Helena Bonham Carter Thinks Netflix Should Abdicate “The Crown” Immediately

February 2, 2023 / Posted by:

I guess Helena Bonham Carter hasn’t severed the psychic link between herself and Princess Margaret yet because Mags has got a message to share from BEYOND THE ROYAL VAULT (graves are for peasants, you fools!). She’s using everyone’s formerly favorite kooky aunt to deliver it. According to Variety, HBC sat down with The Guardian, and while she wisely declined to “contribute to the whole thing” surrounding Prince Harry’s memoir Spare, Princess Margaret’s eyes, ears and legs on earth burped up a message to Netflix that they should end The Crown now because it is no longer a “historical drama.” Oh, wait! Now I’m receiving a message from Mags! Please hold…. Yes, yes, sorry, OK, yes, got it!

Helena Bonham Carter Defended Johnny Depp And J.K. Rowling Against The Ills Of “Cancel Culture”

November 28, 2022 / Posted by:

Generally, well-tolerated kook Helena Bonham Carter admitted to having consulted a psychic to ask permission to play Princess Margaret on The Crown. But it doesn’t take a psychic to know that railing against cancel culture in defense of Johnny Depp and J.K. Rowling is a great way to transform yourself into a formally well-tolerated kook. Instead of paying some smelly hippy in a headband to read her Tarot cards, Helena could have just read the room and learned, FOR FREE, that J.K. and Johnny are perfectly capable of reminding us how much they suck without her help. Unless, of course, that smelly hippy with a headband was Johnny all along, posing as a psychic to trick HBC into accusing Amber Heard of jumping on the #MeToo bandwagon “because it’s the trend and to be the poster girl for it.” Say what you will about his aroma, but the man can really sell a bit!

Helena Bonham Carter Says “The Crown” Should Stress To Viewers That It’s Fiction

December 1, 2020 / Posted by:

The Crown’s fact vs. fiction controversy continues. Since the fourth season premiered on Netflix, fans of the monarchy have voiced their fear that the show is damaging to the Royal Family’s reputation, which, as we all know, was previously impeccable. Critics include The Daily Mail, “sources” close to the Royals, and Britain’s Culture Secretary, Oliver Dowden. Oliver thinks Netflix should add a “this is a work of fiction” disclaimer before each episode. Now Helena Bonham Carter, who portrays Princess Margaret on the show, has added her two cents pence. She told the show’s official podcast that there was an important distinction between “our version”, and the “real version”.

Modesty Reigned Supreme On The SAG Awards Red Carpet

January 20, 2020 / Posted by:

I don’t know which Project Runway reject fucked up the bedsheet challenge this badly either. And to think, we were so worried about Lizzo getting her juice all over the folding chairs at The Staples Center, we forgot to worry about potential coochie-contact with the upholstered seats at the Shrine Auditorium. However, Sarah Hyland’s short and confusing floral 4th of July bunting skirt was an outlier. For the most part, the outfits on display at last night’s Screen Actors’ Guild Awards were a lot more conservative, ranging from the tiered ruffles and billowy chiffon of a modest religious sect, to tailored suits. On ladies! Hollywood is confusing.

Helena Bonham Carter Used A Psychic To Get Princess Margaret’s Blessing To Play Her On “The Crown”

October 7, 2019 / Posted by:

Every actor has their own method for how they approach a part. Some do hours of research. Others won’t break character until the director says the words, “That’s a wrap.” The odd time an acting or dialect coach might be hired. And then there’s Helena Bonham Carter, who learned she landed the role of Princess Margaret in the third and fourth seasons of Netflix’s The Crown, and apparently thought, “Blimey, better get me arse to a psychic and make sure this is a-ok with Margaret herself.

Netflix Has Released The First Teaser Trailer For The Third Season Of “The Crown”

August 12, 2019 / Posted by:

Funny, that’s the same look I gave Netflix when I finished watching the teaser trailer for the third season of The Crown and realized that Olivia Colman as Queen Elizabeth II appears for a mere four – FOUR – seconds. I might have even let out a disappointed, “What in Her Royal Highness Hell?” in a terrible British accent, too. But for those of you who will happily accept four seconds of Olivia’s version of the Queen, then this trailer is your cup of tea.
