Helena Bonham Carter Makes a Better Liz Taylor Than Lindsay Lohan – Photo of the Week
Looking totally unlike herself, Helena Bonham Carter went glamazon to play the world’s most famous violet-eyed actress in the BBC’s Liz Taylor and Richard Burton biopic.
While Taylor was all about image, Carter is anything but and looks practically unrecognizable without her messy brown mop, pasty white Tim Burton makeup and mismatched ensembles.
Unlike ‘Liz & Dick,’ which focused on Taylor’s earlier years (minus those times they stuck Lindsay Lohan in old age makeup for the hilarity), the BBC film takes place in 1983 and focuses on Taylor and Burton working together on the play ‘Private Lives.’
Bonham stars opposite actor Dominic West, but his makeover is more of a makeunder.
