Helena Bonham Carter Once Said…

Helena Bonham Carter was born on May 26, 1966. Helena is an English actress with a slew of unique movies under her belt and one of my favorite actresses I enjoy seeing for her unique characters.

I may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but I’m somebody’s double shot of whiskey. – Helena Bonham Carter

This is the way I view myself and the friends that have chosen me. I am my own person for sure and while they may be beer drinkers they don’t deny me my margarita or my whiskey. I like trying things and I like having my friends try things that maybe they wouldn’t have tried before and I think that is part of what makes the relationship special. They have their way of making me step out of my comfort zone or nudging me to help me get to where I want to be. That is really what friendship is about is you nudge each other along because sometimes the other person gets stuck and can’t quite find the words and the other person is there to help you remember.

I think everything in life is art. What you do. How you dress. The way you love someone, and how you talk. Your smile and your personality. What you believe in, and all your dreams. The way you drink your tea. How you decorate your home. Or party. Your grocery list. The food you make How your writing looks. And the way you feel. Life is art. – Helena Bonham Carter

I think I found Helena’s quote about art and life to be something only I thought to be true. I hadn’t quite heard it described so well but that is what I believe with all my heart and that’s how or why I do things in a certain way is to help show the world my unique imprint on art. So when someone says that they don’t enjoy art perhaps they should try to see it from a different angle… it isn’t only about paintings, sculptures or drawings but so much more.

I’m drawn to emotionally damaged characters because there is more to unlock. – Helena Bonham Carter

I think that for me being an emotionally damaged person sometimes I think that damaged people find each other. I believe in many ways it’s because the people that have had trauma or damage know that the other can relate to you better than others can. Truth is some people don’t want to hear about things that they don’t understand or they don’t care and would rather it just go away. That’s part of the stigma in life is hiding things because you don’t understand them, because the answers aren’t something you want to have out in the open, but they are.
