Helena Bonham Carter on Tim Burton and Johnny Depp relationship

Helena Bonham Carter and Tim Burton Helena Bonham Carter isn't threatened by Tim Burton and Johnny Depp's friendship. The Les Misérables actress doesn't get jealous of her long-term partner's close relationship with the actor and says the big screen hunk is a firm favorite with their children, nine-year-old Billy and five-year-old Nell. When asked if she gets jealous, Helena said, "No, because Tim is not having sex with Johnny! No, I rejoice in the friendship! Johnny is a marvelous man and a wonderful friend. He is also godfather to our son Billy, and they have a wonderful relationship because Johnny is a dad himself. In Billy's eyes, Uncle Johnny can do no wrong." While she doesn't feel jealous, the eccentric British star - who has been in a relationship with Tim since 2001 - struggles to understand American humor and often feels left out of the filmmaker's conversations with Johnny. She laughed, "I don't actually understand what Johnny and Tim joke about. Culturally, they have had the same childhood and I haven't, so I don't get a lot of the same telly references. They try and explain what the joke is and I just go, 'huh?'" Helena and Johnny bonded over their mutual hatred of seeing themselves on screen and she can't even bring herself to watch her own films. She admitted, "I can never ever watch anything I'm in. I can't stand it. Neither can Johnny. And if it's all right for Johnny Depp to boycott his own films, I'm damned sure that it is totally okay for me."
