The Los Angeles Times reports that film director Tim Burton based the White Queen in his new adaptation of Alice in Wonderland on TV cook and cookbook author Nigella Lawson. The character in the movie is played by Anne Hathaway.
"There's this very beautiful cooking show host in England named Nigella Lawson and I quietly had her as my image for this character," Burton said. "She's really beautiful and she does all this cooking, but then there's this glint in her eye and when you see it you go, 'Oh, whoa, she's like really ... nuts.' I mean in a good way. Well, maybe. I don't know."
