"I knew Elizabeth Taylor was inimitable, and I am never going to look like her, but then I read the script, and it was very moving and touching. It was a love story, and it was almost incidental that it was about these famous people and their famous love." - Helena Bonham Carter on her role in BBC’s upcoming film, Burton & Taylor
“Her veneer is bawdy. It’s sloppy. It’s slouchy, it’s snarly. But there are moments when the facade cracks and you see the vulnerability, the infinite pain of this woman inside whom, years ago, life almost died but is still flickering” ~ Elizabeth Taylor on her portrayal of Martha in Edward Albee’s Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf for which she won her second Oscar.
