"Famous people come up to me, but I don't know who they are because my sight is so bad. It's always at the pool of the Four Seasons in Beverly Hills when I don't have my lenses in and my glasses are in my room."
"Everyone will be famous for 15 minutes."Helena Bonham Carter on Andy Warhol
"I have no use for people who throw their weight around as celebrities, or for those who fawn over you just because you are famous."Helena Bonham Carter on Walt Disney
"What a heavy burden is a name that has become too famous."Helena Bonham Carter on Voltaire
"We all want to be famous people, and the moment we want to be something we are no longer free."Helena Bonham Carter on Jiddu Krishnamurti

"I was a mixture of being incredibly old for my age and incredibly backwards. I was born quite old, but then I stopped growing. I lived with my mum and dad till I was 30."
"I'm not dead and I don't have blue hair but some people say there are similarities. It is usually intolerable to watch myself onscreen but this time it's fine. I think it's beautiful and a real work of art."
"Most of my relationships were people in the business. Having said that, me and Tim don't really talk that much about work. He comes into my bit of the house every so often to vent but we don't really have very high, cultured conversations."
"It took me so many years to move out. I'm definitely a bit of a Peter Pan, reluctant to grow up. It all seemed really nice at home-why change it? Part of me would prefer not to have any responsibility whatsoever."
"I have to struggle to change people's perceptions of me. I grew very frustrated with the perception that I'm this shy, retiring, inhibited aristocratic creature when I'm absolutely not like that at all. I think I'm much more outgoing and exuberant than my image."
