Bonham Carter plays cleaner, cook in “Toast”
Bonham Carter, nominated for an Oscar for playing Queen Elizabeth in “The King’s Speech,” plays Slater’s stepmother _ a cleaner _ in “Toast.” She presented the movie at the Berlin film festival Wednesday.
Bonham Carter said she’d “never been asked to play a cleaner before and I’d never been asked to do (British) Midlands working class.”
The actress says she’s a near-compulsive cookbook buyer but doesn’t cook that often. For “Toast,” in which her character’s cooking plays a central part, she was taught how to make lemon meringue pie.
Amazingly, the three-week shoot wasn’t fattening because “there was a lot of arduous cleaning.”
