Helena Bonham Carter's secret of success 'keep b*ggering on'
Helena Bonham Carter, who was awarded a fellowship by the BFI at the same time as her partner Tim Burton, thanked her parents who were both in the audience during the acceptance speech.
"I never thought I was particularly good at this. I've certainly had my bad reviews over the years, but I kept going," the Telegraph quoted her as saying.
"My dad's motto is KBO which stands for 'Keep buggering on', so I will dad," she added.
The British actress and her director partner both received the honour at the London Film Festival Awards in a lavish ceremony at Banqueting House on London's Whitehall attended by stars including Tom Hiddleston and Olivia Colman.
