Helena Bonham Carter Speaks Out About 'The Crown's Fact Vs. Fiction Controversy

Helena Bonham Carter is weighing on the controversy surrounding The Crown.

Earlier this month, Princess Diana‘s brother, Earl Spencer, called out the program after seeing the depiction of his sister on the Netflix show.

British politician Oliver Dowden, who serves as the U.K.’s Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport, also spoke out about the hit show, and urged Netflix to put a disclaimer before episodes of The Crown to tell viewers that the series is a fictionalization and they should not take the show for absolute truth.

“It’s a beautifully produced work of fiction, so as with other TV productions, Netflix should be very clear at the beginning it is just that,” Mr. Dowden shared in a recent interview. “Without this, I fear a generation of viewers who did not live through these events may mistake fiction for fact.”

Helena, who played Princess Margaret in seasons three and four, is now speaking out and supporting the concerns.

“It is dramatized,” she stated. “I do feel very strongly, because I think we have a moral responsibility to say, ‘Hang on, guys, this is not…it’s not a drama-doc, we’re making a drama.’ So they are two different entities.”

Helena did add though that the research that series creator Peter Morgan does before each season is impressive.

“That is amazing, and then Peter switches things up and juggles,” she adds.

The bulk of season four concentrated on Prince Charles and Princess Diana, as well as Charles’ alleged affair with Camilla Parker-Bowles.

This isn’t the first time the show has been called out by someone. Find out what happened just last month…

Helena Bonham Carter Reveals How She Met Her Boyfriend Rye Dag Holmboe

Helena Bonham Carter rarely talks about her relationship with boyfriend Rye Dag Holmboe, but she just made some rare comments about him!

The 54-year-old actress previously defended the 21-year age gap between the two of them in an interview last year.

Helena plays Princess Margaret on The Crown and she compared her own relationship to Margaret’s relationship with Roddy Llewellyn, who was 17 years younger than her.

“It was odd timing that I seem to have a similar age gap as her, she said,” Helena told The Times last year. “Everybody ages at a different rate. My boyfriend is unbelievably mature. He’s an old soul in a young body, what more could I want?”

Now, Helena is opening up about how she met her man.

Pierce Brosnan and Helena Bonham Carter are teaming up for a new romantic comedy.

Deadline revealed that the two iconic actors will star in Not Bloody Likely, which explores the true story of the 1914 West End production of George Bernard Shaw’s Pygmalion.

The movie will be written and directed by Joel Hopkins.

The flick centers on Shaw (Brosnan), who has written his masterpiece Pygmalion and is determined for the great Mrs. Pat Campbell (Bonham Carter) to play the role of Eliza Doolittle.

But is her casting just a chance for Shaw to rekindle his once great love, the one that got away?

Production on the pic will kick off in the spring of 2021.

If you don’t know, Helena and Pierce are connected through Cinderella. She played the Fairy Godmother in Disney’s live-action film, and he just wrapped on Sony’s version starring Camila Cabello last month.

Helena Bonham Carter Speaks Out About Johnny Depp Ahead of His Libel Case Ruling

Helena Bonham Carter is speaking out ahead of her friend Johnny Depp‘s libel case ruling.

The Pirates of the Caribbean actor took the British newspaper The Sun to court after he was called a “wife beater” in connection to claims made by his ex-wife Amber Heard.

Back in July, Johnny and Amber were in court for weeks during the trial and now the ruling in the case will be revealed on Monday.

In a new interview with The Guardian, Helena said, “There’s something quite old-fashioned about Johnny, with these manners – none of it makes sense. But the man’s not stupid. He wouldn’t have gone to this length if he thought he was in the wrong.”

Some of the movies that Helena and Johnny did together include Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Sweeney Todd, Alice in Wonderland, Dark Shadows, and The Lone Ranger.

A very famous singer spoke out with support for Johnny just a couple weeks ago.

'The Crown' Season 4 Finally Gets Full Length Trailer - Watch Now!

The first full length trailer for The Crown season four just debuted, and Netflix also released character posters!

Here’s a synopsis of the new season: As the 1970s are drawing to a close, Queen Elizabeth (Olivia Colman) and her family find themselves preoccupied with safeguarding the line of succession by securing an appropriate bride for Prince Charles (Josh O’Connor), who is still unmarried at 30. While Charles’ romance with a young Lady Diana Spencer (Emma Corrin) provides a much-needed fairytale to unite the British people, as the transformation from teenager to Princess of Wales takes place, it is anything but a fairytale for Diana.

There will be 10 episodes in the season, which ranges from 1979 to 1990. Be on the lookout on Netflix on November 15 for the full debut!

The new season also stars Tobias Menzies as Prince Philip, Helena Bonham Carter as Princess Margaret, and Gillian Anderson as Margaret Thatcher.

The Crown's Olivia Colman & Helena Bonham Carter Share Their Advice For The Successors On The Show

Olivia Colman and Helena Bonham Carter will wrap up their roles as Queen Elizabeth and Princess Margaret after the upcoming fourth season of The Crown on Netflix.

The two stars have some advice for their successors on the program, which will be played by Imelda Staunton and Lesley Manville.

“If she calls me, I’ll be so excited. Then what would you say to Imelda Staunton?” Olivia pondered. “Good luck…the wig’s itchy.”

She added that Imelda, who was most memorable in her role as Dolores Umbridge in the Harry Potter franchise, “already got a much better walk than me.”

Helena, who will be passing on the torch to Lesley as Margaret, shared that she’d love to pass on one particular item to her.

“It’s like handing a baton. It’s like a relay race, but it never comes back,” she shared. “I want to hand her my cigarette holder and say, ‘Good luck with this.’ That would be nice, wouldn’t it?”

The Crown, season four, is expected to debut on November 15. Watch the newest trailer for the groundbreaking series here…
