain special. We did find each other," admits the Oscar nominee. "And really, the mark of a successful relationship shouldn't be whether you're there forever after. Sometimes you're not meant to be forever together. Sometimes you have to come to terms with the fact that that was it. But that was a gift, a massive gift."

"We gave each other children and a lot more else," she continues. "And we might be better, and still be able to give to each other, but not necessarily living together. Which we did by the way, because everyone seemed to think we didn't, but that was a load of myth."

Like we said, #refreshing.
