Bonham Carter: I'm the boss at home

Helena Bonham Carter has revealed she and long-term partner Tim Burton are clear about who the "boss" is in their relationship.

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.
