Actress Helena Bonham Carter opens up about 21 year age gap between her and her boyfriend.
Helena, 53, who has kids Billy, 16, and Nell, 11, with filmmaker Tim Burton - is currently dating 32-year-old writer Rye Dag Holmboe, and she doesn't have any concerns about their age gap, reports say.
The Fight Club actress said: "Everybody ages at a different rate. My boyfriend is unbelievably mature. He's an old soul in a young body, what more could I want?
"People are slightly frightened of older women, but he isn't. Women can be very powerful when they're older."
Helena also feels it's fun to date an older woman.
"Why can't we be sexually and romantically attractive just when our eggs are expired? Actually, it's much more fun because we're so free of the terror, there is no consequence, it's all just for fun," she added.
