Tim Burton and Helena Bonham Carter and Lisa Marie
Burton first cast his girlfriend-fiancee Lisa Marie in minor roles in his films Ed Wood, Mars Attacks!, Sleepy Hollow and Planet of the Apes, the last of which he met his new muse, Helena Bonham Carter, on set. At that point, Lisa Marie sold all of his belongings he left behind by holding an auction. Burton's relationship with Bonham Carter flourished, however, and she has starred in various capacities in his films, including Big Fish, Corpse Bride, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Sweeney Todd, Alice in Wonderland, Dark Shadows and 2016's Alice in Wonderland: Through the Looking Glass. They live in adjoining houses and have a son and daughter together.
