Well hell! Now where am I going to get my weird from?
After 13 years together, Tim Burton and Helena Bonham Carter have split. Helena is easily in my top three actresses (rounding out that list is Meryl Streep #1 and Charlize Theron) and who doesn’t love a good Tim Burton film? (I said “good” I know sometimes he and Johnny can go into their own personal land of Oz.
The couple “separated amicably earlier this year and have continued to be friends and co-parent their children,” Carter’s rep tells PEOPLE exclusively. “We would ask that you respect their privacy and that of their children during this time.”
The pair – who never married – first met when Burton, 56, directed Carter, 48, in 2001’s Planet of the Apes. (One of my favorite movies of all time coincidentally has my 2nd favorite actor: Tim Roth opposite Helena… they work awesomely together)
Since then, they’ve teamed up on several blockbusters, including Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, Alice in Wonderland and Dark Shadows.
Well will always have the bromance that is Tim & Johnny!
