Helena Bonham Carter Receives Honour From the Queen

Helena Bonham Carter has played a few queens throughout her decade-spanning career -- including Queen Elizabeth in The King’s Speech. Now, the Oscar-nominated actress is being honoured by a queen in real life.

Queen Elizabeth II has awarded the British actress a CBE (which stands for Commanders of the British Empire), according to The Hollywood Reporter. Other honourees include Clive James, Ronnie Corbett, Liam Gallagher and Steve Lillywhite.

Bonham Carter has a number of projects coming up: the award-winning actress will co-star in Dark Shadows alongside Johnny Depp and Eva Green. She also nabbed a role in the highly-anticipated film adaptation of Les Miserables, which features Hugh Jackman, Sacha Baron Cohen and Anne Hathaway (who worked with Bonham Carter in Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland).

She recently spoke with MTV News about her upcoming projects. Catch the interview below:
