Mom-of-two Helena Bonham Carter says she didn’t have to look far for inspiration for her tyrannical Red Queen character in the new movie Alice in Wonderland: She found it in her 2-year-old daughter Nell.
“I thought well she’s a toddler, because she’s got the big head, she’s a tyrant – a toddler tyrant, toddlers are tyrants,” the 43-year-old actress explains. “The no sympathy for any other living creature – that’s our toddler in fact. No empathy, just commands. She just bosses us around – dictatorship. No please, no thank you. ‘Mummy come here’ ‘Mummy go’ ‘Mummy! Watch telly.'”
Helena, who also has 6-year-old son Billy with her husband, the film’s director Tim Burton, continues, “An another toddler quality – it’s all about me, it’s all about her, never considers us, ask, ask, ask. So the toddler thing was a big inspiration.”

Jenny says the MMR vaccine gave Evan autism:
In the interview, Jenny claims that Evan did, in fact, have autism which was healed through a range of experimental and unproved biomedical treatments. Jenny says she made a deal with God. “Help me fix my boy,” she prayed, “and I’ll teach the world how I did it.”

She’s gotten so big! Courteney Cox Arquette was seen carrying her 5 1/2-year-old daughter Coco on the set of Cougar Town in Los Angeles on Thursday (February 25). The mother-daughter pair had a laugh and a cuddle in between takes of mom’s popular TV show.
Will Coco – who her father David Arquette described as “strong-willed” – have a sibling one day? Courteney’s hubby recently talked about possibly expanding the family.
“I don’t know. I mean, it takes a lot for us to do it, so maybe adoption,” David said. “Listen, I like practicing as much as possible! But it’s hard… I’m exhausted!”
