Can't believe your eyes? That's really Helena Bonham Carter.
The latest actress to portray Elizabeth Taylor, Bonham Carter will play the iconic actress opposite Dominic West (as Richard Burton) in BBC America's upcoming made-for-TV movie, Burton and Taylor.
As the violet-eyed beauty, Bonham Carter, 47, shows off a glamorous side most viewers aren't used to seeing from the star known for gritty roles in Fight Club, the Harry Potter series, Les Misérables and more.

Now that the Terms of Endearment Oscar winner has broken down the barrier, who among Academy Award winners and nominees should next make a guest appearance on the popular PBS series?
And just what sort of character should he or she play? Upstairs or down?
Here, then, are some recent Oscar-caliber actors who might suitably fit the bill. Please be so kind as to select your favorite. (And, in the comments section, do cast them in suitable roles.) Ta.

Following the Academy Awards on Sunday, Graydon Carter's Vanity Fair after-party at the Sunset Tower Hotel was the place to be.
Arriving shortly after 11 p.m., Jennifer Aniston and fiancé Justin Theroux relaxed at the Tower Bar where a jazz combo performed.
Aniston chatted with Molly Sims but Theroux was never far. The couple was inseparable, smiling and laughing as the night went on. Aniston looked like she was having a ball and so happy in her red Valentino gown.

It has been a long time coming, but director Tim Burton and actress Helena Bonham Carter have finally confirmed the name of their 7-month old daughter – Nell.
Born last Dec. 15 in London and revealed as a PEOPLE exclusive, Nell Burton had a gestation period for her name almost as long as the pregnancy itself. The creative couple had difficulty agreeing a moniker.
Bonham Carter, 42, confirmed the name during a phone interview with the Jewish Journal while on the set of Terminator Salvation in New Mexico.
Bonham Carter said her daughter was named Nell after "all the Helens in the family." The actress's mother is named Elena and her grandmother was called Helene.

"He decorates it with dead babies and slime balls and things," Carter, 41, tells Playboy magazine in its January issue, about trimming the tree with boyfriend (of six years) Burton, 49. "It looks lovely and glittery from afar, and then as you get closer, you realize it's rather gory."
