Bonham Carter Lusts For Transvestite Role
English actress HELENA BONHAM CARTER is trying to convince director partner TIM BURTON to let her star in his upcoming remake of CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY - as the lead character CHARLIE!
JOHNNY DEPP has already signed to star as the eccentric WILLY WONKA in the movie - due for release next year (05) - but Helena is keen to swap sexes to play the, as-yet uncast, part of Charlie.
She says, "Tim hasn't mentioned it, but I'd really want to play Charlie.
"But maybe I'll be one of the factory workers - an OOMPAH LUMPAH - squished into Oompah Lumpah make-up."12/01/2004 21:31
