Helena Bonham Carter And Tim Burton Dinner Date In London
British actress Helena Bonham Carter seems to have a think for playing characters called Elizabeth. Helena played Queen Elizabeth in the movie The King's Speech and now plays Elizabeth Taylor in the TV movie Burton and Taylor. While chatting about the new movie, Helena compared playing the two different Elizabeth's.

Carter told Collider, "I only do Elizabeth's. I’m looking for a third. You know what? They were both daunting, but I suppose the second one was more daunting. At least the first Elizabeth – Elizabeth the Queen Mother – was portrayed in The King’s Speech at a time in her life when she was a lot younger than the one that we remember. No one actually remembered what she looked like, when she was in her 30s."
 
She added, "Whereas with Elizabeth Taylor, even thought this was a time when Elizabeth wasn’t in her own prime, my mother still said, 'For Christ’s sake, don’t even go near that.  Don’t touch it with a barge pole.' She’s a screen icon. Everyone knew what she looked like, and I don’t look especially like her. So, I suppose she was definitely the more daunting Elizabeth. Also, The King’s Speech wasn’t about Elizabeth, it was about the King, and this is Burton and Taylor."
