Helena Bonham Carter and Tim move in together

Friday October 5, 2012

After years of living in separate houses - abeit in the same street - Helena Bonham Carter and Tim Burton have moved in together.

Although it's a temporary arrangement while one of their houses is being renovated, Helena has said that she does not find the couple's cohabitation as difficult as she thought.

Helena said: "It's going surprisingly OK. There's a lot to be said for being in shouting distance. And it's cosy. The kids love it." 

The couple's children, Billy, eight, and Nell, four, normally occupy their own house in which they live with their nanny.

In order to get around their unconventional domestic set-up, the couple have set up a routine where Helena cooks and Tim prepares the drinks.

Helena said: "I’ve always done the cooking, which I love. He can warm up. He does two-minute rice. And gets the drinks ready. He makes smoothies on a weekend.

"Our daughter once said to him, ‘Dadda, why don’t you make smoothies instead of movies?’”
