Helena Bonham Carter Named CBE by Queen Elizabeth
She’s made quite a name for herself over the years, and Helena Bonham Carter was given an esteemed honor by Queen Elizabeth today (February 22).
The “Fight Club” actress was made a Commander of the British Empire (CBE) by the British Monarch, and Helena told press she narrowly escaped embarrassment at the hands of her daughter Nell.
As she exited the ceremony, Ms. Carter noted that the occasion was a ‘very very special day’ as she carried a pink bunny-eared mobile phone.
When the press asked Helena if the phone had gone off, she replied, “No, but the 4-year-old did.” Perhaps little Nell is getting a scolding right about now!
