Here’s another example of “conscious uncoupling” at its finest!

For the November issue of Red Magazine, Helena Bonham Carter got candid about her relationship with her ex, Tim Burton — who also happens to be the father of her two children, Billy and Nell.

In case you forgot, the longtime loves ended their 13-year relationship back in December 2014 and have seemed to remain friends despite the split! Color us impressed!

She shared:

“I could write a thesis on what’s happened and it is all-absorbing when a relationship breaks down, but I think we’re coming through it. I think we’ll have something very precious still.”

Tissues, anyone?!

At the time, HBC’s rep noted that the Suffragette star and the famous director:

“…separated amicably earlier in 2014 and have continued to be friends and co-parent their children.”

We had our doubts about their “friendship” since most breakups are difficult to navigate — but the entertainment powerhouses seem to have mastered the whole “friendly exes” situation.

She continued:

“Our relationship was always somewhat special, and I think it’ll always remain special. We did find each other. And really, the mark of a successful relationship shouldn’t be whether you’re there forever after. Sometimes you’re not meant to be forever together.”


Nonetheless, we understand where the Harry Potter alum is coming from, we just wish these two crazy kids would find a way to somehow work it out. Blerg.

We can dream, right?!
