The most eccentric couple in Hollywood, Tim Burton and Helena Bonham Carter have been broken up for a while and it seems like Tim is still not over his wife for 13 years, and is trying to win her back.
The director is going through a hard time without the woman he loves and has been suffering by himself in isolation from the outside world. According to an insider, “Tim’s turned into a hermit and refused to travel, even to Hollywood to promote his recent movie Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children”
“He just couldn’t face that whole scene without Helena’s wisdom and innate ability to see through fakery,” the source added.
The peculiar couple, loved for their uniqueness and eccentricity have two children together and are obviously made for each other. These were also the main reason why the fans were shocked when the two announced their divorce in 2014.
Helena addressed their breakup before and shared that it was hard to end such a long relationship but was ready to move forward: “it is all-absorbing when a relationship breaks down, but I think we’re coming through it,”
However, as much as the actress is over the relationship, “Tim definitely would take her back if she’d have him. He’s really struggling to move on from someone who gets him like she did.”
According to the insider, the chances of the two getting back together are slim to none because Helena wants a “normal relationship” – unfortunate prognosis for the director who still hopes to win her back.
“A reunion is never going to happen. They lived in separate apartments for most of their marriage and she wants something more normal.”
“She’s tired of playing muse to Tim,” added the source. “Friends are hoping Tim’s futile attempt to win her back is just him feeling empty after a film’s done.”
