Get to know me meme — [2/5] actresses: Helena Bonham Carter

"My confidence came to me very late in life. I felt distinctly unworthy because I had such an instant success. I was quite exposed, and I never went to drama school. I didn’t feel very good — and I’m pretty self-critical now. But I’ve started to get off my own back, because, you know, acting is just pretending, after all. In our society, there’s a lot made of acting, when ultimately the essential thing is you’re playing — you’re paid a lot of money just to play, and you’ve got to be responsible and take it seriously, but, at the same time, Jesus, it’s not a Nobel Prize endeavor"

My Burton is the best Burton. He makes me laugh, but he’s also adorable. He’s kind, and he’s true, and he’s honest. He helps me hugely in my life because, in many ways, he’s the opposite of me. I flit around and over-analyse, and he’s very instinctive and very steady. He’s my anchor -really, truly- and I feel lucky every single day to have found him.

I don’t agree to do a film because I think it’s going to be a success, I do it because I’m going to learn something from the character.

She’s very funny and bright and sexy and I really just connected to her and I think she’s like me in that she’s also misperceived a little; people think of her one way but she’s actually quite different. But then we’re all that way, aren’t we?
