helena bonham carter dominic west bbc america burton and taylor first look

Lindsay Lohan gave us a performance that was AH-MAZING for all the wrong reasons in Lifetime's epic Liz & Dick!

But BBC America thinks they can do a classier job capturing the magic of Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor with their upcoming Burton and Taylor!

This time, Helena Bonham Carter and The Wire's Dominic West will play the ultimate on-again, off-agains, and they've got the makeup to prove it!

We think Helena looks incredible! This might also be the first time since she married Tim Burton that we've seen her without her kooky goth look! She may be the only actress who has to tone down the eyeliner for the Cleopatra scenes! LOLz!

One serious question though- why not Johnny Depp for Richard Burton? He loves working with Helena! Sure, he doesn't look anything like him, but come on! Johnny Depp!

What do U think? Helena or Lindsay??

    In The King's Speech she was pretty much 'without her kooky goth look'…? But I think that was a bit of a sleeper movie that year. ;)

    Basically no one can portray this legendary couple. But Helena of course is way better than Lindsay. The problem is with the actor, he has a wooden rigid face that lacks the warm sexy looks of Sir Burton. And seriously Perez, Johnny Depp for Burton??? He is a hippie at best.

    There's always someone who will be better @ doing something better than someone else. Only in tabloids is it recognized.

    Lindsay can't even play Lindsay. She mugged her way through the Disney films and wasn't all that impressive in her transition years. As an adult, she does nothing to improve her meager skills so now she is a parody of herself. It will be interesting to see Helena play this part.

    It is almost impossible for any actress to play Liz . Not to mention without Liz's accent .

    Glad Lindsay is in a treatment center and isn't reading/hearing all the humiliating press about her, once again, over the Liz & Dick bomb. I remember reading a 'friend of Lindsays' commenting that Lindsay was really suprised, rather shocked, that people didnt like L&D. Allegedly, Lindsay was baffled at the public response & critics really bashing comments. I felt sad for her, having her hopes up so high that people were going to really like her in the film. She really thought it was her rocket to A List status. Then she gets humilated by L&D media coverage, couple of days later she had the NY assualt thing, which showed L had lost it in public. Then shes arrested, bailed out to find LA had charged her w/numerous charges for the crash. I felt her splat like she'd jumped off the Statue of Libertys head and landed on my feet. I think those days, last Nov (?) -were The End of Hollywood Lilo. I wish her parents could bring themselves up to speed & stop calling attention to how 'gone' she has become. Bless u Linds. Noone likes to be mocked to death.

    Re: Damian – Sleeper? Loved the movie and didn't Colin Firth win best actor for his performance? Can't remember how the movie itself did as far as winning best picture or not (and had too many glasses of wine to look it up).

  14. Mmmm, Collin. says – reply to this

    Re: teeter totter – LOVED The Kings Speech. Was moved to goose-bumps. Helena was fabulous in it and Collins is my sweet movie star crush. Not suprised Lindsay Lohan fans think Lindsay in Herbie was both a superior actress than Helena is & Herbie superior film to The Kings Speech. Explains why Lindsay can't get a job in a cat litter commercial now.

    I always feel that Lilly Collins bears quite a resemblance to a younger Liz Taylor.

    Helena looks smokin' HOT!!! =) I agree Johnny of course would be good in this because he's good at anything lol. Plus it would be great for them to actually have proper love scenes in a film! But I guess they can't be in everything together .. sadly.

    I wish Lindz could learn what truly makes a woman ATTRACTIVE & SEXY. Lindz is always spending her money (that should go to paying her TAXES &paying back $ to people she owes A LOT of $ to) -all L's money, efforts & time appears to be spent on NOTHING MORE than CREATING THE ILLUSION that she is BEAUTIFUL, FAMOUS, & AN AMAZING MOVIE STAR. She can take pretty pictures & have 'her people' push out 'press releases' SAYING she's a Star. Like the 2 bogus DWTS offers that were totally made up, conviently unconfirmable & were utterly ridicoulous considering DWTS REQUIRES enormous amounts of training, cooperation, dedication & A LONG TIME COMMITMENT, & both these RIDICULOUS $$$$ OFFERS allegedy came in when LL was facing CRIMINAL PROSECUTION for crimes/breaking probation -that most likely would result in a JAIL SENTENCE! IF only Linds could figure out what makes people HOTTIES is their ability to be REAL, even if their an actress. Men want REAL MEAT; not photoshopped pictures with a headline showing nothing more than a bologna sandwich.

    Re: Aaron Saltzer – "There's always someone who will be better @ doing something better than someone else. Only in the tabloids is it recognized." What the hell are you taling about? What of the Olympics, Miss Universe Competition, the Oscars, The Stock Market, Mother Of The Year contest, Medical School Applications, Nobel Prizes, Pulizer Prizes, Gourmet Magazines Recipe of the Year, The Pillsbury Bake-Off, Student of The Year, Top Salesman of The Month, Macy January White Sale, Top Dentist of The Colorado Rockies, The Superbowl Winners, The World Series Top Dogs, Vegatarians vs Vegans, Home Birth vs Hospital C-section, Las Vegas vs Atlantic City, Obama vs. Romney, England vs France, Organic farmers vs GMO grown produce …..do you need more example to prove to you that LINDSAY IS NOT A VICTIM IN THIS?

    I don't know why, but Drag Queens are better at capturing a celebrity, than an actress is

    OBVIOUSLY Helena. No questions asked. Per eeenok "I wouldn't use Lindsay to clean an oil spill off my driveway." The end.
