At home, the actress takes control, but she hands the reins to the acclaimed filmmaker when they work together.

"At home, I'm the boss - he calls me 'chief' and I would say, on the whole, he likes me to make the decisions," she told The Times.

"[At work] that's where sometimes we get it wrong - he's the boss and I'm not as silent as he'd like me to be," added Helena, who has two children with the director.

Helena - who plays the Red Queen in Tim's new film Alice In Wonderland - said his dishevelled appearance is often misleading.

"He's not a mad professor type. His time management is good. He is financially responsible. A part of him maybe exists in an alternative reality but he is a very sane, grounded and good father," she added.
