The Enola Holmes star hilariously added of her toy: “Her eyesight is going so we say I’m siphoning off her youth for the night.”

Cher was recently forced to defend her relationship with her boyfriend Alexander Edwards, who is 40 years her junior.

‘Collagen isn’t the only form of sensuality; there is character, fun, mischief and humor. As long as you have the laughter, the intimacy will be there.’

The Crown star has been in a relationship with the academic for four years following her split from film director Tim Burton in 2014.

It comes after she told Richard Eden of the Daily Mail that she felt “very lucky” to have met Rye.

Helena and her former long-term partner, director Tim Burton, 63, lived in interconnected houses during their 13-year relationship, with each property decorated to their own personal tastes and styles.

However, Richard Eden of the Daily Mail reported last year that she had taken the plunge of choosing to share a home with her academic boyfriend, and even boosted her domestic happiness by adopting pet rabbits.

The couple met at a wedding in 2018, following Helena’s split from Tim in 2014.

Explaining how they met, he told The Guardian: “Something totally random, which we both almost didn’t go to, so it was one of those moments that was so serendipitous and ended up determining so much.” A really happy accident, and it’s an amazing thing.

Addressing the couple’s 22-year age difference, the actress previously said in an interview with The Times:

Everyone ages at a different rate. My boyfriend is incredibly mature. He’s an old soul in a young body, what more could he want?

People are a little scared of older women, but he’s not. Women can be very powerful when they are older.

She shares her children Billy, 18, and Nell, 14, with her ex-husband, Hollywood writer-director Tim.
