Very little public information is available about Rye Dag Holmboe — and Carter gives us a hint as to why, "I can't say much about Rye, because he's a psychoanalyst so he needs his anonymity."

She also revealed that he's incredibly smart and has a good sense of humor.

He's a Norwegian writer as well as a Ph.D. candidate in the History of Art at University College, London.

He co-authored the book JocJonJosch: Hand in Foot which was published in 2013 by Le Musée d'art du Valais in Switzerland.

His work has also appeared in magazines such as The White Review, Art Licks, Apollo, and several academic publications.

Ryde Dag's birthday is not known at this time, but the writer is said to be 21 years younger than Carter is which would make him 33 years old this year.

Carter spoke on their large age gap saying, "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?"

Helena Bonham Carter is 54 years old.

She was born on May 26, 1966, making her a Gemini.

How did Rye Dag and Helena Bonham Carter meet?

The two met at a wedding in October of 2019, but apparently, it was a chance meeting since they both were unsure if they were even going to attend.

Helena said in an interview that the meeting was, "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."

They have been happily dating for a little over a year now.
