Helena Bonham Carter and Tim Burton, who never married, split amicably earlier this year, according to the actress’ rep.
Tim Burton and Helena Bonham Carter separated amicably earlier this year and have continued to be friends and co-parent their children. We would ask that you respect their privacy and that of their children during this time.
The eccentric British actress and acclaimed American director have decided to call it quits after 13 years together. The couple lives in separate houses connected by a hallway in London and have two children, Billy, 11, and Nell, 7.
They first met in 2001 during filming of Planet Of The Apes, which Burton directed, and have since collaborated on many films, including Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber Of Fleet Street, Corpse Bride, Alice In Wonderland and Dark Shadows.
