Helena Bonham Carter

May 26, 2007

Ugh.

I don’t really like Helena Bonham Carter. I think most of that is derived from her connection to Tim Burton and particularly his films, but even without that I’m not sure I like her. The combination of her face and voice kind of bug me. As a result, I have only seen three things with her.

Mom and Dad bought a pre-viewed tape once of a movie called Lady Jane about Henry VIII’s daughter Lady Jane Grey. It had Patrick Stewart and Cary Elwes in it, and I watched it precisely for their appearances in the film. It wasn’t horrible, but it wasn’t good either. I liked the Merlin mini-series that was shown on TV. She annoyed me in it though. She was equally annoying in Big Fish, and I really didn’t like that movie. I fully expected to not like it, but I watched it because of Ewan McGregor.

I do plan on seeing at least one more movie with her in it, but it pains me that she is in it. She is playing Bellatrix Lestrange in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. I think she will probably be OK, because I do think she is a fair actress. However, I think they should have cast someone taller and more beautiful, because that’s how she was described in the book. Either way, I have high expectations for the film. I just saw that Jean-Pierre Jeunet was asked to direct the film, but he turned it down. That would have been interesting.

Helena Bonham Carter is 41.

Other birthdays: Pam Grier, Philip Michael Thomas, Lenny Kravitz, Hank Williams, Jr., Stevie Nicks, and Brent Musburger.

    Wonder why Jeunet turned it down?

  2. May 26, 2007 11:06 am

    I’m not sure. I wonder if his experience with the Alien series had anything to do with it. Maybe he didn’t want to be constrained with established elements of the movies.

    I saw her in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory! I knew I’d seen her in something else. I liked Big Fish. I thought it was pretty good. She is a bit odd. Great fit for Tim Burton movies :)

  4. May 26, 2007 1:36 pm

    I just thought Big Fish was boring. Granted, I went in expecting to hate it, as I hate Tim Burton.

  5. May 26, 2007 6:16 pm

    He’s quite odd. Not bad if you’re in the mood for odd.

    I love weird people and movies. Therefore, watching Helena and Tim Burton films is great fun for me. But then again I am quite the crazy one. :D

  7. May 26, 2007 11:33 pm

    I have nothing against odd. I like odd. Tim Burton just tends to be predictably dark and quirky to the point that it becomes pretentious and annoying. I can never forgive him for Batman.

  8. May 27, 2007 5:33 am

    I must say that compared to the new batman, those old ones are stupid. The first ones were just dumb, and the ones in the middle were cartoonish. Granted, the kids really like the cartoon-like feel.

  9. May 27, 2007 9:02 am

    He only did the first and the second. The second one is the most pathetic of the group. But I blame him for setting the tone and low level of expectation.

    There are two Burton films I actually like. I like Pee Wee’s Big Adventure and Mars Attacks. Yet, I think most of that is due to me just liking Pee Wee and the cast in Mars Attacks.

    Well, I don’t much care for the Batman movies mainly cause I don’t really like Batman the character. I did like Batman Forever cause of the cast (Jim Carrey, Drew Barrymore, Tommy Lee Jones, and Val Kilmer). Other than that I really don’t care for comic book turned movie…movies. Same dealio with Spiderman and Fantastic Four junk. Granted I haven’t seen the FF. But, I have no desire to do so.

  11. May 27, 2007 1:34 pm

    Have you seen Batman Begins or the X-Men movies? They are all awesome, and particularly Batman Begins. What about the Batman character don’t you like? Is it just that he is a comic book character, or is it something more specific?

    Oh, and the Fantastic Four was ok. Nothing great, but not horrible.

    Ok Ok. I absolutely LOVE the X-Men movies. I love that some of the people had powers and the conflict to feel a since belonging and so on and so forth. I liked the Batman Begins. Although, even if money wasn’t a worry I still wouldn’t buy any of the Batman or Superman movies. I’ll watch them once (with the exception of Batman Forever which I’ll watch maybe twice a year) and then I’m good. I’m just not impressed enough with them to buy them or anything. Whereas I would buy all of X-Men stuff. I despised the Cat woman movie. Anywho, as for the Batman character…I don’t know. It doesn’t really makes since to me. With all the paparazzi around don’t you think that his little secret about being Batman would’ve gotten out since Bruce Wayne is a big shot? Famous people get stalked all the time. At some point wouldn’t his dirty little secret be revealed in real life? Somebody would’ve been able to identify his voice or something. Same deallio with Superman. I mean COME ON! Glasses no glasses. Seriously people. And with Superman…with his powers he could be doing so much more. He doesn’t seem to be using his powers wisely in my opinion.

  13. May 27, 2007 9:53 pm

    Superman is a wanker.
    As for Batman, you must remember that the comic was created in the 30s before paparazzi as we know it existed. Even in today’s world however, Bill Gates has privacy. Most of the people who are inundated by paparazzi are exposed because they want to be. They can protest all they want, but the simple solution to the problem is to withdraw from the spotlight.
    Bruce Wayne, although a millionaire playboy, could still retain a degree of privacy, and especially so at Wayne Manor. The nature of Bruce Wayne is such that no one would or could get close enough to spoil the secret beyond Alfred. That is my one gripe with Batman Begins. The girl would have to die.
    What makes Batman superior to virtually any other superhero is the fact that he is completely human. All of his abilities are those that can be found in the average person albeit at extraordinary levels. Still, his exploits remain feasible to some extent, and as such lend a connectivity that you just don’t get with other super heroes. It’s much harder to relate to Superman, because no one could possibly do what he can do. It isn’t nearly as hard to relate to Batman, because he is human and within reach.
    Well, theoretically anyway.

    Why do you hate tim burton and helena bonham carter?
    I can’t understand it.
    He is an AMAZING director and a genius and she is gorgeous and a great actress. How can you hate them. I love them both so mucb

  16. March 21, 2008 1:18 pm

    I hate them for a couple of reasons. One, I hate the movies they make with but rare exceptions. They are all “dark,” and “quirky,” and so on. Read = irritating.

    Tim Burton isn’t an amazing director. He is solid at best. To try and pass him off as one of the great directors of all time, or even of his era, is absurd.

    Likewise, HBC isn’t a great actress either. As I said in the initial post, I feel she is a fair actress, but not even close to the best.

    Essentially, I hate them because their die-hard fans try to pawn them off as the best thing since sliced bread. So, feel free to blame yourself for my hatred by claiming them to be “AMAZING” and “great” respectively. Come back to the discussion when you can be more objective.

    Grow up, learn to use the Caps Lock, watch some really talented actresses, and try consulting a dictionary. Barring that, do the world a favor and end yourself.

    I’ve said it before (the comments above your’s as a matter of fact), and I’ll say it again: much of my hatred for HBC, Burton, and Depp is derived from their mindless, juvenile, and irrational fans.

    In other words, keep your mouth shut you filthy, Canadian swine.

    You’re as hypocritical as you are moronic.

    Further more, I never intended HBC to read this post. It satisfies me that sycophantic imbeciles like yourself do. I feed off your idiocy, and it taste’s oh, so sweet.

    I’m not judging Helena based on her skin color, but her work. Comparing my judgment of her to racism is incomprehensibly stupid. Therefore, it doesn’t surprise me that you would do so.

    You determining that HBC has a “REALLY GREAT” life is as big a judgment call as I have made. You’re welcome to reach that conclusion as much as I am welcome to determine that HBC and Tim Burton fans are sycophantic and extremely annoying like yourself.

    You say that you don’t judge me, but then insult me. How am I doing anything different than what you are doing? You read my comments, think they are misguided, and insult me for them. I see HBC’s work (in limited form, just as you’ve seen my comments in limited form), didn’t like the work much and certainly hated her fan’s maddening devotion to what I perceive as no more than solid performances, and insulted her and especially her fans.

    I agree that Tim Burton is the luckiest man in the world. He continues to get paid vast sums of money for producing persistently annoying garbage. That said, more power to him for exploiting the mindless masses. If he were “here,” I would say what I have already said of him. I would also beg him to continue to tie up Johnny Depp, as I don’t want Depp ruining movies I would actually be otherwise willing to watch.

    HBC is your auntie now, huh? That’s fantastic. That would at least justify your devotion to her if true. I wouldn’t be nearly so annoyed by your cap lock heavy attempt at discussion if that were true. If that were true. In fact, if that were true, I invite you to have her “TRAK” my “DIRTY ASS DOWN,” so she could do something with that implied threat. Then I could sue her. I need more money for toilet paper so that I can clean my dirty ass.

    Also, if she is your dear aunt, might I suggest you implore her to buy you a new keyboard. Yours seems to be broken. Maybe she can ante up for some education too.

    You are utterly predictable. If you honestly cannot see the hypocrisy in your comments, then I suggest you seek both educational and psychological help for your own sake if not my own.

    I have a question for you, if HBC doesn’t care what anyone says of her (which is likely true, and good on her) then why does it matter what I say about her? She doesn’t care. Why should you?

    I’m not mean to everyone. I’m just mean to stupid people. What I said about HBC, Burton, and Depp isn’t meanness. It’s simply criticism. As much as I dislike them, I feel confident they recognize the difference.

    Do you have any documentation that proves that Johnny Depp is the “RICHEST ACTOR OUT THERE.” I really don’t care, but a statement like that begs for some vetting. You should be more careful with what you say on the internet. Someone posing to be Will Smith’s niece might come along and make idle threats at you in all caps.

    I do sit ON my computer all day. It gets a bit uncomfortable, but the fan blowing up my rear makes it worth while.

    I find it odd that you judge HBC based on the fact that you’ve seen all of her films. You’re her niece, right? Don’t you think real life interaction would help you know her better than when she is pretending to be someone she isn’t? Oh, maybe it’s that last bit that you find so appealing.

    Molly, Phil, Big Bird, whatever the heck your name is, do me a couple of favors before you bother replying again. First, PLEASE take off Caps Lock. It makes your already inane comments that much harder to stomach. Second, try to acquire some obviously not so common sense. Third, try to look at yourself in the metaphorical mirror.

    Finally, how is the weather in Toronto these days?

  29. November 14, 2008 5:21 pm

    NOW you are judging me? You’ve been judging me from your first post, but I am shocked and amazed you finally admit it.

    So, she’s not your aunt, but you know her? Would it shock you if I said I AM JOHNNY DEPP!?!?

    I’d imagine HBC and Burton are nice people. I’d give them the benefit of the doubt at any rate. That’s why I never said they weren’t. I was merely criticizing their work, and their appearance mildly (although it’s not HBC’s fault she reminds me of someone I loath). Do you understand that now? It wasn’t a pronouncement on their humanity as you seem to have believed.

    You may not live in Toronto proper, Molly Gilpin, but your IP originates from Rogers Cable which is based in Toronto. At any rate, this is getting boring. So, unless you have something further to add… you know apart from the incessant OMG HBC AND TIM BURTON WALK ON WATER, please just move on. I don’t want my inbox full of notifications about posts from Molly if it’s just about HBC and Burton.

  37. November 14, 2008 6:45 pm

    I’m sorry to hear you hate your dad. I’m not sure what stolking means, but I’m not “stalking” you if that’s what you meant.

    I did check your IP (which I can see when someone comments), and your email address (which you supplied when you posted). I then reverse IPed to see your basic geographic location, and googled your email account name which popped up your profile on Flixster. That’s not stalking, but doing a basic background check when someone claims to be the niece of HBC. If you were really her niece, I would have said, “ZOMG, can you get me an autograph?”

    If you don’t want people finding your e-trail, then use fake email addresses like helena_bonham_carter_sucks@acting.com

    Seriously though, it’s a good practice to use fake names, etc. if you want to protect a degree of anonymity online. There really is no anonymity, but don’t put any personal information online if you don’t want people to know who you are. Don’t make it easy for people, and whatever you do, don’t confirm information like you just did with me about what was your last name. You could very easily find my biographical information via this blog, but I don’t care.

    YOU REALLY HAVENT ANSWERD ANY OF MY QUESTIONS?

  44. November 14, 2008 9:45 pm

    Did you read your post? Did you see how contradictory it was?

    “NOW ONE WANT’S TO EVER HERE SOME ONE SAY THAT TO THEM WELL I JUST DID.”

    Then this charming sentence which clearly shows how “NOT DUM” you are:

    “JUST DO ME A FAVOUR KEEP YOUR MOUTH SHUT AND YOUR DUM OPINON’S TO YOURSELF AND I WILL TO (BUT I THAT CASE MINE ARE NOT DUM AT ALL.)”

    Wow. I’m glad you have posted some illustrative comments, because they are sure to dumbfound many for generations to come.

    I’ll answer your questions in English to the best of my ability, but I’ve reason to doubt your comprehension of the language given your posts.

    I’ve repeated quite often what I really think of HBC and Burton. Which is to say, I don’t much care for their work as a whole. I find most of it repetitive, predictable, and dark and odd simply for the sake of being dark and odd.

    That’s their work. I know very little of the people themselves. I’ve never made any judgments as to their character or personality. I don’t know enough to make such a judgment, nor do I really care to. I give them, as I give everyone else, the benefit of the doubt, and assume they are decent human beings until proven otherwise.

    I don’t even hate their work so much as it just annoys me. I do hate when their vocal fans, such as yourself, claim them to be the greatest actress and director to ever live. As I said, I know very little of them personally, but I feel it highly likely that they’d disagree with such a statement. I’m sure they’re proud of their work, but that doesn’t mean they are pompous asses with an inflated sense of their work. I have favorites too, but I don’t claim them to be the BEST EVAR!!! I understand you’re fond of them, but tone it down a little bit, and people might take your opinions a tad more seriously.

    I have mentioned a dislike of HBC’s face and looks. I further supplied the reason for it: she reminds me of someone I loath. Who that person is is irrelevant. I can hardly blame HBC for this, nor do I, but it does give me further reason to avoid her work.

    While I was typing this, I noticed you posted twice more. Once, in complaint that I haven’t answered your questions. Patience is a virtue.

    The other is a comment about Harry Potter, which further indicates to me your inability to read, as my initial post quite clearly states:

    “I do plan on seeing at least one more movie with her in it, but it pains me that she is in it. She is playing Bellatrix Lestrange in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. I think she will probably be OK, because I do think she is a fair actress. However, I think they should have cast someone taller and more beautiful, because that’s how she was described in the book. Either way, I have high expectations for the film.”

    For the record, I consider her performance adequate, much as I predicted I would. I still feel it was a miscast, but not the worse case scenario.

    I love helena bonham carter, I think she is great! I can understand why you avoid her work if you think she looks like someone you don’t like; I do this too. I’m only commenting on here to defend her because she is one of my favorite actresses. I think she is a wonderful actress and pretty, as well. However, I see your side of the argument, too, and think you have argued your point well. I do suggest that you see Fight Club though. It is amazing, not only because of the acting, but largely because of the clever story and quotability of the script, which is what you seem to mainly judge movies by. Like I said before, I think Helena is a very talented actress, but I’ll admit that I’m probably a little biased,seeing as how I’m a huge fan. Hopefully I do not sound like an annoying, unintelligent fan that is the main cause of your dislike of Helena. :) Peace!

    Finally, a sane person. Thanks for your comment.

    Yeah, you’re not the first person to recommend Fight Club, and I’m sure I’ll get around to it someday. Unfortunately, I know the primary twist already, and that’s gonna weaken the film’s impact on me. Still, I’ve heard good things.

    You definitely didn’t come off as unintelligent or annoying, and I greatly appreciate that.

    WHY DO YOU HAVE TO PICK HELENA OVER ALL THE BAD ACTRESSES OUT THERE, WHY DO YOU HAVE TO DO THIS TO HER? WHY CAN YOU SAY OH BECAUSE SHE RIMINDS ME OF SOMBODY I HATE I HATE HER AS WELL?
    I STRONGLY ADDVISE YOU TO SEE SOME MORE OF HER MOVIES. MABY WATCH NOVOCAIN IT IS NOT AS DARK ITS A COMADY.
    BY THE WAY IF SWEENEY TODD IS SO DARK WHY DID IT WIN BEST COMADY? AND IF HELENA IS THE “WORST” ACTRESS EVER WHY HAS SHE WON SO MANY AWARDS? AND SAME WITH JOHNNY DEPP?

    OK TELL ME SOMTHING THEN IF HELENA IS NOT BUTIFUL WHY WAS SHE AND STILL TO THIS DAY IS CALLED THE ENGLISH ROSE? THAT GOES WITH OUT SAYING SHE WAS,IS AND FOREVER WILL BE THE MOST BUTIFUL ONE.

    AND THEY MADE BELLATRIX LIKE THAT SHE HAS BEEN IN JAIL FOR 14 YEARS. SHE ISENT SOPOSED TO BE PRETTY (BY THE WAY SHE STILL IS) SHE IS SOPOSED TO LOOK LIKE SHE HASENT TOOK CARE OF HER I MEAN HOW IS SHE SOPOSED TO? SHE’S BEEN IN JAIL. AND SHE IS PRETTY EVEN STILL.

    OH YES SAYING I THINK YOU HAVE LEARNING DISABILITY THAT’S VERY CHARMING BUT IF I HAD ONE I WOULD BE JUST LIKE YOU. AND NOBODY IS THERE RIGHT MIND WANT’S TO BE LIKE YOU.

    i think molly and liz are soo right!!!!
    i love hbc, she is just the best actress ever!!!
    i cannot understand why you hate her so much and i think you should never hate someone because of his fans! you said, you haven´t really seen many of her films , so how can you say you hate her?
    and they can´t cast someone more beautifull as bellatrix, ´cause there is noone!
    i don´t say you have to like her, but if you don´t i think it´s silly to mention it that way in you post, when you hate her, just leave her alone!

    ps: molly, do you really know helena in person??

    This is like a bad zombie movie, but instead of the undead multiplying, it’s rabid HBC fans. At least Molly is attempting to make legitimate arguments, and for that, I applaud your progress.

    Sweeney Todd won several awards for best Musical or Comedy. They lump the two genres together. It was a musical. Be advised that it also won an award for Best Horror Film.

    Did I ever say HBC was the worst actress ever? No. In fact, I have mentioned that she is at least a capable actress. I just don’t like her. Oh, no, the Earth will stop rotating, because I don’t like her.

    Beauty is a subjective study. I don’t find her beautiful. You do. I’m fine with that. You should be too. If everyone shared the same aesthetic criteria, there would be a lot of lonely people in the world. Variety is the spice of life as they say. They’ll have theirs, and you’ll have yours, and I’ll have mine. And together we’ll be fine…. Because it takes, Diff’rent Strokes to move the world. Yes it does. It takes, Diff’rent Strokes to move the world.

    As for your suggestion that HBC is an exemplary actress because she’s won so many awards, I say poo poo. Some of the best actors and actresses haven’t won diddly squat, and some consistently subpar performers do win after scoring the role of a life time. For the record, HBC has never won an Oscar (the only award worth mentioning). She was nominated once, and lost. As I said, awards mean crap. This doesn’t prove she is a good actress, and it doesn’t prove she is a poor actress either.

    I’m completely fine with the disheveled nature of Bellatrix after her years in Azkaban. As I said, I think HBC did OK with what she had. I still feel it a miscast however, because Bellatrix is supposed to be tall. We can disagree on the assessment of beauty, but even you must admit that HBC is anything but tall. She just didn’t look like the character as opposed to so much of the rest of the casting for the Harry Potter series. Again, I don’t hold that against HBC, but rather those who cast her.

    You feel a suggestion of mental deficiency is charming, and STILL claim the same of me? I don’t know whether to be flattered, or simply laugh.

    helena4ever, I appreciate your support of HBC, but Liz had no problem determining my justifications of dislike for HBC. I suggest you reread my comments more thoroughly if you have any questions. I doubt it would do you much good, however, as you made several comments mirroring the commander of Helena Bonham Carter’s Gestapo, Miss Molly.

    Just a quick question, how could I possibly not like her if she is as you say, the most beautiful actress in the world? You give me the option of not liking her, but not the option of thinking her less attractive than anyone else. Surely, attractiveness is not the only factor in liking an actress, but it definitely figures in to the discussion when we’re discussing the casting of a character that is supposed to be gorgeous.

    you say she is not pretty enough to be Bella, okay, think so, but why do you have to write it in your damn post? you cannot change her look, and i think you´re really the only one who thinks that way. so many people i talked to sayed helena is exactly how they imagened bellatrix and noone sayed it bugs him, that she isn´t that tall. she is Bella and she will also be in the coming hp movies, so stopp thinking of her might be not the right one, i think the people who casted her know it much better than you do!

  53. November 16, 2008 6:46 am

    Yes, because casting directors never make mistakes.

    You obviously talk to people who share an expectation of mediocrity in film. I’m not saying HBC was the worst cast in history of film, but she is certainly the weakest cast in the HP series. Not based on acting, but appearance.

    We can disagree on this. I’m fine with that, but why the heck would you say I shouldn’t post about it on my blog? That’s what blogs are for: shitheads saying whatever they want, because no one is reading, and even if they are, who cares? I didn’t realize that you couldn’t speak ill of HBC in any fashion, but especially on a blog that no one visits.

    Give me a break.

    There is no battle.

    You misquoted Edgar Allen Poe’s “The Raven.”

    You hurl insults like a 4-year-old with stinky drawers.

    Your supposed relationship with HBC is questionable at best, as you started by claiming she was your aunt, and then when asked about it, said you only knew her. It sounds like the typical lies a tween would utter. At least when Chunk would lie he would do the truffle shuffle first. “WAIT U DONT NO WHAT THAT IS FROM BECAUSE YOU ARE AN IDIOT.”

    K THIS COULD ME MY FINALE COMMENT…Helena Bonham Carter is a great actress and one of the few who can make you belive in the carecters she is playing. and not many actresses can do that. and same part ther with johnny depp and tim burton. yes i do agree tim burton’s movies are dark and wierd but that’s how they are sopost to be and sure you may not like them but i do. and you can not change my mind other ways. i love tim burton films because they are dark. he takes changes not many directers do that THATS what makes him the best. i dont mind that some people like them but many people do. and its me and many others would like you to keep your opinons to your self you dont have to like them.

    but why do YOU have to put it on the internet. we would never have had this descusion and yea.

    i think YOU should just stop all this foolishnes. and lern to except that people love them and some people do not.

    yes she is my absolute fav actress in the world and johnny and tim are the same (my fav) and you will never change that.

    so please try and reframe your self from any judge ment of eny kind. im not so sure i should comment back to you because i know what Helena wonts. and i know what tim and johnny want.

    if they were on here say right now at this time they would say don’t be so judgemental. and they would mind that this is on here. they don’t care what people say about them but what people say TO them is diferent it’s like somthing is agants them and they can’t do it. BUT they are doing the absolute best!! and they really ARE the best there is.

    No problem.

    You don’t help your case by saying my criticism of them shouldn’t be on the net. What the heck is the net good for if not pissing on sucky things?

    If the Triumvirate of Suckage were “here” right now I’d say the same things I’ve already said of them. Right “TO” them. If they cried in despair, I consider it a good day, laugh at them, and tell them to grow up. I offer you the same.

    Wow Molly, maybe you should read the dictionary and learn what “Dum” means. Not to mention the fact that you need to learn how to spell it correctly. In fact, there are a ton of grammatical errors in all of your posts. I’m not saying that I’m perfect. I’m far from it. But seriously, you are the one that is immature.
    Face the fact that no one person shares ALL of your opinions. And that is what they are “opinions” not facts. You may have heard the phrase “Opinions are like Assholes. Everyone has them but most of them stink”. You have no idea who Helena, Tim, or Johnny are in real life. You obviously enjoy their work. That is fantastic. I do too. Just because you like them doesn’t mean that EVERYONE should. You are not the Borg Queen. And resistance is not futile.
    But, like I said not everyone shares your opinions. Lister is in that category. You have no idea who he is either. So may I suggest that you cut your losses and just leave this section of the internet. It just makes you mad. And he isn’t leaving.

    You ask what you did, supply the answer, and then don’t see why it was immature?

    Why would not responding be more mature than responding? The idea is to correct poor behavior immediately rather than tolerate it. That’s why I respond to every post you and Molly make: they’re indicative of bad behavior which requires reproach.

    As per usual, your retorts are limited to adolescent mutterings like “shut up,” or “Nuh, uh, you are.” You even bypassed “yo mommas,” and went straight for the lowest jibes known to man. You should be ashamed of yourself.

    I never claimed to be the most mature person in the world (as this rant clearly indicates the opposite), but I do require a degree of sophistication when it comes to the hurling of insults. If you can’t keep up, then please do us all a big favor, and take your ball and go home.

    James/SNIF I found your post comical. Well, what little of it I could decipher that is. It seems all of the HBC fans throughout the world share the same fifteen brain cells. I guess that explains the attraction and undying loyalty in the face of reason.

    Shock me, and practice what you preach by not being so harsh. Otherwise, Tim might beat you up too. We all know how much of a badass Tim Burton is.

    Now, stop using your school’s computers to show how truly idiotic you are, and instead try learning some basic logic and grammar skills. By the way, how is the weather up there in Kitchener? Watch out, the teacher is coming!

    Helena Bonham Carter is an amazingly talented and beautiful actress. You think she sucks, fine, that’s your opinion, it may be wrong, but still, it’s your opinion. I honestly suggest to you that you watch Fight Club, Sweeney Todd and Harry Potter as she is brilliant in all of those.

    I have watched most of Helena’s films and I honestly believe that she is incredibly talented, she is also incredibly beautiful and doesn’t deserve to have such negative derogatory comments made about her. She is a very down to Earth woman, and you should be ashamed of yourself.

      You HBC fans don’t even know her and you keep thinking Lister is a HBC hater. He/she isn’t a hater, he/she never said HBC was ugly or awful.

  84. March 8, 2009 2:19 pm

    I am not ashamed of myself for anything I have said about HBC. I’ve contended that she is at least an adequate actress, but wholly misrepresented by her sycophantic fans. I hate her psycho fans. I just don’t like her. There’s a big difference.

    The irrational, illiterate, and whiny adherents (there have been but few exceptions, yourself included) to all things HBC that have so gleefully graced these comments are quite clearly the ones deserving of shame.

    I appreciate your attempt at civil discourse on the matter, even if it attempts to hide insult. You, too are free to hold whatever opinion relative to HBC you wish.

    P.S., I have seen the Potter films, and find her performance at best adequate. I feel the casting of the character could have been better, but she doesn’t severely detract from the film either. As for Fight Club, it just seems that much of the magic of that film would be lost on me as I know the twist. Seeing Sweeney Todd is out of the question. While I only dislike HBC, I hate Depp, and I cannot stand films that feature Depp, HBC, and Burton’s handiwork in tandem. I recognize that you love them, but I never will. Simple as that.

  85. March 8, 2009 2:34 pm

    I’m sorry if you felt that my post was hiding an insult, as that wasn’t it’s intent. But I honestly do find it shocking that someone was label Helena as an “adequate” actress, especially for her portrayal of Bellatrix Lestrange.

    I have read on numerous sites, from people who also don’t like her, that she is brilliant in the role and is really under used in the film. I really am quite stunned. Can I just ask why you have such a hatred for Johnny Depp? (just wondering)

    I do however suggest you do watch Fight Club, despite the fact you know the twist. It’s a very good film, and Helena’s portrayal in it might just change your mind on her. Just a suggestion of course, you don’t have to.

  86. March 8, 2009 3:38 pm

    My apologies for misinterpreting your prior comment. Just one of the limitations of such internet discussion.

    My problem with HBC is more of a physical issue rather than her acting. I feel that the casting for the Potter films has been extraordinarily strong across the board until the part of Lestrange was concerned. My interpretation of that part saw a tall, exceptionally beautiful women. While her beauty can be argued, HBC isn’t tall. Furthermore, she reminds me of someone who I loathe, and her delivery in Potter accentuates it. All things considered, the casting of that part could have been much worse, but I wasn’t 100% pleased with it either.

    I think Depp is the most overrated actor working. He has shown skill, but typically dials in the same part over and over again. More power to him, as he is being paid quite well in so doing.

    I might catch Fight Club on TV some time, but my perception of HBC isn’t likely to change. As I said, she reminds me of someone I know in real life, and I can’t get beyond that. I’ve heard good things about her performance in that film, but even if I was blown away by her acting prowess I would still try to avoid most of her work for the aforementioned reason.

    For instance, I thought she was strong in Merlin, but still couldn’t stand watching her. There’s nothing she could do that would avoid that. The issue is my own.

  87. March 8, 2009 3:48 pm

    Ahh ok.

    Thanks for explaining all that to me, I know understand why you don’t like her. It would be hard for me to watch someone if they reminded me of someone I highly disliked too!

    I don’t think it’s particularly right to not like someone because of their partner.
    But to be honest, I think you should watch more of her movies before you FULL out judge her, you know?
    I totally respect your opinion though, and I respect you even more for not acting like a bloody idiot talking about it. You actually have factual reasons, which, most people don’t.

    Also, it’s not Helena’s fault she doesn’t look like Bellatrix, remember, people cast her. She doesn’t get to choose automatically.

    (Obviously you can tell I am a HBC fan, haha.)

    But I just wanted to say, out of all the people who dislike HBC, you are the first one I’ve seen online that explains why and is not rubbish about it.

    I don’t dislike HBC because of Burton. Well, not primarily anyway. It’s just more fuel for the fire.

    Likewise, I agree with you completely on the casting of Bellatrix. I don’t hold it against HBC. I think it’s the only weak cast of the films (for the major roles that is), and even as it is, it isn’t the end of the world.

    I appreciate your comments, and the balance of civility amongst HBC fans (on this thread at least) is beginning to sway from unreasonable to quite civil. Thanks.

    Hi there Lister… i really like Helena Bonham Carter, Tim Burton and Johnny Depp. i think they are all funny, happy people may i just ask why you must torment them? sure they are wird but great. i really enjoy there films because they (unlike most people) can act. Molly how ever is not a very inteligent person (i can say because she is my sister!) i really love all of them and my bigest wish is that you stop tormenting them. i just really want to say that people are people we may not get alonge but thats ok because we are only humans. i just wish you could grow up and act your own age. im always telling ym friends they need to grow up and they are 18 and 19 so i just wish you would see helena does not care what people say about her but i don’t like when people you age acts like toddlers! so thats it thanks for this and bye

    Hey, Hunter. How am I tormenting them if Helena does not care what people say about her? I am just giving your goddess a chance to shine so that we may bask in her magnificence.

    hey Lister this is a interview with helena i thought you would enjoy it :P:
    Helena Bonham Carter isn’t quite what you’d expect. All these years into her career (she is now 41, and made A Room with a View and Lady Jane when she was barely out of her teens), she still seems fixed to a large degree in the public imagination as the Merchant Ivory poster girl – the perfect English Rose forever wafting elegantly around, looking fragrant and distressed in bustles and corsets.

    In truth, Bonham Carter’s career has been more complex and interesting than that, and so, it transpires, is the woman. While Bonham Carter does have the posh vowels (she is the great grand-daughter of former prime minister Herbert Asquith), she is also disarmingly friendly and has an earthy (if not filthy) giggle, which she employs a lot. In short, otherworldly and ethereal Helena Bonham Carter is not.

    Then there are her looks. For someone so long hailed as the definitive ‘English rose’, it turns out that Bonham Carter is a proud ‘mongrel’, boasting a Czech/Spanish/Austrian Jewish/French/Russian heritage. In person, as on screen, Bonham Carter is hauntingly beautiful, with a childlike face, brown-rimmed eyes and that great bush of wild electrocuted-looking hair that makes her look as if she’s rushed straight from some Bronte-esque melodrama on the Yorkshire moors.

    Then, of course, there is Bonham Carter’s ‘unique’ dress sense. (The press love to snap her looking like a pile of Gothic laundry.) Though today, when we meet in a cafe near her north london home, she is disappointingly restrained in a black jumper and ruffled skirt. ‘I don’t think I dress eccentrically,’ says Bonham Carter, placing my tape recorder on the arm of her chair so that her tiny, tumbling voice can register. ‘I’m just not conservative, I guess – I dress according to what like. And I’m not a mannequin, as you can tell.’

    At the time of our talk, Bonham Carter is also pregnant by her partner, leftfield Hollywood director Tim Burton, with whom she’s worked on projects such as Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Big Fish and The Corpse Bride (since their relationship began, she has often been referred to as Burton’s ‘weirdo muse’).

    Bonham Carter and Burton already have a son, Billy, four, and, shortly after we meet, she gives birth to a baby girl. At our meeting she is still pregnant, and how – her bump is so big she can barely sit up properly and keeps threatening to slide off the chair.

    ‘Yes,’ laughs Bonham Carter, ‘I am technically about to have a baby. I could technically go into labour right now.’

    She tells me she was working so hard on Burton’s latest project, a film version of Sondheim’s musical Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, that she didn’t think she could get pregnant. When she did, she wasn’t popular with costume and continuity. ‘If you look at the film and see my breast size, it goes up and down like a yo-yo. I have my usual tangerines and I walk around the corner and suddenly they’re melons.’ Sliding down in her chair again, Bonham Carter erupts into giggles.

    We’re here to discuss Bonham Carter’s playing the pie-making Mrs Lovett in Sweeney Todd, also starring Johnny Depp in the title role as the throat-slashing barber.

    Recently nominated for a Golden Globe, Sweeney Todd is as gruesome, murky and twisted as they come (blood and guts oozing everywhere). Depp and Bonham Carter are impeccably sinister, and rather brilliant, dramatically and musically, right up to the climax, where, throats having been slit, they bleed to a grisly crimson death. ‘It’s not feel-good,’ says Bonham Carter, by way of understatement.

    Bonham Carter loved playing Mrs Lovett, and refers to herself as a ‘musical whore’. ‘I’ve always loved musicals,’ she says. ‘Tim thought I was making Billy gay because that’s all I’d sing to him.’ She even claims that singing for Sweeney Todd may have got her pregnant. ‘It was all the oxygen. And my pelvic floor has never been so fit. I’ve got great hopes that after this baby it’s going to bounce straight back.’

    Bonham Carter adds that, contrary to what people might think, she does not get parts in Burton’s movies simply because they are a couple. ‘I really do have to be righter than right before Tim lets me do a part,’ she says. ‘Sexual favours don’t get me anything.’ In the case of Sweeney Todd, Sondheim had the final say over casting, and Bonham Carter auditioned for him. She describes getting the part as ‘the most absolutely amazing thing. I just could not believe it. Nor could Tim, actually. He burst into tears. And I burst into tears.’

    I ask Bonham Carter if being with on set with Burton is a bit like being the teacher’s kid – always mindful of charges of favouritism, they criticise and ignore you more. She nods: ‘It’s inverted favouritism. Or maybe just sadism. Whatever the opposite of favouritism is.’

    I point out that Burton uses Depp again and again, and nobody criticises that. ‘Tim doesn’t sleep with Johnny though,’ drawls Bonham Carter, deadpan. ‘I can vouch for that. He only sleeps with me.’ Her lips twitch. ‘But he and Johnny have a perfectly cordial relationship.’

    The way Bonham Carter tells it, things occasionally got rocky between her and Burton on the Sweeney Todd set. ‘There are certain stresses that come with working together,’ says Bonham Carter. ‘There’s no pretence with us, you see. No “Let’s adopt our formal selves”.’

    What sort of thing is she talking about? ‘Well, he was all: (growls) “How difficult is it to come through the door and cover that spot!” And I’d be (whines): “I’ve got wool in my head because I’m fucking pregnant, and there’s blood everywhere and I didn’t see it, all right?” And all I get is: “Action!”‘

    During all this, says Bonham Carter, people working with them on set would either look down or away (‘Johnny was forever polishing his razors’). She grins: ‘One weekend, Tim and I came up with Indian nicknames for each other. I called him Big Chief Little Patience. His name for me was Little Squaw Running Mouth, ie I talk too much. Stay schtum!’

    Sounds like being a muse, even a ‘weirdo’ one, isn’t all it’s cracked up to be?

    ‘I don’t know if you could call me a muse,’ grins Bonham Carter. ‘Most muses are silent.’

    after reading this iv come to my conclusion i don’t mind what you say about helena because she laughs at her self and erverybody laughs at them selfs sometimes so im good with it thanks lister :)

    You’re right, Hunter. I made this site just to “tornent” her. Well, done, inspector. It’s not like I’ve made hundreds of posts NOT dealing with HBC.

    I gleaned nothing of value from that article. It reinforced my perception of HBC’s mediocrity, Depp’s cookie-cutter performances, and Burton’s absurdly overrated reputation.

    Still, I’m amazed you have the ability to copy and paste. Good on you. You seem to be slightly less retarded than your sister. Maybe one day you will finally master the ability to wipe your own butt.

    I never claimed or otherwise implied you were a stalker, that would be an insult to stalkers everywhere. Since your investigative skills are as inept as your communicative abilities, I will let you in on a secret:

    Lister is a loser.

    That was the point, Brainiac. He’s a character from the British sci-fi comedy, Red Dwarf. I would suggest looking it up, but I truly doubt you have the necessary faculties.

    Your pathetic attempts of guilt tripping are laughable. Even if your “sister” killed herself, I would hardly be a murderer, and I certainly wouldn’t feel remorseful or guilty in any way. You’re barking up the wrong tree with that method.

    If you plan on being insulting, at least hone up on your skills. I just laugh at your attempts. What else do you have?

  102. June 7, 2009 6:54 pm

    Haha Mr.Lister you are right these kids have no idea. Hunter is smarter than most on here, though i don’t think she knows what she is saying…
    i must have to ask Hunter, did miss Molly really die of Mr.Lister? or is that something that you just needed to say? See in our life there ARE things that need to be said, and things that are not needed to be said. Im just wondering most of you children on here, are not very bright… Mr.Lister why do you not like Ms.Bonham Carter? i would just love to know your side of everything. I know it says up top how dark she is, and what ever you said but before i aggree with the others, I need to know your story. not to mention i don’t really care, nore i want to hear it, but i need to know to tell others on my website.
    Hunter my dear im sorry that Ms.Molly has died im very sorry for your loss, but im not sure you should blame Mr.Lister… Yet.
    Thank you for this time and all these very funny replys.

    P.S mr.lister miss molly in her majesty’s secret service is not right, it should be
    MS not miss unless my dear was merried…

    Nicolas, if you want to see why I don’t like HBC, read the friggin’ comments. I’m tired of rehashing every time one of you crazy, Canadian school kids joins the fray. You’re all representing your countrymen terribly well.

    By the way, Nicolas, assuming Molly did die (which we all know is bollocks) I wouldn’t be responsible in the least. If anyone was responsible, aside from Molly of course, it would be HBC for encouraging and enabling her fans to be so irrationally sycophantic. HBC should be ashamed of herself.

    Canadians (including you too Lilian), you are truly daft. Moving aside, I have evidence that you are making the posts from Canada now. I don’t care if you were born a Canuck or not. You’re in Canada now, buddy.

    First look at these recent posts:

    Even someone of your incredibly deficient intellect should be able to see that the IP addresses are the same. Which, for the incredibly stupid people among us, the Canadians, that means you are all at least on the same network.

    After a simple reverse IP lookup, we find this:

There’s a reason the United States is the sole super power (though China is certainly closing the gap if they haven’t already). If you think Canada would be as nice as it now WITHOUT the United States, then you might truly be mentally challenged.

      As for the picture, it is of the character, Dave Lister from the BBC comedy, Red Dwarf. I purposefully chose the goofiest image I could for the avatar. Given the complete tongue-in-cheek nature of this blog. That seems to be lost on many of you.

    You really dont know a thing about acting nor cinema do you?
    Because Helena Bonham Carter is one of the most gifted actresses out there, she can portray every single character that interests her, and that is very hard to find in a actor…
    About Tim Burton…
    He is considered a genius in film making industry!!
    The only reason that i might find that explains why you find Helena Bonham Carter so annoying and that you don’t like Tim Burton is that you only enjoy watching films with no sense at all and watching actors that have no talent.

      Johanna, I know you want to be an actress and all, but your infatuation with HBC hardly qualifies you to be objective in your analysis here. The same is obviously the case with me and my dislike of her. Therefore, it’s improper for you to suggest my opinion is invalid based upon a supposed lack of cinematic understanding. Even if it were true, our opinions on the matter are clearly subjective. The objective realm has little to do with this discussion.

      Despite your personal attacks on me, I wish you good luck with your acting aspirations. Maybe one day you’ll get to work with HBC and Tim Burton! I might even have a post about how much I dislike you here someday too! Although, I doubt it, as I found your YouTube video to be far less annoying than either of the two of them. At any rate, sincerely, good luck.

    Oh my lord. Honestly, I just read all this and Lister, I can only apologise from the sane side of the HBC/Burton camp.
    Okay, I absolutely adore HBC and Tim Burton, but I can totally understand what you are saying, and I think that you have justified your opinions well and made it perfectly clear your reasoning behind your comments.

    I thought this was pretty funny to start with, but I felt I had to say something to try and salvage the little reputation us HBC fans have left. I assure you we are not all part of the ‘Band of Retards’, and personally, I would be mortified if anyone tarred me with the same brush as them.

    Don’t get me wrong, I’ll defend Helena to the hilt if its some completely unjustified and downright nasty comment that’s been made about her, but there is absolutely NOTHING here that deserves the complete and utter rudeness that has been shown here by Molly and by others. I’m 17 and I would like to think that you people are just kids, but I fear that you are my age.

    A word of advice; if you are, grow up, join a debating club and read the dictionary before trying to start an argument with people more intelligent and articulate than yourselves.

    Oh, and finally; I’m sure as hell Helena would absolutely hate you for creating such a drama. She’s a fairly intelligent woman… and you, judging by your arguments… are most certainly not.

      I have to admit, when I saw the email notification about this thread, I thought, “Oh, geeze, here we go again.” Thanks for proving that assumption wrong, and for increasing this posting’s civility and intelligence.

    hey, just wanted to say that im a helena bonham carter/ tim burton fan. u never really said why u dont like them. not that you have to . you said she reminds you of someone you use to know? im sure that would naturally cause a bitter reaction. btw i agree with Vicki. you shouldn’t be scorned for not liking her , just like we shouldn’t be for liking her.

  130. May 23, 2010 5:55 am

    You clearly saw the comment about her reminding me of someone else. That’s why I started disliking her.

    Then she, Burton, and Depp made the same movie with characters that only changed names 20 times. Then I really started to not like her. Which reminds me, thank you, South Park for voicing my opinion yet again: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XVVYLKmnDPg

    Then the psycho squad from Canada started inundating this blog with mind-numbingly inane comments. Then I hated her.

    I see no reason not to scorn psychotic behavior in whatever form it takes.

        cool, ok, first.. lister your comments are absolutely awesome, we all have a right to leave opinions and make blogs wherever and whenever we see fit, (its a right humans have).. to gather the opinions of others for general educational purposes, (in whatever subject that happens to interest us at any point)and YES hbc’s fame is up there with being an interesting subject because IMO she is absolutely repulsive.. her acting is POOR, her voice is patronizing and manly in almost every role and seeing her today (again) in a cheap movie called mighty aphrodite, she was as useless and depressing as ever.. absolutely as far from beautiful as it may be possible to get.. i have never seen an uglier actress.. and almost made my dinner come up in terminator salvation, (besides the quiet, snubbed nosed, mixed race afro kid) who was also slightly disturbing.. johnny depp has also ruined some great classics as an actor.. thats very selfish and unprofessional but maybe he’s too up his own back side to realize.. as for tim burton, i think he knows he has no talent so tries to exploit his knowledge of the easily manipulated mass public with his shocking crap (which he does well) the lunatic obviously has to make a living too and obviously does it without a shred of consideration for the sane tasteful portion public.. there are many dark movies which are fantastic, man hasnt got a clue but came slightly close to engaging with edward scissor hands and corpse bride.. but hasn’t managed to make anything “good” while making a mountain of indisputable GARBAGE! im absolutely shocked she has one fan let alone a handful or more.. just goes to show how impressionable and susceptible some absolute idiots are to any old loser as long their being shown within the idiot box.. or big screen, most lapping up the “stars” without question. also if that girl really died, thats her parents fault for not getting the little psycho any help.. i think her career is built around everything UGLY and even SHE knows that.. being portrayed as beautiful would probably be considered an insult by her.. i guess she has done that well.. because i find everything she does comparable to an alcoholics vindaloo hangover vomit.. she is turd, she is incomparably mashed and disturbs me that a human can look so unattractive or sexy, shes a BEAST.. (a hammer plus her head equals fun) pity im not violent.. i wish she would be kind and fuck off but unfortunately she needs money and can only utilize the tools she has which is by being a sick twisted malnourished ugly unwashed looking evil little slag.. (i say slag because she isn’t sexy with those nipple showing tops) her breasts are beyond misshapen and offensive.. my first and last post.. to your VERY and BEYOND polite comment which actually made her seem way more credible than she is. have a great day lister.

    Hey Lister
    I just read your post and I have to say I agree almost wholeheartedly on the idea that Tim Burton makes his films odd and dark just for the sake of being odd and dark. However, as he is the only director doing these weird films it isn’t overdone (it easily could become if either Tim Burton made more or if there was more than him making them). I must say this, however, when Tim does an original film, ie Big Fish or Ed Wood, it is a solid film and I think the reason he is classified as one of the “great” directors of his tine is because he is different yet still brings in the $$$.
    Helena is one area where I must disagree. While I can understand that you don’t like to look at her or whatever I think this post was unnessesary as you haven’t seen enough of her work to comment. Granted you’ve seen about 4 of her films, yet I believe you must see more before you can make a judgement on her acting. I agree that she wasn’t the best person to play Bellatrix visually however her acting turns the fact that she isn’t the Bellatrix described in the book into something that doesn’t even cross my mind (I am a devoted Harry Potter fan).
    Helena is a fantastic actress and I think you should reserve judgement and watch a few more of her films before you say something.
    Also, Molly is a physco and needs to go to school.

    This wasn’t a direct attack but I am so sick of reading about people dissing Helena I had to speak up.

    @liz farrell – Don’t hold back. Tell us how you really feel, hehe.

    @Mary – The great directors are not limited by a genre. They are not one trick ponies. Tim Burton is good at one thing for sure, and he shovels that to the teenies that think its clever. Good on him for making a buck. I don’t begrudge him a thing, but I definitely don’t feel he is anywhere near the upper echelon of filmmakers in his relative generation. I’m not saying he is without talent, but that talent is utterly wasted by his predictability.

    As for HBC, by my count I have seen seven movies, or in the case of Merlin a miniseries, with her. Your criticism would have been valid had I seen but one or two films. How many times do I need to put my hand in a hot flame before I can establish an axiom that indicates that doing so will burn me? How many times do I need to watch a HBC performance before I can accurately predict that her performance will be jarring, over the top, and that she will scream at least once before the movie is over?

    I wait in partial dread to see the concluding Potter films, and that is in no small part due to HBC’s inclusion in the cast.

    Having said that, this post continues to bring me chuckles, as HBC is not even my least favorite actress. That title remains with Renée Zellweger. My chief beef with HBC tends to be her imbecilic fans. So, thank you for bucking the trend, and stating your opinions in a rational and coherent manner.

    This was the most entertaining series of comments I have ever read… including some of my personal favourites on youtube.
    When you said “This is like a bad zombie movie, only with rabid HBC fans” I actually dribbled a little with laughter. Thank you for that.
    I am a HBC fan, and personally think she is a complete English rose, quirky and pretty. Yes, she is a bit of a weirdo, but I think that adds to her charm.
    I can understand your hatred of the repetitiveness of a Tim Burton movie, and the continuous casting of ‘Tim Burtons’ life partner’ and Johnny Depp. Seriously, when does it become polite not to keep pretending to be pleasantly surprised? But, they have become an auteurship together. Its expected, and has many fans. I love the predictable, gothy, misunderstood kind of themes that Tim has going on, and HBC and Johnny Depp compliment this perfectly.
    With every star though, you will have rabid fans unfortunately, particularly 10 year olds who are searching for role models. Mine was Miranda Richardson- and I used to watch her in absolutely everything because I loved her. You have to make some allowanced, Molly is possibly quite a young girl, looking for a role model, and HBC gives her a nod to tell her its okay to be different and a bit edgy. This is why she’s defending her so much. Its devotion on par to a member of your family, I remember the feeling. Haha!
    Hopefully, there is one film of HBC’s that I definitely recommend, it’s narrative is propelled by the dialogue, it’s split screen and very unusual. It’s called Conversations with Other Women, and is one of my favourite films. Completely bittersweet, and realistic. Fight Club is also very good, but if you do want to see HBC out of one of her crazy characters, please watch Conversations, I’m sure it will make you look at her in a very different way.
    Keep with the posts!

    She’s actually very intelligent unlike all the dumb actresses. Doesn’t care what anyone thinks, she IS a good role model. In England she has done alot of voice overs on commercials and audio books. Want to know why? because she has a beautiful voice and is very well spoken. Maybe you should watch more of her films before you judge her, she was working with some great actors/actresses at a very young age and works extremely hard for every part she plays. much lavvv

    • July 2, 2011 5:09 pm

      In the future, do me a favor and try reading everything before you comment.

      Why are you justified in dissing other actresses so generally, yet I am unjustified in dissing HBC? Hypocrisy knows no bounds, and especially so with the sycophantic mobs of HBC’s psycho fans..

      My only issue with her looks (excluding costuming and makeup, etc.) is that she reminds me of someone I knew in real life who I despised. I don’t really care what she looks like. She isn’t my cup of tea, but I can see how she would be for others.

      By the way, I thought she was solid in The King’s Speech. Maybe if she made more mature content I wouldn’t dislike her performances as much, and as a pleasant side effect, fewer of her mindless droves of fans would plaster inane comments on my blog.
