Movie star Helena Bonham Carter loves starring in boyfriend Tim Burton's films but wishes he would give her more glamourous roles.

Burton's latest movie CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY sees Bonham Carter toning down her Hollywood beauty to play CHARLIE's bedraggled mother.

The couple found love when they first worked together on PLANET OF THE APES where the actress had to spend hours in make-up to achieve the wrinkly primate look.

She says, "It was a very small part so it's hardly a career move.

"When I had a word every now and then I got really nervous. I also had to put these fake teeth in, which made me look like a chipmunk."
