British actress Helena Bonham Carter has revealed how she much prefers starring in films of a lower budget, rather than those that have tens of millions spent on them. Helena also admitted that her reason for preferring the lower budget films was not simply because they are lower budget but has more to do with the fact that they are more actor orientated that big spending productions.
Helena explained, “I'm always attracted to lower budget, not because it's lower budget, but because they tend to be better scripts. It's the scripts that tend to be the small arthouse film [that] tend to be more actor-led and character driven. Those are the stories that seem to fall within my taste range. But it's often been the case, I've done so many countless small, independent films that really 3.2 people have seen, so you never know.”
She added, “You do it for the joy of the part and not necessarily expect anyone to see the final product.” Helena Bonham Carter can next be seen on the big screen, when she appears alongside Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer and Chloe Moretz in Dark Shadows, which is released on May 11, 2012. It will come as no surprise, that Dark Shadows is directed by Tim Burton.
