Actress Helena Bonham Carter and her director husband Tim Burton are trying to stop a celebrity-friendly London pub from getting a late drinking license.
The couple have written a letter of complaint to the council trying to prevent The Sir Richard Steele pub, located in the plush Primrose Hill region of the city, asking the authorities not to allow the landlord to extend his opening hours.
The drinking hole is a popular haunt for a galaxy of stars who live in the area, including Oasis singer Liam Gallagher, supermodel Kate Moss and actress Sienna Miller. Helena and Tim are sick of the pub's noisy regulars and are determined to stop the extension.
The letter reportedly reads: "We live extremely near to the pub and have to endure enough noise after it has shut. "If the hours are extended we fear our quality of living is going to be severely hampered." Pub manager Paul Davies is shocked by the complaint and insists the pub is not a raucous place. A council committee will make a decision on the late license tonight.
Meanwhile, Helena is the latest addition to the 'Harry Potter' cast.
