    Helena Bonham Carter & Tim Burton Split After 13 Years Together

    Helena Bonham Carter and Tim Burton have split after thirteen years together.
    The couple “separated amicably earlier this year and have continued to be friends and co-parent their children. We would ask that you respect their privacy and that of their children during this time,” a rep for the 48-year-old actress said (via People).
    The couple, who never married, met on the set of his 2001 film Planet of the Apes. They have two children together,Billy, 11, and Nell, 7.
    Tim, 56, has frequently cast Helena in his movies. She’s had roles in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, Alice in Wonderland and Dark Shadows.

    That's sad. They seemed so perfect for each other.

    I've been in love with her since "Lady Jane". But my favorite incarnation of Helena is Bellatrix Lestrange:

    Aw, that's sad but not surprising after the pap shots and blinds.

    Yeah, there was a steady drumbeat of blinds about them that I didn't want to believe. Then, he got photographed in public with someone.

    Burton is rumored to have Asperger's. I hope he can deal with the change.

    I thought they split ages ago. I'm sure they are each hell to live with in their own way.

    Relationships inevitably seem to run out of steam for him, and then he trots off with someone else. Did it to her, he'll do it to you. These two really did seem remarkably compatible; maybe that's why it just lasted longer than usual. I hope the split was mutual and they actually do stay friends.

    She's always been interesting to me. Him not so much, though I like his movies. I wonder what she'll do next...

    I think it's safe to say that she won't be starring in any more Tim Burton movies.

    I was just checking that out, and the timeline basically bears that out in terms of likelihood.

    Before Helena, his long-time gf was Lisa Marie Smith. He cast her in Mars Attacks, Ed Wood, Sleepy Hollow, and (ironically) Planet of the Apes, which it seems is when Tim started hooking up with Helena (his new muse). Then, nothing for Lisa Marie (his old muse). For the next 10 years or so, she didn't do any shows or movies (according to IMDB).

    My guess is that he has already picked out a new muse and his working relationship with Helena is over (not that she needs him like Lisa Marie did).

    Eh. They're just (finally) making it official.

    Helena definitely doesn't need him.

    I think that's more a reflection of Lisa Marie's talent, or lack of it.

    I agree that Lisa Marie doesn't have anywhere near the acting talent of HBC. Ironically, Lisa Marie's IMDB entry shows her career finally picking up again around 2012.
