Helena Bonham Carter cheated as she researched her role as Queen Elizabeth in The King's Speech - she "sped-read" through history books because there was so much material on the royal.

The Planet Of The Apes star portrays King George VI's wife Elizabeth in the Oscar-nominated drama, opposite Colin Firth as the stammering monarch.

But Bonham Carter confesses she took a short cut through Elizabeth's early years up until 1939 because she didn't have enough time to properly learn all about Queen Elizabeth II's mother, who died in 2002 at the grand old age of 101.

She says, "I just pretended ...

Check out Helena Bonham Carter at the Moet British Independent Film Awards in London over the weekend. Can you believe she made Vanity Fair's "Best Dressed" list?

The British actress was amused when she received the accolade because she's usually on "worst dressed" lists.

She told the New York Daily News: "It was a triumph! It made me laugh because I thought it was a joke when I found out. But when I saw the article, I thought, 'Oh, the photos they've chosen are as bad as the ones they print when I'm worst dressed."

No one is more “curioser and curioser” than goth cinematic artist Tim Burton. The 51-year director resembles many of his strangely wonderful, yet tragic characters. Born in sunny Burbank, California, Burton, who idolized monsters and grim poet Edgar Allan Poe, often hides behind a camera or oversized indigo-hued glasses. Whether surrounded by hungry paparrazzi in Los Angeles or strolling with his wife Helena Bonham Carter near their home in the UK, he’s often hunched over with wide eyes staring back.
