Tim Burton dated Helena Bonham Carter before
Before sparking romance rumors with Monica Bellucci, Tim was in a long-term relationship with frequent collaborator Helena Bonham Carter. The two of them were together from the year 2001 to 2014. The pair shares two kids: son Billy and daughter Nell.
While making a December 2022 appearance on the Therapy Works podcast, Helena spoke about her painful separation from Burton. She referred to the pair’s breakup as a “very painful divorce.”
At that time, Bonham Carter said, “It was a long-lasting thing. That’s the other thing — it’s not that finite. It never ends. Even if you divorce somebody, it’s a kind of marriage if you have children with them. The relationship has to change. It’s a very complicated thing, how to share the children.”
Right now, Helena is dating art historian Rye Dag Holmboe. In the same interview, she joked, “The shortest distance between two people is laughter, not sex. Sex is overrated — but that might say a lot about my sex.”
On the other hand, when we talk about the love life of Monica Bellucci, she was previously married to Vincent Cassel. The pair said their vows in 1999. The former couple who parted ways in August 2013 are parents to daughters Deva and Léonie.
