Oscars: Tim Burton and Helena Bonham Carter need to borrow some cash
Helena Bonham Carter and Tim Burton made a beeline for the bar after her name wasn't called as the supporting actress winner, but there wasn't an ounce of despair in her eyes. "I can relax now. The pressure is off."
Her director companion looked flummoxed, though, having neither a credit card nor cash with him. "I'm very good at paying back debts," the "Alice in Wonderland" auteur said sheepishly to a woman who signed the bill for his gin. "We're not prepared."
