Harry Potter’s Helena Bonham Carter Says Motherhood Is More Difficult Than Acting

Helena Bonham Carter says parenting is no easy task.

Helena shares two children with fiancé Tim Burton – Billy, 7, and Nell, who turns 3 next month.  The Harry Potter actress says that being a mom is the hardest job she knows.  She shared: "I’m not working right now. I need to be a mom. It’s much harder being a mom than an actress.”  

Helena shares that she's even taking parenting classes because "no one taught me what to do."  “I’m taking parenting classes. They’re teaching me some really interesting things, like it’s not your job to know everything … You’ve got to get them to think for themselves.”

Have you had a chance to see "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1" yet?  Helena's portrayal of Bellatrix Lestrange is one of my favorites.  Maybe it's because she's so sweet in real life and plays such an unhinged, crazy villain so well?
