Helena Bonham Carter and Tim Burton are quite the friendly exes!

Though the pair — who are parents to two children but never married — broke up after 13 years together in 2014, Helena, 49, has revealed the pair still have a “precious” relationship.

“I could write a thesis on what’s happened and it is all-absorbing when a relationship breaks down, but I think we’re coming through it. I think we’ll have something very precious still,” the Harry Potter actress confessed in the November issue of Red magazine.

“Our relationship was always somewhat special, and I think it’ll always remain special. We did find each other. And really, the mark of a successful relationship shouldn’t be whether you’re there forever after. Sometimes you’re not meant to be forever together,” Helena added of their relationship.
