    Helena Bonham Carter Shared How She Met Her Boyfriend Rye Dag Holmboe And It's Super Sweet

    "It was one of those moments that was so chance and ended up determining so much."

    In case you aren't aware, Helena Bonham Carter has been dating Norwegian writer Rye Dag Holmboe for some time now.

    Last year during this time, she compared their 21-year-age difference to her Crown character Princess Margaret's relationship with Roddy Llewellyn, who was 17 years younger than the royal.

    "It was odd timing that I seem to have a similar age gap as her, she said," adding, "Everybody ages at a different rate. My boyfriend is unbelievably mature. He’s an old soul in a young body, what more could I want?"

    One year later, Helena is taking another rare moment to open up about her relationship: "He's magic, and that's all I'm going to say," she gushed to The Guardian, before sharing their story — and it's really sweet.

    "I met him at a wedding," she said. "A totally random thing, which both of us nearly didn't go to, so it was one of those moments that was so chance and ended up determining so much."

    "A really happy accident, and it's an amazing thing,” she added.

    We're so happy for her!
