Tim Burton gives Helena Bonham Carter the red card

Actress reveals how her director husband tells her off

Helena Bonham Carter has said that when she behaves badly at home or on set her husband Tim Burton shows her the yellow or red card, depending on the offence.

"He’s become a real soccer fanatic" said the "Harry Potter" actress of her director partner "so he has yellow cards and red cards. I’m always being sent off."

Bonham Carter, who often works with Burton, said that she's already received cards when working together on set for twitching her eyebrows and gesticulating too much.

"It’s pretty playful but that’s good for me" concluded the star.

"Dark Shadows", Burton and Bonham Carter's latest film also starring Johnny Depp, opens in cinemas nationwide on May 11.
