Helena Bonham Carter has a fear of fish, oh really!
Bonham Carter overcame her phobia to pose naked with this magnificent specimen in support of the ‘Blue Marine Foundation’, which is campaigning for marine reserves to protect endangered species around the world. The fabulous actress looks incredible despite the obvious.
“I conquered my fears and by the end of the morning we’d truly bonded. He will be my Valentine.”
The fish in question was a Bigeye tuna, which belongs to the wider mackerel family Scombridae.
The actress appears nude while embracing a Bigeye Tuna in a series of photos in a rather unusual show of support for the Blue Marine Foundation. On Wednesday she spoke in front of a House of Commons committee to lobby for more marine reserves – to protect fish as well as whales, turtles seabirds and penguins – in the British Overseas Territories.
Helena says “We all have a responsibility to try and return our world to the next generation in the state we inherited it in, not worse.”
Putting your worst fear between your legs is an honorable way to show support! We are sure the fish appreciate it.
