Daniel Radcliffe 'Interviews' Helena Bonham Carter

Helena Bonham Carter wears a swan headpiece by Stephen Jones for Giles Deacon in this feature from Interview‘s May issue.

Here’s what the 45-year-old Dark Shadows actress had to share with her Harry Potter co-star, Daniel Radcliffe, who interviewed her for the mag:

On the public’s perception of her: “I was weird right from the start. It’s just that you can’t ever expect people to get you. And I do think that really did mess with my head, being well-known young, when you really don’t know who you are. This is how ridiculous I was: I’d sometimes go look at a written profile of me and see how I was described and say, ‘Oh, is that who I am?’ You can’t ever put your self-definition in the hands of somebody who meets you for 15 minutes.”

On her long-time partner, Tim Burton: “He is very stressed. Directors are. The stress level – it’s a battle. I mean everything that can go wrong goes wrong. But then again, what’s great about working with Tim – when you’re involved with him – is that I get to see that on set, he’s having fun. But if I didn’t get to go on set, I’d think he was suicidal for six months.”

On what she’d like to do in her free time: “Learn to tap dance. Do something with children. Bond. Remind them, ‘Hello, I am your mother.’ [laughs] The free time is spent with the children, really, but if I have free time without them, I don’t know.
