Helena Bonham Carter who played the late Queen Mother in the Oscar winning King’s Speech and also starred in the Harry Potter film franchise is so concerned about the scouring of planet earth’s oceans that she is willing to pose completely starkers with a humungous fish between her legs.
She also said she was more afraid of the fish than of stripping naked for a photo shoot.
Ms Bonham Carter said: “I’m actually very phobic about fish so when Greta asked me to be photographed naked with a 27KG tuna I was more worried about touching it than getting my kit off.
“Having said that, I conquered my fears and by the ned of the morning we’d truly bonded.”
She added: “He will be my Valentine.”
The 48-year-old, who split with film director Tim Burton last year, spoke passionately about a new campaign to protect marine reserves in the British Overseas Territories.
She told the Evening Standards: “There is a new movement, spearheaded by the Blue Marine Foundation and others, encouraging the Government to invest in creating marine reserves – fish refuges really – where they are safe from the ravages of industrial-scale fishing and where they can regenerate.”
