I feel the need to post this because I've noticed that since I've gotten a blog, I pretty much havn't mentioned Helena Bonham Carter at all. Which is weird. Because you know, in my opinion, she is pretty much the greatest person in the universe!!!
Also, I decided it was high time I listened to some post Alice interviews, especially after having the luck to record her HP premiere interview when I was in London IN WHICH SHE SCARED THE BEJESUS OUT OF US ALL BY SUDDENLY SLIPPING INTO CHARACTER AND DOING THE BELLATRIX LAUGH. GET THIS FLIST. GET THIS. THAT? IT IS ON MY CAMERA. HELENA IS ON MY CAMERA. Sorry. Still not over that.
Anyway, you see, I have my other amazing actress flings, but none of them can ever quite seem to touch the cocktail of eccentrism, hilarity, randomness, beauty, and powerhouse, intelligent acting that is HBC (admittedly the bonkers but brilliant Nicola Walker does probably come closest) Helena always wins out in the end. It's interviews like this that is why:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c-XNsqdgPH4&feature=related
Oh Helena. You keep eating those strawberries and saying random things because I WILL LOVE YOU FOREVER AND EVER. Also, NEVER EVER change your style. Because you know what, Helena? IT'S FUCKING AWESOME. ALSO ALSO YOUR HAIR IS THE GREATEST I HAVE EVER SEEN IT. NEVER CHANGE.
GUYS. GET. THIS. HELENA WEARS HER MRS LOVETT BLOOMERS TO INTERVIEWS.
I repeat: God I love her.
Also, this interview in which she reminds me of The Witch from Into The Woods:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PyyxGwX70QM&feature=related
I think she gets cooler by the year or something. I swear she was never this awesome in the period drama days! I just love how she chooses to sit on the chair, and that she has three drinks SO SHE GIVES ONE TO THE SHOCKED INTERVIEWER. HAHA HELENA. YOU ARE SO HILARIOUS.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n4JZMkIr4M8&feature=related
Above is the second part of the interview in which she suddenly parrots Craig's Scottish accent at random and slips into Morgan Le Fay speak. SHE ALSO HAS A SMALL HOLE RIPPED IN HER JACKET SO SHE CAN PULL OUT A MINI HER AS THE RED QUEEN AND FEED IT MARSHMALLOWS. I THINK I JUST DIED. HELENA? WHY ARE YOU SO MUCH MORE EXPONENTIALLY AWESOME BY THE SECOND?
QUESTION GUYS? Why is Helena not my aunty? We would have fun times we would.
So yes. Much as I love the Miranda Richardson's, the Emily Watson's, the Nicola Walker's, the Alex Kingston's, the Keeley Hawes, and the Billie Piper's of the world, NOBODY, NOT EVER, NOT IN A THOUSAND YEARS, WILL EVER BEAT THE GREAT HELENA BONHAM CARTER.
