Actress Helena Bonham Carter does her best to stop her children using iPads all day, but says she herself is obsessed with playing Candy Crush Saga.

The 48-year-old Harry Potter actress tries to limit the access her children Billy, 10, and Nell, six, have to gaming devices, but feels a bit hypocritical because she plays the sweet-swapping game whenever she can, reported Hello magazine.


“The challenge is to find something we all like doing and to get the children away from the screens, like iPads. Although I can’t be too strict as I’m a bit addicted to Candy Crush,” she said.

When they’re not playing computer games, Helena says her family loves to get creative together, with her partner Tim Burton being a gifted artist.

“Like anyone else we need to eat, run a household, but we're good at games and making things. Tim is good at drawing and painting, that’s the one thing we like to do together, drawing and painting and making things,” she added.
